  1. This is a link with several pictures to when I had the Farm Boy Performance 5" straight pipe exhaust system installed about 10 years ago. It is still in good condition and doing its job. Wow! 10 years already! Where does the time go??? https://tractorfarmandfamily.com/topic/555-5-inch-turbo-back-exhaust-install-on-my-2002-dodge-ram-cummins-diesel/
  2. Wow! One step forward and one step back. Sorry for the less than great medical news Mike. At least it appears that you are holding your own and overall doing somewhat better. One step at a time. One day at a time.
  3. Get rested up and some healing Mike. Hope all went well and the doc had the best possible news and outcome for you. Let us know we you are feeling better. Hang in there.
  4. I run a 5" Farm Boy Performance straight pipe exhaust. It is not bad under low boost conditions but getting up around 20 psi & above it lets you know its there.
  5. Best of luck Mike. We will have you in our prayers and asking for the best possible results.
  6. I was referring to the Pennzoil. The Amsoil MTF works well also. I am using it in my NV5600 mixed 50/50 with SAE 50 synthetic transmission oil.
  7. I never did either but the Redline oil works soooooooooo much better.
  8. Red Line 75W 80 synthetic is the best performing transmission oil I have tried by a long shot so far. I decided to use it in the wife's truck since it has a fussy 3rd gear synchronizer. It REALLY improved how the wife's truck shifts through the gears. The Amsoil MTF works well too but is a bit thinner in viscosity. I mixed the Amsoil MTF 50/50 with SAE 50 synthetic transmission oil in my truck which is not real cold weather friendly on the first start of the day but once warmed up or in warm weather works very well.
  9. Might this be of help? http://dodgeram.org/tech/dsl/FAQ/cold_wx.htm What were the temperatures when you attempted the starts when the WTS light illuminated? I believe the ECM receives temperature data from the IAT sensor? If it possibly receiving erroneous data, this may conceivably cause or contribute to this issue. Have you tried plugging in the block heater for several hours prior to starting to see if the WTS light still come on? I would at least verify everything supplying the ECM with data is functioning properly before looking into the ECM being the problem.
  10. Too late. Already happened. Just gotta deal with it and be thankful for the blessings the Lord brings our way.
  11. I'm gonna have to trade mark that! Hippy Badge!
  12. OK, I just got on the scale the wife has in her bathroom and it says 246 lbs. She tells me that it is not real accurate but I have a doctor's office scale out in my storage building and I verify it there. Plus I reserve the right to amend my weight because I think the wife has got on the scale too many times and broke it. LOL! Just kidding. Wow! I didn't realize that I was that heavy. I gotta work on that! I may be negatively affecting my fuel economy in my truck not to mention that is just not healthy nor smart. Now you have me watching the scale. Guess I need to be.
  13. Hahhhhhh!!!! I long for the days that I used to weight 171 lbs. as a very young man of 13 or 14 years old. I was over 200 lbs. when playing high school football. Prior to entering the Army at age 24 I could run a 4.4 40 yard dash, a 12 second 100 yard dash, was bench pressing 400 lbs., squatting 550 lbs., and dead lifting just under 600 lbs. I was 237 lbs. then. GONE are those days! The Army told me I was over weight the day I walked in their door. Go figure. When I stopped lifting, it was really tough to maintain height and weight but I managed to do it. I am falling short of the mark now. I need to lose about 25 lbs. at least and probably more. My beekeeping over 100 hives and my daily hikes to gather beehive data from the weight and temperature scales helps to keep me in half way decent shape but I need to cut back on the deserts and portion sizes my German wife who is an EXCELLENT cook puts before me at the table. I cut out alcohol and dipping Copenhagen both of which will just slowly kill you. I am still 237 lbs. but some of the young man's muscle has been replaced with "table muscle". Mike, maybe we need to challenge or push each other to lose that poundage. I can coach you on the Beekeeping but not so sure about losing the poundage.
  14. Yeah, I know what you mean, I get MRI's periodically for my issue and contrast sucks. I can smell it and taste it just as soon as they injected it and it feels weird until the circulatory system thins it out. Those are good goals. I am gonna be 61 years old real quick and I am 6'2" with the same issue. Seems like no matter what I do, I am not breaking that 230 lb. barrier. I get close but no cigar. A good diet and effective exercise on a regular basis I think is most important.
