Almost ready for the 6.0 swap

Question guys,

I have decieded to swap the motor in my 6.0 myself. After seeing a few write ups on it, a few youtube videos, and talking to my fellow ORG members I feel that I should be able to do it. I'm not going to rush, going to take my time even if it takes me a whole week. The motor I am getting will come with ARP headstuds, and ford OEM gaskets. While I am in the swapping mood, I thought this will be a great time to add a BPD FICM (if they are out now) and put on a new oil cooler since I am going to put Rotella ELC coolant in the new motor. I also want to replace all of the turbo boots. Which pipe is it that gets clogged with soot? Would it be better to replace that pipe or just clean it? Just trying to get some opinions here before I start taring in to her.

Also if there are any Ford techs on here that can answer a question about a 99 F250 gasser for me I would be thankful for that as well.


Thanks guys.
