what else while the cab is off?

So Im due in for some cab off work.......mine as well do other stuff while Im at it right?
Scheduled as of now when the cab comes off........

Elite studs
BOV valve
Cold side pipe
4inch down pipe
Elite EGR delete and wastegate
Intake elbow

SO.......what else should I look at getting done? I have the Spartan 310 tune and run the 275 as my daily driver.

should I go with the Elite HPFP and an Airdog so that I can put some 60HP injectors in?
Turbos?........what is required as far as supporting mods to run the elite upgraded turbos?

If Im going to add anything else......Id like for it to be adding some power....since basically all the stuff scheduled is just for safety/puking.

I AM still running on the stock tranny so Im not sure what to do......

Thanks for any advice!

Definently spend the money on the HPFP and LPFP. Then (in theory) youd never have to take the cab off unless u wanted to pull the heads. I was in the same situation man. Got everything u did, plus the fuel system.

Nice truck by the way. Take care of those seats! Carry a towel for the ridin dirty club.

I cant say much bout the tranny. Ill be runnin the 210 till i go thorough the tranny, but alot of ppl are hard on it.
I just dont think its too safe to gross 28000lbs and be running that high a program. Gotta make it to 200k

thanks for the help JYFarmer..........Im leaning towards the 60HP sticks, airdog, elite hpfp, and ported rails.......what kind of gains should I expect with such upgrades?

Would I be able to move up to the 110HP sticks?

whats the electronic controller that Elite has listed with the wastegate all about?
difference between the normal?

thanks again

110 sticks will need dual fuelers.

THe difference between the standard WG and Elites. Is that the standard one uses a spring and nut adjustment to preload the dump valve. Where as the Elite uses a electronic gauge and servo to monitor boost and dump excessive pressure.

Lets just say not quite stock.

This is what i did for my truck. I didnt have money for injectors, and Im at the limit of how hard i want to push the tranny without em.

I got the elite just bc i dont want to pull the cab and its pretty awesome to have a ford with an ELITE common rail pump/rails. Simple way for more fuel. Ive heard from elite that im 110 injectors and turbos away from 750 hp fuel only. I dont know about the duel fueler(not out yet that i know of)

Im personally just going to use nitrous if i want that much HP. Not that im against fuel only. Just that its way cheaper, and its still pretty safe/easy.

The Elite kit i just got did not come with an electronic controller.
Ive heard from a few ppl that those electronic controllers are "*****"

This is the way i went hope it helps. BTW def get the King Ranch leather care stuff for your seats. Itll make them look good. I just wish i couldve found an 09 i wanted, they had the 4 bucket seats as an option. But im not havin a sunroof.
