My New Rig

2006 F350 Long bed Ex cab XLT Powerstroke auto. 29,000 miles. Just checked Oasis never in for service.

Mods on the truck:

MBRP Exhaust (the the dealer stuck a cat in, I will make it correct later )
20" Harley Wheels.

Any suggestions for maintenance, fuel or anything? This is my first diesel, thanks!

Change oil every 5K, fuel filters every 10K and I personally throw in Diesel Kleen (gray bottle) every tank for extra lubrication. Oil is your preference, I personally like Rotella and Valvoline.

Future mods I'd recommend would be studs and EGR delete or block...

Welcome aboard!

As for the EGR delete I recommend first coast diesel performance's kit.

Zero need for a turbo timer. Just wait the 30 seconds if that it takes for the EGT's to go below 400 and shut er down
