Thumbs up NEED A REPUTABLE 6.0 MECHANIC IN FORT LAUDERDALE OR MIAMI OR??

I OWN A 2006 F350 DUALLY 4X4 CREW CAB WITH THE 6.0 POWERSTROKE.

I PURCHASED MY TRUCK NEW IN O6 AND IT JUST NOW TURNED 41K MILES AND THE WARRANTY IS ABOUT TO EXPIRE.

I PURCHASED THIS TRUCK WITH THE INTENTION OF KEEPING IT LONG TERM. THAT BEING SAID, I HAVE ALWAYS CHANGED THE OIL EVERY 5K, FUEL FILTERS EVERY 10K AND JUST DID A TRANSMISSION FLUSH AND FILTER AT 41K. TRUCK HAS NEVER GIVEN ME A LICK OF TROUBLE.

I AM NOW LOOKING TO BULLET PROFF THE WEAK POINTS IN THE ENGINE.

I AM LOOKING FOR INPUT ON THE FOLLOWING:

1.) EGR DELETE (WHATS THE BEST ONE TO USE)

2.) REMOTE OIL COOLER, DELETING ORIGINAL (ANY OPINIONS)

3.) TURBO BACK STAINLESS EXHAUST WITH CAT DELETE (ANY OPINIONS)


THAT IS IT FOR RIGHT NOW.


I NEED A REPUTABLE MECHANIC THAT IS VERY FAMILIAR WITH THE 6.0 TO DO THE INSTALL AND MAYBE PROVIDE ME SOME GOOD INSIGHT ON WHAT PRODUCTS TO PURCHASE.


THANKS!!

go to your dealership and ask the diesel techs in person, if they do side work. nothing like a factory trained person working on your diesel.

Google "mbrp" You can get it as single exhaust, dual exhaust, in aluminized steel, mid-grade stainless steel or high grade stainless. All with or without cat and muffler.

You should be able to see the pros and cons on your own. If not, it is time to do some homework.
