My close friend manages a fairly large Ford dealership and claims that Superduty sales are up 15% and that the Kentucky plant is working 3 shifts trying to keep up with demand.

Funny you say that. I ran into a hot shot driver Saturday at the boat/rv storage where I store my boat and he just finished removing the factory exhaust system and installed a tuners on two fairly new ram trucks. He said him and his driver where having nothing but emissions problems so he was forced to take matters in his own hands.

Ram just needs to go back to the solid lifters and higher tension rings and maybe some of their problems will be fixed.

My exhaust looks a lot cleaner and shiny er and covered in about 4 years of dust!
Truck runs great though!
Just to dispell the rvnet myth, I did actually add a resonator to the 5” straight pipe! Seriously...it was good at removing ear wax pulling a hill with a trailer.

I was hoping someone would bring this analogy up. [emoticon]

Now if Ford would just put the Cummins engine in their hd line that would be great. Should be easy because they own Cummins. [emoticon]
