Thanks PGreenSVT!

The " things to consider about owning a 6.0" checklist is almost complete. I just switched the coolant to CAT ELC1. Took all day. I flushed 6 times with water, once with restore, again 2x with water, once with CAT ELC1 then a final fill with CAT ELC1. I now have a relatively new oil and EGR cooler(<10000miles), new head gaskets, bolts not studs, ELC, EGR delete is in the mail, Edge Insight CTS is coming 3/7. Truck should be pretty reliable. Thanks for all the knowledge.

Adding my "thanks" as well. Definitely a great asset to the site. It's nice to have a knowledgable, straight-up, no-nonsense source.

You don't know what you have till you check the other sites. Which seem to be far behind on 6.0 knowledge. So a big thanks to the coolant crusaider.

Mitch has saved my *** a few times, and has alway been a helping hand. His head is full of useful information. I owe him a beer or 30
