But then again, they (certain people) don't own an Excursion any longer.

Before you flame, yes certain items should be OEM and some items (proven in usage) are better as aftermarket.
Lol, I'm going to rep you for this one....

The OEM is best in my opinion for the starter whether the 6.0 or the 6.4 one.

I've never had one go bad in any of my ex's but I did replace the one on the 6.0 since the ex was at dealer for bulletproofing.

Driving the EX daily is fun. For some unknown reason I got the bird from some A-hole in a Honda, very over weight, smoking.....didnt do anything to deserve it. Just shows how dumb other people are. I also like to race the guys in the new F150's and roast them. They think they have something for me with that tiny V6 just because it has a turbo.....well, I have a turbo as well and you just got you **** busted!!! hahahaha 24 psi says buh-bye!!

Anyway, they totaled my wifes car. Im waiting for the call from the insurance company to start the bidding. I think they are in for a rude awakening of what that car is worth. Did some research, they better be ready.

Two things actually. The Mechman 250 and dat battery cable though... Northflex 1 gauge welding cable good for 220 amps. The GD wire loom I have isn't even big enough!



Guess since you can see the XD filter kit I can throw that in here as well.

I went last year and had a good time. I suggest camping and doing all the activities with the group and not just the event at the fairgrounds. We aren't going to be able to go to RRE this year because we are moving out west. But, maybe they will have RRW again!

Does anyone near the Delaware Memorial Bridge happen to have an interest in a stock 7.3 turbo? It's just sitting in my garage and don't want it to go to waste. It has 155k miles on it. Took it off to put a 38R on 2 months ago.

You should keep it as a back up, just in case.

I have a 38R on all my 7.3's and still have the OEM turbo's in my garage just in case, and the one from the Ex has been set up for towing, with a bigger output and a wicked wheel.

But, if you're dead-set on giving it away you need to post this in the "FREE" thread. Or I can move your above post over to that forum ifns you want.
