i would try posting this question up in the HD or MD sections
https://www.thedieselgarage.com/forum...splay.php?f=64 << Heavy duty section
https://www.thedieselgarage.com/forum...splay.php?f=65 << Medium duty section
https://www.thedieselgarage.com/forum...play.php?f=177 << MD and HD mod/tech section

Try one of those three, they may be a little more helpful
