  1. Sweet! Going to finally make it this time! I've got a buddy in town with a first gen. Yesterday he installed the gov spring, fuel pin, and timing plate. Now it won't start. Gets fuel to the injector, but still no go. Thinking timing plate. If anybody has any ideas please call me!!! He wanted to dyno his truck as well. Thanks, Lon 208-484-3088
  2. Sweet! That will give me time to get the truck dialed in and ready! Looking forward to it!!!

    I've got the projector headlights with DDM HID's! And they are amazing! The DDM kits are very well built kits for the price. In fact it still amazes me how good they are for the price. I bought the 35w, 5000k, and the just blow me away at how well I can see at night now!!! http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/DDM-HID-Kit-Slim-Ballast-35W-or-55W

    What combo for 600HP???

    I'm knocking on the door of 600. Trying to find that extra 15 hp. I've got the DDP3's and still back down the plate for temp relief. And the xmsn is in the neighborhood of $7500. Far more fun than rowing a boat and consistent. Took me seven years to get the tranny to that point though. The nice thing is if you spend money somewhere make sure they have good support. Lenny at Dynomite Diesel has helped me tune my truck to where it is and I can't thank them enough. Dave and Matt at Ultimate Transmission build one mean tranny with excellent support. For the amount of miles on the truck it still just amazes me how much better it keeps on getting. Lon

    California Fires

    Heres a link to some photos of the larger helicopters flying the fires down here. I'm on a helibase just outside King City, CA and they have a slurry tank set up here for them to dip out of. The Chinook is my favorite. When I worked for Columbia Helicopters in the engine shop I overhauled those engines. EACH engine puts out over 4000 horse power!!! The bucket they are using holds up to 3000 gallons of retardant or water!!! http://picasaweb.google.com/loncalhoun

I guess there are advantages to having a computer controlled truck!!! Congrats on making into the mag even if it does make you look like a nerd!!! LOL!!! What do you mean a cheesey smile Rob? That pretty normal from what I've seen....

    Firebird/Mopar Nationals

    Gates open at 9am Sunday. Racing will probably start around 12 to 1:00. Usually some very nice old iron shows up and always fun to show what some newer Cummins iron can do.

    Firebird/Mopar Nationals

    Yeah it was a little wet out there! Gates open at 8am and racing starts at 1pm. After the racing is over there will be a Night Fever to finish out the night. For all that are unfamiliar it is a no elimination four hour grudge match. I can usually make about six to eight passes during that time. Lon
