Well, thanks again, friends. I cancelled my service at Ford and got my longtime repair shop to agree to do the job. I'll be buying one online and shipping it to them. I'm saving about $1500!

Awesome! Besides the oil feed and drain tubes (upgraded parts from FORD) another thing to consider is the turbo solenoid harness. With all that heat the plastic connectors are brittle so it's a good thing to replace especially given your shop may not have much experience with the 6.0 and may break it on removal.

Thanks again Joe. I did buy all those parts as well. Not expensive and good to have at the scene of the crime (scheduled for next week).

Awesome. Glad it all worked out.

New turbo install being done today. Since I now understand these things a little better I'm thinking of a turbo boost gauge like this one. I see some come with a sensor and a wire and some use a hose to measure vacuum. Any preferences? Is it easy to install?

I like analog gauges as well but there is a PID to check boost (BST) with the Scangauge II. Not sure where you mount the sensor for a separate guage but I think the intake elbow is what is recommended. Also, the map sensor hose but threaded and tapped into the intake elbow is the way I would go. I like the autometer gauges but you can find specific instructions here: DieselManor - Installation Sheets

Thanks Joe. I meant to post this link to a Ford specific unit, There is an NPT tapped hole somewhere for the hose to go but I don't know the location. I'll check out your link and probably see it there. I do have the Scan Gauge as well, didn't know it would measure boost.

Yeah, it's one of those X-gauge functions so you may have to program it. I get confused as well as to exactly what reading I'm getting because it's different than sea level or where I'm at 7000'. But generally if you are making over 20 psi of boost you are doing pretty good for a van.

i like the isspro gauges, as they look close to the stock cluster.

i prefer electronic boost gauges, easier to run wires then vacuum hose, and if something happens to the wires the gauge doesn't work, if something happens to the boost line to a mechanical gauge, you now have a boost leak. unfortunately though, injection controller needs a boost line run to it. easiest place to add a sensor is to delete the IAH and put the boost sensor there, or if running a mechanical gauge, tee it into the line to the MAP near the intake Y.
