Hello to all
. Im in need of some subject matter expert advice. So I guess I have to settle for y'all.
just kidding, no really just kidding. I purchased a 04 psd last year and have been gone over seas for the past year. While I was gone my wife had a few issues with the truck, so needless to say I had a lot of work done on the truck. I also realized that 95% of the guys on this org are more knowledgeable then the ford's service. I had a few things replaced such as both batterys, alternator, Ficm, and egr valve. While I was home on leave I installed gauges, straight piped the exhaust, installed Afe intake manifold, and unfortunately installed a s&b cold air intake. Since I have been home I installed a coolant filter and b/c I had green coolant and my delta was 35* I did a coolant flush hoping to get the eot down
. Well needless to say after flush I still had 25 delta. So since I have the turbo off and the top of the engine exposed I figured I would modd it properly. I plan on putting arp studs in with stock hg, cleaning turbo with batomwheel upgrade, egr delete, elc coolant, fuel spring upgrade, oe oil cooler replacement, and at least a case of Samuel Adams
. Now saying all that,is there anything I missed that I might want to consider? I ordered all the required tools and parts according to the stickys and threads. Thanks.
