How long would it take to do the egr delete? I know headstuds are also preferred too. Is there like a buyers guide to these trucks? I have the Diesel Power? magazine where they did an article on 6.0s and common problems.

Thats about as good as it gets. EGR delete is simple once you get the top half of the engine torn out!

in the looks department all of them are dead on. i'd probably choose the '05 for its more plush coil spring front end. check out Bill Hewitts website, full of info for the Powerstroke buyer...
