OK well my names Mike and Im from Missouri. Im new to the Duramax world but not the diesel world. I have had a 7.3 and a 6.0 powerstroke and a 02 5.9 and 99 5.9 cummins. Why not try them all and buy a 6.6 ? haha
I just sold my 99 cummins for 15K
I found a 02 6.6 LB7, 4dr, 4x4, Shortbed, Duramax with 202,000 miles! Hes only asking $9500 and i can talk him down im sure.
The trucks pretty much stock far as i know. It has a edge cts but thats getting sold soon as i get it. I dont know the last time the injectors were replaced, no programmer, no turbo anything like that.
Anyways the truck does have a few things wrong with it. It needs tires(no big deal)and the gas gauge is broke. it stays on empty. This a hard fix? and how much would it cost? My 02 cummins did the same thing but wasnt to hard or expensive to fix.
Also he says it leaks some antifreeze out the rear of the motor, he says he things its the freeze plugs? theres only coolant on the driveway every once in a while Any Sugestions? Should this stop me from buying it?
Im plan on putting the following on to the truck:
5" exhaust 6" tip
Triple pod gauges (boost,Pyro,and fuel pressure)
EFI Live (Longhorn Fab Shop tuning)
2" Levleing Kit
Wheels And Tires
I plan on putting a lift pump on some day but not right now, im trying to stay under the 15K mark.
Also i know thetranny will be shot sooner or later but why fix something thats not broke? haha
Well if theres anything i forgot please let me know and please answer my questions or concerns. Would Like to hear all your guys sugestions! Thanks for taking the time to read this!
