I am so glad I live in the South, that crappy salt ruins so many nice cars.

Hey Bently_Coop,

RobRoss is correct. Since IMASAP is suggesting I stiff the TaxMan and instead spend the cash on the Rhino, I figure my build may need to include some Armor for when they come-a-lookin'.

Got back in my 18 wheel today for the first time in a month and wow I have really been missing that turbo whistle. I miss the whistle my 01 Ex had. This 02 that I have now has a Banks ram air system in now but it muffled the whistle and creates a really odd sucking /whoosh noise. I'm looking forward to putting in the billet wheel from riffraff diesel to see if I can recover some of that whistle. I'm kinda torn as to whether I want to swap to a different intake or keep this one I have in the name of getting my whistle back

Not exactly perfect but it will pass inspection!


However we hit another snag... Forgot a jack stand under the truck and seriously bent the tie rod when backing the truck off the stands. That's tonight's new project
