Part Combination Questions: EGR/Oil coolers and TBE
My EGR and Oil cooler are ready for replacement. Just got a 2003 F250 6.0 w/ 150k miles. The ICP sensor is leaking also.
I'm going to attempt the part installs on my own. Will a two 6-ton jackstands do the trick for lifting the front end? I only have a 3.5 ton hydraulic floor jack, will this lift the front end safely, I checked earlier and it didn't look like it will be able to lift the truck more than 4-5 inches...?
Question two: Kit combinations? I've been considering my options, and I do not have an emissions check on my diesel.
I have been looking at a complete kit from bulletproof with the oil cooler front mount kit along with an upgraded EGR. Or if I go with just an EGR delete would just getting a Ford OEM oil cooler be fine? Rephrased: Would the bullet proof oil cooler kit still be a good investment with an EGR delete? Also, will going with a GoGo EGR delete cause any interference with a Bullet oil cooler kit?
Also, while I'm in there doing this maintenance I will replace the ICP sensor. And I am also looking at either a catback exhaust or going Turbo back. If I go TBE will I need to get a tune? I have a quick car so I'm not looking for speed as much as I am reduced exhaust temps for reliability.
I just want a reliable truck! And thanks for any input!
