2006 6.0 hard start when warm?

I have a 60,000 mile F350 crew cab 4x4. Only mod is it has no muffler or cat and dumps out about 5 feet behind the down pipe (came that way).

It will start easily when cold then dies when it warms up.

I did the voltage test on the FICM... shows 48 volts at all times.

Through searching on here it sounds like I need the upgraded STC fitting kit.

Where is the best place and what part number is the STC kit.

Also what should I do while I have it apart?

EGR delete?
Standpipe / dummy plug kit?
fuel pressure springs?
clean out the vgt vanes on the turbo?

I can pretty much take anything apart and reinstall it properly, but any help with a suggestions on what else to do would greatly be appreciated...

My mechanic friend is coming over with scan tools tonight to see what codes are showing up.

Oh yeah.. I do have a pretty sweet mod to start.. the license plate says
6LEAKER... made my day when it came in the mail.

Love my ford and cant wait to slowly build it up to the 6.0 monster she can be!

How are your deltas? I would conisder doing the oil cooler as well as you will have easy access once the turbo and pedestal is off.

STC Fitting: 4C3Z-9B246-F
Stand Pipe and Dummy Plug Kit: 6E7Z-9A332-B
Blue Spring Kit: 3C3Z-9T517-AG
Oil Cooler: 3C3Z-6A642-CA

Google Autonation Ford White Bear. They are the cheapest.

Thank you so much.

I'll get my friend to put the scanner on it in the next few days.

Sorry for so many questions. Is it best to get a stock ford oil cooler?

It's kinda sounding like if the engine is that far apart.. I probably should bite the bullet and pull the cab and do the studs and gaskets. Then I'll be on the road to having it where it needs to eventually be.

Thanks for all the responses. I should have joined this site long ago.

Hello Robbyvanz

Sorry if it's a beginner question.. I googled it and everything.

Yes OEM is best for the oil cooler. Read this thread for how to check your delta's:

And thanks again for the White Bear ford tip... Super good pricing there.

Thank you very much.

I know the problem with the STC fitting isn't bad enough to do the studs.. but Ive wanted to do studs for a long time so I can do a programmer and an eventually turbo and injectors.

I got the prices from White bear for the Headgaskets that include the standpipes...

not sure if that includes the dummy plugs. too.

So far..

STC fitting
Blue Spring kit
Oil cooler
Head gaskets/ stand pipes (not sure if dummy plugs come in the kit also)
ARP studs.
EGR delete
Clean out the turbo

Are the coolant filter kits good also put on it?

When you go online.. the bulletproof kits include turbo seals.. exhaust manifold seals.. intake gaskets..

And I saw somewhere when you send the head out to have it checked that you also need valve seals...

Any idea on additional part numbers on anything I should also include?

Thanks for all the help. I've been reading a ton. But man is there lots of info.

Damon

The OEM head gasket kit does NOT include dummy plugs. You will need 2. Part # W302908.

The most popular Coolant filter kit is the Sinister setup. It will help filter all that crap in your coolant. If you are serious about doing the head studs, read this parts list thread from Tuscany.
