wrdriggs's "bullet proofing my 6.0" w/ pics!

Quick story behind myself and the truck. I have been a tech at a local repair shop in CT for the past 4 years. Been into Subarus and other little tuner cars most of my life.

Recently picked up a 2004 f-250 Superduty XLT with 112k on the dash. When i bought the truck it was pouring coolant out of the exhaust and the oil looked like a milkshake. So right off the bat i knew i needed an EGR delete kit and an oil cooler.

Ended up buying -

OEM cylidner head gasket kit
ARP studs
Upgraded oil cooler
Coolant filter kit
XDP EGR delete
Driven Diesel regulated fuel return kit
UCF o-ring'd cylinder heads
MBRP 4" turbo back w muffler
Banks Intercooler Kit
SCT Tuner
Edge Insite CTS
etc etc

Anyway i started this project workign after hours and finished it up this past weekend - Here are some pics enjoy!

We have one turbo off a customers truck here currently but its off a later 04 with the 13 blades...

started right up after the HPOP got enough oil pressure.

there is no longer any cats, just a 4" MBRP w a muffler, sounds awesome but i do have a pretty good sized exhaust leak from teh y-pipe to turbo, and is a pain in my *** to get to and fix.

Looks good... Lifting the cab is the way to roll if you have one to use. Mines being done in the driveway cab on.
