New here. Have a few questions about my 6.7

Hi all!

Im new here and this place seems awesome. I have a 2011 F350 6.7 Lariat and LOVE IT!!!!! Just a few questions for all the experts on here:

1. I have noitced a clicking noise when from the engine area when the vehicle warms up. Just curious about what it is??

2. Can you use shell rotella T in the 6.7??

3. Is there any way to remove the front spoiler and the annoying safety plates underneith??

4. What is a good front end leveling kit to get?? and if I got one would I have to add a leaf to the rear??

Thank you all in advance

First off, welcome to the org.

1. Clicking noise could be the EGR valve opening and closing. Hard to say, I don't hear it on mine, but I've never listened.

2. As long as the oil is within the specified weights listed in the manual, you can use it. I use either Rotella T or Motorcraft. I have oil analysis done and have never noticed a difference between brands.

3. The front air dam just bolts on but there is a very ugly chrome lip that becomes visible if you do. It has bolt holes in it and isn't meant to be seen. Best bet is either cut yours down or order an 08-09 air dam as they are shorter.

4. Somebody else will chime in.

For your third question either cut your current one or order one off a 2wd truck, they are alot shorter than the 4wd air dam. I'm pretty sure the 08-09 Air dams will not bolt up.

Thank you very much for the response. For the air dam, there are these two metal thin plates that hang down, im wondering if anyone has taken them off?

You might consider just leaving it. It is there to cut the air flow under the vehicle and give the truck better aerodynamics. You might see a drop in fuel economy on the highway....

Get the Ready Lift SST. You can lift the front and back and it is easy to install.

Do you recommend spending the extra money on the Stage 2 leveling kit?

Thanks, JC

Depending on if you tow get the kit that gives an extra 2 inchs in rear for towing. Look on YouTube for "Ford super duty ready lift" there are some good videos
