Buffalo444 Fixemup thread

Well, not doin a whole lot today, and I get tired of trying to remember where and when I do things, so I'm gonna start my own personal maintenence/mods thread. Although I think we should have a section for this, but I digress. I'll throw in some stuff I've already done. Maybe we'll get a sub-forum where everyone (who wants to) can do this. Idk, I got the idea from a powerlifting forum I'm part of.

My first oil analysis. I misinformedly (is that a real word? ) told blackstone it was some 15-40w oil, come to find out it was 10-30. oh well

My second oil analysis. This was on Rotella T 15w-40. I'm currently running motorcraft 15w-40 and it seems to run quieter, although I think I'll just be changing oil twice a year (once in the spring, once in the fall) and running Rotella T 15w-40 and Rotella T6 5w-40.

I recently changed the fuel filter, It was a really dark brown, had at least 10k miles on it. Now nothing but 3 crank starts wish I took pics. I'll eventually get some pics and videos of my 5" FBD exhaust, DIY intake, and my now non-existent nerf bars Also right at the beginning of the winter after I got it, I bought 850 cca batteries to replace the 650 cca batteries... kinda wish I went 1000 cca, but I guess these will do. Also need a vid of my injectors from inside the wheel wells, because it sounds... funny. idk. lol
