Noob from MA

Hey guys my name is Joe and i'm 18, i'm new to the board from MA just north of the Bean. I go to UTI in Norwood, I have owned mostly DSM's my entire time I had my license (2 1/2 years) and I owned a 87 Grand National (hence the user name). I currenty drive a GT35r 1997 Eagle Talon AWD and currently building a faster 1998 Mitsubishi GSX. I plan on getting rid of my Talon for a 99-03 Powerstroke so I can tow my GSX to Ohio for a DSM shootout and also use it as a daily driver. Thats why I signed here for some info. Let me know some pros/cons, problems, what to look for when I go to look at one. Thanks!

That appears to be a nice truck you need to pull the intake and make sure the compressor wheel is not all chewed up.
