As far as me, I ran my own shop from age 13 to 20. (Not kidding.) I did everything from valve jobs to complete body and paint work. I had a few hundred loyal customers and worked every hour I could...

The way the "support" for tuning software works is a company like HPTuners has to basically reverse engineer the ECM to find the code for calibration data like timing tables, etc. They then have to...

Take a drive up to the SF Bay Area and I'll do it. You could even send me your ECM and I'll program it and send it back.

I looked at that and I'm not a fan. I don't like anything that's going to connect inline between modules on the data line. You have to take apart your dash and get to the back of the cluster to plug...

That's the company lawyer safe answer but it's wrong. They fit fine on both the E350 and E450 chassis, front and rear. Just make sure on the rears that you have the right kit for your rig because the...

Your tires were junk when they were new and they're also overloaded.

Ditch them all and replace with decent, preferably larger tires and you won't have anymore blown tires. My 27.7 Vegas was...

Wow. So in one day we have three people with three different Carefree slide topper failures. Like I said, I think they're poor design and a possible disaster waiting to happen.
