(My opinions only, of course.) The OEM filter setup is sufficient as long as nothing out of the ordinary happens, but it is somewhat limited in size. People have gotten a bad load of diesel (sadly,...

You definitely need water separation, and the sooner the better. I would (and I do) keep the stock filter head and then run the Racor coalescing filter on it.

I would go for the lift pump and auxiliary filtering and water separation, and a <$30 blocker plate for the EGR.

I put AC Delco 178-0853 which Amazon says fits 2011 (but not our 2004.5's, but they're wrong). Here's the review I wrote:

Those guys haven't posted in over 4 years, so they might not respond (or maybe they will, who knows?).
