Newbie Alert Everyone RUN!

Hey guys I just purchased my first diesel I picked up a 2006 f350 Lariat 4x4 CCSB with 140K miles never chipped just Turbo back exhaust and AFE intake and Fabtech 6" lift. My last truck was a Nissan Titan that I put a blower on and had two pistons come apart on the dyno when I started playing with pulleys and bumped the boost up and added water meth.

When I took it home the truck needed tires and at the time when looking at the truck I thought it had a power steering leak and the steering was sloppy so I made deal with the previous owner and took the truck home.

Turned out once I got it home and inspected the truck further the leak was fuel from the top fuel filter from the fuel regulator spring so I picked up a blue spring fuel regulator kit and replaced the leaky O-ring and no more leaks. I also tightened the steering box adjustment by turning it in until it got tight and then back 1-1/2 turns so it doesn't tear up the gears in the box and it helped a little but it is still a little sloppy so I will be looking into a red head steering box replacement. For tires my friend had Bfgoodrich Allterains that only had about 5K miles on them for 300 bucks so its almost ready to go.
tonight I also changed the oil with Rotella T6 synthetic..

For this truck I just ordered a River City EGR delete, OEM oil cooler kit, sinister Diesel coolant filter, OEM intake gaskets, OEM exhaust gaskets, Turbo bolts, OEM head gaskets, ARP head studs, and SCT tuner that I would like to throw innovative diesel Extreme X tune from Eric.

Well sorry for the marathon post but let me know if I am headed in the right direction to get this truck running right and not have to worry.

Here are a couple photos as well of the truck I have only had it a few days so I will try and take more.

Well I am open to suggestions.. Which tune would you recommend? I briefly read through and sounded like the majority liked Eric's tunes.

You see, in this world there's two kinds of people my friend....those with loaded guns, and those who dig.

You dig.

I do not want a lope tune it seems pointless and I don't like the sound. But any other tunes to look into or reasons those tunes are so bad? Or just personal opinion and like something else? I have never ran any tune on this truck so I can only go by what I have read online which is not very accurate most of the time.
