6.0 Mods

Looking to do some mods on my 05 F250. I currently have a SCT SF3 tuner and I have the egr unplugged and turned off in the tune, and the cat and muffler cut out. Where's a good place to start on mods? Not looking to do anything major, I've got about 500-1000 to spend.

Re: 6.0 Mods

I recommend the following:
1. Monitoring Device: Displays more than guages and installs way easier and will be cheaper if you compare it to what it can monitor. Edge CTS.
2. Coolant Filter, Coolant flush, and ELC coolant.
3. Regulated Return Fuel kit and/or Airdog II

These will run you about $2k if you dont go the cheap route. IMO (which is the route I dont recommend you take with these motors.) Hope this helps.

Re: 6.0 Mods

Insight CS or CTS with pyro

Blue Spring mod

Possibly fuel pressure EAS expansion for CS or CTS, would be pretty cool
