I've done 2 complete exhaust systems this year laying under the truck, when I do the 6.0 I'll be standing Happy happy happy (blessed too)

Let's see...clutch in the 7.3 & F150, rear fuel tank in the F150, exhaust sys on the 6.0, change trans & transfer case oil in all 3 of them, differentials in all 3 of them, brake lines in the Cavalier,.Then I can get busy

Hauled 1000 gallons of sprayer water with it in one shot, moved a baler and a trailer load of straw and checked a couple irrigations...and quickly realized how much I need mudflaps on that new bed...

Just got back from a 6 day camping trip up too the Pigeon forge area, I can say that I put her through a workout traveling up the mountain's, never saw a transmission temp over 190* and the highest was just under 1200*. I will admit I've been wanting a 6.7L Powerstroke because a buddy of mine has a 2015 6.7L but after this trip I'm so proud of her

Filled mine up after my trip yesterday. I averaged 11.2 mpg, running 70-75 mph, 85*-90*, pulling a 24'GN, I only had about 2200lbs on it for the return trip so around 6500lb trailer gross. Interstate the whole way, it normally gets about 14mpg so I can live with 11 mpg working, the 4.10s are nice for taking off but tach around 2300 rpm running. Oil temps ran about 218*-220* with AC blasting. Overall I'm pretty happy the way it did, that was it's first good run (550 miles) pulling. I've pulled some way heavier loads of hay around here, but not down the Interstate.

I have one similar to that. As for what I did to my 7.3 today, I tested a customer returned Hydra chip on it and it doesnt work.

Moved mine about 10 ft so I could get my wife's TransAm out of the garage to replace its rear shocks. Then I moved it back.
I have to do some research on replacing the front struts on the TA. I know I need a spring compressor, but it's the mounting that has me "concerned."

Trucks been running great. Unfortunately the Ex still has a transmission issue. Wife said it was running sluggish. Used TorquePro to scan codes and it seems the OSS (or something associated with it) has messed up. Connection seemed solid so back to the shop it goes. Trying to get away for vacation in a few weeks, need a few weeks trouble free testing before we head out.
