Just be gentle! No 0-120 mph runs.

depending on how it is driven it is not a MAJOR issue. For the EGT's and depending on the tune, you can have some fun but dont slam it all day long or push it hard towing heavy.

What tunes?

I run extreme street as a daily driver. I don't tow anything so I never change it. The first half of the pedal is for normal driving and the last half is hold on and watch the egts driving.. Extreme race is first quarter of pedal for normal driving and last 3/4 for hold on and watch the egts driving. Extreme race shifts too fast for me for a daily driver.

Any of Erics custom tunes will greatly improve your 6.0. You will be amazed at the power ford kept from you..

Yes, once you have your strategy, email or call with the strategy, and probably the sct serial #. Then get some new tires. Good luck and have fun.
