Thanks for the recommendation on the meter, I'll check those out.
For oil, I'm running Schaeffer 5/40 full synthetic. I'm not sure of any history on my truck (bought it from a dealer), but I didn't notice any change after my oil change.
I did the bb when I had everything apart for the cooler, and I also put my fuel pressure sender on at the same time. I didn't have fuel pressure beforehand, but now I'm at a pretty consistent 68psi. Didn't notice any difference in how it ran afterwards, i think my pressure was probably OK before. I was afraid I may have bumped up the psi too high, but I got some reassurance on here that I'm still OK.
I did the CCV reroute soon after getting the truck, but before looking at the EGR. I've only had the EGR out once (when I did the oil cooler) so I don't have a before and after. I did find that a pesky little oil leak that shows up as a drop hanging from my bell housing slowed down afterward though. Maybe coincidence, who knows. I got my canister and filter off the shelf at Tractor Supply, it's an inline filter for a spray rig.
The Zoodad Mod involves cutting holes in the fiberglass behind the grill to let air flow directly into the air filter. Not sure if that was a good idea, but guys on here recommended it, so I gave it a shot. Didn't really notice any change afterwards either. Some guys said it woke up their turbo and they could really hear it singing afterwards. I figured that cooler air was better.
My truck is a Lariat, Not sure what cool stuff the King Ranch has, but I sure like the seating!
