The engine build begins...
...Tomorrow! and I can't wait. I will be having a shop do the work as this is out of my comfort zone and I can't afford to screw anything up doing it myself. After talking to the shop doing the work, they offered to let me in and do some more undercoating work when its all torn down. I thought this was a really awesome gesture as I spent quite a bit of time on rust repair and struggled to get underneath the cab as outlined in a different thread. They also said they'd look further into my recurrent TPS code and if they can't find anything, run a new wiring harness which I have been leaning towards for a while. The truck also threw another EGR code today so perfect timing for the delete.
Going into the truck:
XDP Complete Powerstroke Solution Kit with Factory Ford Head Gaskets
Upgraded Turbo Oil Return Tube
AFE Stage 2 Intake
AFE Intercooler Tube
MTW Stage 2 Turbo
Edge Insight CTS with EGT Probe and Turbo Timer
BD Power Exhaust Manifolds
MBRP 3.5" catless downpipe to 4" straight pipe
I filled up my SCT already wit custom tunes. Innovative tow, xtreme street, and extreme x; Gearheads 8k tow, max tow, SRL+, and Extreme; Quick Tricks Looney Wild; Total Diesel Tow; and currently waiting for my Truck Source Diesel Super Panty Dropper.
I also have a PHP FICM tuner. I'm running the Atlas 40 now and love it. I think once the build is done and its studded, I'm going to start with the Atlas 80.
