    Bought a 05 250 reg cab long box. 5.4 118kms on it 10g cert etested and never plowed.

    Looked at the 6L but of the 2 I looked at that met my criteria, both had thrown a cel from egr and related problems. How plugged up were they I will never know..I woulda blocked the egr anyway but my buddy a diesel tech told me unless he pulls the egr and cooler out he wont know and stay away..hes done big repairs from this issue.
    Still bugs me, but I figure 5.4 in the reg cab will do fine.
    Some of the condos I do have bitched about my dmax and my buddys 6.0 pstroke plowing in the early am as their previous contractors used gassers..having a gasser should solve that.

    Truck comes with the upgraded 6000lb coils in the front and is super stiff with just the 5.4 up there. Hoping to find a 9.5 western mvp for it.

    Pick it up Thursday once its cert and etested and will post pics then.

    I think its the combo of the dmax plow, 6pstroke plow and 7.3 pstroke cube van that wakes em up haha
