Antifreeze in the oil I guess its time to take the plunge how far do you go?

Cabs coming off next week for headgaskets and studs. Should I do an egr delete, modded hpfp, air dogg, and injectors? How hard is it gonna be to sell a truck that is that modded when the time comes? I'm fairly sold on doing the egr delete being that it was just in for a leakin egr cooler. Thinkin its time to make some real power!

if your thinking of selling the truck,i wouldnt put all kinds of money into it,seeing as you wont recover all that money in the end,but if your thinking of keeping the truck i would do everything on your list if you can...while the cab is off,you dont want to lift it again later for a few things you could've done now...if that makes sence...

Who does your tuning? There has been some talk about problems getting things dialed in once you mod your HPFP and do larger nozzels. I would contact your tuner and see what they say before going that far.

Have you removed your water pump to see if the coolant is going in through there.. no need to pull the cab for that..

I've seen ep readings as high as 90 and 55 boost. I have an egr delete on the way so the cabs coming off anyways. I'm hoping this is the last time I have to take the cab off. They had the waterpump off two weeks ago to check for cavitation when they replaced the egr cooler.

That's really the only way to get coolant in the oil, that or the oil cooler has failed, but typically the oil cooler will put oil into the antifreeze, not the other way around. (Think, oil pressure is higher than cooling system pressure)

Are you SURE they had the water pump out, or does the repair order just say they had it out.

I know the tech that's working on my truck. If headgaskets are leaking won't that cause antifreeze to get into the oil too? Or is my thinking off?
