Ready for order.....please advise!!!

I just picked up my 05 SD/CC PSD a few weeks ago and besides the lift, it is stock. I am mainly concerned with towing than with racing around town. I am going to order some parts on Monday and would like you "know it alls" to look it over and make sure I have it right. So far I found everything I want from Xtreme Diesel which includes free shipping. Here it goes.

S&B Cold Air Intake
MBRP Turbo Back w/ Cat Delete
PureFlow AirDog FP150-F
Mag-Hytec Trans Pan
Mag-Hytec Diff Cover
Autometer guages (Fuel, Pyro,Trans, Diff)
SCT with Tunes from Eric

I plan on studs and EGR delete at a later date. Will also be running Valvoline Extreme Blue 15-40 and 75-140 in Diff.

Thanks

Re: Ready for order.....please advise!!!

well, honestly it sounds like you have a good plan to start. If you wanted to save some money or spend it elsewhere, the stock air intake is more than good enough for what you'll be running.

I would skip the trans and diff pan and instead of diff temp get a boost gauge instead.

Just my opinion also, but I would skip the airdog, trans pan and diff cover and go for the EGR delete and studs. If your going to be towing with Erics turns you need those.

there is never a bad time for adding more fuel supply to the injectors, get the air dog. I would suggest getting an egr delete kit for $300 before it cost you more down the road

I agree, Airdog fuel system is not a bad idea. I just think added realiabilty and durabilty to the engine is more important.

Re: Ready for order.....please advise!!!

I am working on the head studs right now. I am just worried about doing EGR delete due to smog inspection. (Do they even look at that?) The cat can easily be installed for that. That's why I through this stuff out there. So the trans pan does nothing? If that's the case than I can save a butt load right there. Thanks for your guy's recomendations. I guess it's back to the drawing board.
