Thanks! so far the throttle response is ALOT differant...it seems to rev up faster when downshifting and fall off RPMs slower when upshifting..the Jakes are much better then the cat. When Im going down the road the regen takes some getting used to because the turbo acts all weird. At highway speed the engine is quieter. It doesnt pull as good though, but with only 58k on it now I dont expect it to start pulling real good for awhile yet.

no idea, id have to ask around. there are about 200ish trucks in the fleet, the 2007s like i used to have are all getting turned in this year. they are the oldest trucks we have averaging about 250k miles. (I dont own it, its a company truck)

Nice who do you work for? Wish I got a new rig every few years without having to pay a dime! And its even got a chrome dash panel! My superduty didn't come with that! lol

the chrome on the dash I bought myself, it just kinda clips onto the gauges but makes a big differance in how the dash looks IMO. I work for a company called upstaging (www.upstaging.com)

thanks, and yea, its a lawrance system...that KW and Pete both use...only thing is its not a TRUCK ROUTE GPS...it has no truck routing, no weigh stations, etc etc...we havnt really figured out why they chose to use a car program in a truck,but it looks cool i guess..
