yeah i'm not sure where it is... like i said, the alarm was installed before i got the car, and unfortunetly I've never made the effort to figure out how it all works and where everything is installed.

ryan from enr is coming to do it all for me... he knows what he's doing haha

Don't know what I'd do without revscene... work would be so boring without it. Haha

As far as my alarm situation went... it ended up not being my alarm. My battery was practically dead... had just enough juice left to keep the alarm on, but not enough juice for me to use the keypad to enable it. So I got a new battery, and everything's back to normal. Thanks again to ryan for great work, like always. Like I keep saying... you need anything done, call him. 470-8073

whoa that was fun today.. took a cruise to check out north campus, and just as i was leavin there, goin around the corner... felt kinda weird like i hita pothole, then seemed normal again, so kept on driving back to klo, get there, some woman tells me my right rear tires flat..., so go to kal tire, end result:tires got about a pound of powdered rubber in it from the sidewall burning up and a hole in the tread, and they don't have any decent tires like those in stock, no one in town has any used......

No chance, Powerstroke Ownz all. Plus if you're comparing my '95 Diesel to a '01, the '01 should be better, but it's not

Trucks need torque at low RPM's, the Duramax doesn't hit peak until 300rpm, the 7.3L ford reaches peak around 2400 and they have the same torque numbers...Let's not get started on the numbers that the wee little Powerstroke 6.0L is producing in comparison

I can maintain conversation, and it's only loud at idle, as soon as you start going it gets quieter and then it starts whistling at you! Unfortunately the sound has side effects which shall remain nameless...

That's cuz they don't produce as much power as they should...I like 'em better than the Duramax, but not as much as Powerstroke
