New kid from BC

Hey guys!
I've been lurking for a few months since getting my truck and I figured it was high time I introduced myself to you.
Name's Nathan. In August I picked up an 05 F350 6.0. It currently sits on 37s with a procomp lift & traction bars, and bushwhacker flares.

Since I got it, I've been dealing with a couple issues. First I started getting bad stiction, so I ran some REV-X through it. Then the oil pressure sensor went on me so I replaced that.
To finish the trifecta, I realized that the thermostat was stuck open. Replaced that, now I'm up to about 300 miles out of a tank.

I'm still looking at what I can do for increasing mileage, but she's getting there.

Congrats and Welcome Aboard!
First thing is get yourself a Monitor, no not the lizard on nat geo, sorry I couldn't resist. Something like an edge CTS so you can keep an eye on what's going on. Then bullet proof it. Egr, oil cooler, arp head studs, coolant filtration. There's a ton of excellent information on here in the 6.0 section. Once you have her buttoned up, the 6.0L is a good Diesel!

There's almost too much good info on here....
Right now I've got Torque running on my phone. Seems like HPOP is in good condition, egr valve is working....deltas are sitting about 17 degrees though. Coolant at 186, oil temp at 204.

Plan is to get head studs, oil cooler, egr delete and SCT. I'm just waiting for simmer so I'm DD'ing my bike.
