Im surprised there is not more activity on the Alberta forum, there are fords at work everywhere! I got my '05 F350 a few months ago from Red Deer and I need some advice with a build plan. Ive got my EGR/coolant flush/headstud crap almost figured but now I've ran into problems with the suspension and may need to start on that first. But I dont know where to start? Any albertans out there with some advice, maybe a good shop to go to? Heres to a shot in the dark...

There's a psd owners group on Facebook for bc/ab/sask but that's all I've seen. I'm from red deer myself looking for someone knowledgeable willing to help with an egr delete :)

tonto ; wow 190000 on a stock egr cooler thats good . when the dealer pulled up my oasis it said my truck had a cooler go at 55k and 1 injector besides that i am all stock as far as heads and injectors go . just for info are you still running stock injectors and head bolts ? as far as the egr delete goes i am also wanting to get that done but havent ever done it before , but with all the info on this site i may build up the balls to tear into it this spring while i am off . i would recomend changing your oil cooler as well since you are in that far already . also do u no what your ect eot delta is ? they say if its over 15 degrees apart it must be changed as well . mine is floating around 12 .

My deltas have slowly been climbing since I bought it last year, but between 7-9 degrees as of last week. Had the stc fitting/ dummy plugs and stand pipes updated so I feel okay with just the egr delete and turbo line upgrades. Also blue spring. Where you located?

im located in stettler about 45 min from red deer . 7-9 delta seems great compared to mine . did you do all the mods your self ? i seem to be working on my truck everyother weekend doing something to make it better , just added the gogo solenoid for the direct clutch makes the 3 to 5 shift less sloppy more line press. real firm now . do u run tunes on your truck or just stock tuning ?

Only thing I haven't done was the leveling kit and stc fitting. I'm ready to do an egr delete, turbo line updates and blue spring but I'm still a little hesitant on digging that far in by myself lol. No tunes yet but as soon as the delete is in I'm ordering Matt's SRL lite. You do all your mods?

From Blackfalds, here, My EGR Delete was done over at Canada Custom's in Red Deer.
Then I ended up finishing myself as the Mech only blocked the up pipe instead of replacing it as he should have. They did right though, Gave me the missing parts and threw in a set of airbags. They fired the tech after I finished explaining why you don't use a block off plate on the up pipe.

I've learned to do a lot of my own work, every time I hit the stealership its a min $3grand. Replacing an injector and Glow plug right now.

Yeah there is nobody trustworthy around our parts mechanically. I just had some suspension work done at Gearhead in Red Deer, $1800 later... Wouldn't let anyone around here touch the engine though.

I just had my EGR removed at Diesel Injection (AKA Vimy Diesel)
Great work but you really need to book ahead around 10-20 days.
