Hi from Vancouver canada

Just purchased my 03 f350 6.0 diesel about a month ago and love it. I did a
Lot of research and really wanted the 7.3 with all the bad rep about the 6.0 but that being said I got an awesome deal on it
Because of that. Truck had previous work done to it such as 3 new injectors, FICM and egr delete and no tuner with 180xxxkms. It looked good and took the chance. Wanting to do some upgrades in near future such as new shocks, blue spring upgrade, ball joints need replacing and rear leafs. Also coolant filter and flush and oil change and filters. I'm wanting to do most work myself to save some money. Really excited about my new purchase.

Congrats and welcome to the site! Best advice I could give you for a 6.0 is get some kind of a monitor on your truck. Right now it cant communicate with you. And before winter gets here (thats what in about 2 weeks for you guys??) your gonna want to do a oil change and make sure your running a synthetic. I run the t6 and it makes a huge cold weather start up diffrence!

Welcome fellow Canuck. I have the 04 F350 and love the power. Unfortunately within a month of owning it the FICM went on it so the guys at BD Perfomance in Abby put a new 58V one in with a stock tune on it. Apparently my alternator went and thats what caused the FICM to fail. Since putting the new one in it runs like a dream. Oil change and rad flush once it stops raining here (which should be around May 2014).

Cheers

Martin
