Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)



DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

We will not be asking you for donations or any kind of monetary payments. We will be asking for help in terms moderators and encouraging you to spread the word and add to our membership.

Darksider's Realm

A message board & forum for automotive builders, fabricators and customizers who think outside the box.

    Awesome. Looks like I made moderator in the big truck section, I think. You and I will likely have to work hand in hand, as diesel and big trucks go hand in hand. Hope to be able to use info you have, and info I have, and we can make the two sections as helpful as possible.

    i will help as much as possible, the basic trouble shooting of a diesel engine is pretty well the same, but there are some in depth things like computer junk and stuff which i really dont know a hole lot about, but i will do anything i can to help everyone out

    The biggest thing about Ford diesels, are the injector o-rings for the 94-02 P-Strokes. After that, it's the EGR coolers on the 6.0's. IDM's sometimes with the earlier P-Strokes, and FICM's on occasions for the 6.0's. It's all good. I'm actually the diesel mechanic at work, but favor the big trucks. I'll try and help you out as much ass possible. If I don't know something, you might, or vise versa, we hould be able to come up with the answers.

    Hi Folks,
    OK, now it's time for you diesel guys to earn your keep here. I need somome with some 6.0L PS experience. I want to pull the TC and I would be interested in learning about any helpful hints or tips. It looks like it will be a bear to get off.

    Later Folks...

    OK Folks,
    I found a guy over on the FTE that really knopws his stuff about the VGT's. I am now armed with enough info to start the removal and reconditioning of the VGT. When I start I will document the process as it progresses and hopefully it will be accompanied by input form this fellow if I can coax him over here. I'm just waiting to see if he will accept my invitation to join and contribute.

    Later Folks...
