New Powerstroke Owner

Hello everyone. I recently bought a 2003 F350 with the 6.0L. It is my first truck. It will be my daily commuter and used for work. I've been lurking the forums for a few months and the amount of information here is overwhelming! The way each forum is structured makes finding information and answers to my (already answered) questions about mods/tuning, problems and fixes a snap.

A little about myself:
I'm an A&P mechanic with experience in building and testing turbine engines. Switched to working on general aviation aircraft for a couple of years, primarily the Luscombe Silvaire and a few Cessna 150's, 170's and 172's from time to time, and continue to work as a freelance A&P outside of my full time job.

Currently, I work for Virgin Galactic building and testing liquid bi-propellant rocket engines, explaining my screen name.

I don't plan on modifying my truck much more than an exhaust, intake and maybe a tuner. Keeping it as reliable as possible is important since this will be my primary mode of transportation until it warms up and I can ride the motorcycle more often.

I'm looking forward to posting in the forums and soaking up what knowledge I can here. Lots of great stuff from what I've seen so far.


- Karl
