Got my van back from the diesel repair shop today, it went in at the end of June. Had the 6.0 gone over, complete engine bullet proofed, all of the known problems taken care of, bolts replaced with head studs, egr gone, cat gone, all harnesses and about 200 parts replaced and the addition of a custom programed Livewire tuner with 3 custom programs, tow, street and performance. $14000.00 worth of work. Good Sam (my extended warranty folks) paid $2400.00 of the work, the rest was all my doing. Well, picked it up and when I left on the frontage road I pushed the pedal down......OMG! The van took off like a flippin rocket, ten mph to 70 in about four seconds and tires yelling at every gear change.....and that was on the STREET tune! Well, I guess it will tow my trailer better even though it was pretty good before and I can only hope it will make it through a number of years with the 6.0 problems not resurfacing. As far as it getting better fuel economy....probably not, at least not until the smile starts to relax on my face when I'm tooling around town......

It's what you learn after you know it all, that counts...

Well.....crap crap crap......yesterday coming home from work something went BANG and all umph went in the dumper. Still drivable, no smoke, just no boost at all. Diesel shop needs to look at it, dropped it off yesterday afternoon, could be the turbo, they seem to think it may be the intercooler boots. Guess we'll see. OK van gods, I need to start getting some breaks here.

Good news is it was something simple, $50. part, don't know how much the labor is yet. Should have it back tomorrow. Oh, by the way, turbo boot is what went bye bye.
