Sweet Jesus !!!!!

I have been on your site for 30 minutes and I'm driving a piece of junk!!!!!! Ok here is where I stand.

Stock motor and 62000 miles
Been keeping up with oil changes

Just put on a AFE prostage 2 air filter
3.5" down with a 5" back MBRP Exhaust

Now thinking about trying to save what is left of my truck. What should I focus on next?
So what is next a coolant filter and change out the orginal coolant?

Also thinking about some kind of better primary fuel filter system or just easyer to change.

I also see you guys going on about readings are you getting them from chip upgrade data or adding extra instruments?

Thank for the inout that i'm about to get!!!

No! There are a lot of 6.0s out there and our trucks are expensive. When somthing goes wrong we freakout. All motors have their issues. I just wish we didnt have head bolts or EGR Valves! lol

62k and it's a piece of junk?

I'd say coolant filter and flush it out too. The fuel filtration on these is usually pretty good so I wouldn't worry about that.
A lot of guys add an Edge Insight I think it is. From what I know, it plugs into the OBD port and just uses factory sensors.

What is a oasis report? I didn't really panic or think it was junk but was wondering if in the morning it was going to be sitting in the drive leaking most of it fluids. On coolant filter and coolant which one? who's is best too use? Same on egr/ head bolts. Seen some in the last diesel mags. Bulletproof and others which are best for the buck?

Dieselsite is usually the consensus for the filter kit. I've built my own and it only came out maybe 25 bucks cheaper.
Coolant, use some ELC red coolant. I just used a generic brand, but most use Cat ELC.

You wasted your money on both the two stage air filter and the 5" exhaust

The stock air filter system on the 6.0L is the best on the market. Unless your making over 500HP you don't need anything bigger than a 4" Exhaust.
