Question new to FORD..

Hello guys,
I am new to FORD so please be patient with me. I traded my 05 Dodge cummins for an 05 F250 King Ranch. 6.0L 4x4.... It is all stock from what I can tell. I am kinda disappointed in the power. but I was used to my dodge being Chipped out from the day I got it. I just need some pointers please. Kinda some Do's and Don'ts.. If you may. Any at all will be helpful to me, as i stated I am new to ford it's like another world for me.

Thanks,
Keith

Welcome!!!

1.First flush the coolant and refill with cat ELC and add a Coolant filter

2.Gauges and exhaust

3.EGR Delete

4.SCT tuner and Custom tune

after my expeirence this would be my list of mods that i would do first and that are fairly easy DIY mods

You need to start with gauges. A Edge insight is a very good investment. Watch youe EOT and ECT.

Once all the vitals are good a SCT is the best choice in tuning.

Hey thanks guys for the info. I got a question, I had a problem on my dodge with a lift pump. and replaced it with an aftermarket raptor. does this one have a lift pump as well and if so would it be worth while to replace?. I had major issues with the fuel delivery system on my dodge. Just checking if ford is the same for what to look out for.

Thanks

Biggest issue with fuel delivery on the Ford is the pressure. All you need to do is change the FPR spring and your good to go. Fuel pressure under 45psi kills injectors and over 75psi and your getting into the area were you could start blowin' injector o-rings. If you want to run big horsepower, you'll need some ARP headstuds. The most important thing to do right away is get some gauges to monitor your ECT and EOT (coolant and oil temps). This will let you know if there are any issues with your EGR and oil coolers. The temp difference should not exceed 15*. BTW, Welcome to Ford!
