New Here

Hello All,

Have found much great information on this site and finally decided to join the madness. I recently bought a 7.3l crewcab shortbed dually which has gotten me hooked on making it fast and strong. I drove a 2.3L ranger for 2 years before this so even having a stock F-350 has been a huge improvement already. So far I have installed K/N airfilter (though I have read that I probably shouldn't run this much longer), an Edge evolution, and I pulled the exhaust just under the cab with a turn down.

I will try to share my diesel experiences as best I can, though at 18, I doubt I'll be able inform anyone here too much they don't already know.

Thanks!

Kyle

Congrats on your new rig and welcome to the forum! I wish when I was your age I was smart enough and had the means to buy my stroke... But you live and learn and it sounds like you're on the right track. Yeah, I'd dump the K&N too, get a better brand like the AFE or just do a tymar DIY or ford AIS would be good as well for a 7.3L. Stick around, read up, ask questions... But I must warn you once the bug bites you're hooked! Everytime I turn around I'm trying to save up for my next mod, and I know I'm not the only one around here afflicted. Welcome to our addiction!

Unless I'm towing anything more than my dirtbike, I'm on level three, mainly due to the increased gas mileage.
