What kind of truck do you have and what mods...??

I'm getting more and more interested in the Ford Excursion diesel. I know a little about the diesel thing and how to take care of them. (I have and old school MB diesel) I don't know much about the newer electronically controlled diesels.
What kind of trucks do you guys have and what kind of mods? What kind of money did you spend and how much performance did you gain? Feel free to be specific.

well the mods are in the signature, but the
SCT was 430$
Airraid Drop in Filter was 70$
Silverline 409 SS Dual Exhaust was 600$
Autometer Carbon Series Gauges with triple pod was 300$
truck was dynoed 1 year ago with just SCT, and stock exhaust minus muffler and Cat at 394 RWHP and 732 RWTQ and we flashed it back to stock and she did 268rwhp and 475rwtq.
Truck last November ran a 14.88 at 89 MPH. This was with a really bad R/T and only a very slight boosted 4x4 launch at probably 1k rpms. Should have been at 2k rpms, but got excited. LOL So since it wasnt boosted the 60ft was slow at 2.18 but you get the idea
here is a video of the truck at the track.

Mods are in the sig. If ya' gotta ask, ya probably don't want to know. Just do what I did and put it all on a credit card and figure on paying it back when you're old and the truck is blowin'. ROFL

OK. That vid was pretty nice. Not bad for a several thousand pound machine.

What is SCT? Is it the electronic programmer? Sorry, I am new to the electronic stuff like I said. I am used the the "old school" stuff. Looking forward to getting my hands on an Excursion and doing a few mods.

My MB is a little better off than stock. All simple stuff really.
Originally a CA emissions car, I converted it to Federal specs.

I insalled a straight pipe, hooked up a manual boost controller, a homemade intake and installed a boost gauge.

As far as performance mods, that is all I have done. I had/have big plans of doing a propane injection before spring.

Thanks guys, keep the ideas coming.

yes the SCT is a Tuner, custom programmed by several different tuners across the country. Each tune is custom built and only works with your trucks certain PCM strategy.

It's the best out there I think. I started with an Edge Juice Platinum and with the NOS ran a 14.7. With the SCT, I ran a 14.8 WITHOUT the NOS. Since the last mods that incluse everything in my sig, I'm in the 12.2 to 12.3 range. That was with a low NOS bottle. It wasn't at a track so I don't have a time slip, but it was running against a guy that runs a consistent 12.3. Yeah, it's amazing what these things can do. Mine weighs in at 8010 pounds with 3/4 tank.
