I agree. Granted, you looked in the CA DMV laws, but that still didn't answer F834's question. Why swap an engines from basically identical trucks? That's like divorcing your wife to marry her...

Mysterious Rattle Coming From the Engine

In the last few weeks, I noticed a bazaar rattle coming from my 7.3. I've spent the last few nights poking things with a long screwdriver, listening with a long hose, and searching around. So far,...

To follow up, I ended up using the acoustical sealant. That was the only thing that worked.

After weeks without it sealing itself, I pulled the pipes and refitted them. And I did that again. ...

I'll definitely turn down the screw (1-2 flats) eventually. But it'd be nice to see if there are any numbers on how much more fuel usage there is per flat.
