    The backup lights were purchased from a local parts store. They were in the truck area for big trucks. wesport

    LOL, yeah actually it is said more than once throughout all the video he took of my truck that night. Got a good chuckle listening to it.

    Mike I will figure out what brand they are and post back.

    Well actually there isn't much more than efi live which is only tuned to about 60 extra horse right now for winter. Truck does have a 4" downpipe back exhaust to a 5" cross over pipe in the box which then blows the exhaust up through 5" mitre cut stacks. Allison tranny has been removed and rebuilt with new clutches, transgo jr shift kit and triple disk stall converter. That is all there is for performance mods as of right now.

    The truck does need a set of lift pumps because when running the 1/8th mile it starves for fuel just before the top end of the track. Before doing the tranny it ran a 9.08 @ 79 MPH in the 1/8th. The following monday I blew the tranny in it which made me build the tranny sooner than later.

    Lots of things on the wish list but that is it so far. Exhaust is a large reason for the turbo being so loud I think. First time I've heard it, next time out I'm going to have a buddy run the truck so I can actually listen to it.

    I like the truck seeing how you use the truck to stack snow instead of the backhoe :confused: Just wondering if you guys ever got to close to the buildings with the boom of the backhoe?

    suprised theres not more done to it. my truck mods are all in my sig right now. Im about to add a straight pipe 5" exhaust to it as well as 150hp injectors and a programmer called the "smarty" which is somewhat similar to EFILive. Only thing is it adds a top of about 65hp and does all its work on the bottom end of the power band. Whats the performance setting you run with EFILive and about how many HP is it over stock?

    we wanted to do the plow on the cat but for us it makes more sense to use a box.

    Well I was doing the entrance so he went and started there. Once I got there my buddy figured he'd let another guy try the hoe, hadn't tried it previously so they kept pushing and I decided I'd try stacking some of it. Afterwards he came and piled it up more..

    I like the sound of a cummins str8 piped. This past summer while @ a event there was a Mustang dyno. I ended up with 345hp and 762ft lbs of torque @ the rear wheels.

    A stock LBZ dynoed @ 316rwhp and 526ftlb.

    As you can see my tune is more of a torque tune right now. Since that dyno run I've changed my tuning a little. Also I have to adjust some fuel pressure yet.

    Here we go, before I had stacks. http://rides.webshots.com/video/3069475910067906029pDHnMe?vhost=rides
