Talking Hi there!

Hey boys! (I'm assuming it's mostly guys on here, sorry to any ladies). I'm new to this forum deal, live in Alberta, and bought my 2006 F350 a year ago as a university graduation present to myself. Haven't done anything to it yet except put in my gooseneck hitch but have lots of ideas! I'm sick of listening to my boyfriend talk about his truck and spending all his money on mods (he's huge into diesel performance), so I decided it's time I start doing some things to mine. I'd like to learn more about diesel performance (I usually just tune him out when he starts talking, but I know enough to get by) and get some tips on what to do and not do. Oh and I want to have a super hot truck, let's not forget that part
