The New Guy

Hows it going. Just bought a 03 F-350 FX4 ex. cab with 78,000mi on it a few weeks ago off ebay. This is my first diesel truck, and dont know a lot about it. Been roaming around here for a while and just thought I would say whats up. So far since I got it I have put an SCT x3 from dj's on it, a bullydog intake, and a gauge pod with pricol gauges. So far so good. I spoke to the last owner of the truck and he told me it just got a ton of warrenty repairs within the past 10,000 miles including a new turbo, head gaskets with arp bolts, valve springs, mafs, and a radiator. The truck does have a leveling kit with nitto terra grappler 33's. So far I love this truck! Its powerful as hell. One thing that sucks is that even with the tuner on the economy setting I am getting about 11 mpg. But its worth it.

11 mpg's? Is it safe to say that you have a lead foot?

Yeah I didnt think my mpg would be that bad, but I cant resist but to bury the throttle when the light turns green with the sct.. I hope fuel prices will decline here soon or I wont be able to afford this thing. I have it on the looney setting right now but with the cold settling in im prob. just going to go with the eco tune with a cold fix.

Any of you guys/gals experiment with the sct X3 yet? What tunes do you like? So far I have tried Economy, Street w/cold fix, Street smoke, and looney Not a big fan of the street tune. Wasnt enough boost for city driving, and around in the hills. It was ok for highway though.
