Newbie Bullet Proofing

I bought a 2003 F-250 6.0L and of course was told alot of stuff was done to it that isnt. In the near future I will be purchasing a kit from sinister to do head gaskets, arp studs, oil cooler, and egr delete along with a coolant flush and filter. I will be doing a cab off on this because its been said that its easier. What I need to know is what other stuff will I need to get that is not included in the kit.
The kit has
-head gaskets
-intake/exhaust gaskets
-turbo install kit
-oil cooler with screen and gaskets
-egr delete
-arp studs
-coolant filter

Can you guys think of anything else I will need? Injector o-rings or are those reusable? This will be my first teardown and I only have a weekend to do it so I'm trying to get everything laid out before I start so I dont have a mishap. (Pulled/cut old exhaust out to install new, didnt come with any clamps )

Replace all o-rings, you need to update your fuel pressure regulator spring with the new one from ford.
Also probably a good idea to replace your ICP sensor
It would be cheaper if you bought all those items separate from different vendors eBay, amazon, tascaparts, etc

I figured the injector o-rings would be a given but haven't read much about people changing them. Why would I use OEM head gaskets versus the sinister block onyx ones? Also what is the benefit/reason to change the fuel pressure spring and ICP sensor?

the black onyx ones are garbage!
The ICP is known for going out on the 03s and they are a pain in the *** to get because it is behind the turbo, just kinda like a preventative maintenance thing if it hasn't already been done.
You need to make sure you are getting the correct fuel pressure to your injectors or you will starve them and they will die from lack of lubrication

Black Onyx gaskets have been around for a litttle bit and now are becoming proven that they DO NOT work.

They end up having to redo gaskets around 10-30K miles after installation.




Black Onyx have a high failure rate!!!

Alright, I will try and find an ICP somewhere along with the spring. Any recommendations? I did a quick Google for the spring and didn't find a whole lot. I will definitely stay away from the black onyx gaskets. Any recommendations on gaskets? I want to make sure I do all of this right the first time so I don't have to open her up again.

TousleyFordParts for fuel pressure regulator spring and head gaskets. RiffRaff Diesel also has good prices and they are VERY helpful.

spring: 6E7Z-9C165-B

Head gaskets: 3C3Z-6051-CB (need two)
