Need some help... (but not urgent)

I was looking at buying an 06/07 ford superduty powerstroke 6.0 in the next year (2009). I have a couple questions...

If I was going to add guages, egr blocker($220 from elite) sct, 4inch exhaust (mbrp), injectors (90hp/ stage 2), and turbo (vgt-ss from elite)
Would I need to upgrade the fuel system to an airdog or a fass???
I know on cummins forum when I read someone adds injectors and turbo they recommend to upgrade the fuel system (or I am reading something false )

Would something like this be enough (stage 1)
Elite Diesel Engineering Fuel Systems for 6.0L Powerstroke

Would that be too much fuel for the vgt-ss?? (high egts)??


Thanks hopefully someone understands what I am saying/ asking

Diesel fumes make me horny

you prob shuold if your going to get the best benefit from your performance. you can get a regulated fuel return kit from ITP diesel that would help out alot as well, but the time to buy a diesel is now while they are dirt cheap (used).

holy moley, 900 from Elite, thats alot of $$$, ITP has one similair for 600.

im still alive and kickin...find me on FB..."StrokerX1"
SOLD my truck, another Diesel within 2011

NOTE: if your on OK and need some PSD work done, i know a dealer tech who does the work....PM me!

If my moms car would blow up I could buy one right now but it doesn't make sense cause there is nothing wrong with her car and insurance is high (Im 19) and there's no more room on our drive way for another vehicle.

Thanks for saving me some money also

Insurance is gonna be a lot more on a Super Duty than most cars. I'm 32 with no accidents or tickets, and mine is over 1200 a year. My old gas truck cost half as much for the same coverage. My car costs around $550.

Your insurance rates are super low there. Mine is registered in Houston. The auto theft rate if huge here, so that has something to do with it. I've had my other truck registered in rural Kentucky, though, and it wasn't but a few dollars cheaper than Houston. Everything seems to be cheaper in Ok. Maybe I should get place out there just to register my vehicles. LOL
