The time for my truck has finally come! I'm getting studs,new EGR cooler(new smog laws),oil cooler, and a 4 guage pillar, but I'm wondering if anyone has any more input on what else can be done while everything is apart. I know this subject has been brought up a few times but it seems we always learn something new every few weeks. I'm not doing a fuel system because I'm keeping stock injectors and I'm primarily towing, and I've heard mixed information on reliability. Anything you guys can think of(that doesn't cost a fortune,getting new tires to the tune of about $1600 too), just give the info. I'm sure the guys doing my studs with all the experience they have will have some input as well, but I figure the more people chime in the better!!
elite has a coolant recirculation hose that taps into both heads to keep the heads cool. it can only be done with the geads off
i had this done to mine too, it also ties into my coolant filtration kit.
here are a few pics from when mine were done. you can see the silver AN fitting by the flex pipe.
here is the other with a blue AN tee that gets tied into the coolant filter
03 EB EXcursion 6.0L
Edge Juice W/Attitude (gauges only)
Glow Shift Oil, Coolant, & Trans temp gauges
SCT X3 w/ xtreme street from Innovative
MBRP 4" turbo back
Jefferson State Diesel Coolant Filtration System
FICM modded by Jefferson State Diesel
Slotted brake rotors (front)
Mag-Hytec trans pan
They don't look under the cooler, but they are planning to scan the truck to see if the EGR valve is working(I'll have it turned off the rest of the year) and it has to see exhaust to work and not set off a DTC or check engine light from coming on, and that will fail the smog test.
