Here is my Ford F250 7.3L Power Stroke. So far, I've upgraded my oil delivery with the installation of a T-500 oil pump and increased my fuel with Full Force Diesel 250cc injectors and 100 percent nozzles. I've also put in an AirDog 150 and reinforced my engine with ARP head studs. I’m running a Garrett GTP 38R turbo and a DP Turner F6. When I started upgrading everything, I wanted to make sure my transmission and engine could handle it, so I got a stage 2 transmission rebuild and put in forged rods, de-lipped my pistons and installed an overall engine rebuild kit from Outlaw Diesel Performance. I also put in an Outlaw fuel return, and a new intake and exhaust system. My Power Stroke is my daily driver as well as a puller with United Truck and Tractor Pullers in the 2.6 class.

My 1996 Dodge 3500 has been running strong since I bought it and with 270,000 miles, that's saying a lot about for my stock engine. So far, the only thing I've really had to do was replace the stock intake filter with one from K&N. I've also upgraded the manifold with a Banks twin ram intake manifold and to keep everything moving smoothly I installed a BD steering stabilizer. I've had this truck for a while and it's helped me do everything from hauling to grocery shopping.

This is my 2006 LBZ Duramax. I really haven't had to do a whole lot of modding because mostly everything on my truck is still running as strong as the day I bought it. Most of the work I've done has been to make it look great and change some of the aspects of its drivability. Altogether I've installed a 6-inch lift, and I then changed the wheels to 20-inch MKW Wheels wrapped with 35-inch Toyo MTs. On the performance specific side, I put in an Edge Juice with attitude chip, aFe cold air intake and a 5-inch down pipe back exhaust. Like I said my Duramax runs powerfully and comfortably, so I haven't had to spend a lot on repairs or upgrades.
