I have a question

let me start off by saying i am a cummins guy thats why im asking yall this question because i have no idea. My dad has a 06 6.0 completely stock that he wants to put a programmer on for better milage. I no enough to tell him to get the sct but my question is that all he has to do for now? Or does he have to do a egr delete or something? And since he is not really looking for more power he just wants mileage so the programmer will stay on low are the headstuds really nessaccary right now? i no all about the deletes on a 6.7 cummins but no nothing about a ford. Thanks in advance

A delete is the ideal fix, but do a search on bullet proof egr coolers. They flow better and fix the failure problem of the stock set up. While your in there rebuild the oil cooler and replace the screen under the oil cooler. Oil coolers and egr coolers like to fail together if not make one fail shortly haver one has been fixed. As for the studs that a 50/50 even completly stock 6.oh's have gaskets issues. Get him a set of guages to watch for high EGT temps and large amounts of boost.

HG'S can survive tuner (on low level) if you're nice to them. as in don't tow with the tuner,and #1 really stay out of the power until the temp gauge is moving.most stud stretching is going to happen during conditions that cause excess cylinder pressure. cold and heavy foot or towing or any other situation that calls for lots of torque are going to have higher than average pressure
