Finalizing my parts list!
I will finally starting my stud and gasket replacement this coming week. I bought the truck with 78k miles on it and started with 4" mbrp exhaust, SCT, afe cold air and Insight. The Insight was the best investment yet. I quickly realized how bad my oil cooler was clogged up. I drive 20 miles to work, all interstate driving at 70mph. And by the time I would get to work I would be in the 220 range and water temp would be 180 to 185. And then last month I started noticing the truck whistling from the degas bottle and leaking water on both cylinder heads shortly after putting the truck on the performance tune. Both signs of blown head gaskets. So now I have a big list of parts to install. Let me know what you think. I will tow a little but not often and the most weight will be a fox mustang or jeep cj7 on a open car trailer.
Ford head gaskets
Heads checked and surfaced
Ford oil cooler
Updated turbo drain tube
New dummy plugs and stand pipes
New intake gaskets and O-rings where needed.
Sinister egr delete
Warren Diesel 175 or 190 injectors Still not sure which ones yet.
Driven diesel regulated return fuel system
Fuel pressure sensor for Insight
Sinister coolant filtration
BD intercooler boots
Hamilton valve springs and possibly push rods
Innovative diesel tunes
And of course Rev-X.
Intercooler and tranny will be next on the list. Going to start with my coolant flush this weekend. Is there anything I am forgetting. Please let me know. Thanks for any info or help.
