Been Raul'd

It has been an interesting week. First my truck would not start in the morning. All of you that have had a GPR problem would understand. Especially if you did not know where to start. So I got on google and up came this site. I read the threads and went down to the truck (did not plug it in last night) and of course it did not start. Temp outside was 19 degrees, so I took my jumper cables and jumped it to the glow plug side for 40 seconds and bam it started. So I wish to thank all you guys for your input and especially to the guy who works for the snow plow place for the heads up on the Western 56131K relay. I read everything about the Stancor and Motorcraft and decided for the $51 for the Stancor plus shipping I could buy 4 of the Western (of which I bought 2, 1 for a back up). Found it locally for $14.20 with tax. You can get on the internet for $11.65 plus shipping from www.equipmentspecialistsinc.com. Now to the real cost for the relay.
While reading the threads (I was all over the site) I came upon a thread about chips and programmers etc. Boy, you guys hate everything except SCT or Tony Wildman. You make us who have the Edge Juice w/Attitude feel so inferior. Next thing I know I'm e-mailing back and forth with Raul and I end up ordering a TW chip and a AFE Stage II with the Pro Guard 7 element (always wanted one). Just let me say that Raul was extremely helpful.
I chose Raul over the other vendors because he was all over the site answering questions and helping guys (must not be married or has one very tolerant wife). So any body looking for mods I highly recommend Raul at Stealth Automotive. So in closing with this War and Peace Novel, the relay ended up costing me $900 so far.

Raul is a good guy. He helped me out also. My only advice is to run away now. This site is addicting.

Yeah he is. Was thinking about a trans pan and he says to go with a cooler first. Talks me into something less expensive. You have to love someone who does not just sell a bill of goods to make a sale.

Raul is good people! I bought my gauges from him, and would like to get a TW from him also but that has to wait for now. Yah I have a small addiction to this site too.

Welcome to the org. Raul is a good guy. I've never bought anything from him, but i would if i had the money. He helps people out on the site alot, and has helped me out and answered some of my questions a few times too. The addiction has started for you. Before long you will be wanting bigger injectors, turbo, etc.

I hear you man. Raul is one of the good guys who do whatever they can to ensure the customer's happy at the end of the day...

Also a 900 relay isn't so bad. I came here back in '06 looking to learn a little bit more about my truck. Mind you I had NO PLANS to modify anything at that point. 2 and a half years and thousands of dollars later here I am...

I guess you could say I have an addictive personality...
