Theres not as many free mods for the 6.0 as the 7.3 but he could do the zoodad, fog light, and high idle. Those are all pretty much free.

The CCV re-route doesn't cost much. It's not free, but it is pretty cheap.

In stock form the Crank Case Vent (CCV) runs into the intake, this causes alot of oil to build up in the IC tubes, boots and the IC its self. The CCV mod either filters the oil out and keeps the vent running to the intake, or vents to the outside.

It just allows the truck (in P, w/ brake set) to idle up to about 1200 - 1250, decreasing warm up times and helping to prevent wet stacking.


Here's a write up for the high idle using an upfitter switch
