Ordering Parts for my 2003 6.0L Excursion

This is the beginning of my parts order for my '03 Excursion. I placed the order for the following parts.

Dieselsite Transmission Filter Kit Pressure Gauge Item# TFPG
Dieselsite Transmission Filter System Flush Valve Item# TFFV
2003-2007 6.0L Ford PSD Dieselsite Transmission Filter System Item# TFIK12
2003-2007 6.0L Coolant Filtration System Item# CFIK60V

I will update this thread as I get more parts coming in. I plan on doing some more remote filtration, synthetic oils swaps, FICM repair and possible tune, and some bullet proofing measures. I have an inquiry in to PHP about re-flashing my CTS Insight in to a Gryphon CTS. That is all for now.

Cheers,

Brew

EDIT: I emailed Bill at PHP and asked about the possibility of re-flashing a Edge CTS Insight into a Gryphon CTS. He said that it they can not do it.

I ordered a full set of Weathertech floor mats, cargo liner and a pet barrier. My 100# Italian Mastiff/Boxer mix has a habit of making his way towards the front of a vehicle when we travel. I think he gets car sick and I know he has separation anxiety. Goofy damn dog any way. But more maintenance type parts will be on the way this weekend. I may buy a second set of the All Weather floor mats for the 3rd row seating in the future. But I figured I would test fit them first. I don't anticipate the 3rd row actually having passengers very often.

Part Numbers: (Note the mats are all Tan in color)
Digital Fit Front Mats #450021
Cargo Liner #41153
All Weather 2nd Row #W25TN
Pet Barrier #60010
Pet Barrier Extension #60012

Cheers,

Brew

Just ordered a pair of Optima Yellow Top batteries(Optima Batteries 8014-045 D34/78 Advance Auto D34/78-950) for the Excursion. I received a pretty good deal on them. I used google shopping to find them. Purchased off of Advance Auto's website for 200.99 each, then applied there current online promo JN29 for an additional $50 off. Plus it didn't say anything about a core and I was not charged one, so I should be able to sell the old ones to the recycle yard for $20. Plus Optima has a promo going for $25 rebate per battery. So I should wind up with these for about:

Purchase Price $401.95
Discount(JN29) $ 50.00
Tax (6%) $ 17.60
Total $ 369.58
Recycle Old $ 20.00
Optima Rebate $ 50.00
Final Cost $ 299.58

I purchased these as I am seeing a DTC for Low FICM input Voltage. I tested my batteries with them in the truck Key Off 12.36v, Key On 12.25v, Cranking would drop it to a low of about 10.5v, and idling I was seeing about 13.4v. All testing was done with all accessories off. I am hoping that this may correct the issue. Either way they needed replaced. They are Ford Motorcraft batteries and no date was written on them. They have a copy right mark of 2005, so going off of that they are 7 years old.

Cheers,

Brew

I placed my initial lubrication order tonight. I have been using Amsoil products for years and am a firm believer in the quality of their products. I ordered the following in the quantities I needed:

AME1G-CA SAE 15W-40 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Motor Oil
ATLQT-CA Low Viscosity Synthetic ATF
FFK60-EA Fuel Filter for Ford 6.0L Diesel Powerstroke Applications
EA15K88-EA Absolute Efficiency Oil Filter
P603577-EA P603577 Power Core Air Filter
ATFQT-EA Synthetic Multi-Vehicle Automatic Transmission Fluid
BMK21-EABy-Pass Filter Mounting Kit - 1 by-pass filter mount kit
EABP100-EA Absolute Efficiency By-Pass Filter
ANT1G-CA Antifreeze and Engine Coolant

I held off on ordering the Amsoil aluminum oil fill/filter caps as I plan on installing a BPD system, and have an email to them about available ports on there filter mount.

Cheers,

Brew

I would order Ford/Racor oil filters and fuel filters.

Also, I love the DS trans filter.

I am not worried about the Amsoil oil filter and I plan on inspecting the Amsoil Fuel filter kit against what I pull out of the truck assuming that it is OE. I have never had a problem with Amsoil branded filters being inferior to OE. The photo on the Amsoil site appears to be similar to the OE element as far as construction. I will see when it shows up. Glad to hear you like the DS transmission filter. I didn't see to many people around here running them, but I figured more filtration can't hurt anything.

Cheers,

Brew

Yea, idk why more don't have it.

Now, I'm sure you haven't had issues with them, but on what motors? Other 6.0s?

No this is my first 6.0. I am not here to tell people what to do with their motors. I am only putting the information out there on what I am doing with mine. I have done more research on 6.0L PSD than I care to think about in the past month. I know many people only run OE filters. I agree that this is a very good idea. I personally am comfortable running Amsoil filters in place of OE. But I will ask you this, do have any proof that an Amsoil filter is inferior in anyway to OE? Otherwise we are just arguing what we are comfortable with running, and that is pointless.

I have ran Amsoil Oil and Filters on the following
Caterpillar 3126
Caterpillar 3126B
Cummins 12v (x2)
Ford 6.8L V10
SBC 350 1983
1GR-FE Toyota
4G63-T Mitsubishi
and many others

Admittedly the only engines listed there that are as sensitive to filtering and lubrication as a 6.0L would be the Cats. And even those probably have more in common with a 7.3L HEUI injection system.

I've never seen them side by side. As long as you know why most ppl do, that's all I'm offering. It would be interesting to know how identical they are. The patent on the OEM filters might've run out by now, so who knows.

Stopped in to my local Discount Tire Center and ordered five new wheels and tires today. Should be able to get them installed on Saturday.

Mickey Thompson Classic II Black 17x9 (M/T Part #: 1279170)
Hankook Dynapro ATM 295/70-17 (Hankook S Code: 2001588 Note: BSW Only)

Also my DS external tranny filter and coolant filter showed up today. Hopefully will be able to get these items on the truck this weekend also.
