Default my 6.0L thread...

well, ive put almost 10,000 miles on the truck since i bought it back in june. after closely monitoring my scangauge, about halfway through my trip to texas and back my oil cooler started to clog up. a clogged oil cooler is the #1 reason for blown egr coolers.

anyways, i got new OEM oil cooler and o-ring kit on order, shipped 265 bucks, the stealership wants $480.

also on my parts order is the blue spring upgrade which raises the fuel pressure 10 psi to help with injector life and a little better throttle response. sinister disel coolant filter kit. HPOP screen. i will probably order an EGR delete kit on payday along with a bypass oil filter kit.

also on the list is ARP headstuds. and other components to do the headbolts/gaskets. i will have a shop tackle about half if not most of this...

as much as i like to do stuff myself, i just dont have the time because of the boat project and work. my deadline is to have the boat in the water by july 1st: opening day of scallop season...

yeah i decided to go ahead and do everything sooner and keep repair cost down rather than later and end up with a blown head and egr.

i planned on doing everything this year anyways, doesnt hurt to do it sooner. helps when ive had a rainy day fund sey aside to pay for the labor side of things. just gotta stockpile parts!

Oil cooler for those is so simple compared to a 7.3

Sinister has some really cool stuff. What's their filter mount look like? Just like blue-ish piece there?

dropped the truck off this morning to have the work done, so far the list is:
coolant flush
change oil cooler
weld the egr cooler shut
pull turbo, clean all components
replace the boots(maybe i forget)
change t-stat
install coolant filter
refill coolant with CAT EC-1 coolant
change serpentine belt
refill oil with full synthetic plus a bottle of rev-x

he's gonna let me know if anything else needs attention or replacing when he digs into it

i also asked him to take pics of the process so i can post the pics and info, he said he had no problem doing this...

also once i get the truck back she's getting new batteries. and MAYBE 2.5 inch level kit and f350 rear blocks(4inch)

Nice. Rev-x is good stuff, but dang is it expensive.
