Upgrade Before Installing H&S DPF Delete

Hey guys. I got an H&S DPF delete tuner, i probably wont put the tuner on the truck until i get somewhere around 50,000 miles. just wondering if i should do any upgrade on the truck right now, before i put the tuner on? I no people are putting on lift pumps, so should i get a new lift pump? or any other upgrades that will benefit me and my truck before i put the tuner on and will be useful for when the tuner is installed?
Thanks

Lift pump would help a lot if you want to run the Performance tune. Also, you might look into getting a cold air intake and pyrometer as well. Other than that, I can't really think of anything else you would need.

I don't have any drivetrain work. These trucks are pretty stout as far as the drivetrain goes. It couldn't hurt to go ahead and put the lift pump on. That way, you won't have to do it later when you decide to run the Performance tune.

I don't have a lift pump yet, but I am looking at the FASS 150 whenever I decide I want/need one. They do provide significantly more filtration than the stock filter, so it can't hurt.

I am sure someone that has actually done the install will chime in on this. But, from what I know, I think it is just plug-and-play.

as i have said before, hold out until your warranty expires, if we had voided our warranty we would have been out $20,000 by the time the truck had 35,000 miles on it, now its got 40,500 and has to go back to the dealership again on monday.
