Beans is still is business thankfully, but the mechanic i went to is a bit south, worked for ford when 6.0s came out, and had a somewhat major hand in production of the 6.0s and 7.3s. Wrote his own code, burnt the tires off in front of ford, built him a shop and went into business himself. Awesome guy. At 6'4 and 315, i appreciate anyone who calls himself "fatboy". Also when i went to see him today had 12 bays, and 7 or 8 had 6.0s in them. I feel good about it. He was a straight shooter, charges $80 an hour, invited me to come and stand over his shoulder, bring in my own parts, and its his standard to put your old parts in your bed and send them home with you if you want them, but also to see that the job was done, he'll of course get rid of them if asked as well.
I will definitely look into the AE
, probably go ahead and order it.. I like the bosch, it seems to show about everything, gets info from turbo, ficm
, injectors, everything. But as much as i have heard about the AE
, well I didnt get the "big" toolbox for nothing. I work on my equipment, tractors, skid steers, dozer, everything, just a little scared of the 6.0s. I have a chevy tahoe, and my girlfriends beamer to work on, so wouldnt mind having both.
I am scared of the injectors, i've done it on equipment, but im a big guy with big hands and a bit closterphobic...easy to screw up it seems. Ill eventually tackle some of the smaller stuff, i learned today my ficm
is a reman, was planning on upgrading but ill leave it for now. Ill definetely look into the egr
No coolant pushed, but I do have some smack if i go from idle to heavy throttle.. injector maybe?
I think ill try this guy and see where it gets me. If not, to beans we go.
I understand the busy life, i'm in the slowest time of the year at work and still cant seem to find time to get anything done. Actually cleaned the house finally, at 3 oclock this morning... damn OCD kicks in at very odd times, got up to pee and didnt get back in bed til almost 7, thankfully i gave myself the day off. I'm a great boss to myself! I have family in the area, may have to buy your dinner next time i'm in town, will owe you by the time this damn truck is done!
