4" Exhaust

I finally got around to installing an exhaust on my truck. My wife bought me a 4" aluminized MBRP exhaust for my birthday and I installed it yesterday. Truck sounds great. I love the way the whistle from the tubro sounds as I'm just crusing at low speed - and the roar when I step on the pedal is perfect. The install took me about 3 hours.

Next up - DP tuner if I can get my wife to throw that under the tree for Christmas

Hah, I forgot to post an update when I got my F6 last year! I've been running the 80e and 60 tow for a while now. Took the trailer out with the tuner for the first time a couple weeks ago. I love it! Climbed up Blewett pass in the Cascades so much better than last year.

Good brakes are nice to have

My brakes were far from terrible, but since I'm the second owner and I didn't know how long it had been since they had been replaced I wanted to upgrade before they became a problem. I had noticed some odd surging while under heavy braking and thought the rotors might be a little warped.

Glad I did this project. The new brakes are awesome. Stops are much, much smoother. I should have done this a year ago.

On edit: few more details on the job - I added Power Slot Cryo rotors and Hawk LTS pads. The driver side brackets were in great shape and only needed a little cleaning. Had to replace the passenger side bracket and slide pins because it had one pin frozen solid in the bore. Got great service from Parts Guy Ed's old employer - Horizon Ford in Tukwila, Wa. Guzzles write-up was helpful for my first time replacing the brake pads on this truck. Only thing. Would add is that the rotors can be tough to pop off if they have been on a while. My driver side need a lot of coaxing with a block of wood and a mallet before it broke loose.

Did you do the redesigned caliper pins? If not, I would suggest doing them. Will help the pads wear evenly.

Yes, I did those as part of this project. The old ones were doing okay on the driver's side, but one had rusted in place on the passenger side.

No hijack, just a question. What is the difference in the caliper pins? I have never heard of a redesigned pin.

Did Gooch's radiator flush and replaced with Shell Rotella ELC at 165,500 miles.

Firefighter, sorry I missed your post. I'm not sure what the differences are, but I think they changed it to make them less prone to freezing up.

A couple weeks ago I went to the tech day at woodnthing's place up in Lake Steven's and we installed an FRX and did the hutch and harpoon mods. My truck had been getting pretty loud before that and has really smoothed out with these changes. Went for a drive up to Snoqualmie pass today and it was purring and just running great overall. Thanks for all the help guys. Might just bring the '69 Ranger to the next tech day if the 7.3 keeps humming along so nicely.
