New to the 6.0 game Loads of questions

OK, Picking up New to me, 2004 EX 6.0 next weekend

As far as I know truck is stock (Drivetrain) and has a clear CARFAX and the dealer himself has owned it for the last year and a half.
Oh, I do believe the Kitty went the way of a straight pipe ???

Super clean YADA YADA YADA...........

Anyway, I have been lurking and reading EVERY night since I made the deal for it....
Here is what I get.......

1) Do a sinister EGR DELETE........ (on Order)
2)Do a New Oil cooler..... Was going to buy the Sinister one but it looked like the China junk ones ??????? Also replace cloth oil screen with metal screen??
Now looking at BPD oil coolers ????
3) Blue Spring (On order)
4) Coolant filter ???? ( been looking) Which one????

This is not my first time with Diesel....
I have owned

Dodge MEGACAB Cummins Diesel, thing was all done up !!!
Lost it in a fire....
Had a 2000 7.3 F250 Also all done up put 200,000 miles on it and sold it to buy the MEGA.
Have a Chevy 2500 HD now EFI live all done up......
Need the EX for the family.... So here we go...
Any and all advice with be much appreciated

I have the sinister coolant filter and like it a lot. Most guys suggest the IPR coolant filter. Also the IPR egr delete is much better, check it out. You also need some kind of a monitor. I use an edge CTS and love it. Looks like you are on the right track just read all the stickies. No need to change the oil cooler unless it is clogged. But you will only know this by getting a monitor and seeing what your EOT/ECT Delta is.

Plain and simple it just doesn't compare at all, just do a search on the forum as the IPR system has been discussed LOTS.
Get the BPD oil cooler, it's what I'm getting and I've been looking at systems for a couple years including toying around the idea of making my own and IMO there is no better system out there then BPD's.
Keep your EGR valve electrically connected as some flash versions cause the fan clutch to not reach full engagement if the PCM does not see it.

if you're going to delete the EGR, you will need to have a tuner to turn the CEL off depending on your PCM strategy. Most will tell you to go with the SCT(either X3 or SF3 if you want canned tunes). The tuner also gives you the ability to monitor sensor outputs.

I used mine to check my coolant/oil temps and learned that my oil cooler is on the edge of effectiveness. My EGR is turned off via programming, so i hope my egr valve is staying closed. When i replace the oil cooler, I'll also be deleting the EGR cooler.

A vendor on the org from sunrise ford will get you discount prices and can usually ship most parts free of charge.

FYI the gen II IPR egr delete WON'T work with BPD oil cooler setup I don't believe, may be worth considering when planning your build

I second the need for a monitor. I too have the edge cts. Kinda spendy but that little thing is worth its weight in gold if you start having issue's.
As far as the oil cooler, if you do find yours to be clogged or to be getting clogged I think most guys on here would agree that the BPD set up is the top of the line. They might argue about if its over kill or not but sometimes over kill is just about right. This is another spendy item but to me very worth it. I didnt want to be tearing back into my oem style oil cooler after a few years so I figured spend the extra and forget about it. And so far its running like a champ. No complaints.

Kinn, funny I ordered an edge monitor today.
I'm flying down south to get the truck and drive it home to New England I want the edge to get a baseline for how the truck behaves in its stock form !
Thanks for your reply
