Order of Repair

Wanted to lay out some of my repair and TLC items in the order I see them and then get your opinion. Keep in mind that I live in Alaska and it is -17 right now , this is my primary means of travel and I do have access to a heated shop with a lift 4 of 7 days but obviously work gets in the way on two of those days. The truck has 100k on it runs alright as far as I can tell although does seem to use oil, has blow by on the pipes and a leaky Power Steer Pump "hopefully that is all that is leaking"


Gonna post them with numbers so just quote me and rearrange so that the next guy will only have to look up one post to see the original list.

1. Oil change 5W/40 synth
2 Fuel Filter
3. Tranny Fluid change with Synth
4. Power Steer Pump if leaking
5. Guages (boost, EGT, EOT, EOC, Tranny Temp)
6. Find out and repair why soot under the hood on Up pipes
7. DIY cold air intake
8. Exhaust modification
9. Recondition Turbo

The list looks...although, you should change the fuel filter more often than not. I do mine every 10,000 miles. So if you haven't changed it in a while, change it.

For the last four (6-9), I would suggest doing them all the same time. If you are figureing out the up pipes, you are going to have to remove the turbo, or at least do work back there. you might as well, do everything else that involves the air intake and exhaust right away - everything will be torn apart. I would also suggest to add the whicked wheel right away, and change you're turbo pedistal o-rings. Possibly do something with the EBPV as well, since they are known to leak as well.

As far as guages, I haven't heard much of people having EOT and EOC guages installed. This is not a big issue on these trucks like the 6.0. Some people do have a fuel pressure guage though. If you do any mods, guages should be first, which the list shows.

Updated list (My opinion):

1. Fuel FilterOil
2 change 5W/40 synth
3. Tranny Fluid change with Synth
4. Power Steer Pump if leaking
5. Guages (boost, EGT, EOT, EOC, Tranny Temp)
6a. Find out and repair why soot under the hood on Up pipes
6b. DIY cold air intake
6c. Exhaust modification
6d. Recondition Turbo
6e. Whicked Wheel
6f. EBPV
