  1. I think the Casey’s in North Dakota have already switched over to winter blend. They don’t have stickers on them though.

    Best batteries for our trucks

    Prorated means if you fall outside the three year replacement, they’ll give you a discount on a new battery as part of the warranty. I’m not sure what the percentages are, but then after 5 years you’re SOL and paying full price.

    Walmart has the one of the best warranties too
  4. Longest I’ve gone is 1500* for 4 minutes. Blew an intercooler boot going up a mountain and couldn’t pull over. 45 miles an hour in 4th gear to keep speed up 👌 and its still fine so egt’s are just a number right? Though I don’t really watch my EGT gauge at all anymore. Just glance at it occasionally.
  5. No. I don’t know what’s causing your lope. I have a lope as well. One cause is warmup mode on the quadzilla. The other was valves that were too tight. Yours could be a result of multiple reasons
  6. Yeah but then my IAT will be below 80*! Come on Mike! I have a 2000* egt gauge. I’ve had it up to 1800* before. Held that for almost 45 seconds. Probably won’t do that again.
  7. All part of having big injectors and a SO VP and an HO ecm. Doesn’t bother me anymore. Listening to it warm, I definitely have a valve that’s too loose. Can hear it in the cab even. Used to have them at 8 and 18, and it was ridiculously quiet then. But that caused a surging issue on return to idle.
  8. Yours sounds fine. Mine on the other hand, I think it’s a combination of low temperature, poor atomization, cold engine, what the valve lash is set at, and an angry VP https://youtu.be/UqNWGVKuVjQ

    VP44 testing

    Ha! Did it get a new HPOP after that one? Or was there a plug somewhere? Or did the dummy plugs/stand pipes fail?

    Well those two have HEUI injection systems that are a PITA if the IPR sensor screen gets plugged. 95% of the reason a 6.0 won’t start. If a 7.3 won’t start, it’s the cam position sensor 99% of the time

    What do you want to know. I’m fairly well versed in 7.3 and 6.0 speak (unfortunately on the second one)
  12. Guys I don’t need more EGTs!
  13. Ah damn, you’re right. The 6 speed always throws me when I’m moving fast. Carry on.
