My truck has only about 33k miles on it. The EOT/ECT is too much, 18, degrees. I want new engine oil cooler, egr delete & new head studs etc. The truck is in great shape & paid for I want it to last many more miles & years. What I'm looking for is person/ place that is honest & talented. If anyone can help me out I'd be very happy. Thank you in advance.

It is to bad you are not willing to do it yourself, there are many people on the 6.0 site that would be able to walk you through these types of mods.

Otherwise, give this guy a call..

Thank you for the reply. I planned on doing it myself & got most of the parts. As I was following directions to remove turbo I could only find 2 turbo bolts & I thinks directions called for 3.
I don't have a garage & have to work outside.
Have you ever removed your turbo? I really wanted to remove my exhaust cooler & install the blocked up-pipe with the coolant bypass for egr cooler. If possible could you give me some needed pointers? Thanks, Rick B.

I have not dont so on a 6.0, but a 7.3 yes. I believe Toyman has done this a time or to, and would be able to offer you the most advice. He is also right over in Allen Park. there was supposed to be a working gtg here soon, maybe you could jump in on that.
