New to the forum

Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum, and I thought I would introduce myself and my Ford. My truck is an '03 ccsb srw F250 lariat 6.0 and it's my first and only truck. I restore old Mercedes (I have around nine) so I'm a competent mechanic with old technology. My Ford, on the other hand is a computer filled confusion machine.
My trucks name is "Herb" as I bought him April twentieth, at 1620 hours, and the license plate starts out 420- it's also a green truck, so it fits. I have had my truck almost two years, and I am very loyal toward Powerstroke trucks as a whole now... Even if gauge is spelled "Check Gage" on the idiot light cluster. Herb has rapidly become a street sleeper farm truck as you will see in pictures and videos later. I had the beast on a dyno this summer and it made three pulls confirming 460hp and 1150lb-ft of torque which I enjoy frequently. My best 1/4 mile is 13.90 at 104mph in 2HI without brake torquing.

Time for "The List"
-studs, heads machined and cleaned, oil cooler update, egr delete, cat coolant with coolant filter
-Banks intake, exhaust, Technicooler intercooler, torque converter and IQ monitor
-Industrial injection 190cc injectors with driven diesel regulated return
-big single stage II turbo from Columbus Diesel Supply
-air dog II
-Snow performance water methanol with controller and in bed 7gal tank
-SCT tuner and custom tune
-Suncoast full race transmission 5r110
-Detroit locker diff, custom traction bars, rear air lift

I'm pretty proud of my truck. It was built by RPM offroad in Bristol Tennessee. I will be moving to Cave Creek Arizona in 7 days so I'll have to find a new high performance racing diesel shop in the north Phoenix area. I hope you guys have some suggestions on who to use. I (like all of us) have some more work planned for Herb. I would like to switch the turbo to a pair of twins from Industrial Injection. I would also like to swap the sun coast auto tranny for a beefed up ZF6 6speed manual if that is possible because I strongly prefer 3 pedals to 2.

Can you guys think of some more mods to improve my truck? I'm betting you can.

Burnout video, no bleach assistance.

Get a monitor man! Edge CS or CTS. Other than that 1150lb-ft of torque sounds nice

Herb the truck loves to smoke or "plume" as we call it. Finding hapless victims to powdercoat with soot from a stock looking truck is very good fun. There is a code of honor when it comes to blasting people with soot from the blackened scortched rectum of my truck though. No old people, but definitely people blathering on their cell phones with their windows down. Hehe.
