$2K TO SPEND

Alright, got rid of the 7.3 and picked up a 06 6.0 KR. I know the basics with the 6.0 but Im needing to know what brands to use for studs, EGR delete, tuner, ect. Maybe some of the venders can tune in and give me some insight. Might be looking for some kind of bundle to get started 'fixin' the new pickup.

Sinister EGR delete, ARP Headstuds, replaced oem headgaskets, HD Bellowed up-pipes, 03 Turbo, SCT x3 with tunes from Gearhead...waiting impatiently for a bigger turbo and injectors...

Re: $2K TO SPEND

$2k?? I say hookers and blow

In all seriousness, ARP studs, SCT SF3 or X3 with custom tunes, just about any EGR delete. Exhaust also but most importantly, get an Edge CTS for monitoring stuff with EGT probe. Hope this helps.

River city diesel has a 6.0 solution package on their site arp studs gaskets egr delete and SCT tuner. I think it's around $1600. Check out the site. They are good to deal with

Re: $2K TO SPEND

is it currently puking?
is your EGR blown?
what is your ECT vs. EOT spread?


go buy a $150 scanguage II and start monitoring your coolant vs. oil temps. Anything under 15F when driving ~10 minutes at 60 mph is "okay"


why do you want to throw parts/money at the truck when it probably isn't needed? People always talk about bulletproofing the 6.0 and how the EGR needs to be deleted. Fact of the matter is, the EGR is just a messenger of the oil cooler demise. No point killing the EGR. Just turn it off with a tuner. Deleting the EGR causes problems in late 06-07 trucks. Without the valve, the fan clutch doesn't work and leads to overheating issues. Only way around that is to leave the EGR valve laying ontop of the motor and tune the EGR out.


as far as studs...that's a personal choice. I know they're in my future, but that's because I can't help myself and want to up the boost...I mean fun

Re: $2K TO SPEND

It's not so much fix it now because there aren't any known problems, more like get it ready for later..Some of the mods I'm considering doing up front are to get ready for bigger and better things later on.

If you plan on sticking with the stock fuel system I would do the blue spring update in the fuel pressure regulator.

Re: $2K TO SPEND

Bring it to me. For $2,500, we will install ARPs, add SCT, delete egr cooler, straight pipe exhaust and cut injectors to 190cc with stock nozzles.
