    i turned it. i cant stand the way the big guy talks. this first episode was pretty lame, from what i saw all they did was nitrous, propane and something else on the cummins. i changed channels before they did any work on it.

    thats why im waiting to see what else they build before i make a judgement.

    extreme started with a bolt on build up, and it turned out to be a pretty good show, so who knows.

    His voice annoys the hell out of me. I hope he calms that WWF voice. The only voice worse is the mother in law yelling at the father in law. Like nails on a chalkboard.:eek1::eek::eek1:

    They did a little tribute to Stacey at the beginning that was OK.:waytogo:

    It was pretty lame for the first show.

    They did a brief overview of what they were going to do this season. Diesel tuning, a 350 in an s-10, and something with a jeep I believe. All things that Stacey has already done. I think I would rather watch reruns of Stacey.

    Funny...I just came from Stacey's site. I watched it today as well...I wasn't too terribly impressed...oh that voice, not sure if I can get used to that. Yep, same things Stacey has done, I'll definately be on the lookout for his new show.

    God, 350 in an s-10. I think even myself alone has done about 1000 of these (okay, maybe only 6), come on.

    No ****. You have a factory truck that makes 600+ ft lbs of torque. Wow that would be real hard to bolt on a few things and give it another 100 lbs of torque.

    If you want to impress me, build that same power out of a small block gas engine. Not on a blinged out dodge diesel.

    The big dude seems like one of those assholes who uses his size, tattoos, and a stupid voice to intimidate. I don't care for that kind of jackass. I'll watch a few more shows before I decide.
