Talking Can't wait, 2 more weeks...

Hello to everyone, I got to say this forum has helped in my search for a truck ALOT! I have decided to buy a 06 F250 CC King Ranch. I've been wondering about a few things though. If I buy an extended warranty with the truck does that mean I can't put all the mods on it without voiding? Also, someone told me that in 2011 every deisel will have to put all that emisions crap the 08's are coming with on there trucks? Is that true? I plan to put 50-60K miles a year on it, all highway and not pulling anything, are there any serious problems these 06 6.0's are having? Thanks for any help you guys can offer.

I have the extended warranties, got 'em more for everything else not so much for the engine...the mod vs. dealer debate is never ending. Some dealers are cool, some aren't. Sorry, but there isn't a definitive answer for that.

As far as emissions, I havent heard that. That would be WAY too many trucks and too much money for the owners that have to retrofit all those trucks. So, I doubt that is the case. As far as I know, it only applies to new production trucks.

As for problems...if you dont plan on modding it, you shouldn't have to plan on any major problems, they got most bugs worked out. BUT, even on stockers, the EGR cooler have had a tendency to clogged up and have the "puking" issues. But, if you have the warranties, no worries.

The thing is, is I want to put some mods just to make it fun to drive since I'm in it all the time. I'm thinking exhuast, chip, air intake. I just love the sound of the turbo so what ever increases that is what I want to do!! Sorry for my lack of knowledge but I've always been a car guy (2 cobras, 2 camaros, and 1 vette). But now my buddy bought a cummins and modded it out and let me drive it, and I was hitched!! Don't like Dodge though.

As far as the best turbo whistle you would want to get an '03-early '04 6.0. That being said those are the "problem" years. What I have quickly learned on here is the stock intake is good for alot of HP so you don't need to change that unless you are going for big numbers. BTW I drive an early build '04 and love it, no problems for me.

Oh Yeah to the ORG!!

Man, what sucks is, it sounds like the 7.3L is the best motor, but I really want a newer truck. Why did Ford have to go and change a good thing? I also see alot of talk about weak head bolts. I guess if it's uder warranty then who cares, right?

The '03 & '04 6.0's did have some problems. They kinda caught a bad rap off of those two years when they first came out. Most of the problems with even those are cleared upby now by a bunch of work getting done by the techs. As far as the bolts yep they sure are the weak link but if you do pop the gaskets just spring for the head studs and the worry level goes way down. There are also mods that you can do to block off the EGR cooler.

That's way too much. I'd offer em very low 30s and see what they come back with. Big trucks are way low now. I wouldn't pay more than 33.5 or so for it, and it would have to be perfect.
