This is probably one of the last videos where the audio is all over the place. Was recording the voiceover at a Starbucks on my Mac and for some reason the laptop was picking up coffee counter/register sounds much better than my own voice. The new cam I mentioned before has already arrived in my mail box back in Canada. I look forward to testing it with an external mike when I get back home from Oklahoma next week. Will be able to use it both as dash cam and body/head cam.

yeah, the external mike definitely makes a better audio when recording from the truck. i installed a panasonic cam on the shelf above the sleeper behind me, using a a special mount i bought at B&H Photo. the mount works great but when the cam is heavy, it shakes a bit when the truck is moving. a smaller cam would make a better more stable picture.

Well, I have had this module in for a couple of weeks, and saw very little improvement in power. I removed it today and ... the engine refused to start! The message on the screen said, 'Service Electronic Throttle Control' (the sensor on the gas pedal). I think all these modules corrupt the ECM a little bit and when you remove them, the ECM has a fit (like when a virus has been removed). I had to tow the truck to the dealer and it's sitting there till they reopen after the long weekend .. Will probably need an ECM refresh. That's it: no more power modules for me! Two mods are enough: 1) performance exhaust 2) air intake.
