03 Ford Excursion

Have a question for everyone here ! First of all its my first diesel but been a Ford guy my whole life !! 6.0 with deleted egr , new oem oil cooler, switched to green coolant and made my own coolant filtration system and blue spring !! Also lost cat and muffler!! Have 105 hp supwrchips on her now and afe stage 1 that I modified into a stage 2 with ram air !! I have a edge cts also !! Sorry I keep remembering more stuff !! Anyways am thinking of selling programmer I have now and getting sct 3000 instead but my only concern is that the sct has 165 hp setting that I will initially not use but it wont take but a day or two and I will !! Havent done studs yet cause they r still working good but will they with the extra 60 horse ??? It has 130, 000 on it and runs strong !!!! Have been running Amsoil in everything for 55, 000 !!Any oppinions on this would b appreciated !!!!! Thanks

No I got rid of the yellow because of the silica it supposedly had in it and the fairly big reputable diesel shop that changed my oil cooler and deleted my egr put green in it ! Dont remember what kind it was but its silica free !!

Yes you should be fine. Once you can get custom tunes I would. Alot of tuners make tunes that are head bolt safe.

The green coolant doesn't have the cavitation protection you need. I'd flush it out and replace with an EL-C (red) coolant before you have issues.

Good deal on the programmer!

I put the anti cavitation additive in my coolant and have it tested every few months! Plus my coolant filter has it in it so when I change that it slowly releases into my system !!

F100 monitor makes use of or un 2WD 70's wheelhouse zoals THEY are. This conversion is almost ENTIRELY Abandoned ten favor of un Greater Control configuration,
The Bronco sector as swap sounds like you're dealing satisfied un Scout Tracking. The problem is that YOU un-Bronco wheelhouse for the Parts of the Scout box at THAT time use or Just Making Bronco box.
