Finally getting it fixed!!

I'm finally dropping my truck off to get fixed.
On the list is:
RCD EGR Delete
New Oil cooler
STC Fitting
Dummy Plugs
FPR Blue Spring
6.4 Banjo Bolts
Ford Head gaskets
ARP Headstuds
And steam cleaning intake and clean turbo

I haven't been able to drive my truck in months. It crapped out one week exactly after I dropped $$$ on the new wheels and tires. Isn't that always the way!

That's exactly why the first mod anyone should do with these trucks is a good engine monitoring solution. As you found out, it is not an option.

sounds like you're getting the works. should run great when it's done

new standpipes should come with the headgasket kit, make sure they put them in there too, they'll be updated with the white teflon seals under the top D-ring and they'll have revised check valves

I'm getting exactly the same stuff done to mine also, except I'm getting some new heads put on too. Can't wait to see how it runs!
