-egr
-headstuds
-fuel pressure
-and injectors

so around 45-50 my truck starts studdering and bucking but not in overdrive. so i was reading its injectors. what injectors should i get? should i get bigger ones? and same for the EGR i heard the gogo was probably the best but kinda expensive. so what would you recommend. also i read that gauges are very important so im gonna hopefully get the edge insight to read the vitals. i also plan on deleting the cat and muffler. for coooler egt's

First you need to start with a monitor solution to see what's going on with your motor, the current health and the issue you are having with "bucking. Without a monitor, and code reader, you are just throwing parts at it.

Things to consider about owning a 6.0L

Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.


Then if you have to dig into the motor, update the OEM parts that are prone to failure. Some parts will be upgraded with OEM, some with aftermarket.

Write Up: Bullet-Proofing the 6.0L PSD.

Welcome you will find tons of good info here. That being said your little problem could be a number of diff things so like stated before get something so see what's going on with the rig if you assume it's one thing you could be throwing money into the truck that is not needed.

Get the monitor first.
Check your deltas
Then get a coolant filter
Then decide if you want to flush your system

This method above is very popular and might prevent a clogged oil cooler
