Well been in the market for a diesel for a while, finally got one. 2003 ford 6.0 diesel CC long bed 2x4 with 183k for $7900.

First off do you guys think I got a good deal? It is a clean truck with a clean car fax and clean OASIS.

Im sure I will have more questions to come thanks guys.

Check it to see if the big issue points have been taken care of, EGR, Oil cooler, ARP studs etc... Have it gone over with a fine tooth comb, change your fluids, oil, trans, diff, and filter. Start reading up and enjoy the truck I love my 6.0 and hopefully you will as well. As far as getting a good deal it could be the best ever or a wolf in sheeps clothing if it has hidden issues... Welcome to the nation!!!

Well guys got her home and everything, having a little bit of trouble with it. EGR problems which i expected, EOT and ECT are pretty good i average about 2-6 degree difference. I planned on doing the oil cooler and egr delete but have a question which i searched for but cant really get the answer:

1. If I do EGR delete do I have to do headstuds or will it be ok?

My mechanic said i would overheat the heads and they would lift with delete and that I should just get new egr cooler.

I would probably do oil cooler EGR delete with SCT tuner, and blue spring kit, and maybe coolant filter kit.

You won't need headstuds with an EGR delete. Your mechanic seems to be overthinking things a little LOL
