Hi everyone. I recently purchased my first diesel truck. It is a 2006 F250 King Ranch 4x4 crew cab, currently 155,000 miles. So far I love the truck.
I just got a copy of the oasis report.

It shows new EGR VALVE, EGR Cooler and Oil Cooler at 49,500 miles. Since then nothing else for 100,000 miles. That I know of from the report.

My question is since the parts where replaced already and truck runs great should I do the following anyway:

Head studs
EGR delete
Oil cooler

I know everyone talks about doing this things but I wasnt sure since they were replaced a the dealership.

I have replaced the exhaust with magnaflow 4in turbo back and no cat.

I would only do those if you start seeing something going wrong. Like 15* deltas or other signs of egr problems. I would put a Edge CTS to monitor my trucks essentials or good old fashion mechanical ones. But make sure you monitor EOT ECT fuel pressure and EGT. I would switch out the ford gold if it is in there with CAT-1 rated coolant. Then I would look at throwing on a coolant filter by someone like Sinister on.

Those will help eliminate those issue, and keep the truck running healthy. Use some good synthetic oil in that motor, the 6.0 purrs better with it. Make sure you use Motocraft filters or Racore only (Racore is OEM motorcraft) Make sure you change the oil every 5K and about every 15 on the fuel filters. Use some additive in the oil every once in a while like Rev-x to keep the injectors lubed and happy. Maybe some Opti-lube in the tank to do the same and keep her clean. As well do the Blue spring mod to make sure her fuel pressure is spot on so you do not eat injectors, and while you are doing that change to the 6.4 banjo bolts.

Stuff I mentioned is pretty cheap and all easy DIY stuff. The truck will like it and will end up doing you allot of good.
