Wink Time to SELL the dealer

Taken my truck to the Dealer Friday to get an oil change and start complaining out "an antifreeze smell" (pukin) - I wanna see how they react to the truck since they last saw it in August - 100% stock. Got 77k on her so hopin to play the Head Gasket issue up and see if i can get lined up for Studs n gaskets at a later date. We'll see

OH - BTW - Took her back to stock and MAN - can't believe I drove her for 3 yrs without the SCT and ID tunes

At the dealer now - Service Mgr liked the truck, said based on my reporting the "white residue" and antifreeze smell - he suspects HG or EGR cooler ..

Told him my mods - he was cool with em - "We're not pricks about it" so...Game on.... If he can diagnose HG's.... I'll be makin an appointment to get er done in the near future....

She runs fine- just workin it in as I have 23k left on my warranty

So.... Dealer confirms HG and/or EGR - He is cool with putting ARPs in under the stip that I buy the Studs, leave em in the cab, and pay for the Cab Lift on a separate ticket.... Looks like job will cost me $500 for ARP's, $500 to lift cab, and $100 deductble

It's comin together..... I'll be lookin for the studs guys the schedule to get er done later

Yep - She has a sneaky pipe on her now - I'll cross that bridge as it is in the shop - I'll just so happen to have a delete kit sitting in the cab as well with a suggestion " TIP"
