New Member from "Real" Nor Cal

Hello all, my Name is Donald and I live in Garberville CA, about 4 hours north of San Francisco (that's why I put "Real" in the title). I have a 2004 Ford Excursion Eddie Bauer edition with 6.0 Powerstroke with 120k miles on it, I have installed the EGR Delete, upgraded Oil Cooler, Sinister Coolant Filter, 4" Turbo Back Diamond Eye Exhaust, PowerAid Intake and "Throttle Body Spacer" (Its what Poweraid calls them, even though it doesn't have an actual throttle body, its just a round spacer that installs in the boot closest to the lower intake manifold) and the Blue Spring kit, also updated the Oil Feed tube and Drain Tube for the turbo while I was in there. Should have done head studs as well but didn't have the extra cash for it, going to do those with new injectors in a few months. Energy Suspension Master Kit and Glowshift 3-in-1 Gauge to be installed this week. Thanks for taking a moment to read this and I love the site, it has great tips and tricks for installs and general information as well, Good job you guys!
