Re: Howdy

Check ur transmission fluid if a auto and flush ur system including the converter there should be a plug on the converter. The E4OD can be a good or bad transmission like everything else u treat it right it will treat u well.

U will wanna get gauges eventually to monitor ur engine and transmission vitals.

Get a 3inch downpipe cause the factory one super restrictive.
get a custom chip. Do NOT Buy a EDGE unless u wanna buy a transmission.

Wanna figure out ur max power do 120x2.3 that's the most fuel ur truck could have if factory injectors.

Also do not go around blowing smoke thinking ur cool or hot stuff cause ur not. It gives us diesel guys bad names. Also ur not gonna win a lot of races or go super fast as ur truck a big heavy brick .



Just giving the basics and trying to convince him that smoke isn't cool most will agree

1996 Ford F-250 7.3 Powerstroke Diesel 286k fully built E4OD with lock up switch Stage 1.5 180cc injectors BDP fuel system Tony tunes economy daily tow street extreme smoke 3in dp-6in homemade stack traction bars fog lights and a ok sound system. Nuff fuel for 408hp just need that new gen2WW

1989 chevy 3500 with 92 gm replaced 6.5 with a 97 NV4500 banks sidewinder rv air filter and open exhaust. mileage is ur guess down right now needs a ops.

I agree on the smoke part, but who says you can't go fast in an old truck? my truck scoots really well for being 17 years old with 230k miles, it runs with most of the new diesels here, and has outran numerous cars. But I also has bigger injectors, HPOP, chip, etc... It just doesn't corner worth a sh*t, but that's a given
