Need just a tiny bit of verification

Long story short. Had an 03 6.0 back in the day. Sold it, and have now been offered the truck back at a great price (I know the person very well, truck is fine as far as we can tell without hooking up gauges)

So i'm looking to obviously make it reliable, I didn't know a thing about them way back then. I'm learning all of this now.

No HG failures or Cooler issues in it's past.

I have ordered so far (pick up the truck on Tuesday)

Edge CTS
Sinister Coolant filter
Blue Spring Kit
Sinister EGR Delete
6.4 Banjo
New Ford Degas Cap

what other little doo-dads am I missing, other than the common flushes and filter changes?
Please bear in mind after buying a truck I was not planning on and another $1000 in parts and fluids and such I'm pretty much tapped for a while for this project. I can always seem to find an extra 100-200 bucks laying around though. So ill take thoughts on what I can do to around those prices too.

Thanks for all the Amazing info so far

And until he verifies where the deltas are at why would he waist money on a replacement part?

I'm actually gonna rebuild the cooler anyway. Just not right away. I won't be driving the truck more than once a week until the cooler is rebuilt. Just making sure I'm headed in the right direction.

Regardless if it needs it or not I'm the kind of guy that will do it just to he safe. It's a matter of $$ and talking myself into taking on that project in the driveway

The only reason I mentioned it is it can be done easily while the egr cooler is being deleted. Did Robbins AFB used to be Warner-Robbins? My dad was stationed there back in the 60's.

I just think he should get the CTS hooked up first before even doing the EGR delete, take 20-30 minutes to test deltas and then if need be he can have a new cooler in a few days for $250+. And if his deltas are 7-8* or less spend the money elsewhere, like on a TB 4" or 5" exhaust.

Warner Robins is the main town right outside the gates. I think the town came after the base, both named after a General.

I agree that he needs monitoring first and foremost. I have the scangauge II but will eventually go for the CTS. I'm pretty sure the base was called Warner-Robbins AFB back in the day, I have a certificate of his somewhere that says that. Thanks for your service by the way! Coach.

I think you're on the right track to go ahead and change the oil cooler anyway. My truck had a 5 degree delta and it ruptured anyway... Any 6.0 I buy from now on is getting the egr delete and a new oil cooler immediately!

I say if you plan on running it save for studs first. But if you don't plan on running it I say everything you have listed in your OP is good.

I'm addicted to diesel and I step on it constantly!
