Sorta New Guy

Been a member for a couple years, but finally decided to introduce myself. My name is Mike and I have a 2001 F350, 7.3 w/120,000 miles. I tow a race-car trailer (currently a 40' Featherlite), and a camper for weekends with the wife and three kids.
I have towed race-cars and such for 20+ years, mainly with gas engine everyday driver type trucks. Had one Diesel Dually years ago, Chevy 6.5 Turbo......was not very impressed. BUT, I absolutely LOVE this truck worlds apart from my early pre-duramax Chevy. It also helps that I really only drive the Superduty when I tow. I just got back from a camping trip in Lake George (about 250 miles from me), 90* heat, A/C blasting, and probably around a 8,000lb. load, up steep hills, locked on cruise @ 73mph......truck never broke a sweat.
Anyway, been reading the site for a while and looking to do some Turbo, Intercooler upgrades in the near future. THANKS!!
