New to the forums, just saying hello.

Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I just purchased my first diesel this past week from a good friend of mine, and have found these forums very helpful on the very small issues that the truck has. Thanks for the very informative posts in the 7.3 section and the videos are a great asset to anyone. The truck is a 2001 F350 CC, LB, 4x4 Lariat. I am new to diesels, but far from new to performance vehicles. I work with one of the premier tunning shops here in the TN, and have built dozens if not hundreds of high performance cars from a range of manufacturers. I myself, as you might guess from my username, own a 2006 Subaru WRX STi time attack car that we are in the middle of rebuilding for next years season. I am hoping that the fabrication skills and the in house awd dyno will help me on my quest of learning and building a great diesel truck. Look forward to talking with you guys and learning from the professionals that seem to frequent this forum.

Dustin

Thanks guys. I will get some pictures up as soon as the weather clears up. It has been terrible here for the last week or so. I did speak with the guy I bought the truck from and it appears as if the turbo compressor wheel has been upgraded as well. Guess I will chaulk that up as a free mod. LOL, Now just to get the leaky up pipes handled.

Still waiting on some warmer weather to get some pictures of the trucks. In the meantime I figured I might post up some pictures of my other cars, and of some of the work we have done around the shop. I also picked up a spare 7.3 from a 97 model truck. Plans are to tear it down and rebuild it with a few upgrades

First, here is a picture of my daily driver that I just got rid before buying the truck. Car made a touch over 400whp on pump gas in a 106 degree dyno room. Tune was conservative and the car was a blast to drive.



Here is one of my personal fleet before we sold the Forester and WRX.



Here is one of the Time attack car when it was still being street driven.



A few from the engine build on the race car.

One of the old shop drag car. Car made 909whp back in 2009. It has a completely different setup for next year, we are also in the process of building another drag car based on the earlier lighter Impreza chassis.



Picture of the engine I built for the silver wagon I just sold.
