Got my first PSD!

Hey, i am new to owning a powerstroke diesel, since i just got rid of my 01 cummins for my 02 7.3. I love my truck and have to say that this sight is full of awesome information. I have a few questions to ask, and look forward to your replies.

Dodge is just a stepping stone to a Ford!!!!

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

Welcome, you got one of the last good diesel motors put in a Ford.

My wifes Aunt has a 01 Cummins and it's a dog. The front end was first serviced at 50K miles and it's had two tranny services by 85K miles. I got a chance to run stock to stock against the Cummins in the F250 and was a pretty close race, although at the time the Cummins had 50K miles and the F250 had 200k miles. A few months ago ran the X against the Cummins and same deal, pretty close race. At the time 75K miles on the Cummins and 160K miles on the Excursion.

By comparison the Excursion's front end was first worked on at 165K miles and the tranny has never been touched except to change to syn at 165K. The F250's front end was first worked on at 150K miles and a chip destroyed the original tranny by 83K miles, 239K on truck.
