Well, I finally got a Powerstroke! Man my brother is jealous. I'm only 20 and have a nicer truck then him. I bought myself a nice 1999 7.3L Extended Cab Super Duty Dually. And its a cowboy cadillac, got a eight foot flatbed and nice lights. The guy that I bought it from put an aftermarket exhaust, not sure which and shes not loud. He also slapped another turbo in, and its a nice hard workin unit. I don't think he did much else.
So mainly I'm new to anything diesel and I've already had a few problems. I'm mainly using this truck as a farm/trailer toter truck. I haul alot of hay and needed the weight and power to pull large 8 to 10 tons. And I was runnin her through a field loadin hay and I was hittin bumps and all of a sudden no power, after she was put in a shop and 800 bucks later I found out I blew up the torque converter.
So mainly Ive searched this sight and its mainly about jacked up, over horsepowered rigs, nothin wrong with it, not for me though, and I'm lookin for info on putting in cold air intakes, intercoolers, and added components to get power, milage, and not over due it. Its still got to pull a horse trailer when I'm done and be used as a farm truck.
Thats not really true. It just that the high powered rigs get more spotlight than the normal working trucks but most people on here use their truck to work with. There is a lot of knowledgeable people on here so if you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask. And welcome to the org.
