moisture -- water..

we have started using a waterproofing ad-mix that is remarkable i had a few pits/slabs to construct 10 foot below grade in an area with a 3 foot water table--not a single damp spot in the concrete.

Havent had it any above 4 because i have heard of some issues with the tranny slipping and such but man I know what it does on 4 so 5, 6, and 7 must be pretty scary.
Tune #1 is 40hp...........tune #4 is 105hp. The Allison etc can handle another 100hp but beyond that you are asking for trouble.

I do a lot of around town driving and when the truck goes into the regen cycle it sucks. I think that I am going to delete the DPF. A buddy's family are dairy farmers and they won't buy the new diesel trucks because of the regen cycles. The exhaust gets so hot that it start a fire in the hay fields.

Just remove the exhaust and run a 4" from the downpipe back. You'll need a programmer or tune too.

Being these are work trucks and are subject to DOT inspections......be careful deleting / removing the emissions components. Removing the emissions components even on a passanger car is a federal offense

(I have a vehicle with no emissions components too)

Also, if it changes any computer codes, when you get emissions inspected - it may show up when they plug the thing in. I had some emissions related codes pop up on my little gas pick up. When I went to get it emissions tested, it failed on the spot. I called my buddy who's a GM mechanic, and he said "yeah i'll have to reset it and you'll have to drive it a few cycles before you go back because the computer will tell them that it was just reset". I didnt realize they could be aware of all that!

I'm just not married haha.

Diesels don't have emissions. By definition, ANYTHING (period) done to a vehicle in the great state of VA is illegal but obviously not enforced as such.

Yes, an exhaust will change the sound a lot. It's not obnoxious like loud pipes but you will hear a lot more turbo.
