I've installed 3 different diamond eye 4" on 7.3 trucks and they were a breeze. I don't think there would be a performance difference between brands. I'm just wondering if there is a performance...

Let's talk custom exhausts and EGT's

I'm sure this has probably been covered somewhere before but I've got it on my mind. I currently have the factory exhaust straight piped, no muffler or cat. At some point when funds allow, I will be...

If you got an OEM Ford oil cooler kit, it came with the o ring for that little hex head plug. I just did my oil cooler with an OEM oil cooler kit. There are two o rings that are very similar in size...

You need to get something to monitor live data and trouble codes so we can see exactly what's going on. Sounds like your mechanic was just throwing parts at it. I like the Torque Pro app for android...

Good advice here. I drove mine with a 25-40degrr delta for 3 months, even saw a 50 degree delta once. It was gamble every time and I'm lucky I won that gamble and my oil cooler didn't rupture. I was...
