New Member in the "NC"

Hi everyone, I'm new fairly new to powerstroke diesels but I've been browsing the site for quite some time. I can't do the redundant questioning like most other people, I actually learned how to use the search function early on! Any ways, just picked up an '07 F350 Dually about 3 weeks ago and I'm looking to learn and ask some questions I couldn't find the answers to the easy way. I'm beyond appreciative of all of the information I've attained freely from this website and honored to join!
I'm live in Raleigh, NC

2007 F-350 Dually - Truck came studded already.
Mods I've done: 4" mbrp, SCT X3 w/Xtreme Street from IDP as a DD, Strategy rollback from IDP, IDP FICM TUNE, 55w HID H'LAMP AND FOG, B&W TURNOVER BALL, ALARM AND REMOTE START.

I have a ton of parts ready to go into her right now. Coolant filtration, oil cooler, hpop update, injector o-rings, dummy plugs, etc.
So much more to do!!!



Me fisting my new exhaust!! I guess I was a little too excited...

Thanks. I just started tearing her down this weekend to weld up my egr cooler, clean my intake, and check for the oil leak. I found some oil on the turbo pedestal so I'm guessing it may be the bottom turbo oring not seating or being too flattened out.
It also has a small leak at the valve cover which I found to be a valve cover bolt still inside the thread. I have to figure out how to take that out.
I'm happy though because while I was replacing all of my injector seals as a preventative maintenance(including the one on top that Ford doesn't sell), I found my dummy plugs and standpipes were updated, my hpop was replaced and stc updated, and my oil cooler was replaced as well. Now I just hope when I put it all back, no more black stains on the driveway..
