just bought a house got my obama money $8000 tax credit the 6.0 has been good to me for 180k believe it or not its never been in the shop but i know its day will come so arps and a egr delete will for sure be going in and im starting to have some injector issues sometimes it skips when u give it just enough throttle to downshift so im trying to decide on injectors but i open to any info or things i might want to do while the cabs off to try to keep my 6.0 doing as good as she has been for a long time what r some combos i can do to it to make it relible as possible:ford::ford:

going bigger in injectors, or even with stock injectors, I would think an Air Dog 2 or at least some sort of regulated return or fuel system upgrade would be a good thought. With the cab off it will be much easier to get to the back of the heads too.

where do you reside? Just watch the smog issues, which I have to deal with in California.

Sounds like you are level headed and are putting studs in and the delete before anything else. If you decide to put in bigger injectors, it woud be smart to upgrade the fuel delivery system. With 180k miles, it wouldnt hurt to throw a new TC in the torqshift... just a thought

Injectors are gonna be pricey, here my thing. Price out everything you wanna do and see the total cost for everything part wise. Cause after that your looking at labor cost to do the work as well. Believe me alot of this adds up, also you gotta count in as well if they find anything wrong inside your motor as well just gotta be prepared for everything before you go spending all your money. Start with the basic and make a list.

I would install a ITP RR and a 04 up pipe without the scoop and a upgraded EGR cooler

I've got a 62/70 paried with a set of Casserly 190's and love the turbo, hate the II drain line with a passion!!!!! So, I made my own and haven't had any problems since. These turbos are pricey new, but you can find them used pretty cheap. There is a 62/80 in the classifieds for sale right now for a really good price! I'll shoot you a PM concerning this turbo. Also, the sound from a fixed vane turbo sounds awesome, some people think you have an old 7.3L and then you can surprise the crap out of them when you blow by them:evil I've done that one a couple of timesLOL
