2009 E350 4x4 -- new owner, few questions
I just purchased a 2009 Ford E350 van equipped with the Powerstroke motor; it has been converted to 4x4 by Quadvan. The van is in fantastic shape, just 14,000 miles on it. We will convert the van to a camper and plan to take a very long trip (1+ year ) from Alaska to Argentina. This is my first diesel "truck", so please excuse my general truck ignorance.
I'd like to modify the motor for a bit more power, but mostly for better mpg, and cooler running and longevity. I've called Banks and they state they do not have products for PS in vans.
What resources are available for tuning the PS in vans?
I was thinking a chip, exhaust, intake would be a good start. Intercooler, perhaps?
I've been reading up on the Powerstroke and I am having problems finding the specs on the PS in the van. I've read on-line that the PS in vans are de-tuned. Is that correct?
As the van is a 2009, does it have the 6.0 or the 6.4? I know is 2009 Ford switched to the 6.4, but I think that was only for trucks?
I appreciate your input.
