    Help Us Beat The Cheat! (Facebook People!)

    I'm sorry, it's for my buddy Kyle, to win a bunch of cool audio equiptment! He won all of the other brackets, and this is the final one. Oh well, this vote has been junked anyway, since the other team cheated and the company that is doing the give-away will not drop him from the competition.

    Who Can Do This To Their Explorer?? (WARNING LOTS OF PICS!!!)

    You are correct. Cali, and some other states smog test... Areas of CO do for sure... Here's Mike O in his 1000 hp twin turbo 7.3. http://videos.powerstrokenation.com/video/Swamps-400400s-7-3-Dyno Sorry, there's no sound, and it's a crappy video... But notice no smoke... And that's a...

    Who Can Do This To Their Explorer?? (WARNING LOTS OF PICS!!!)

    Well, for a basic rebuild you MAY be able to... But depending on what's going on, if a 7.3 quits running, it's most likely going to be something that's not related to rebuilding. Or something that's not rebuildable. A lot of things are going to have to be outsourced, and you're going to have...

    Who Can Do This To Their Explorer?? (WARNING LOTS OF PICS!!!)

    Awesome! I'd love a CRD Cherokee! Too bad they don't sell the Power Stroke Ranger in the states! Keep an eye on your Diesel Power magazines, I'm sure DeRanged will have a full write-up after TS next month! And if you get bored, come over to PowerStrokeNation.com, or DieselPowerMag.com, I'm a...

    It's a 6.0. Scary, I know, but it's built to the hilt, so it should be plenty strong.

    Nah, it's no big deal, I guess I'm just touchy... But no, I'm not looking for comments or criticism, I was just posting something for ya'lls enjoyment. I'm on this forum to try to learn a few things about the Explorer that I recently purchased, and decided that DeRanged was a cool little...

    OK... So find me a stock turbo car... And plug in a programmer, and get 100+hp.

    Who Can Do This To Their Explorer?? (WARNING LOTS OF PICS!!!)

    This post is the one that is ignorant, it's stigmas like this that are holding diesels back, and they are the fodder that feed the IGNORANT enviromentalists that are attacking diesel every day, so forgive me if I become up in arms over such an opinionated statemant that is stated as if it were a...

    I'll make sure to pass this along to Tim. I just wanted to remind you guys, I am NOT the owner, driver, or anything of this truck. I just think it's badass, and Tim's a really cool guy. He and all of the people that have helped him out deserve recognition. I am, however, gonna try to get...

    Who Can Do This To Their Explorer?? (WARNING LOTS OF PICS!!!)

    You're right. I guess there's two factors... The sites I frequent are really quick to get a lot of views... So I'm kinda "spoiled". And I have 4 other threads with 3 views a piece...

    Who Can Do This To Their Explorer?? (WARNING LOTS OF PICS!!!)

    Yeah, I could see how a 1000 rwhp, 20mpg, street legal, twin turbo, Ford Ranger could bore you... *yawn* I still don't understand the diesel haters... How can a reasonably easy, 400 hp, 8000#, 13 second 1/4, 20+ mpg, solid axle, 4x4 truck NOT fascinate you? I'm just trying to figure...

    Who Can Do This To Their Explorer?? (WARNING LOTS OF PICS!!!)

    Yeah, I guess I just figured with this being a Ranger/Explorer site it would be interesting. I won't make that mistake again... Sorry, I knew I forgot something! Thanks man! Not yet! But I'll keep you guys updated!

    That's pretty much in chronological order. I'll keep you guys updated!!! It's NOT mine! Sorry. I guess I shoulda said that earlier. It's Tim Scherer's. If anyone is into diesels, you can come sign up at www.PowerStrokeNation.com. Please use me as your referral if you do!!! I'm theSLEEPER...

    Will these rims fit? (Grand cherokee, need to know ASAP)

    I know it's not all the same, especially since I have a 2nd Gen, but I tried a set of Jeep Wrangler wheels from a 00. The studs line up, but the hub on my X was too large. This was a 4x4 Wrangler though...

    Stock these are decently fast!

    It's too bad that street racing is so common. I mean really, there's always some excuse... "I wasn't ready." "I couldn't catch traction." "The sun was in my eyes." LOL

    Stock these are decently fast!

    That's OK. I'm a vet too. So I can call BS on vets and you nor I have to feel bad about it. :salute: See, you're kinda like the guy in the background... (bad day:D)

    Custom Painted Grill, with pics :)

    Just for future referance, taking the grille off is extremely easy... Looks great! I just did mine, but it's still not finished.

    Stock these are decently fast!

    Everything about that build sounds like BS. My answers are in red. Someone is lying... Oh well, no big deal... What YEAR is this truck? Does it even really exist? Why do people feel the need to lie? I KNOW for a fact that if he told you that stuff, he's a liar. If the truck is...

    The shift pattern reads PN(OD)21, so I'm ASSuming 4 speed?

    Stock these are decently fast!

    If he had 6.XX gears, he would have NEVER ran a 13, or a 14, or a 15.... He'd have hit the rev limiter in top gear at 1/4 track. The story sounds a little outrageous... I know I'm a new guy here, but I'm not new to racing or diesels, I hate to call BS, but that's what it sounds like. I...

    Stock these are decently fast!

    OK, so 4300 we'll say, stripped on stockers with driver... How much hp do the 5.0's have from the factory? 150 rwhp? Makes sense if so, because that's around a 17 second 1/4. I wonder what it would take to get around 350 rwhp? Because THAT would be in the 12's. That's worth my time...
  35. T

    Stock these are decently fast!

    And if your buddy is spinning all 4 off of the line, he should be running around an 11 second 1/4. Notice my buddy Danny's run, NO tire spin... Did you notice his time? And that's not slicks on his truck either.
  36. T

    Stock these are decently fast!

    OK. I found a SC Ex on stock tires running mid to low 15's too. I was considering putting a carbed 302 in mine eventually, but man, these times are kinda stinky... How much do X's weigh?
  37. T

    Stock these are decently fast!

    So far, I've found (on youtube) a 5.0 X running a 10.85 1/8 mile. That's not too bad, but it's not quick by any means... Anyone ran the 1/4?

    Stock these are decently fast!

    If he has a Banks badge on it. It very well be a joke. Nitrous is VERY effective on diesels, it's just that we aren't able to use "wet" shots, so you can only burn what's there. If you have fuel, you can add nitrous until you lean it out, then you back it down again. What configuration is...

    Anyone Painted Their Grille Flat Black?
