    Hi Spikedog,
    I just joined FTE, and having a motorhome close in style to yours with a 6.0, I wanted to see what you've been up to with it.
    Anyway, I've only had my RV (Four Winds Siesta, E-450) a few years and I've done some superficial things like all fluid and filter changes, DieselSite coolant filter, and am using a Scangauge II. My deltas are OK for now. IMHO, the EGR system just doesn't make sense, and in B.C., we don't have testing that would require I keep it. But, I would have to pay someone to do an oil cooler and EGR delete. I am curious if you've been motivated to do that. I'm on the site as well, but while its a great RV site, the Powerstroke sub-forum is pretty quiet.
    Personally, I think the 6.0 is a great RV motor but a poor ambulance motor for putzing around cities and excessive idling.
