Looking at a 6.0.. a little nervous
I am looking to buy a 6.0 2005 lariat power stroke. It has high miles but is a mint truck. The stealership wants 17k for it, but it has 170,000 miles on it. I have been looking for one for a while it has everything that I want. I am a picky buyer, I was looking for a black lariat truck, 4 door, short box with a 6.0. This one has me a bit nervous because of the miles, but otherwise is exactly what i was looking for. Although the miles are high it has been well taken care of, its spotless for its age.
Anyway, I want to get it and add an sct programmer, it looks like it already has an exhaust. If I add a programmer and just use the economy tune, is there anyway they can tell if it was tuned? can I just revert it back? It comes with a 100k 4 year warranty and if adding a few more mpg to it will void my warranty, I guess its staying stock.
Why dont they make a thin spacer that goes in between the exhaust pipe and the egr cooler to block it off? seems like they would be the easiest way to block it off and keep it for inspection purposes. Then I could just throw a sct on it to disable the egr.
