Replaced a half exhaust 3". Wife said it was so loud it sounded like a door was open on the P/S.

Sounds good to me!

So I made it over Afton mountain today. Had to drop it into 3rd but still made 60 mph all the way up. EGT’s topped out at 1150-1200, EOT hit 231 and tranny around 190. No overboost problems, pretty steady and made me proud as I passed the semis with flashers on. Made it safe to the campground and had some cold ones to celebrate!

I was sick of my seats getting red hot from the desert sun so had my 2 front windows tinted and chose to go with ceramic over metalized. Metalized was $90 and ceramic was $190. researched the differences and glad I went with the ceramic. Wow!

3:00 in the afternoon, 110* outside, deep blue skies with no clouds, sun visible through the drivers side window and literally could not feel heat on my arm while driving. Shortly after I got home and opened the door (can't roll the windows down for 4 days) to compare what it felt like opened and closed...Man, I'm a believer! My wife's car will be next especially since she has black leather.

Nice! How's ceramic supposed to hold up to scratching?

Not sure what kind of coating we got on my wifes Subaru but I feel the difference. We went just right at the limit statewise on everything and it made the car look nicer too. I do need to do something about the wheels though. The oem grey hub caps match even less now with the color scheme changing with window tint lol.

It supposedly makes the glass stronger so I'm going to guess, pretty well.

Mine had the windows tinted when I got it. It certainly affects visibility out of the side windows at night but it sure does help keep the inside cooler and the glare down during the day.

My truck had limo tent (5%) on the front windows when I got it, never had that dark of tint before. It is...... intimate at night to say the least. Love it during the day, game changer for sure. But, like you said , visibility at night can be rough , especially with pillar gauges in your face. I almost hit someone crossing a street in a non lit area cause I just plain didn't see him until I was part way through the turn and my lights caught him. In not well lit areas, I roll the driver Side down slightly if I can't see.

Both trucks got new Motorcraft fuel filters, the F-250 filter was dirtier than normal and had a fine copper looking dirt on the filter top and inside the bowl. Sprayed cleaner and got most of the bowl clean, but the stuff looks like Georgia dirt, but really fine feeling. Any ideas, truck just turned 300K had the tank dropped and cleaned at 225K. The filter on the left is the F-250 and the one on the right is the F-350 both changed every 10K.
