just wanted to make this my first post, and a little introduction about myself.
my name is Tyler, and i currently reside in Tennessee. Im a Diesel Tech at Landmark international here in Knoxville. after graduating Nashville Auto Diesel in october of 2008, i started my career working on European cars at a little private shop, and i finally got my opportunity to get into the diesel field like i always wanted. im no pro, but im learning.
Ive always had a passion for the Ford Powerstroke, and diesel engines in general. it all started with my uncles 96 PSD crew cab 4x4. my family on my moms side has always had fords. ive finally bought my dream truck, a 2004 F250 FX4 crew cab 6.0. ive been ragged pretty hard at work about buying a 6.0, but you know, its my money, and my truck. ever since my late grandfather purchased his 2003 lariat F350 CC 6.0 (that we use for hauling cattle, tractors, equipment, etc, with no issues besides a door switch going bad), ive been in love with a particular color, and it does hold some sentimental value.
so this is my Arizona Beige F250
its currently running a Rough country 4inch lift, a Bullet Proof Diesel oil cooler relocation kit, and the muffler has been removed. all of this was done before i purchased the truck. all i did was replace the 235/45/16 tires with a set of 315/75/16 Falken Wildpeak A/T's. the truck runs like a dream, shifts perfect, and fires up with barely turning the key. im ordering my EGR delete this week, and should have that installed soon. my biggest thing is programming. i have no desire to blow smoke and burn tires, but i need to atleast adjust tranny settings (for the tires) and monitor everything, such as EOT, EGT's, and ECT. im torn between the Edge Juice with Attitude CS and the Superchips Vivid Paq. the only thing i believe the Vivid lacks is expandability for EGT monitoring.
sorry for the long post! figured i better give some good info though.
