Hello all. My forum name is Luvrv8, real name is Karl. I live in So.Cal, a town called Camarillo. I have just bought a 05 C3500 duelly. I have owned several Chevy trucks but this is my first Chevy 1 ton. I have in the past have had 3 Ford duelly's (don't flame me please) and yesterday traded in my 02 2500HD 6.0 gas rig for the Duramax. I came here to gather info on what I just bought. I am a Heavy Equipment Mechanic employed by the state of California. Hobies are sprint cars and I crew chief 4 of them and have won a couple of championships. I also have a pro street Chevy LUV, it puts out 550 H.P. and on top of that I have 2 stages of NOS.
