JMO but if you spent $4500 on the mods in your sig, you got shafted. The mods in my sig cost about the same. And about the 7.3l, they where great motors all you had to do was change oil and filters every year or so and it was good . The 6.0 is not like that however. If it is running like crap I would start with checking the FICM and Fuel PSI. They are great motors you just have to be anal about upkeep and fix all the International/Ford blunders with it.

2012 F250 Lariat CCSB FX4, Gooseneck and 5th wheel prep package, H&S Minimaxx, 5" AFE SS straight pipe, EGR delete with factory EGT sensor, 35" Toyo MT's on stock rims, and Bilstein 5160 shocks.

If its just a coolant leak, check the hose connections on your egr delete. Use two clamps on the "J" pipe side as a minimum (if hose clamps are used).
