Probably going to need new stand pipes, the stock ones are 2 piece and have a reputation for the bottom half getting stuck and requiring the use of pliers to remove which forces you to get a new one anyway. Don't buy the **** Black Onyx gaskets, get Ford factory replacements. Lastly, as far as tuners go, SCT or bust.
I think I'm still under $1k with all NEW parts and that includes the machine shop costs for my heads... I'm doing this on a budget! Ebay and forums are your friends! When I had to order OEM Ford, I went through Tousley, they're dirt cheap.

if u get the head gaskets from ford u need to know the dowel pin size since they are two different ones... 18 and 21 mm.. the kit also includes the head studs and also comes with new stand pipes. when i do the head gaskets i just do them with the engine in and the cab on.. im 6'7 so i have a lil reach... but a curious question.. u said the truck is blowig white smoke.. did u pull off the egr valve and see if it is wet?? could a bad egr cooler..
