I saw one of these threads on another forum, and thought it would be interesting to see some people's rides. I know we have a diesel Duramax somewhere

Kk here's the pics. Its a long box chevy 3500 duramax diesel. Capable of pulling 13 thousand pounds. To tow a camper we need to install a hitch insert because its a construction site hitch for BIG trailers.

"MADE IN JAPAN" "10/90"






















Yes, A/C does still work. Even though it's 18 years old, it carries a R-134A system. I had just recharged it a few weeks ago.

It has a small oil leak, and I'm aiming that on the valve cover, as the oil pan is 100% dry. Planning on buying a valve cover gasket next week and replacing it on the weekends.

I need to do the differential fluid, shocks, and it should be good to go. Brake work is on the hold for right now. I'm planning on replacing the cat with a FlowMonster (once I start to get good at welding).

Putting a flowmonster on that is like putting a little bikini on a 400 lb chick, just because it fits doesnt mean it looks good( or in the vans case, sounds good)

Kenny - AMAZING! I've always wanted a moped... 8000RPM?!

crazycart - Do you even know what a FlowMonster IS? Dang guys... do some research....

There's a difference between FLOWMASTER:



And a FLOWMONSTER:



Flowmaster makes exhaust mufflers, while Flowmonster makes performance high flow catalytic converters... Easy mistake, but honestly, do you really think I'd put a nice sound muffler on the van? (Fine... I would )

You didn't have to change it, I was just trying to say that you outdid me on that one!

For all I care, if it changes the sound... I don't care about the exterior, just the interior. Performance > Looks
