Question Bulletproof Parts

So I am ready to buy the parts that I need to bulletproof and just want your opinion on my list and whether I am forgetting something for the basic bulletproofing (also whether these brands are the best choice). I am planning on getting...
Sinister EGR delete kit
ARP head studs
SCT X3 tuner plus tunes from innovative diesel
MBRP 5" turbo back straight pipe (are there any other brands someone could recommend? Just because MBRP can be kind of expensive)

Also, I have heard that the ford stock head gasket is fine (as long as you put studs on the heads) and I wouldn't need the sinister black onyx gaskets, is this true (just to double check)?

Re: Bulletproof Parts

liberator performance has a cheaper egr delete kit if i recall correctly, arp's are good, definitely custom tunes from innovative or gearhead or any other reputable source, 5" exhaust isnt needed but its up to you and there are cheaper exhaust kits that do the same thing as MBRP but again its up to you, and i have used both the black onyx and oem but oem seems to be the best option

Re: Bulletproof Parts

You will need to look at either rebuilding the oil cooler or doing a remote oil cooler system as well as changing over to ELC and adding a coolant filter such as one from sinister or diesel site.
