Updating the truck, advice on some parts

So Ive put in some harley headlights, tinted the 08 tails, got an 08 rear bumper and now im just waiting on fordfreak4life for the 05 bumper.

Now my list of mods that im going to do are
Edge CS Insight w/ Pyro
HID Fogs, already have HID head's
Maybe a LED Light bar behind the grill
08 Center Console
05-07 aftermarket grill
single black 7" stack
What's your thoughts on a PPE Electric fuel pump? Anyone run one?
So either that or AirdogII
Hellman Fuel sump
5% tint for the rear, 25% front
Powermax turbo-later in the year
ARP studs, gaskets and injectors-later in year as well

What kind of paint do yall use on your exhaust parts? I know of course it has to be high heat, jw what brand and etc
If anyone has any of these parts let me know. Also, I cant find a kit for just making your exhaust into a stack, I already have a 4", I just want to make it from that 4" to a 5" which will be attached to a 7" black stack.

Just add to the list of mods yall think I should do for looks or performance etc and/or suggestions!

Also changing the oil this weekend to Valvoline 5W-40 Full Synthetic, should I use the Wix oil filter I normally use or what?
