got kilt!

last night this dodge was fooling around trying to cut in front of me so i hit it and was off like a rocket, the dodge started to fall behind then he took off went around me like i was standing still! I looked at my speedo and it was stuck on 90. Thats as fast as this truck goes! What a pizzer......the dodge was a half ton gasser even....so embarrassing......

is the 7.3 less likely to blow head gaskets than the 6.0? But you know, cummins dmax they all do the same when souped up so its not relly a defect

90mph even sounds slow. I've had 3 superduties and all of them have governed at 98mph... Pretty much any programmer will cancel the top speed limiter. If you're going to get a programmer I'd vote for the SCT Xcal3 with custom tunes from Innovative. You can stay mild with your tunes and have room to grow later on if you choose.

Yep, i think thats the only way to go. I think i will get the model that can double as a egt gauge as well. I would like to know what my egt is anyway. I here there is a new economy tune from innovitive that does save fuel.
thanks
