Stock 07 F250 Question

I've got an 07 F250 with an SCT Livewire, no custom tunes and magnaflow exhaust. Other than that the truck is completely stock..this is my first diesel and read a lot on forums, but not sure where I should start. I'm open and thankful for any and all ideas and advice!

Welcome! I too have an '07 and love it! You will learn alot here on the forum.

I recommend installling a coolant filter kit. The are ~$150 and it can be easily installed in your driveway in about 1-2 hours (if you are taking your time).

My "humble" opinion is that they are all the same. I fabricated my filter kit but if I had to do it again, I would buy a Sinister kit. It looks like a good product that comes complete with all the clamps and ball valves. If you go with another manufacturer, be careful to read carefully what all comes in the kit because some do not include the valves and clamps.

Good Luck!

Yea after you recommended that I did a basic search and saw the sinister one. I think I may look more into that one. Thanks again!

Just weld both ends shut on it then no exhaust can get in and it passes a visual inspection.
