I know crazy right! I was actually looking to sell my 08 to get rid of a huge truck note. Me and the wife were trying to get rid of some bills. So I ran across this deal and couldnt resist. I didnt know anything about diesels before my 6.4 and certainly didnt know anything about the 6.0 besides its bad rap. The truck was already bullet proofed so that took care of any doubt I had about the 6.0. Its been 3 months now I absolutely love the truck. It took a while to grow on me and I dont think I said a word for about three days after I watched my 6.4 pull out my driveway for the last time. My wife would just look at me and say "are you ok" haha. I literally get twice as many people stop me and say man thats a nice truck than I did with my 08
. Maybe cuz its 2" higher?
I'am learning more and more about this truck and engine every day. Thanks to the org of course. I will say this, i do miss the serious power the 6.4 had with just a tune and dpf delete. But hey the note is $250 less and the interest rate is almost half of what it was from ford credit. And I still have an awesome powerstroke. It dont get much better than that
Congratulations on the new ride there are a few things is see you need
1. Coolant fliter to remove the casting sand and junk
2. Fuel pressure gauge under 45lbs at WOT kills injectors.
3. Gauges something like the Edge insight to check temps the most important one is the difference in EOT-ECT max 15* i think at 10* your cooler are starting to get plugged.
4. Oil by-pass if you are going to keep it for the long haul cleans the oil to 2 microns.
These motors love Syn oil do a coolant flush and install ELC coolant good for 300k use only Ford or Racor filter.
