Questoins on my truck
Hello everyone. I have done a TON of researching on the forum about longevity matienece for the 6.0. It seems from what I have read that the 03 and the 04 models have a little more problems and pit falls compared to the newer 6.0's.
From what I've HEARD, my model (the 06 year) has an "updated oil cooler" and does not need to be replaced or rebuilt?
Second I plan on getting an EGR delete my buddies say I need to get a chip or programmer to do this so that my engine light will not come on...
My buddies also say my year If I delete the EGR early, flush the system and run a better coolant, they have seen trucks like that go over 200k miles with tunes before serious service work needs to be done...
As for owning my third diesel including this one, I take VERY good care of my trucks including fuel oil and coolant and transmission services all the time...
Can anyone chime in on whats best for my truck?
