I might be replacing my 03 duramax in the next year or two. I have 225,000 on it. I hate having to do the DEF thing though

Hey there Hog... good to see ya again. I'm actually excited to get back into my GM again, this time with alot more power and torque...just had to wait till my age to actually get into it (or afford it). Any known issues with 2014 Duramax you know about? tweeks, tricks..fun updates without throwing coal out the tailpipe?

Having a 10 lb/ft and 445 hp is not bad at all.

Actually, that sounds quite horrible. You could go 150MPH but it would take you a week to get there. :D
