Long story short....the truck I just spent all my money on has a plugged oil cooler and the cab has to come off to fix it. The dealer is not going to help at all it looks like after myself and the GM had a gentlemans handshake if anything was wrong he would take care of it. He is the owners son, this is Hollywood KIA dealership in Hollywood FL. This is the same thing that happened with my 05 KR 2wd 1k miles after I bought it(1 month), first road trip. Oil cooler and EGR blew apart on the interstate and I had to tow it back to the dealer and they charged me for the repairs and tow bill, I had a 12k/1 yr warranty.
Enough of that. I need help with what to do to this truck while the cab is off. If I can get a good deal on parts I'd like to do some other stuff. I can't do this work myself so I'm paying a tech labor, I'm responsible for parts.
Plan to do EGR/DPF delete/remove. Also cai and H&S mini maxx(has EDGE now). The cat and muffler are removed but I'm going with a new full system(recommendations??) Should I have the tech install 6.0 manifold? He has a few laying around. What is needed for this and is it worth it? Studs are more in labor but I'm close so I may have him do those. Is this needed? This is a daily driver and I'm not looking for crazy power, plus I don't have a ton of money.
If any of you guys own a parts place let me know if I can get some kind of package deal. Or if any members have these parts you want to get rid of let me know. I'm in FL.
Thanks, sorry for the long read.
