Wichita really is more of a cummins/maxipad town. Not sure why, but they'll come around to the good/sane side.

They do try to mess with me when I'm there but I don't even bother. I don't even know what they've got, but my money is on them. I'm in a manual early 99 7.3 with nothing but tunes...you've got me

I'll get the turbo and sticks someday though, then maybe I'll try em.

Ohh, and just cause its my duty, yall be sure to join up in the TAPS chapter if you haven't. Its your local Kansas chapter of the org PM or post up if you have any questions

Well fast is great in racing, but, I'd rather be able to confidently hook up to any trailer that my truck can handle and know that it's got the grunt to get'er going safely and confidently,... I'll leave the racing to the city kids and THEIR trucks. Besides, if I wanted to do that I'd go get a ZX-10 or an RC-51 and blow just about any 4-wheeled vehicle off the road w/o shifting into 3rd.

My truck isn't for racing, its for towing/work. If I wanted to race, I'd buy a capable car and take it to the track. Instead I needed a truck capable of towing and hauling, so I bought it.

There is something about the city guys, especially dudges that seem to think the only way to prove the need the truck they've got is to pull the honda pass (fly by you going way faster.) Ok, so your truck is faster than mine if I'm going 70 and your going 85. Wanna pickle for it?

I've been on the highway twice when a dodge flew past me, slowed down, then wanted to race at highway speeds. No thanks bud, I know your faster than me, whats the point in racing? One time I was towing and he was empty, wtf.

Pretty Much. I'd love to have a dual axle tractor and a 47-53' flatbed to haul hay and firewood with, but until then, my Powerstoke will have to do that (with a slightly smaller trailer of course,...). I am thinking of doing a cummins swap on my '01 F-350 SW 2wd c/c though,... The 5.4 v-8 is kind of a dog and the mileage is horrible. For the money I'd have to spend (doing it myself) I think that a mechanically fuel inj. Cummins would be the easiest, most reliable and straight forward route. I do love the sound of a Powerstroke but, a 5.9/ZF5 or ZF6 combo would make for a dead reliable, simple tow rig.
