help me in the right direction

Well I have never been a diesel guy but I just bought a 2000 F250 diesel, 6 sp, 106000 miles, long bed and am going to use it for moving my 3000lbs camper and 6000lbs trailer. So tell me if you have some suggestions, this is what I have planed:

4" turbo back ss magna flow exost
Afe stage 2 intake
Edge with attuid programmer
CPS sensor from black cloud diesel

I really want it to bereliable, quick and get dencent MPG.

Also the owner before me says it drips some oil by the radator and thinks the turbo is going out. Is this some thing that needs to be changed right away? If it does I was going to get one fromgds or black cloud for $1350.

Thanks for any help

The mods you are thinking about are definitely on the right track. Don't be afraid to shop around to get what you want and get a reasonable price.

Before dropping the dough on the turbo, have it checked out by someone who is thoroughly knowledgable. While he (or she) is under the hood, find out what is up with the oil leak.

welcome to the forum

the turbo should last more than that mileage, what makes him think that its on its way out? did he drop any other clues about it?


also, check all the hose clamps to make sure they are tight

Cool Direction

WOW, Both of mine have way more mileage than your and there turbo's are fine except they don't push enough air for my state of tune. Get your gauges in and see whats going on.

You'll love the exhaust, I had the magnaflow on my PSD. And the turbo should be good for many more miles. So do have it checked by someone who knows their stuff. It'll be very reliable, pretty darn quick, and get pretty decent mileage all at the same time.

Is the sensor youre getting the blue one or are you just getting a black one for a spare. If its the blue one you might wanna change your mind about that. The blue cps changes your timing cant really remember right now if it advances the timing or retards it(too late at night baby wake me up). Anyway I think that it retards the timing. IMHO it would be better to stay with the black one.

the ccv is the short 1" L shaped piece of hose on the second half of the in take hose. it connect's to the driver's side valve cover. it's also more than likely the source of you oil "leak". oil get's it to the intake system from the ccv and collect's in the intrcooler. it then soften's the boot's (hose connection's) and procedes to drip. apearing as an oil leak. it also can be responsible for boost leaks and boots sliping off. black cloud has replacement's and thier fairly easy to change. >>>>>>>>ccv mod<<<<<<<<
