First Diesel!!!

Hey guys how's it going?
My names james i just traded in my ricer for a diesel, and glad i did i love this truck. It's an 05 crew cab, 109k miles fx4. It has a 3inch suspension lift with air bags in the rear, push bar, wheels. Pretty much it. If you guys can give me a couple pointers on who to buy parts from, or whats first? Leave it stock, or head studs, egr delete? I'd appreciate it.

Re: First Diesel!!!

Get something to monitor your vitals ie. scangaugeII or edge insight. Delete that egr and get a coolant filter, do the upgrade on the stc fitting on the hpop. I been getting my stuff from bulletproof diesel. If you go with the scangaugeII it's about $175 and if you get it from them it's already programmed for the 6.0...

Re: First Diesel!!!

I'd deffintley go for some 4" turbo back exhuast, intake and some gauges. From there its just how mean you wanna make it. Maybe a tuner and or injectors.
