New Guy from Texas (tons of questions)

I spent several now getting lost in the info, so now I'll introduce myself.

Hello I should be hunting.

I have a 2006 F250 4x4. Love this truck. I'll get some pics posted soon.
My truck is pretty much stock except for the Bully Dog programmer and the camper shell. I'm thinking about adding a leveling kit and new shocks. I thought I would start the questions here. Which thread would be the best place to move this topic to?

Thanks for letting me join and looking forward to getting help and posting up my projects.

Here's one of many you should read as. 6.0L owner, it'll help you out big time and possibly save you thousands of dollars. Stickies are like the special threads that are marked as a "sticky" because they're so informative and important.

This is a good one:
Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.


And this is the rest of the stickies in the general section:

Welcome to the site neighbor! MTS678 is right on track. Read up and learn all you can about monitoring your 6.0 . A monitor is a must do or have item for the 6.0. basically right now your truck cannot talk with you. It cant say hey Im about to blow my top (egr) and cost you a chit load of cash.....the monitor will pay you back, I guarantee.
Check out the scanguage II, or something like the Edge CTS. (their is a lot more out there but this is all I've ever messed with.)

678,
Thanks for the links. Looks to be good info, but as a beginner reading through this I'm finding PID's, PCM's, ECT's, HPO's, EOT's, etc. I hat to show my ignorance but I do not know what any of the acronyms mean and I get lost quick.

I hear ya man, it's alot to take in when getting started.
PCM is the computer.
ECT- coolant temp
Eot- oil temp
Egt- exhaust gas temp
Hpop- high pressure oil pump
Pid's- idk the exact definition but it's the the different parameters you can monitor IE- egt, eot, ect, and so on.

I had no clue what all this was either when I came here. But that's the good thing about this site, people will help you out and get knowledgeable!

I'm not sure about the bulldog programmer but I think they eat up transmissions over time, might wanna switch to an sct tuner but first gey some gauges- coolant temp, oil temp, and egt. Or get the edge CTS insight, it's a digital monitor and allows you to monitor up to 10 parameters at once. Fuel pressure is also thing to monitor on the 6.0l as well.

Here's a link for the edge CTS: http://www.edgeproducts.com/product.php?pk=145&pvk=405
