Im fairly certain I have been asked to bulletproof something at least two million times in the past year. I understand what they mean when they say it but Im not sure they understand what they are going to get exactly. Or rather what they should be able to do with a bulletproofed truck.There are a couple examples that come to mind instantly. First would be the infamous 6.0 ...
Hi All I just got a 03 f 250 super duty with a 6.0 in it I was talking to a diesel guy about it and said I heard that it will help a lot if you bullet proff it he looked at it and said the EKG had been removed and that should show that it has already been done dose that sound right to any of you truck runs great so not having the EKG has not hurt it is there a way I can tell if it has ...
6.0L Power Stroke Diesel Total cost to 34bulletproof34 a 6.0 So I am looking into getting rid of my 6.7 and going to an older 6.0. 3905 06 or 07. If I find a stock one what is the total cost of bulletproofing it I have done a little research and it seems once this is done whatever it includes the truck should...
2003 F350 6.0 Diesel. Just bought this truck don39t know everything about it but it has been modified somewhat and has head studs and turbo back exhaust. The truck makes 26 PSI of boost according to read more
Without seeing the bills and talking to the shop who did the work assume everyone is lying when they tell you how awesome their 6.0 Powerstroke is. Navistock dropped the ball on this engine big time. High pressure oil pumps EGR coolers injectors... List goes on. They can go from running like a top to being a 10k pound boat anchor.
Again a 6.0L is not a 34Bullet Proof Diesel34 engine unless four of the five pattern failures are addressed with genuine Bullet Proof Diesel parts. This includes the problematic OEM oil cooler as well as the FICM module EGR cooler and water pump.
But quickly Bulletproof Diesel lost control of their branding and Bulletproof generically referred to an upgraded 6.0 engine kit often consisting of a built motor. The 6.0L Backstory What went wrong at Ford. 20032007 Ford 6.0L diesel engines have a bad reputation.
I was looking at an 05 f250 Powerstroke for 14k with 200k miles and I have heard alot about the 6.0s having alot of problems. The particular Powerstroke I am looking. At has been Bulletproofed would that change the outlook on the problems I might could have with the truck
Bulletproofed 6.0L Powerstroke are trucks that have already had the significant necessary improvements made to make the trucks more reliable. Bulletproof kits for a 6.0L Powerstroke cost 20005000. That doesnt include labor. Installing a Bulletproof kit is very labor intensive so expect to pay a couple thousand in labor costs.
Just my 2 cents but none of those modifications/repairs were really geared towards preventing the main issues a 6.0 is vulnerable to. maybe 34pos34 could describe a stock 6.0 but in my opinion a 6.0 that has been bulletproofed is a completely different species
Easiest way to tell is to look for the BulletProof Diesel sticker in the back window. grin If you39re looking for something more scientific these guys have got you on the right path. But if you39re in the market for a 6.0 a better question to ask is 34How do I evaluate a used 6.0 prior to purchase34.
how do i tell if EGR has been deleted 6.0 Aftermarket. With a situation like you described it is impossible to tell by simply looking at the truck unless the EGR valve is gone. The only other way would be if a new intake manifold was put on the truck and you pulled the elbow off and there was no soot in there.
I bulletproofed my 6.0 but since I can39t see inside of an engine I had no idea that it needed way more love than the bulletproof. So for instance I originally bought my truck for 10k 200000 miles. Not bad and I already had the figure of 5k on top of that for the full bulletproofing including the labor. So that39s
