looking for some insight
Just reading over all this, i am fresh to the site you can see, i am looking at buying between the 7.3 and the 6.0.
I am somewhat mechanically inclined and know most mechanical terms, however what do you guys mean by EOT/ECT and also CCV and ELC?
I would be using the truck mostly for commuting, and bringing quads and sled home from work periodically, so what are you guys seeing usually for fuel mileage?
I am trying to find a local crew cab lariat, and the search is continuing.
If you guys have heard of wallsrodcustom.com, they are good friends of mine, although i havent gone through them for information as of yet due to how busy they have been. All of the aftermarket pieces i may need can be sourced out through them.
i have heard different things about the EGR, some guys delete it, some guys dont, so what is the difference between the choices?
what i would be looking to do is:
HID headlights and foglights
a custom straight exhaust
an intake of some sort
and depending on what you guys say about the EGR, i will decide on what to do with that.
I do not want to have to touch the tranny!
I am up in the air about this whole diesel thing and appreciate the help, but simply telling me to get head studs isnt too much help. I know they are an issue, but would prefer to get around having to do them AS LONG AS POSSIBLE, without causing any damage.
Im sure i will have more questions, but thats all for now.
