How many miles?
machine the heads, coolant filter, bypass oil filter, updated turbo oil drain tube, drill out or buy bigger fuel banjos, clean the intake manifold, wrap the exhaust manifolds up-pipes and down pipe, fuel psi gauge, oil psi gauge, check your FICM.

Swamps ficm's use heavier electrical components than oem and also use lead solder instead of leadfree. Ten times the ficm for around the same dollar as ford. I've been running one for three months, starting it at 0-15 below the last couple of days, she fires right up with very little effort. One of the best investments i've made on my truck.
