Cant make up my mind at all
Well the HPOP went out on my truck and I was thinking of getting rid of it after I fixed it but as I think about it more and more I dont want to spend that kinda money then get rid of it cause it would be a waste. So I figure if I am that far into the motor all ready why not do it all so I dont have to tear back into it. Well then I figured if im going to tear into it I might as well hold onto it. I love the truck I was just going to sell it and get a cheaper vehicle but I never do thats what I was going to do before but ended up buying this instead lol. So I put together a list of parts I want to do. The truck has 203k miles on it and ran like a dream before the HPOP went out besides cold starts which I assume was the HPOP going out. FICM and injectors all test out good. Running T-5 oil with Rev-X. Here is a list I plan on doing. IF I decide to keep it.
6.4 Banjo bolts
Upgraded Blue fuel pressure spring
6.0 solution kit (studs, egr delete, all new gaskets, oil cooler ect.)
4" straight pipe exhaust 6" tip
SCT IDP tunes with extreme
PHP FICM tuning
So far this is what I have came up with. Reason being I have to replace the HPOP so I figued if Im right there I might as well do the oil cooler just incase and if I am going to do that I might as well do the EGR cooler since I did the oil cooler. THen I was like well crap I just did that I got 203K on my gaskets I might as well replace them while I got the motor tore open and put studs in so I dont have to worry about blown headgaskets after doing all this work. Im sure you all know how it starts out as one thing and keeps building faster.
