I think he learned his lesson about the too much power/boost thing. I bet it scare him sh1tless too when it happened. He's probably still cussing to this day and being very creative about it to.

Millions of miles have been driven on red dye without problems. EGR's on diesels are the problems.

If its a cab and chassis, its an -f-450 or 550, the 250's and 350's all come with beds. You can order an f-550 with a cummins.
I never did like that EGR Valve on my 2002 Freightliner Columbia I had at Swift Transportation. Damn thing stayed clogged. and if it F*cked up that is where you sat. Those ****** left me sitting on the side of the road in dangerouse areas. That White Semi you saw on TV when the D.C. sniper killed that bus driver was me. I saw it happen and dove in the sleeper and hit my head on the cabinet. I had a concushion as a result.

Yes move slower and keep your head from contacting anything hard.......oh you meant the block???? LOL A girdle will help, but when you get to those boost levels, its just pushing the design limit of the block to the ragged edge.

I laugh in the face of destruction...as long as it's not my money. Gotta pay to play, Navistar makes the Powerstrokes not IH.

Notice the "Navistarinternational" in the URL. SOmething tells me Navistar IS International and International IS Navistar. Sort've reminds me of that Ace Ventura movie, "Einhorn is FINkle! Finkle is Einhorn!" Lol.

The truck side, not the tractors, is what I was getting at, since someone posted IH.
