Few questions. opinions needed
I am brand new to this forum as of 5 minutes ago. However I have found alot of valuable information here while browsing. So heres the scoop.
I bought a 2006 F250 Crew Cab FX4 Lariat with 50,000 miles have had this truck since 12/21/11 .
The truck is all stock with no aftermarket add-ons. I am only interested in squeezing out some extra power and MPG. From what I have read, the S&B intake would be the best choice of intake and the SCT for a tuner.
This a a truck that is used for vacations, dates, family vehicle, etc... I will haul a trailer full of motocross bikes but never heavy load unless its a trailer of wood, but still nothing big at all.
I would love to have a tow tune, a HP tune, and a MPG tune in conjuntion with the S&B.
If i was to get a few tunes along with the intake, will I be pushing the head issues, or would this require head studs? I will not be driving the truck hard or WOT for long at all, just occasional highway entrys, passing, or random "want to's".
For all of you who are in favor of installing a tuner on my truck, which tunes from innovative diesel should i go for without studding?
Or then again, should I leave this truck stock?
Also, a coolant filtration system is going to be first.
