Stage 2 Kit?
I have a 2010 F250 King Ranch with the 6.4 Turbo. Currently I am getting between 11.5 - 12 mpg around town and haven't really had out on the highway to get an avg there. I have not had this truck long and already have a list of things I want to do...however, I don't want to just start tossing $$ at it "just because". I need to keep it 50 state legal, so DPF and whatnot has to stay I do believe...if I am wrong, please correct me. This is my first diesel and I am learning but know what I like.
This truck is straight stock King Ranch with 6.5' bed 275/70R18 tires and most likely factory shocks with bed cover. Truck has just a little under 150k miles. Will be used primarily to pull a 19' camper and two 4 wheelers or one side x side or any combination there of. The very first thing I noticed about this engine is the HORRIBLE throttle response (not turbo lag, although that's bad too). I could out run this thing on foot for the first 20 yards lol...(not really, but its bad).
Having said all that, I have about a $5k budget to get this throttle response, fuel mileage and turbo lag taken care of...obviously, the less it takes the better and I can put it other places in this truck. First thing I found doing a quick search is the Edge Stage 2 Kit going for $1312.95 from Edge Products website (I can't post links due to my low post count so...) comes with cold air intake, Evolution CTS 2 tuner and exhaust that I believe is DPF back 5". Does anyone know anything about these? From what I can see...again this is my first diesel so I am learning and SIMPLE is good, I don't want a degree in diesel engineering to make it work lol...this is a decent deal and should resolve at least a couple issues. Anyone have any input, thoughts or suggestions?
