I did the Zoodad on my truck, and I also got a FarmBoys Diesel 4" turbo back, and I went with a custom tuned SCT. Granny is right, get your gauges as one of the FIRST things. Let the tuner be the last. The Zoodad is a FREE mod, do it first, you won't notice anything, unless you have the guages already, then you will notice cooler EGT's. The Stock Air Cooler with the Zoodad mod is good for at least 500hp as well as the stock air filter, but I think others here use a different cleaner that is as good, but cheaper, you will have to ask around. This should give you what you are looking for, a reliable rig with good enonomy and a little performance. Be caustioned though that depending on the individual rig, these performance mods COULD harm your truck, so just like the stock market, do not risk more than you are willing to lose!
Good luck man ....
Have you bought this truck? If not get a 7.3 ..6.0's are just a time bomb.
I thought that disparaging between the different models of PSD's was clearly discussed, and discouraged!!! What did you hope to accompolish by this? If the guy already bought the truck in question then you just insulted his rig! Not really the way to show solidarity amongst Powerstrokers, especially the newer ones now is it?
All Powerstroke, and all motors have thier problems! This goes on a case by case basis, not based on the engine model.
