What to add to me 2006 6.0L?

I can spend quite a bit of money on my truck right now. i got all the main problems the 6.0s had. Just had the oil pump done..egr done..injectors done.
I currently have a edge evolution in it.
What could/should i do to make this truck almost like brand new?

About the only thing left for mine since it was "bullet proofed" is to add a air dog fuel air kit to it. I only run a small hypermax tune but with all the air bubbles found in the fuel I think it is the next best thing to do. Did you do the fuel spring, 6.4 banjo bolts?

You had injectors done, so here's my question, what caused your injectors to fail, or did you upgrade to something bigger?

A monitor is the first and last thing on my list of Required upgrades to the 6.0L that every owner needs. Everything else can be handled when the need arises.

The bullet-proofing thread linked above covers everything the 6.0L should do to make the truck as reliable as possible.
Fuel Pressure spring, is a band-aid solution same as the 6.4L banjo bolts, you should be monitoring Fuel Pressure in these trucks.
