DO NOT BUY "BULLETPROOFING KITS"!!!!
They are a waste of money and you are better off buying all your OEM/Updated parts from Tousley Ford:
Tousley Ford Parts Depot
You best bet is going to be to contact Odessa Cylinder Head in Clearwater, FL. They will hook you up with a good set of PROPERLY machined FLAT heads for your truck at a great price and with a warrantee. This is one of the most important aspects of the entire bulletproofing job! A lot of guys go cheap on getting their heads machined and they end up paying for it in the end by doing another head job, not fun! Spend the little extra money now and get a good set of heads for your truck and you'l be good to go
Make sure you buy the OEM head gaskets. DO NOT BUY THE BLACK OYNX GASKETS. OEM ONLY!! For 2003 - Jan 2006 trucks ensure you have gaskets for 18mm dowels. For trucks after Jan 2006 use gaskets for 20mm dowels.
ARP head studs can be bought pretty much anywhere online.
As for the STC Fitting, stand pipes, dummy plugs, FPR upgrade, turbo oil feed line and drain tube, and icp sensor/ipr valve (if necessary). This should all be purchased from Tousley Ford. You cannot beat their prices!!!
As for the EGR delete I highly recommend the IPR Gen 2 Kit. It isn't much more expensive than other kits and is so much better! It uses one solid piece of aluminum to delete the EGR instead of using a tube with a rubber piece and hose clamps which are prone to leaking. The link I am posting below is for the Gen 2 kit with a New Ford oil cooler and all gaskets you will need.
IPR GEN2 EGR Delete Kit with Up Pipe, Ford OEM Oil Cooler & Gaskets for all 2005-2007 Ford Powerstroke 6.0 will fit F250, F350, F450
After everything is all put back together fill it up with synthetic oil, flush with distilled water and fill with CAT EC-1 Rated ELC and you should be good to go. This would be a good time to think about an exhaust. The best kit for you money is going to be the Diamond Eye kit. You can pick up a 4" Aluminsed Steel Turbo Back straight pipe kit on eBay for less than $400 and the fit and finish is excellent and it will really help your engine breath, lower EGTs and the sound is just incredible!
As always if you have any questions, ASK AWAY!
