If warranty is no concern I would do...
Tune, DP or Meth injection, CAC, intake/Exhaust, turbos. And add the other stuff (charge pipe, TB, etc) as funds allow.
I will be adding the injectors and HPFP when Bosch/ID releases them in hopes to be able to run straight E85 or damn near and keep my fuel trims completely in check.

This might not be a performance mod, but I think one thing every EcoBoost F150 owner needs is a catch can. Period!! You guys without a catch can, ought to see the crap I get out of mine. It would make you sick to know that that crap is circulating through your engine.
Catch can should be first mod.

I disagree on catch can. ... Maybe if you strictly racing and trying to get every drop out your intake. ..

I seen the can in person and wasn't impressed of how much it caught.

Do half a beer bottle to 26 gallons of fuel Cmon lol that's not enough to hurt anything. ..

Btw .. After talking to someone very knowledgeable in the ecoobost/performance world.

No bigger intercoolers are needed.
The stock ones are good til 700hp.

Also heard you run out of fuel before u ever max out the stock turbos.

Just sharing some info. ..

Hmm. I don't know about the turbos. But intercooler? No one buys one for more horsepower. They buy it so it doesn't heat soak as fast if at all.

I never heat soaked mine enough to lose power FWIW

A couple runs down the track isn't enough to do it, but if you're horseing around off-road throwing your rpms all over the place while not moving very fast, you'll definitely notice.

4 of the runs were 15 mins apart. ...i was beat in the head saying i was heat soaking. .. Just funny I never lost power. .

Usually I do 40 mins in between. .. and still was told I was heat soaking. . No power lost so I guess I'm crazy

Take a 2WD truck with 3.15 gears and an open differential off-road. Needless to say, we only did it once or twice. ;)

Still, even if your truck is 4WD and more prepped, keeping the RPM range up for a significant amount of time while not moving all that fast will get those IATs up there pretty quick.

LOL. Well, to be fair to the old gal, it never did get stuck (at least not yet), so there's that.

Honestly, one of the biggest reasons we put the Wagner on is that summers here so stupid hot and gas gets so stupid bad that we need every single degree Fahrenheit IAT drop just so the truck runs at least slightly less crappy than it otherwise would.

I had heat soak one time going up a 5% grade, hoping to eliminate that with the intercooler I just got.

What was ambient?
I've got some pre ATP logs...I'll see if I can pull them up tonight.
IIRC, at 100°f ambient, I was seeing temps well above 150°.
