6.0 Rebuild Questions

Truck is a 2004 F350 EC/LB/DRW with the 6.0 and 5R110 TorqShift. Last week while heading home the oil cooler let loose. This is 4 breakdowns in the last year and I am sick of it. Been having another guy doing the work but its proven unreliable time and time again. This time I am doing it myself. Now i know my away around engines being a CAT Tech, however the 6.0 is fairly new to me. I am currently pulling the motor(168,000miles) just to have a good look at EVERTHING.

This is what I am planning on doing to it and want some opinions from those with more experience than I.

ARP Studs
Head Gaskets
Check rod/main bearings
Oil Cooler Kit
EGR Cooler Delete(Already Installed)
Exhaust(4" MBRP Turbo back)
Mild Tuner
EOC, EOT, EGT, Fuel Pressure Guages

Anything else anyone can think of and point me in the right direction of parts please do. Im planning on getting what I can seal wise thru local dealer and everything else thru an online retailer.

For those of you whom have tackled this job, what extra parts did you find you needed after tear down, ect?

Thanks, Bryan

U pretty much have everything listed that I can think of u could go to mkm customs and get one of there solution kits that come with pretty much everything you have listed there and with all those mods u don't have to worry about running a mild tune u could run pretty much any tuner u wanted I would go with sct and custom tunes from innovative diesel but that's just me

If you end up deciding to use an egr cooler, the DORMAN is a better quality alternate to the oem EGR cooler. Just to let you guys know

If you don't delete the EGR cooler, nothing beats the replacement unit from Bullet Proof Diesel. Zero failure rate with that design of theirs.

Ive already got the EGR delete in place and plan on keeping it there. Fortunately in Alabama they dont do emissions testing. Thats is why the CAT is also gone with installing the exhaust
