My story

Well yall I got married to the best woman that has came into my life. Shortly after the wedding Tuesday Oct. 23rd my 2002 F-250 7.3L powerstroke caught on fire. Well after dealing with the insurance company. I got a pay out of 13,756.

Well I got a new to me 2004 F-250 6.0L powerstroke. It has 174,000 miles on it. It is a clean truck with no major repairs done.

I am not going to do any mods to the engine. Until I need to do engine repairs. But still no tunes because I am not looking at doing headstuds.

Anyways the truck runs great and I hope it stays that way.

Congrats on marrying your lady love and congrats on the new(er) truck!!!

Sorry it took the ol' one burning down to get it, but I hope it serves you as well as the 7.3L did.

You do NOT need to tune/modify your truck.
But if you want a safe, reliable, and trustworthy 6.0 you need to get some sort of monitoring solution for it. Might Prevent you from having to do HG work alltogether

Deltas, FICM voltage, Fuel pressure.

HG on the earlh 04 are more prone to failure than the 05-07. I do reccomend a tune becouse you just get better performance. Congrats on the marrage. Sorry to hear about your truck burrning up. That has to suck.

Congrats on the truck and wife. Do yourself a favor, if you want to stay married.........Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.

And install a coolant filter now. :thumbup:
