mine let go

well I was waiting to see how long it would take me to blow the sum ***** up and at 32,881 it let go. full boost, 4wheel high, and DEAD hooking. after leaving and switching back to 2wd at around 65 the truck shut off and the trans was in pieces. waitin to get the truck back with the new trans.

I had my fun and its about time to just not beat up on it as much.


I did hear a rumor from a Diesel tech. saything running a tuner on the Torqshift seems to mess them up because it goes in and out of over drive alot. any opinions?

my truck is an 08 F450

My opinion is that your truck should be flagged.

I don't think its time to not beat on it as much. Hell its still under warranty, beat the hell out of it.

shiiittt the reason i bought my truck from where i did was due to the fact the service manager is an awesome lady and said " do what ever work you want to do to it and ill fix it... just be aware that if a ford regional inspector comes in to look at it for warranty work they might say no if you bring some kinda race truck in"

my trucks just a 450 that well pulls my equipment, my drag car, or pulls up to something at a stop light that needs to be showed this big ol truck aint slow. i

....hence the reason FMC gets all pissed at the thought of tuners. I was made to sign a form when I bought my truck that stated that if I were to use a chip or tuner that my warranty would be void
