Thanks for the welcome Gentlemen. Proud to be a part of what seems to be the most knowledgeable forum on the web. A little about my truck:

2003 PSD 6.0
Edge Performance w/ Attitude Programer
RBP custom 5" straight exhaust all the way back. Dumps out over rear axle. Pretty unique.
Airrade intake
Custom built 19" lift w/dual King airshocks front and rear
20" Helo Powder Coated BLK rims
44" Continental's
Full Leather w/ Carbon Fiber accents on the interior.
Harley Davidson edition front clip.

I guess that is about it..................for now!

I'd love to hear that 5" straight pipe - I'll bet it sounds mean.

It is pretty wicked. The airrade gives it a jet engine whistle until about 2000 RPM when the turbo really kicks it up and then it sounds like a 351 Cleveland with turbo mufflers. Not sure if you've heard that before but, it is a wonderful sound.

On another note Steve,

What is this I hear about diesels having to be smogged starting in 2010? I have heard but, have not researched at all, that it will apply to all year model diesels and not just new ones. Do you know anything about this? Obviously that would be a problem for me. LOL

So far it will only be for vehicles < 8,500 GVW. That excludes Superduties. The 1/2 ton diesels we expect in 2010 will have to be smog tested.

looks like boats need smog now too?

Prohibits the DMV from registering vessels with stern drive or inboard engines manufactured after January 1, 2008, if they do not meet emissions regulations.

They have to meet emissions regulations, but that does not mean they will be subject to owner smog checks. I see that as a motor manufacturer responsibility, only.

Hey Pop,
It is a champ. I love it. The mods have made a pretty big performance difference and the truck is really well done. No complaints at all.

Why yes, I'm most familiar with that wonderful, incredible, spine-tingling sound! Wish I still had that Mach 1....
