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.
