New 6.0 Powerstroke Owner! Finally.
Yesterday, I finally did it. I traded in my F150 for my first PSD.
Here's what I got:
2004 (not sure if it early or late yet)
F250 4x4 Crewcab shortbed
230,000 miles. All stock. No mods and totally clean body.
I don't want a drag truck by any means, but I do want great performing truck. From reading this forum, I have gotten an idea of some things that will improve performance and durability.
I'm definitely new to diesels, but I'm trying to catch on. These are some things I THINK would be good for my truck and what I use it for (daily driver, hauling, and occasionally light towing). I'm also going to list them in order of importance. If anyone has a different opinion on something or thinks I'm waaaaay off base, let me know. I'm a sponge. And if anyone has any general advice, feel free to share.
-Monitor/Gauges (Edge Insight CTS seems highly recommended)
-Exhaust (I haven't done any research on this yet. Maybe 4 inch?)
-SCT Tuner with custom tunes
That's as far as I've gotten. And if anyone in the .ORG knows a good diesel shop/mechanic in or around Detroit, let me know. I'd like to get it looked over and see what I'm working with. Thanks. I'm lovin' this friggin' truck.
