Cab is coming off!

So my tech here at the dealership will have the cab off whilst replacing my EGR cooler, oil cooler, and clean the turbo up. ...while the cab is off, what else should I do while I have big time access to everything? Everything is still there and stock BTW. I already have in mind to drill and tap for an EGT sensor for the Insight.

browns diesel has them for $398. I got mine with in 4 days. not sure how long for you but see if they can get them to you in time.

Update the stc, along with the standpipes and dummy plugs.

What's involved in replacing those for the technician..just wondering how much more tear down time and how much labor is involved.

A boat load more work call and get an estimate

Ps most people put the probe in the exhaust under the truck so the cab off really doesn't mean anything and if you do drill and tap bring a 1/8 npt plug if you don't have the probe

I agree, call them. Are you under warranty?

for the stc, hpop will need to be removed.

arp's, the heads and everything packed in them, injecotrs, valvetrain.

Intake manifold and tubo for both. But this will already be off for replacing both coolers.

It would be nice to do but it's a grand in parts plus the labor plus you really want to take the heads somplace and have them checked

it all adds up

I had mine done days before the warranty was up
