Finally Got My Truck Back!!

Just thought I'd share my excitement lol. My truck has been at the dealership for the past 3 weeks. Brought it in because of the coolant puking. Had them install the EGR delete, studs, and new gaskets. I supplied the parts but the warranty took care of everything else. And keep in mind I only bought the truck 5 weeks ago so it feels like i got a new truck again lol. I installed the S&B intake when i got it home this morning and im very pleased with it so far.

Sorry, I don't want to rain on your parade but I don't see any mention of an oil cooler there. If that was not rebuilt/replaced you are destined for another blown egr cooler or worse. It's standard procedure to do the oil cooler if the egr cooler blows because that's what causes the egr cooler to blow in the first place. I hope you just forgot to include that in your post.

Yep that was replaced with a new one too. I just didnt mention it cuz ford covered it under warranty lol. And I really havent put any miles on with the S&B but i didnt notice too much of a difference in turbo noise. It is noticeable though.

OK. I was hoping your didn't get screwed on the deal. Sounds like your good to go. Congrats man. Now get that Ford Gold crap out of the and replace it with ELC and you'll have put all that behind you.

I'd find another dealership that actually wants your business.
