looking for some insight

Hey Guys

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:

35's
levelling kit
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.

egr depends on whether you have emissions in your area.if not i would delete it.if you do i would buy bulletproofdiesel.com kit.when i can afford it thats what i plan on doing for the egr on my 6.4 .ill let the guys with the actual trucks answer the rest.

no emissions in manitoba, so the EGR would be deleted in that case.

Thanks for the info.
