Question Going to replace the OEM head bolts

Finally found someone in my area that I feel confident with. Going to get the head bolts, egr delete and new oil cooler. Anything else I should have done while they are in there? Also I need some opinions on the best tow tune on the market. Will be towing a 15K 5th wheel through the foothills of the carolinas...

Have them replace the HPOP screen, Upgrade Turbo drain tube, Upgrade Hpop fitting and be sure to have the heads properly machined... Ie:

- Resurface the heads
- Install new valve stem seals
- Install new rocker box gaskets
- Exhaust Manifold Gaskets
- Magnaflux and pressure testing
- Inspect for cracked seats, worn valve guides

As for tow tune, I run innovative diesel's tow and love it!
