First Time Ford & Diesel Owner
Well I finally jumped ship to a Ford from them lil bowties and it started off a little rocky. I bought a 2008 F250 6.4 with 96,000 miles. At 98,000 miles I noticed a large amount of power loss. I take the truck to the Ford garage and find out I have 0 compression in #1 and #8 cylinders. So after 8 weeks of them having my truck I now have a new short block, injectors, pistons, and other various engine parts. Jump ahead now to 108,000 miles I find out that my radiator is cracked where the plastic and metal meet. $1,800 later I have a new intercooler and radiator. Now that most of the truck is brand new and our relationship is mended I am glad I got the truck and wouldn't trade it for anything.
My question now is I want to get a programmer and DPF delete. After reading many posts and comments I have decided to go with the Spartan. I have been looking at the kits and am not sure what is the best buy for me. Should I go with the cat back exhaust and programmer or just the dpf exhaust and programmer. Now that I have a diesel I want to blow some black smoke. I pull a 31ft camper on occasion, and a 21ft bass boat.
Any comments or suggestions would be helpful. I'm new to the diesel world.
