Just wanted to share this install for a 2003 6.0 Build 01/03. Still reporting feed back every so often to BPD and here.
Received it last Friday via UPS and found it waiting for me when I got home from work. Nice box size and when opened, it was well packaged with the expanding foam.
I finally get a chance to install it today(Tuesday) and the overall install was rather smooth. Also found out some early 6.0 engine differences that did not exist on the others that has done this...far as I know.
I removed the coolant tank for easy access btw. Apparently mine has rubber bushing mounted on the stock FICM. Had to figure out how to remove them since the newer trucks apparently do not have this setup. But found out that they are two piece bushings. So pushing out the metal sleeve separated them. Moved them over and went to install on the truck. The harness really was not an issue. They came off with some work and went on rather easy. Heard the snap on all three plugs so they were in. Reinstalled the coolant tank and air filter and intake tube and refilled the coolant. I also changed my Tstat so I had to add more coolant than usual.
Started it up and right off it was reading 48.5v and held it. Did some revs to see if it changed and no. Then some quick starts to see if it would lag. It started well each time of the 3 quick cranks I threw at it. Also the startup buzz test was very fast and solid clicks. The old one was slow and sped up as it clicked. O.o.
I want to say it felt like it responded a tad bit faster once the turbo lit up but I'll see how it handles from the miles I put on the truck.
So far I've seen it hover at 48-48.5 mostly and some 47.5v dips. There is about 30miles on it now.
Pics and vids in a bit since they are still uploading.
