2009 E350 - anyone make it bullet proof / changes to make it reliable?

Friend purchased a 2009 E350 w/ 110K miles. He is looking at what changes are needed to make it reliable.

Purchased for a good deal, needed some mechanics attention. Initial diagnosis I believe is the FICM.

Should he EGR valve delete / EGR cooler delete? With this show up on the WI emission testing?

Fuel filter - any thoughts on an aftermarket fuel filter to protect the injectors?

Does anyone know what other problems / weak points the engine has for the 2009 E350 6.0liter diesel? Do the HPOP / HPOP coolers have any issues to be concerned about?

03-07 is the 6.0, 08-10 is the 6.4 and 11-now is the 6.7, do you have the incorrect year or engine? Giving you a hard time.

As for the 6.0 it's best to monitor your coolant and oil temp deltas, the FICM voltage, cranking and running. Then delete your EGR cooler. And replace oil cooler (if more than 15 degree delta)

vans kept the 6.0 until they discontinued them. Ford paid an emissions penalty on each one manufactured. they finally dropped the diesel in the vans all together
