If you could just get 2 upgrades to start with...

Wife is going to let me spend a bit of her bonus check on Big Red. So I have decided on a turbo back system with a muffler as one thing. What would be the one other thing you would do if you had about 300 to 500 bucks to spend? Motor is still all OEM Ford and I pull a racecar trailer and not looking to turn this truck into a monster truck.... yet

05 F250 SCLB. 75k Water filter, blue spring upgrade,Magnaflow 4" turbo back system w/muffler and SCT tuner with custom tunes by Drew.

SCT with Drew's tunes or a FICM tune was kind of where I was leaning myself :)

Bingo SCT and Drews custom tunes, make sure you wait until after you get you turbo back system on and let drew know all mods as well as what you tow so he can properly build your custom tunes.

Do the egr delete when the coolers go bad. No performance gain? Spend the money wisely get exhaust and sct first.

If the EGR cooler goes, there's a good chance the HG go too shortly after. Wy not take care of the problems first and foremost, then worry about powah!
