Buying a 05 F250, need guidance.

Hello, I am new to the forum, and I'm new to Diesel engines. I have been doing a ton of reading in the forums but still would like more info. First of all I'm wanting the signature 03 turbo whistle. I understand I need the 03 turbo "3C3Z-6K682-CBRM", ped. "3C3Z-6N639-BA", and hardware kit "3C3Z-9T514-AD". I can find the hardware kit, but I cannot find the turbo and the ped. to save my soul, I've even tried searching on the Ford.com parts site. Can some1 lead me to the right direction into getting these parts?

I've also read to get a 3.5 Down pipe, cat delete and go with the no muffler turbo back exhaust and she'll sing? Is this hard to do myself? I am mech. inclined but if it's hard to do I will take it to a shop. I really want the smoke stacks but I have no clue how much these cost & labor?

If anyone can help, I would gladly appreciate it, and any other suggestions and guidance would help a lot as I'm a complete n00b in diesel.

Your best bet if you want an 03 turbo is buy one second hand. There are 2 that I know of in the "performance and drivetrain" sale threads right now. 03 turbo and a straight pipe exhaust sings like no other...

You can do a muff/cat delete relatively cheap. I had a local muffler shop do mine for about 60$ total. Or you can buy the delete pipe and put in yourself for about 130$ I think?

With just the straight pipe it will whistle pretty good. To get an 03 turbo you'll have to wait until a used one shows up for sale and snag it.

Thanks guys, that was very helpful info. I'm def checking into the 03 that's for sale also. How would it sound with smoke stacks and how much trouble would I have to go thru to get some put on ?

I was also reading about it was recommended to do an EGR delete?

I had twin 6" stacks on mine and it was really easy. The hardest part is cutting that 4" hole in your bed...get a piece of flex pipe from a truck exhaust shop and everything else fit right up.

EGR deletes are HIGHLY recommended. It gets rid of the EGR cooler which can rupture and really screw things up. There are kits from the various vendors on this site. Where are you located and there might be a local member that could help you...

I am located in Charlottesville, VA. I've read that they can be a pain to install also. How do you like your stacks vs regular ? Do i have to monitor EGT, ECT, EOT, and other things also ?

6.0 EGR coolers are junk. The round ones on the early 03's weren't too prone to cracking, but the squared ones on later models are terrible.
