Wow, seems like a GREAT list. There isn't an updated IPR screen, but if you are talking about having a spare to replace yours, then I would agree having one on hand in the event yours is torn would be a good thing. You probably don't need the exhaust manifold gaskets. I don't know why you would remove your exhaust manifolds for any of the procedures unless you have a leak. If that's the case, just double check your manifold bolts to ensure they aren't backing out on you.

The 6.0L from the factory did not have exhaust manifold gaskets, no need for them. Also the STC fitting upgrade will come with a new IPR screen and o rings. Make sure that you have the cylinder heads machined and pressure tested. Check out this thread-- How to Machine the 6.0

A Ford Tech in town told me I needed exhaust gaskets hmmm. Going to be drilling and tapping the drivers side for the EGT thermocouple. At the moment it's aft the turbo in the downpipe. Rather have in the exhaust manifold for a more accurate reading. Got the IPR screen just in case. Will get the restore as well, used VC-9 last flush from the Ford bandits. The write up from Gearhead on the milling of the heads is absolutely awesome, thanks a2elvis for that. As the younger crowd would say that's sick...

How important is it to replace the Standpipes, Dummy Plugs? Should I consider this upgrade as well and why?

Definitely do them while you have it apart. The older style (prior to mid-06 or so) were more prone to leaking. If your truck is later than that, you already have the newer style.
