Thread: New Member from Washington

  1. #1

    Default New Member from Washington

    Hello!
    I'm a new member, long time dakota owner and have joined because I'm in the process of modding my truck. by the end of the year, I plan to dust off the supercharger and get it in as well as run my ms3x (the current hold up). I look forward to being a part of the community, everything my experiences, and lending a helping hand whenever I can!

    Welcome to the forum!
    I've spent most of my money on women, booze, and my truck. The rest of the money was wasted!

    Smartphones are a menace to society and are creating a zombie apocalypse!

    If you don't like me on the phone get off the road!

    Get a tune from Ryan Hogan, FRP Tuning, he is a vendor on here.
    That hemifever tune will be garbage and be careful it doesn't fuel wash your rings.
    Get rid of the cheap headers unless you are using them to replace cracked stock manifolds.
    It has been dyno proven the cheap shorty headers give ZERO performance gain.

    The plan is to work with FRP once the MS3 is in and operational for sure. A set of long tubes are in my future, just not right now. Any recomendations? And yes, the old manifold had a pretty sizeable hole in it. I'm not sure if it was a bad casting or if something got up in there. That truck looks sick by the way!

    It's an SLT that is in transformation lol. I wanted a stick shift, a np 242 x-fer case and a 5.9, but I couldn't get that so i decided it'd be better to build it. Definitely prepped for my wallet to cry, it's already getting a little teary eyed, but that's part of the fun right? I've got accounts on a few other forums for the 4wd stuff, I figured there'd be no better place to ask about the 5.9 and go fast stuff than here!
