What to do next?

Ok hi all first post bit have been lurking for a while.

Get my 06 250 back from getting studs,egr delete,all the updated parts.
I am running cat antifreeze as it is free from my work,rottela t6 5-40.


What's next?
Have gauges
May or may not run a tuner not sure yet.
T-fluid?
Exhaust
Any more must do mods?
Not necessarily wanting max horsepower but I like to play
every now and then but I do tow
alot sometimes 8 to 10,000 maybe little more at times

Edit just curious was 4200 a decent price for the job

Thnx Cajun what is the recommend trans fluid have about 210,000 on it and I have also heard that its not a good idea to flush the trans with that many miles on itis just change fluid and filters.
i've only had the truck for about 3 months and don't wanna mess up the trans.
I knew what i was getting into when I bought the truck and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I hope more people chime in on this because I don't know for sure, but I believe that was a bigger issue before the dealers started swapping the tranny fluid hot. I don't believe it's an actual flush anymore, they get the tranny up to operating temp then push new heated fluid in as they draw out the old. I don't believe that people are having tranny issues after this. I have only about 5k miles since doing it (at 80k) and have had no issues.

btw, I like the first two things in your list, flush tranny and exhaust, at least get rid of the cat. An oil bypass filter should be at the top of the list too. CCV and coolant filters would be pretty good idea also. If your not looking for max performance try an SCT with a tow tune. It will run much better than stock and you won't have to mess around switching tunes when you need to tow.

Thnx I was gonna install a coolant filter I can get the parts from work
For nothing to build one as we put them on our equipment when they don't come with one.
Would it hurt to just splice it straight into the heater hose on one line in and out instead of running a tee and a return to the other hose should filter a little more coolant that way.
