Get Me Started
Just purchased a 2005 F350 SRW SB with 6.0 PS. Haven't even picked it up yet and already thinking about the upgrades. Been reading a bunch on the forum here, which is quite a feat with dial up. So far I've been thinking of the following upgrades somewhat in order. Let me know what you think. Being new to this stuff for the most part there'll be a lot questions to come.
Gauges...EGR, Trans, Boost. Stewart Warner seems the way to go?
Exhaust..Turbo Back 4"....Stainless or aluminized?...Any difference in brands?
Oil filter bypass...Amsoil or FS2500?
Changeover to synthetic oil....Amsoil or Royal Purple?
SCT tuner....Standard or custom tuned?
Water/meth injection...Labonte looks like the way to go?
What I want...in order...Reliability, mileage, power. Truck will be used to pull horse trailers, flatbeds for hay, etc. I like to get where I'm going but old enough to be outta the hot rod phase.
Also need to get a B&W turnover ball, bed coating (Rhino?), maybe air bags and/or leveling kit.
Since this site has been so helpful I'd like to stick with the sponsors here.
Thanks to all who take the time to share their knowledge and experience. I sure learned a lot in a short period of time.
