Into

New member here. Still trying to find the rules, but it was clear I needed to do an intro in the welcome letter deal.

Just picked up a 2003 Ford Excursion. Has a 6.0 w 128,000 miles. Pretty damn clean if you ask me. Has minor wear like a worn seat. But that’s about it. It’s a sweet rig. Bought it at 9pm inspected it over w my iPhone flashlight. I was impressed for my first diesel. I paid top dollar and I already have a few friends thinking I’m crazy. But it’s pretty close to factory. No deletes. Has an upgraded egr cooler I was told. Also had a few banks power items installed at the factory or dealer. Idk which one, so 4” exhaust and a waste gate or something else if I remember correctly. The previous owner had the Excusion for 10 years so I’ll take his word on the maintenance history with the condition it’s in. He mentioned it had a new radiator as well. Didn’t see it was a full aluminum until I showed up to look. Drove it home around 125 miles averaged 18.0 mpg on the way home. I was pretty happy with that. I’m an ASE master tech but Ford and diesels are not something I’ve dabbled in much. So I am curious if I can get a reliable 100k miles out of it. I’ll post pics when I figure out how.
I have no intentions of building a 6k lbs race suv. I’m pretty big on it running clean and efficient. If I can tune for more mpg I will otherwise all factory is the plan. For now.

Take a look @ the Ford 03-07 6.0L Powerstroke Forums - Good info in there about the 6.0Ls. There is an Excursion sub-forum also.

Thanks, I was all through it even before my purchase. Figured I’d join sooner rather than later.
