What did you do to your 7.3 Today?
 
Well I know the 6.4 guys have a thread like this but I've never seen one for us 7.3 guys, so I figured I would start one.

So like the title says what did you do to you 7.3 today? Maintenance, performance, washed the windows, whatever.


I tested the coolant and found that it was in need of a DCA additive in the coolant. So I went to the truck stop and got a pint of DCA and a 5" band clamp. Put about half the pint in the resivor and I'll see if its any better tomorow. As far as the band clamp goes, I finally got around to fixing my tip that was held on with 3 tack welds and got a good clean clamp on it.

So what did yall do?

I installed my Diamond Eye 5" Dual.. Was a bitc* and a half. I still can't find the proper hangers for each section... But, I red-necked it - so good enough!

What program are you running your chip on to get that kind of mileage?

I run it on 80hp Daily Driver 95% of the time. Occasionally I will crank it up to 100 or 120 for tooling around or passing... and it stays on "stock" until the oil temp starts to move. Otherwise.... just keep the RPM's under 2000 and try to stay off the interstate. Most driving is between 45-55.... but there's plenty of hills/mountains to climb around here. (CC is NOT my friend!) :hehe:
