Order of mods

There hasn't been an order of mods thread, and I've been asked a question. So I'll have a crack - feel free to chime in, disagree & say why.

Stage 1 - bolts ons with minimum F250 knowledge/experience:
1.1) Gauges - EGT, boost, trans temp - Scangauge or Edge can also be an option with additional sensors where required;
1.2) AIH delete;
1.3) Intake - AFe, 6637 with cover, AIS (Ford H/D);
1.4) IC boots and plenum inserts (or billet plenums);
1.5) Hutch mod (fuel pickup);
1.6) Harpoon mod if you've got the standard tank (allows easier fill to the top);
1.7) Steering stabiliser (single);
1.8) Fuel bowl military spec O-rings.

Stage 2 - requires turbo off - so a bit more involved:
2.1) IH bellowed uppie$;
2.2) Gen 2 WW (compressor wheel);
2.3) EBPV delete (mod existing or buy delete-pedestal);
2.4) Hi flow turbo outlet (easy add while turbo off & apart)
2.4) HPx (a snack with the turbo off);
2.5) OCR.

Stage 3 -
3.1) 4" exhaust, either 3.5 or 4" down pipe, (don't go muffler delete);
3.2) Trans valve body;
3.3) chip, DP F6 or Hydra;
3.4) FRx

Stage 4 -
4.1) Levelling kit - extra leaves for the front suspension;
4.2) higher rear blocks;
4.3) rims & tyres.

Stage 5 -
5.1) etc, etc, etc
MODS: Hutch,ICboots,plenum inserts,IH uppies,G2WW,HPx,AIH delete,EBPV delete,hi flow outlet,CCV mod,OCR,Zoodad,6637,4" TB exhaust,JW VB,coolant filter,FRx,'05 HD lights with switch bypass relays,B20 ready fuel system(3 filters).Stratos truck seats,rear head rests,LED running lights, 285-75-16s.
