I have done a lot of reading on the site since I became a member, but not any posting. I don't currently own a diesel truck, but drive and help maintain some farm tractors with my dad. Nothing beats the sound of a straight pipe diesel. We also have a 1965 grain truck with a 351ci V6. That is a beast to drive with no power steering. Also, I work at a power plant and help with some of the emergency diesel generator issues. Hopefully after school I will own one of these Duramax/Allison combinations.
