Thanks guys . On another note, someone made an un-authorized mod to my Dodge while it was at the shop, they stole the light bar with 4 forward facing 6" (i think) chrome housing lights and 2 rear facing 4" chrome lights.

Sorry to hear about the mods to dodge. On another note, you can look forward to 14mpg in the 6L (ahem)powerstroke. How many km on it? At least you have the coil front end unlike the my bro's with leafs up front. They turn much better with coils.

The milage is getting up there for an 05' ^

Replaced the lower balljoints and new swaybar bushings. Still a little bit of noise in the front so looks as if I may need to replace the uppers also.

232km on an '05 isnt that crazy. if it was bought in '04 then thats 4yrs, sure its 80k.yr but for someone that takes alot of road trips it doesnt take to long. I have put on like 30k on my truck and got in march i think, and the first few months i barely drove was working a ton. since all the stuff has been done its probably a northern/patch truck or toy hauler/family vechile

So I ordered some gaskets for the quad today for when I do a P&P. Also ordered a powercommander and "special" K&N. Still deciding which cam I am going to order but by then I should have everything else for when that shows up.

Once everything is in it will be heading to the dyno, haha.

So power commander 3 and new intake setup are in. Going to have fun reading on tuning tomo. When I get a cam it will be off for dyno tuning. All this money to gain lil hp, freakin rediculous. $700+dyno for 9hp, maybe 10hp. But then my quad should haul some serious ass.

Ya but you have more cc's and more hp to start with. You gained like 10% peak but rideability probably went thru the roof. The stock airbox on my quad is SUPER restrictive pulling the lid and tricking the map sensor gains like 5hp. But after cam and dynoing it hp becomes very expensive. Guys with stroker big bore setups big valves big porting big cams make 62-64hp so I will be very happy with my low-mid 50 hp set up.

the problem: dull, pitted, faded, scratched, yellowed, and oxidized headlights with 1 burnt out bulb.

the fix: wet sanded with 600, 1000 and 2000 grit. followed by rubbing compound. followed by clear plastic polish. add a pair of silverstar ultra bulbs

the result: glorious headlight brightness!
