    You seem a little too zealous, is there anything you'd like to confess?
     
    John Bertucci and Socal Xpress Thank this.

    Zealous about what? I had one done a year and a half ago and been trouble free since then. Probably get another one at about 250k.
     
    John Bertucci and Boondocker Thank this.

    I really liked the Malt-O-meal version of cheerios, called Tasty”O”s
    Sliced bananas in them. Usually had to eat a few Bowls to keep the whole banana, cereal and milk ratios correct.

    I’m with the pre egr bandwagon. Personally the N14 is my go to, but anything pre egr you can learn relatively quick and you’d be money ahead imo.

    This is a Friend of a Friends truck... He had PP install the Dorothy System and his first month of cleaning the canister out this is what was inside.... Just imagine all that crap going into the motor overtime...

    Well #### guys, I wanted to open up my options but it just doesn’t make any sense to buy an egr truck. I’ve been looking at the ddec iv and that’s what my heart tells me I need. I wrench on the marine 60 series at work and yea it’s pretty easy to work on. Just wanted to try and justify the possibility of having a newer one but all the electronics are scary I need to be a dang rocket surgeon to work on them computer problems.
