No, but I believe they did some work on my friends Excursion. Are you thinking of having some work done there?

Sounds like you had a bad experience with Diesel Performance.

Compared to my old 97 K2500 5.7L the 05 F350 PSD 6.0L is just plain awesome. I'm still amazed at how the PSD pulls my camp trailer so easily down the freeway at 70 mph. The 5.7L at the same speed would be screaming and the transmission would hunt for gears.

I wanted to buy local but I found a better deal in Spokane. In fact my last three vehicles were purchased in Spokane. I guess the dealers around here are too proud.lol

Sounds like there should be a post in the 'Recommended' Thread

I started that one so we can help each other with recommendations on places to go or not.

Its not that I had a bad experience with them personally but its the fact that they dont have the foggiest clue on how to tune a PSD. they're cummins junkies, which is fine but to single out the PSD cause word for word from their mouths "Is ancient and wont make enough HP to hang with the others." Is BS. They dont have the an idea on whats the best bang for the buck. They only use superchip tuners. They told me my Dp-tuner was no good and that superchips was the way to go. i laughed myself outta the building when i heard that. I ran the dyno down there and they said my truck with all its mods only made 277hp. I took it to spokane and made 472hp. I have yet to approach DPU about this but im going to as they told me 7.3 PSD's would never make over 450hp. My rant for the day....

They're goo trucks. Any PSD is a good truck.

I feel ya. the locals are a joke. I buy outta E-burg or Moses-hole

It's one of the 'Sticky Threads' and titled 'Recommendations:Aftermarket/Used Parts '
