New Powerstroke owner

Well im 17 years old, and i have loved Powerstrokes every since i first saw one. i recently bought a 1995 f-250 that i just got. it is chipped and has some other mods but the dealer that i got it from doesnt know what all is done. i dont know how to find out what kind of chip it has or anything. i definatly can tell it is chipped because i have driven stock trucks and the power difference is amazing. It also has rear airbags for a camper. i straight piped it and it dumps the black smoke!!! i love that. well anyways, i dont know much about this stuff so i was wondering if you guys could answer these basic questions? inside the door where the VIN is and i was wondering what these things mean: Transmission E, Axel C5, Springs Q5A, Body R6M, and WB 155. Then on the turbo it says 1.10 A/R. Sorry for the long post and basic questions, but i just want to know about my truck

Axel= 4.10 gears with limited slip
1.10 A/R= the size of the compressor side of your turbo.

pull the E-brake peddal loose (3 nuts)and the pcm is behind it you will be able to the see what chip you have. if you have no switch for a chip its a single burn chip.either a superchip or banks more than likey

thank you guys for the info and the welcoms. i apreciate it, 4.10 gears means that the truck is better for pulling? i know it feels like its geared low because it doesnt take off fast. it has a banks transcommand and it shifts at nearly 3000rpm's.

Yup, means it is geared lower than some of the other ones. Better for pulling is correct. Some of the other trucks cam with 3.73 gears which is nicer for gettin it down the highway at higher speeds.

3.73 weren't available in the OBS IIRC. You're right about being better for the highway though. Wish I had 3.55, then I might be inclined to take the freeway more often as opposed to the backroads. I like the backroads though better scenery!
