Talking Finally Fixed!! (knock on wood)

Well I think I finally got all the kinks worked out of my F350 6.0!
This is what I've done in the last two months:
replace two injectors
replace FICM
Sinister EGR Delete
Rebuild oil cooler
install Dieselsite Coolant filter
flushed out junk Gold coolant and replaced with ELC
*Didn't change the studs or gaskets since they were still good and I was going broke.

I just got it back yesterday from getting the last few items taken care of. I've had to drive my Greenbean (S10) all week. BIG difference between the greenbean and the 350! Not to mention, everytime I started the greenbean I waited for the glowplugs to warm lol.
Unfortunately we have 18 inches of snow so I can't really test it out too much, unless I want to meet a ditch. I did notice a 75 degree drop in EGT though. I also have a new Flashpak sitting on my coffee table that I can't play with either. Not until some of this snow melts! Colder temps to come and.....it's snowing again.

Did get a great surprise from the dealer I purchased it from in Sept, 10. He heard about all the trouble I've had with it since I bought it and the costs. He sent me a check for $1,900 this week.

I'm wavin' the Ford Flag again!!
