  1. I did own an LB7 for a while. Good truck all around. But like any high mileage vehicle, maintenance is key.
  2. LOL, I dare ya buddy..... There are plenty of 6.0's that are still running.....they live in an OASIS! (Ford Tech Joke)
  3. On a bone stock truck? I would have no issue. If it has been modded, I would adjust my offer accordingly. For the most part, the LB7's are bombproof. Cheaper and easier to fix than other model years (other than injectors) With Average maintenance, I would say it would be good to 500K Below average maintenance (they are an oil cooled motor technically) I would expect an oil cooler change out around the 400K mark. Possibly a set of injectors, and definitely a water pump. Find out the BB Price and bargain with it.
  4. Lol. I would be 'double tapping' the upshift button to try and fake out the computer.... Or be driving it like I stole it. Hmmm decisions decisions. I think you need a 6 speed Russ. In a VETTE!!!! Pull off the top when you want to. Hard top when you don't. 30+ us mpg on the interstates, 400hp, whats not to like?
  5. Next year I will make plans to attend That said, we have all had smoked rice (insert w h y here) and had a good time doing it. Trouble is, technology (electronics and bolt ons) can take even the most pedestrian diesel out beyond 500rwhp. And with great power, respect for it's use/misuse has to be used. Dangerous driving has a threashold. It IS fun and games until someone gets hurt. I believe the best option is to tell participants exactly that. Rollin' Coal is one thing, being a participant in a MVA is another issue. If we don't police our own events, and be somewhat responsible, they will cease to exist because of liability. It can be fun and loose, but just a tiny bit of restraint can go a long way. It is for a good cause, but NO organization worth their salt would dare take any donation from a group that gets termed dangerous. My .02
  6. One thing that ALL BBB forums are experiencing is a drop in volume because of social media sites like Facebook. The reality is, before facebook etc, BBB forums all had a lot more traffic
  7. Even the New Gaurd becomes Old Gaurd when enough time passes. That said, we do have a very tight-knit group of people on here. While not boasting the volume of members as other forums, I am sure that we all know 80% of the active members on here. What we have to offer is a slightly different flavor than other diesel sites. And I will admit, that for a time, I too wanted more active members on here. With a few gray hairs later, I realized that one reason we don't is the lack of drama here (compared to other places) I am glad we have this site, i enjoy all the members here, and their support has been great over the years. Do we have room for improvement? You Bet! Are we having as many 'issues' as other sites? No. If there is anything specific we can add Ben, let us know:) we act for the membership
  8. Welcome to the NWBOMBERS! I had a Duramax for quite a while. Great trucks, and with a few tasteful mods, they perform very well.
  9. I have the 62/14 in my 6 speed 2006. Great Turbo. 14cm housing increases lag slightly but has much better drive pressures (and 200f reduction in egts over the 12 cm housing. Truck is right at the 500hp range, and the turbo is gated to 'crack' at 42 psig and is fully open at 44 Psig. If you only plan to run +40hp more fuelling over stock, get the 12cm housing. If you plan on any more than that, get the 14cm housing.
  10. Lol. Peta drone violates US FAA laws and the drone's operator isnt charged? WTF?

  13. If you have permission to hunt the land. And you have not given permission to be videotaped, it's a matter of privacy. Then again, if two are out hunting, the buddy system works well.
  14. 3.5" magnums with 00 ought to work... Propellors don't react well to 'em
  15. LLY Duramaxes seem to wake up some ponies and economy with added timing. PPE worked very well on my old truck, as did the Juice with attitude. I could eke out 20 with them on if I drove carefully. Stock was about 17-17.5. There is just too much weight to get better unless you were to use EFI live and advance the timing, and cut back the fuel.
  16. Better not fly near me.... I treat UFO's with extreme prejudice.
  17. Dave, I can paint. I have all the tools from a recent paintjob I did at my place. All HVLP stuff with extended capacity hopper. All I need to do is clean out the paint tray and get you a new roller.
  18. Well, they plan to send me to Calgary for the training (at their expense) for both sets. I feel like the stupid kid in the school for smart kids. so much to learn, and in the last week I feel so damned inadequate. Learn Learn Learn. Sheesh. I am used to being the instructor. This role reversal is a royal pita.
  19. Lol. Out of 470 DC's guess who can fully seat a -8 hose double braid onto a -8 JIC fitting... By hand... And remove it? The GATES rep was astounded. He's never seen anyone do that before. And then remove it! X-training on 2 jobs and 2 different computer systems ecos and cos.... And showing off a few computer skills to the boss who needed a hand. April is pneumatics training, control surfaces, linears and switching plc's/ pumps and conditioning components. May is to be hydraulics (simple, lines, non-motive) cylinders lines fittings, systems based in accumulator theory. I think they plan to keep me around.
  20. Great people. Say hello to them for me.
  21. Got Juice?

    Smoked!

    Wicked looking headlights!
  22. Yes, 4.30's and fuel economy go together like peanut butter and vodka.
