I’m at 260k miles. I believe all of my upgrades (mostly bullet proofing and exhaust) are in the signature. Tune up/mechanics wise, what would you do with a $7500 budget? Thinking of flushing fluids, having turbo cleaned, & having suspension checked over. Wanting the truck to continue to be as reliable as possible

Has the STC fitting been replaced?
Dummy plugs and standpipes updated?
Still have the original EGR cooler?

IMO you (all 6.0L owners) should have a fuel pressure gauge. Lots of reasons for fuel pressure to drop beyond the regulator spring.

Yeah, that’s stuff is all updated. I replaced them all about 100k ago when I studded it. I monitor with an Edge CTS, not positive if it does FP but I doubt it.

Nothing will be able to get fuel pressure without adding a fuel pressure sensor (transducer). I believe you can do that with the CTS system. There are also individual systems that are available. Not cheap, but worth it since low fuel pressure can kill injectors. You asked about reliability - catching low pressure before $3k worth of injectors get damaged is about as good as it gets ......
