My intro

Hello fellow PACNWer's, my name is Mike, and I'm new here. Back in Aug I picked up a 2005 F350 CC LB SRW. Traded in my 2007 F150 Lariat. This was my first diesel, but since I bought it I also have bought a 2013 TDI Jetta. Guess the diesel bug bit me. My other toy is a 2001 Audi S4, twin turbo 2.7L 6spd with quattro. Mildly built, but a lot of fun.

So a little about me, I work full time for the Oregon National Guard, doing property management and logistics for the 41IBCT. I've served for 15 years, and am a SSG/E6. Have yet to deploy, but am on the hook this next winter/spring time.

Married and two kids, hobbies are mostly automotive. I do all my own wrenching, and help other VW/Audi guys. I also do detail work on the side. I hope to learn a lot about PSD's, and maybe one day can offer help like a lot of you guys do. Much like my Audi, I've learned 6.0's are very picky on maintenance, and I have already be bitten by it.

Back a couple months ago, had one of my batteries fail, so I replaced both, but soon after my FICM died. So now I have a fresh rebuilt FICM, (thanks FICMREPAIR.COM) with a PHP altas 40 tune. Only mod I've done so far, besides audio inside the cab.

I don't plan on doing much, as I will be using the truck for hauling a car trailer and most likely a camper at some point. But I would like to get a custom tune and exhaust. Then most likely a level kit.

Sorry for being long winded (typing??) I hope to become a member, not sure just how many GTG's I could make, but I'll try.

Here's the only pic I have of my truck at them moment, from my phone the day I brought it home.

Thanks everyone,



2005 6.0 PSD CC LBW FX4, insight CTS, Atlas 40, Pioneer, Focal, JL Audio, much more to come..
2013 Jetta TDI, stock with 45mpg
2001 Audi S4, modded with 450hp and 18mpg.
