well, after much discussion with the wife, we have decided to do headstuds and egr delete on our own account. i will do the job in my driveway with the help of some friends and beer!!
i want to do the studs, egr delete, and possibly a 3.5" downpipe to my stock exhaust size. i have no cat and no muffler as it is now.
what i need to know is what else should i do while i am at this point that is not too crazy in price as we will be putting enough in it as it is. i plan on making the egr delete myself so a little cheaper there. also for those that have done the studs with the cab on, please chime in as to any things to look for during the job.
i did a search on here already for headstud jobs but as you may know, it turns up ALOT of stuff and i cant find what i am looking for in the way of a list of stuff i need to do this undertaking. i know that i need the studs, and a top end gasket kit from ford and i plan on going with the stock gaskets. i guess i will need a programmer now as the egr would be gone.
i am very mechanically inclined as that is what i do for a living but never worked on a diesel other than normal maintenance so any help in this direction is GREATLY appreciated.
sorry for the long post and i hope to start this project in the beginning of may before camper pulling season. and i will take pics of it as we go along with the egr delete.
