I would do an SCT tuner with custom tunes. Matt@Gearheadperformance, Eric@innovativediesel, Vivan@Quicktrickperformance, and Truck Source Diesel to name a few. Your truck will run way better with custom tunes designed for your truck specifically.

I second the recommendation for an SCT tuner and a good monitor (Edge Insight CS/CTS). Custom tuning is the only way to go for a 6.0L that will keep the transmission issues to a minimum.

What Intake are you running?

Past that, I offer the following thread:
Write Up: Power Potential of the 6.0L PSD

However without a monitor, you can't prevent issues before the 6.0L has major failures:
Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.

I have all the information for the Edge Insight, in the monitoring thread I've linked in my previous post.

The coolant filter, most of which are a by-pass design, helps collect the casting sand, debris, and silicate gels out of the system. It will lengthen the life of the oil cooler and water pumps in these trucks.
