Hand will be ok, hurts like hates right now, makes typing interesting too..

It's a friends E99 truck Evan. I sent the injectors in a month ago to Jim and he upgraded them to 140cc splits from the 120's. There isn't anything wrong with the beans tunes Talyn. I backed out of the shop and just touched the pedal and was spinning the tires on pavement. Took it out on the highway, it runs hard. He's extremely happy.

Cats are strange for sure. The doc said dog bites are not near as bad as cat bites though. Parents have cats too, and a few years ago dad had one freak out on him and bit him. His hand and arm swelled up terrible. Never did see that cat again. It's like it became possessed. I went where it was to shoot it, but couldn't find it.

Hey y'all! Were good its me and my buddy lol he kinda wants it... Not sure what we r gunna do yet but I'll be sure to let y'all know if Gretchen is for sale

It checked out good. It was in a small fire (not the recall but from beingin a dry field with hot exhaust) but other than done melted connectors it ran good. Not to mention it has a beefed Trans new steering real ball joints tie rods ends. And a new set of tires. All that done less than 400 miles ago. New tires were yesterday lol.
It had a weird lope on startup. We requested to be the first start of the day. It soothed out in like 5 to ten seconds. it drove great! I checked fins on turbo..good.
Checked coolant with strips. Good.
Fuel filter looked dirty.
The guy took us to a really popular steak house and picked up the tab! We took the Truck to napa after the meal and changed fuel filter, oil filter, oil and got two full tanks and put diesel keen in both. Currently 30 minutes down the road going 75 no issues.
The bad news...cruise control don't work and we got 15 and a half hours to go. Lol
I'm gunna stop and check thatnumber 18 fuse when we fill up. See if its an easy fix.
The heat actuator think is bad to. It blows hot air but won't switch off of defrost.
Oh and both tanks work no leaks...
CLEAN body and underside (compared to northern trucks lol)

I'll update later. With no hiccups we are expected how at 7 am tomorrow...

Darin, when we were in the Black Hills, we were walking across a field and my dog got a cactus stuck on her foot. She grabbed it off with her mouth and it was stuck there keeping her mouth open. We forced her mouth open and I grabbed it out of there and she bit me. I forgave her, lol.

Glenn, I don't blame the dog at all for biting me, heck, I just ran over her! I'd be a little mad/shocked/scared too! I do however blame the dumba$$ for getting ran over. That was all her, I just happened to be the one driving.
