Reworking the 6.4

Hey everyone, havn't been around over the hoildays, hopes everyone ate lots of turk. Anyways, I went to see my dealer about scoring one of those test trucks for a week, he said they're pushed back due to having to up the hp to exceed the new Dirtymax.

If this is true, I'm looking into my crystal ball and seeing another MY 2003 for 2007.

Cummins, Duramaxes, and Powerstrokes - some of each
Newest: 08 King Ranch - 8" Rize, 20" Monsters, 5" straight pipe, Spartan, Alien Patrol, etc.

They'll get it worked out just in time to change the engine again.

There are two of them in Del Rio, TX this week. We saw them at the TA truck stop Sunday on a private hauler gooseneck. The guy said they were tire test vehicles??? They looked a little weird because the front end looked like a 2006 but the hood had about a 2" rise in it. The insides had four big cables & plugs laying on the passenger seat. The exhaust was 4" through the cat and muffler out the back. Both of them were X-Cabs. The phone pic is crap but it was all I had at the time. He said they were going to Phoenix after this for something else. He had to layover in Del Rio and wasn't looking forward to it. Go Figure!

2008 Newmar Essex 525HP CAT w/mystery box
2010 Roush 427R Convertible
2009 F150 SCrew
2007 Dodge 5.9L "SmokdU"

They only look stock........:evil:

There was a feller in the store here the other day (he works for a truck rental shop) that was babbling about Ford having a Caterpillar option for 08....I figure he's FOS, but he seemed to be rather sure of himself..
With the emission changes coming down the pike for the next few years, it will be interesting to see what happens in the light truck market...
