PROBLEM PLEASE HELP
Well I got the insight CTS installed tonight and took the truck for a drive. I noticed a huge issue. Just driving like normal my EOT was anywhere from 9 to 26 degrees higher than my ECT. I understand that anything over a 15 degree difference is very bad correct?
I am looking now to have the truck worked on to fix this issue and preventive further problems. I am looking at doing coolant filtration kit, oil cooler, egr delete, ford factory head gaskets, arp studs and all the other gaskets I need. Is $1550 dollars shipped to my door a good price for all that stuff. I have a shop that is reputable in the area for doing head studs on the 6.0 but I have not got a labor quote yet. also is there any other parts I am going to need to have this work done correctly and is there anything else you guys would recommend having done while its already apart?
Oh ya I am going to have the heads checked and machined too so I dont have to pay for this again later.
