looking at a 6.0

Hey guys, i'm new to this and have spent many hours reading up on the 6.0. I'm looking at a 2003 f250 with the 6.0. It has very low miles and I'm wondering what i should be looking at besides the oasis report? here are the mods it has:

- 12 inch fabtech suspension
- 8 Procomp resivor shocks
- Edge juice with attitude monitor
- Airaide intake system
- MBRP 4" Turbo Back Stainless steel exhaust with 5" tip
-22" KMC XD Rockstar
-37" Super Swamper M-16

They said that they only really used it as a show/weekend truck and thats why it has low miles. Any advice?

Take her for a spin, get the motor up to operating temp (190ish). Take a cruise down the hy-way at 55-60mph for a couple of minutes. Use the EDGE monitor to read the ECT and EOT, if the delta is more than 15* apart then it's a good chance that the oil cooler is getting or is blocked.

Have you read this link.

I have read about delta, what exactly is that? Is it just a change of 15 degrees within that particular reading, or a 15 degree difference between EOT and ECT?

Delta

Delta is the difference in temperatures between the engine coolant temp (ect) and engine oil temp (eot). If it exceeds 15 degrees while cruising, expect an oil cooler replacement/egr cooler replacement in the near future. The delta is only considered accurate after the engine has reached 180 degrees, and been driven for a few minutes to stabilize the temperatures.
