Check the threads in my Sig, both the Bullet-Proofing and Monitoring in particular.

ARPs should be studs, pretty easy to see them under the hood and tell the difference (if it looks like a standard bolt - he's lying and you should be walking).

I'd questions the replacement of the EGR cooler. If it was another OEM unit, it needs to be solved via an upgrade, block, or delete.

I'd also ask why the injectors were replaced. Leading causes are water in fuel (preventable), low FICM voltage (which means it should have been replaced), or low fuel pressure (again preventable). If the injectors were done without solving the why question, you stand a good chance of doing them again.

Sinister diesel coolant filter so no more clogged oil cooler. Turbo off an 03 so it whistles pretty loud. 4" turbo back exhaust. " what should i ask and everything like that?

There is a lot of threads here to read before you should move further on a truck. get a monitor and test drive it. Check the temp deltas

First thing, the Sinister Coolant Filter (or any filter for that matter) cannot prevent a clogged oil cooler. However it does help with its longevity.

I can't stand the whistle of the '03 turbo, some do some don't, if you haven't heard one you may want to check the videos on youtube.

As mentioned, if you are serious about the 6.0L, you should have a monitor with you and check the truck with it when you test drive.
