Under the knife.

Trucks out of commission... finely getting the engine work done to her as well as some goodies. Didn't get a pic of the pile of parts it was a rush to get it to the builder with a change of shedual.



Now I didn't realize that pickup trucks were the hot commodity for rental vehicals... I couldn't find one for Friday in Brantford or Simcoe... so I ended up with a 2013 F150 from uhaul.... more for the klms and what really sucks no company perks rental agreement.

Had the truck for about 30min before I used it to haul a load to the scrap yard... lets say it tows very well for what I had on the trailer... lol

Hopefully that "small" stuff includes upgraded STC fitting, standpipes and dummy plugs, updated turbo feed and drain tubes. If you check out Strictly Diesel's site, they have some good products for us too. I bought a bunch of their stuff and gotta say they work good. Bought the regulated fuel return kit, coolant return lines, gauges, airdog fuel pump system and deep trans pan.
If you get a new exhaust system, the MBRP cool dual setup sounds awesome and looks better, imo.
