I don't feel.

Sounds like you need some custom tuning and some larger injectors.

I don't worry about it. My truck has a 7.3 and a 6-speed. So in my mind it is a lot more reliable than the other guys with auto's. They will be putting in trans in before I will and that alone is $3,000. So I just let them have there fun my truck isn't the fastest and I know that but it's fast enough for me to have some fun with.

could be worse atleast its not a 6.5 turbo under the hood. My buddy had a bone stock 94 dodge 3500 4x4 manual with 3.55 gear and 235/85 tires and it was a dog compared to my 95 cc 4x4 3.55 auto stock also. Mind you $200 fuel plate and wastegate elbow mod on the 12v would be blowin smoke on our obs trucks.

One main reason i want to sell my psd is they are too $$ to make power.

i know mine isn't fast, i don't really race anyone because i know I'll probably get beat, also before i do any motor upgrades, such as turbo, injectors, i would have to upgrade my old stock tranny

Its easy dont race anyone and ya wont get beat.... LOL

I have raced maybe 4 or 5 trucks since I have had mine...I have beat one dodge with a 24valve on superchips with a manual, I have a manual too I was a better driver for sure he couldn't shift. I have been beat a few times by buddies with dmax's and auto trannys.. we all knew it would turn out that way with the dmax's but we were bored and none of us cared we were having fun...Ill tell ya my truck sure gets respect from the dmax guys when we go on our off road trips and we are towing ... especially since I'm running 7 years behind in technology there trucks are newer then mine
