Best Explanation of Why......for PSD 6.0

POWERSTROKEHELP.COM - The Information Source for Ford Power Stroke Diesel Owners & Mechanics

in terms of why:
1) EGR Delete
2) ARP/Head Gaskets
3) Tuner
4) Exhaust

OK, so I now understand why this is something I'm going to need to plan/budget for and probably just knock em' out all at once.

So much for swearing to keep it "all stock"...

Just food for thought:

EGR delete -- Does your state inspect emissions? The cooler is a bigger if not the biggest problem.

Tuner - can blow head gaskets

Head gaskets -- not all blow, if you maintain the vehicle properly and stay away from tuners.

Exhaust -- just for power, remember you have a cat there that if you remove you may fail inspection.

This guy again oh lord.

1) EGR delete with a coolant filtration system.
2) Gauges you'll need the get the basic gauges to monitor everything.
3) Exhaust
4) Tuner you can ask the vendor to give you a mild non studded file now with that said it really depends how you drive it. HeavyAssault on here is still on factory head bolts for the last 4 yrs, really depends how you drive it when it comes down to it.
5) HG's can be down later down the road.

I am doing all of these things and more while i am in there... Not because this guy said so, but because from the research i have done it just makes good sense in the long run. It seems if you fix these engines before they fail it is allot cheaper.
Heck the heads alone are 3000.00, so not doing it is just asking to have your wallet ripped out again later.... Mine only has a oil cooler issue as of now but i am doing all of the things it needs while i am there: oil cooler, egr delete, drain tube, fuel spring kit, flush and coolant filter kit, head studs and VR/BO gaskets, snap connect fitting, and anything else that is known to internally fail while i am there.
I feel like looking at it as preventive maintenance, helps me (and wifey) to justify it better, and we wont be in another state on the side of the road with a load wishing i had another truck, and hopefully wont be scared to tow anymore like i am now.
So, pathfinder do as much as you can afford, cause i am thinking it is cheaper than the alternative... and with studs you never should have to worry about what tune you run and fuel economy will definitely increase, and the reduced stress on the mind alone may be worth the expense. Hope this helps.
