That's not enough. With the 6.0, it's very important to know your ECT/EOT delta, and fuel psi for a heathy motor.
ECT/EOT delta will tell you if your oil cooler is blocked or getting blocked, when the oil cooler gets blocked, coolant flow is restricted to the EGR cooler, now lack of coolant to the EGR cooler can/will make it fail, when the EGR cooler fails coolant can enter the cylinders. Guess what? Coolant doesn't compress, so the weak TTY headbolts stretch causing the headgasket to blow. Nasty domino effect!!!!
Fuel psi gauge- when fuel psi drops below 45psi at idle to WOT, you can cause damage to your expensive injectors.
You can read more basic 6.0 knowledge on this link, DON'T SKIP OVER THIS!!!
Things to consider about owning a 6.0L
What it comes down to is, you need to check/monitor the health of your motor BEFORE you start adding the go fast parts, choose to ignor this and you won't be a happy camper!!
Keep reading up, you catch on.
