Bought a stock 2000 F350, 118k, with 7.3... ANY IDEAS?
Had a 2005 F250 XLT, super cab, long bed, with a 5.4. Bought it with 10k for $15K off sticker when gas was 4.15/gallon. Sold it in June of '10. Miss having a truck, so I'm flying to Florida on Dec 17 to get one.
Bought a 2000 F350, regular cab, long bed, with 118k. Has the 7.3 powerstroke. Its my weekend truck, ie: minimal towing (heaviest ever would be a skidsteer), sort of a work truck for small landscaping jobs. I want to get:
1) Turbo back exhaust - thinking MBRP stainless because of the salt up here ($500?)
2) DP Tuner - econo, tow, race - but which hp for each? F5 or F6?
3) Intake - Diy Tymar any good? How to would be helpful?
Any input would be great?
Also, its my first diesel, who wants to give me the run down on maintenance? Oil every 5? Fuel Filter every 10-15? Trans how often? Cold start help (can plug it in) but checking glow plugs? Other plugs?
Anything would be helpful. Thanks guys.
