Few Q's

Driving around yesterday, me and the warden(wife) stopped at a dealer and were looking around. She spots a 2010 KR 250 ccsb. Stock as a rock with 26k on it. Took it on a drive and she liked it, I loved it. If we go back and still she likes it, I am taking my cts to check a few things(eot/ect, tranny, etc...) Is there much anything different than a 6.0 to check? Are the egr coolers as weak, radiator I know is one thing, bedplate leaks?

We are looking because the balancer on her TL fell off and trashed the engine. just out of warranty of course. Plus, she loves my 6.0 but likes the KR interior and 2010 bodystyle better.

If we get it, we'll straighten out what needs done then throw the fun stuff at it.

check for coolant leaks around the radiator, degas bottle, and large hoses. crawl under it and drain the fuel water seperator and see what that looks like (on a 2010 this is directly under the driver door),

Also, check out the exhaust system, specifically the DPF. If it looks like it's been removed and it doesn't show on the oasis report, chances are the previous owner had it tuned. No telling how he/she treated it before selling it. Which is the only negative with these new tuners.

if it all checks out....BUY IT......fyi......if you tune it...you will never want to drive the 6.0 so just be prepared for that. never mind,, just looked at your sig line....you built the crap out of that 6.0

ok cool thanks guys. When we drove it, I did check underneath and didn't see any fluids on the ground or on the frame. And felt no clunking in the driveline at all. Everything worked fine as far as I could tell.

Injekter, in about 30 days a s366/s474 combo is going under the hood of the 6.0. That's when the guy doing my tuning will be available for a couple days to get it running good.
