Just wanted to document my experience with installing this kit...
First a little background...I just sold my 2012 F350 Lariat CC LB with 6" Fabtech lift with a ton of goodies on her. I'm still a little sick over the whole thing, especially because it only had 23K miles. Things got a little tight so being the responsible adult I am (...or stupid!?) I let it go and bought the 06 F250 Lariat CC SB I have now. It has 275K! miles on it, but is very clean, had only one owner and I only spent 8K. It had a bad #2 injector when I bought it so that was my first order of business. I've never torn into a diesel before but after watching you tube for hours I now have a false sense of confidence that I could fix anything. I always heard the 6.0 was a sack of shi! but I never cared to learn why until I owned one and because I skipped over it...(03 Cummings, 08 F250 6.4, then 12 6.7) But hey, slumming it builds character right? (just kidding you die hard 6.0 fans)
so....once I started reading about why this motor has issues and some of the fixes I decided to jump in and try and make it a reliable tow truck...( oh yeah, I have a pretty big toy hauler and I really don't want to be broke down on my way to the dunes).
I hope I don't get blasted for deciding on the IPR kit (I've read some of the forums and one day maybe someone will write a movie about all the drama)... but I think it's the right fit for my situation. Don't think one kit is better than the other, just different.
I have from IPR:
External Oil cooler Kit
High flow coolant filter
EGR Cooler (No delete, live in Ca., enough said)...but no rust *****es!
BPD Water Pump
Got a compressor wheel from Barder
Tons of other crap that is systematically draining my bank acct...including but not limited to, new u joints and carrier bearing, used leaf springs off a low mileage donor truck, mine had 2 broken leafs and we're flat, and various other misc stuff that most of you are all aware of...
Sorry to be so long winded but I'm scared chitless I'm going to screw something up, so I don't want to be alone when I do.
I'm hoping to have this stuff in by the end of this weekend...so here I go...
Was going to add some pic's...but it's asking for a URL. I've never uploaded pic's to a thread before...can't I just import off my computer??
