I'm sure you know part of this but I'll put it here anyway.
Get the junk Ford Gold coolant flushed out and replace with a good ELC coolant with an EC-1 rating and add a coolant filter system. Gauges, exhaust and an SCT with custom tuning is the way to go on the 6.0's. If you plan on running high hp tunes and play hard I suggest studs and full EGR delete. If I think of more, I'll post it up. Oh, BTW
