Talking Intro/mods

Hello to all . Im in need of some subject matter expert advice. So I guess I have to settle for y'all. just kidding, no really just kidding. I purchased a 04 psd last year and have been gone over seas for the past year. While I was gone my wife had a few issues with the truck, so needless to say I had a lot of work done on the truck. I also realized that 95% of the guys on this org are more knowledgeable then the ford's service. I had a few things replaced such as both batterys, alternator, Ficm, and egr valve. While I was home on leave I installed gauges, straight piped the exhaust, installed Afe intake manifold, and unfortunately installed a s&b cold air intake. Since I have been home I installed a coolant filter and b/c I had green coolant and my delta was 35* I did a coolant flush hoping to get the eot down . Well needless to say after flush I still had 25 delta. So since I have the turbo off and the top of the engine exposed I figured I would modd it properly. I plan on putting arp studs in with stock hg, cleaning turbo with batomwheel upgrade, egr delete, elc coolant, fuel spring upgrade, oe oil cooler replacement, and at least a case of Samuel Adams . Now saying all that,is there anything I missed that I might want to consider? I ordered all the required tools and parts according to the stickys and threads. Thanks.

Turbo feed and drain lines... Also, there is nothing wrong with the S&B intake... AFE and S&B are both great brands

If you're doing studs, it would be a good time to add the upgraded standpipes and dummy plugs to your list.

Thanks l&b. The head gaskets come with new standby pipes but since I have never opened this engine valve cover I have no idea if the updated dummy plugs are installed. I figured if I needed them I would run down to the local dealer and pickup a set. Thanks for the heads up.

well just as a piece of mind way id say order the new ones anyway just incase you get in there and need them you dont have to scramble to find some. oh yeah and while you got it all apart you may want to do the blue fuel pressure spring upgrade if not done already

Hey thanks strokedoutlaw. I have no idea about the blue fuel spring but I got one coming. I will probably get the dummy plugs just to be on the safe side.
