ok finally got a build date 04/1999 powerstroke shortbox extra cab in white.
here is my list of future mods: note I have owned this truck for 3 weeks now.
1. put on riftraft intake otherwise stock....Future mods listed below:
2. 6.0 tranny cooler(trying to source a cheaper one than 290 at dealership)
3. exhaust 5 inch downpipe back or turbo back? any real difference?
4. derale transmission pan(adds 8 qts) and maybe a valvebody(suggestions?)
5. basic stuff scheduled this weekend: oil change rotela t with motorcraft oil filter. change fuel filter(motorcraft)
I have a motorcraft tranny filter, but i want to wait till next month when i have the pan and cooler.
What transmission fluid? where can i get it at the best price?
So any other suggestions? I did find some 2004 headlights, bought a 2005 grill(gotta cut it or update my front bumper? )Still gotta put that on also.
ANY Sugeestions etc will be greatly appreciated, this is my first diesel so I do want to learn from the experienced. thx.
