just received full bulletproof kit

Hello Everyone-- Im new to this site and I sure am glad I found it!!
You guys sure know your s%#t !!!
I just received my Full Bulletproff Kit for my 05 XLT350 Dually. My Truck is a second for me - first truck is an 04-
this truck is my livelihood - Service Truck

I purchased the following from Bulletproof Diesel

1- full bulletproof system 2005-2007 F-Series, condenser mount with square EGR Cooler
2- 2005-2006 6.0 Professional Package
a- improved turbo drain tube
b- spin on oil filter
c- oil pressure switch
d- HPOP pressure fitting upgrade kit
e- fuel filter assembly o-ring seal kit
f- Ford VGT turbo control solenoid pigtail harness
g- Ford fuel filters
h- ERG Valve gasket set
i- fan clutch wire harness saver
j- water pump assembly with hoses

I was getting ready to dive into this today after reading numerouse threads from you guys over the last 2 days- downloading all the necessary instructions- 2 days of homework ----

it slapped my in the face this morning though--

if im going to be this deep into this engine-- i really think it would be foolish to not take the heads off and get them checked out- and install ARP Studs!!

HOW MUCH EXTRA WORK IS THIS
I LIVE IN BELLFLOWER CALIFORNIA - WHO DO I TAKE THE HEADS TOO??
IS THERE ANY TECHNICAL ISSUES OR SPECIAL TOOLS NEEDED TO BE SUCCESSFULL AT THIS -

IVE BUILT NUMEROUSE BIG AND SMALL BLOCK CHEVYS- BUT NEVER BEEN INSIDE A DIESEL BEFORE--

ADVISE??????



I ATTACHED PICTURES OF MY BEAST AND ONE OF THE COOLANT

COOLANT IS A MUDDY ORANGE-- AFTER LETTING IT SIT OVERNIGHT BLACK SEDIMENT SITS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE SAMPLE JAR --
NO OIL IN FLUID-- BUT DEFINATELY UNHEALTHY!!!

Sweet good looking stuff the only thing is did you do a coolant flush first before you rip into it just to get the inside clean if it looks that bad and is does.

Good to hear that and yes there are a lot of great guys here willing to help some of the guys have pics of install that may help and a list of tools needed. I got mine with low miles and just try to do the things that are a known problem before they happen.

thank you

i need to make a decision on whether to pull heads or not.
this is preventative maint. -- truck has 103K miles on it


a list of tools needed would really cut time!!
and
a complete proceedure for the task at hand with all the little things the factory manual leaves out would be awsome


ANYONE ?????

Doing head gaskets with the cab on can be done but it is a huge pain in the keister. it is much easier to raise the cab or pull the engine to do all the work you have planned. You'll need a 10mm allen for the standpipe and 30 an 45 torx if you decide to pull the heads. A good assortment of sockets, wrenches, extensions, swivels, etc. The more tools you have the better, but that's how I feel about every job.

If you haven't had any issues with a popped EGR cooler, and show no sign of head gasket failure, I wouldn't touch them

I have a very limited collection of tools but still got it done. Sockets with extensions, wrenches, basic screw drivers (aka pry bars), torque wrenches, deep creep, lots of rags, magnet on a stick was very important, hammer and a short length of 2x2 came in handy and the two most important...

Patience and ADVIL!!!

There might be some other basic stuff but I had no special tools.

Good Luck!
Oh, I'm with NYC, if the heads are good don't touch 'em. Once the oil and egr coolers are done they should be fine for a long time.

Forgot vice grips they came in handy too.
