Cool Noob in Texas

Howdy everyone!

Im new to the site and to the powerstroke, when I was growing up I helped my dad rebuild his 86 idi from the ground up. it started as a 86 with a california dually kit and bank sidewinder. when we were all done it had bigger injectors a modified injector pump custom e fuel set up with a 115gal fuel tank in the bed that would fil the tanks on the fly ( that was so nice) 3 transmission and 1 rear end swap. Not to mention hours of cleaning polishing re runing wires making it perfect. I was maybe 10-12 during most of that work and I was hooked I knew I wanted a ford diesel, well last month my wife made my dream come true surprising me with a 1996 f250 crew cab 5 speed powerstroke for Vday( I know im a lucky dog and no she doesnt have a sister) Ive already put a straight pipe and diy intake and boost gauge on it. About to do a mbrp down pipe egt gauge and a ts 5 chip. then im gonna drive it for a year and go stage 1 at tax time next year.

Anyway I look forward to making new friends, learning from ya'll and hopefully meeting a few other local osb people!
