Smile Hello from Katy, Texas. 16 year old.

Hey hows it goin? Im Taylor. I just got my truck on the 11th and get my lisence tomorrow.

It is a 2006 white f-250 with 20,000 miles. 6 inch suspension lift with 35" bald tires that only measure 32.5" right now. I got a superchip for it yesterday and plan to get my 4 inch turbo back exhaust this week so I can run the chip on the high setting. I also will be getting a new air filter from k&n. I will be buying mickey thompson all terrains soon as well. It does well in the dry dirt for now, there isn't too much mud around here but it goes over just about anything.

Here are a few pics.






Thanks for looking.

Nice truck

And I may as well be the first to say - "YOU NEED AN SCT WITH CUSTOM TUNES FOR THAT 6.0!!!" Oh, and you might want to hold off on that K&N too. The stock intake flows FINE, and the K&N's are known for poor filtering on TC diesels (Dusting your turbo). If you're dead set on getting an intake look at AFE or S&B...

Lucky you man. You take care of that baby! Don't forget gauges if you're gonna run that on the highest setting. And you'll find that most people on here will NOT recommend a K&N. That is a brand new beautiful truck. I'd shy away from an intake that has ruined so many turbos and engines bud. Seriously. I would be putting an AFE or S&B intake (the best) rather than a K&N (the worst) on that gem, considering it's a brand new truck almost!

to Powerstroke.org!

Oh and DEFINATELY look at an SCT. Exhaust, intake, (don't forget gauges!!!), SCT, and you're at 400hp give or take, you'll need headstuds probably too.

Old Truck: 00 F350 XLT DRW: basic first few mods. S&B, 4" straight pipe, gauges, CCV, EBPV and Wastegate line deletes, LED Sills, sweet custom headlights, smoked cab lights, Ventshades, Tint.
Traded in at 196k miles.

"Brand Newish" Truck: 02 Chevy S10 2.2L 5sp. Reg cab 4x2. Badass custom made shifter, foglights, 20% tint, AVS Vent-shades, Stock Intake mods, Electric Fan conversion .
~ 95k miles.

Yeah, my dad runs a SCT and K&N in his and it runs great. Are you saying not to get the SCT? Because the SCT is the one I put in it yesterday and it does great at 400 horsepower.

Thanks for the compliments as well as the info on the K&N. Ya'll probably just saved me alot of money.

I will probably get the AFE then. I know someone who runs one of them and loves it.

Yeah we met at an event in Houston (NHRDA or DHRA?). I remember seeing your truck at the school when we would pick Krystal up. It's very nice by the way.
