Average Cost For Bulletproofing

Hey fellas. Im new to the 6.0. Ive had a few 7.3s but not a 6.0. What prices are you guys seeing for bulletproofing? I want to have the EGR deleted, ARP studs installed, New gaskets, Possibly a new oil cooler, and a coolant filter installed. Thanks in advance

Re: Average Cost For Bulletproofing

Depends on if your doing the work yourself or not. Labor can eat you alive. Like said...$3000 - $7000

Re: Average Cost For Bulletproofing

I put about $4200 into mine, doing the labor myself. I did a lot of research before hand and got quite a few bits of advice here before making any decisions. I also didn't buy a kit but bought piece meal of parts I thought to be the best bang for the buck based on reviews.
In that, I did the following replacement/services...
OEM gaskets
ARP studs
Head resurfacing
Injector O-rings
Oil cooler
Oil cooler housing gasket kit
Blue spring upgrade
6.7 banjo bolts
Stand pipes
Coolant filter
Coolant change to Cat ELC (Red)
All associated gaskets
Oil change to Rotella T-6
Motorcraft oil filter
Motorcraft fuel filters
Restore/Restore+ coolant flush
Oil rail ball tubes and O-rings
HPOP O-ring/d-rings
The truck had already had an EGR cooler delete kit installed

I have just recently found that I had an HPOP shaft seal blow out and have just put another $1200 (Including shipping) into it for..
HPOP rebuild (Stage 1 21* upgrade-Pat, the Diesel Guru, at Diesel Speed and Marine in TX)
IPR rebuild (Included in the $575 price of HPOP upgrade/rebuild)
ICP sensor
ICP pigtail
HPOP o-ring kit (Because, why not?)

I will be doing another air test, oil change and coolant flush BEFORE the truck gets cranked on again.

Once the cash storm settles I will most likely send the FICM in for an Atlas 40 tune and 58volt upgrade.

All in all, its been a battle but that's mainly been due to cash flow issues. Ya know, bills over toys....I think Im somewhere in the range of around $6k total with the small extras needed...IE lubricants, additives and the like.

Hope this helps.

04' (Late 03' engine) Lariat PSD, Auto, Crew cab, 4x4, high idle mod, egr delete, 6.4 banjo, blue spring, coolant filter, ARP studs, 21* HPOP, 6.4 starter, more to come.....
