New to the 6.0
So I posted in the introductions forums a couple of days ago and I have been lurking around looking for the answers to my questions. After sifting through a lot of forums I figured I'd just post here since this is most likely the place that the answers are going to be.
To make a long story short, Purchased a 2004 CCLB 6.0 Powerstroke with about 142K on the clock. Truck as far as I can tell is bone stock, right down to the grandpa cap on the bed.
So I've been digging around and have found that the most common answers to first mods to be done are, EGR Replacment / Delete and there are various schools of thoughts on both. I'm leaning towards delete since it seems like a better option.
After that it seems that exhaust, a monitor of some kind, head studs, and a whole pile of other things.
So I've been trying to wrap my head around all of this and I find that after reading a lot of threads that my head hurts and I have to walk away from the computer. Everything from coolant mucking up the works to deltas from tuners.
Right now I'm just looking for a little guidance from someone a little more knowledgeable than myself. Perhaps a good sticky to read or perhaps a couple of very to the point threads.
I'm looking to educate myself on these motors, not get a lot of opinions on what I "should" do. I can make an informed decision myself thank you very much.
Just looking to get the facts on these motor, not looking to spend a few thousand dollars....right now anyways.
Anyways thanks for reading and helping.
