n00b here

Hola Everyone!

Just taking a second to say hello.

I have owned 3 Ford diesels in the past few years. First was a 99 F250 7.3 PSD,4x4, ex cab, SB. Second was a 04 CCSB, F250, 6.0L. I just picked up a 94 F250 4x4, 7.3L idi turbo, ex cab, long bed. None of them have had more than a programmer and DIY intake for mods. All for the use of towing my single car hauler for my toy.

I went through a divorce and had to sell the 04 but, things are better so I picked up the '94 and like it so far. It has 280k on the clock and runs strong. Everything seems to be tight. Needs an alignment and the brake pedal drops a ways before it grabs good. I think the shoes in the drums are shot.

I also have an '01 Lightning that I cherish. It's been down for 2 years going through some "changes". It's almost done now and I'm ready to get it back on the street, track, etc. Here's a link to it with the old setup:

Anyways, I've been reading the idi forums for a few hours and have learned quite a bit. If anyone has some pointers to these trucks, I'd like to hear them. I'm planning to do a DIY intake and exhaust in the near future. Going to take care of the cold start and alignment issues first though.


Later,
Jason
