Anywho I knew it was coming so I found a local shop to do the work and flash my FICM. I have a list of parts I have or plan on getting in the next couple of days. What I need from you is anything that "NEEDS" to get done while I am balls deep in my engine bay.

Synthetic Oil/ New oil Filters
New fuel Filters
Full EGR delete (FCDP)
Intake Manifold Gaskets
ARP Headstuds
OEM Head Gaskets
Oil Cooler Rebuild
Radiator Flush
Turbo refurbish (planning on attempting this one myself)

Adding iTSX Tuner with Custom Tunes from Matt (gear head diesel)

Additional things to know about the truck:

Ehhh... I found a ford reconditioning guide for the turbo and all it mentioned was o rings... as far as the banjo bolts I suppose I never really understood what they did for the fuel rail or what the difference between doing just the front ports vs all 4 would be.

Most synthetics you will find are 5W-40.
Most guys on here are runnign eitehr Shell Rotella T6, AMsoil, or Mobile 1 TDT

bottom line, as loong as your running a good syntehitc and good quality, lubricated fuel you'll keep your injectors happy and running for a long time

Goodluck

I suppose adding a Blue spring kit might benefit me as well as far as the banjo bolts I have been reading alot of conflicting reviews as to the validity of them not to mention reading how the fuel system works I think the banjo upgrades would be a detriment... but I may understand this wrong.

But i look forward to any other suggestions. Im pretty sure I have everything that needs to get done, but if there is anything else you can think of please let me know.

Ok please for the love of god someone please explain what I need to do the head gaskets... I see some sets that come with what I presume to be head gaskets ranging from 150-300 (single oem vs both gaskets) and then there are sets that range from 400-660 that have all kinds of freakin seals and rubber grommets Ive never seen before... lol trying to find reasonable OEM head gaskets and ARP studs thats it... they dont even need to be in a combo lol Please help me

Ok well... I got everything else. Now my FICM is on the fritz.... I am going to have that rebuilt. I was also informed I should replace the HPOP Oil discharge Tubes and High pressure oil coupler. Is there anything else that anyone can think of (big or small) that I need to replace while I'm balls deep in my engine bay.

I appreciate your input
