Okie Newbie with my first PowerStroke

Hello to everyone out there! I just picked up a new to me 2005 6.0L PowerStroke It is mostly stock except for aftermarket wheels and tires, muffler and catalytic converter deleted and a 6" tip? I want to modify or (bullet proof) it as much as I can? I am married to a great woman, but she wants to keep spending to a minimum and I want to take it to the max, so I figure somewhere in the middle is where I will be? The only thing I have done so far is change the oil and filter and will be changing out the fuel filters very soon! I've been lurking for a bit and have noticed a lot helpful folks on here with some nice rigs, keep up the good work guys and gals!

I'm single, so I don't really know where the mods will stop if I was you. If it's running great dont mess with her, that's if you don't tow or drive it hard. I would delete the egr cooler though as preventive maintenance unless it's been done already.

Thanks fellas! Yes sir 086.4, it still have the EGR cooler in it! Would it be better to do a delete kit or just plug the ends of the cooler? If the same cooler is plugged and bolted back in, all up pipes and such would be fastened back just as it was? The delete kits I have seen don't bolt on in the same fashion and having possible leak points? How have the delete kits worked for those of you that have done it? I really would like to do this in the best way possible? Any suggestions or experiences would be greatly appreciated!
