Hey fellas, Im kinda new around here.

Hey guys. Im Brandon. Im not gonna say im new here, because ive been on the forum before but i am a new member.

Heres a little about me and my Powerstroke...

Im 19, bout to be 20. Im not your typical 19 year old. While i was over on PSN, I was mistaken for a middle aged male. Middle aged meaning around 30. I hope all you guys come to realize that im not the steroetypical immature 19 year old. One of the most important things about me and my truck that everyone MUST know, I am NOT obsessed with smoke. Its alright in some places. Im a firm believer of the term "Smoke Responsibly". Now that thats outta the way, I have a 1996 Ford F350 7.3L Powerstroke with 210K miles on it and counting! She has a little problem starting. Shes cold blooded. Actually, it just needs glow plugs and a relay i believe. In the summer, its just fine.

All the mods done to it, performance wise, that i know about, are not much. Just a K&N Drop In oval air filter and a Hypertech Tuner. They were on the the truck when i bought it. I have my CB and antenna(s) on, but other than that and a toolbox its pretty stock... OH! The previous owner installed some fiberglass trim stuff. it looks like fender flares, but its got running boards too. I hate the way it looks, but being from Ohio they keep the salt off the body. Its starting to rust, and it bothers me real bad. Ill see if i got a picture of my truck so you can see what i mean. Im getting ready to do a downpipe and 4" side dump here soon so if anyone has any tips or suggestions please dont hesitate!

While im typing this novel (so it seems) i feel like i must mention that i plan on going to UNOH for Diesel Tech. Anyone had experience with this school or anything? Id sure like some first hand experience or feedback. You can read all about it on the web but of course UNOH is going to make themselves sound awesome. Im a little worried about the cost. TDDS is within 20 minutes of my house and i had thought about going there, but when i spoke with a guy i know who owns a diesel shop, he said hes gotten people from there before and they were clueless about how to work on newer stuff. He said what they teach people there is basic and its not worth the $18. A guy i work with was arguing with me today saying that $18 grand for diesel tech is cheap, he knows people who went to TDDS and its awesome, he said i should go there not some place thats 3 hours away. Yeah, well if im paying for it im gonna pay for something worth it. So if anyone has experience or anything, please let me know!

Thats really all i can think of right now, but if you have any questions please ask! Oh, and i work at Summit Racing Equipment btw!

Thanks and have a good day/night!

-Brandon

P.S. does anyone know where to find the sticker ive seen on a couple trucks that says "OHIO" but the I and H are the International Harvester logo? I got a pic if needed.

Thanks for the welcomes, guys. I really appreciate it! I really hope to learn a lot and meet some of my fellow strokers one day. I read on one post someone was considering a Meet and Greet at Quaker Steak in Canton Ohio... thats pretty close to me so hopefully it happens!

LOL that is because our chapter is all but dead. You don't have to do anything to be initiated.

Great. Now I just look like an idiot... Lol I guess people are too busy to make a couple posts and talk to others who live in the same state. Lol I'd love to bring a couple people back and make it an active forum.
