New guy with some prolly old questions

Hey guys, name is Mike

I bought my 06' 6.0 off the lot with 300 miles on it, I change oil every 5K miles use motorcraft oil filters, carqest 15/40 my fuel filters are car quest. I have close to 39K on it now.

Frankly, I found this guy on youtube that scares the hell out of me that I am driving a timebomb waiting to go off.

I havent had any problems with my 6.0 and it has never been in service (knock, knock) I did a EGR delete in a freinds truck and plan on doing it on mine also even though I havent had any problems (knock, knock)

I have really been in my own bubble with this thing because its stone stock and pretty much problem free (knock, knock). I tow a drag car on a open trailer every once in a while, just not looking to get stranded on the road somewhere. What else you guys reccomend besides a EGR cooler delete?Thanks in advance.

Things to consider about owning a 6.0L

Now that you understand how important it is to have aftermarket gauges/monitor, get something to watch watch these temps and psi.
