I'm sure Adam will resign his position at Ford to be your personal trainer in order to get you b.p. down.

I don't need a job. plus I love TEXAS... now that that's out of the way. if FORD really gave two shits about their over priced products. they would have seminars around the country and listen to techs and give feed back on their findings. kinda like when the 6.0L hit the market. I make good money on gasoline or def contaminated fuel sys right before they trade them for a dodge
