Anything else I should do/check while cab is off for studs?

I knew it was only a matter of time but I've been running the Extreme Street Innovative tune as my daily driven tune for about two months now and I believe my head gaskets finally bit the dust on me. It started spitting up a little coolant after a hard run about 2 weeks ago so I decided to go ahead and get everything done which was my intentions from day 1 anyhow.

The truck is in the shop right now getting ARP studs, gaskets, EGR Delete, New Oil Cooler, and I'm waiting to hear back on a price for the 58 volt FICM.
The FICM was an unexpected upgrade. I left my interior lights on 2 days before I brought it to the shop this week which drained the 5 year old batteries and I guess ultimately killed the factory FICM.

Anything else that I may want to think about checking/upgrading while the cab is off right now?

The truck is a 2007 F250 and only has MBRP 4" Turboback straight pipe with pyro, boost, and trans gauges. The rest is completely stock. It's my daily driver, don't town anything and i'd like to upgrade the injectors/turbo in the near future to make a little more power out of it.

Make sure they do all the updates on the engine HPO system. If you've got the cash throw some injectors in it while its apart. Make sure they have the heads checked and machined properly. Be sure to use OEM headgaskets.

before you dive in, check your blowby. pull the oil cap off and put a the lid back in loose.. if it bounces around ( not from the engine rattle ) but from the steam.. you have more problems.
