Getting ready to change my clogged oil cooler and do an egr delete while im in there. im working on my parts list so i can make sure i have everything ordered and here by 9/9 so i can get to work and not have to worry about not having a part. (truck is 2004 6.0L and pretty sure its an early 04)
heres what ive got so far (bold are the ones i need advice on)
Oil cooler/gaskets - ordered and in the mail
Egr delete - PMM won from their giveaway
homemade up pipe with egr passage delete
sinister coolant filter.- DI is having a sale 120 shipped
turbo oil drain - where to order??
Restore - Where?
Restore+ - where?
25 gallons of Distilled water - will get local
4 gallons of CAT ELC - local store??
New oil - rotella probably or amsoil
oil filter - dealer or better option?
fuel filters - dealer or better option?
Fumoto drain valves for the block - need to order
fumoto drain valve for oil pan - need to order
anything else im missing? planning to do it myself since i cant justify the 1200-1500 bill it would cost me at a shop.
i have a basic knowledge and worked on alot of vehicles suspension and some motor work here and there but this is the first major upgrade to the truck and its seems like a big one.
Any special tools other than basic sockets and wrenches. i have all sizes up to 22mm and then some misc other ones but im not against going to get a tool that will help make the job easier such as wheel steps etc.
