Howdy and welcome to the .ORG!

There is a diesel engine builder in the Canton area. I'll ask a buddy of mine (lives out by edgewood) for the contact info. A good place for some parts is LMC Truck Parts: Chevy Chevrolet Blazer S10 GMC Jimmy S15 Ford Bronco Ranger Pickup Pick Up Accessories/Catalogs I know it says chevy / blazer etc..... there will be a link for Fords.
There are numerous directions to go as far as modding out. Usual starters are an open air element, open exhaust from the turbo back, etc.....

More will chime in over the next day or so. Post a picture of your truck when you get a chance. Also, keep an eye on the Texas members section, you'll see when we are meeting for lunch, dinner, or some other event. Also, we are a very family friendly group.
