  1. So I plan to do a few things to this truck. So far, the list will be: (1) Tint the front two windows and windshield. (2) Weather tech Mud Flaps (3) Catch can (4) Katzkin leather seats (5) LED headlights and taillights. (6) AMP tailgate extender (7) Console Vault A part of me wants to do performance mods, but the primary use for this truck is to be a baby hauler and not void the warranty. If I do anything, it might be a drop in high flow air filter and tune at the most. Just for future reference.... 2019 F-150 XLT Super Crew FX4 with 2.7L Twin Turbo Eco Boost 325hp / 400tq
  2. Well, got the front Weather Tech mud flaps on. They're easy to do and look OEM. Ford should contract with them and install them on all F150’s.

  5. My dream job would be some type of performance automotive reliability engineer. I could see myself in new Shelby's, Raptors, Corvettes, Camaro's, Challenger's, Dodge TRX, etc., running them on the edge in every way!

  8. I'm the complete opposite. You'd think i'm nuts if you seen me drive on my daily grind. At 5am, 25 minutes for me to go from nearly the end of Cockril Bend out by John C Tune to Old Hickory.... in the Tundra (it's speed limited to / shuts off at 109 mph). Camaro SS has seen quicker times.

    Well, time to fix a few issues and do a couple mods. First, I'm replacing that POS VARARAM turbulent heat sucker. From all my reading, it looks like Cold Air Inductions makes about the best power if I use the JRE scoop. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Smo75RWYXjzUfsZeyoilhCG0jPCzI6PBzmfOpGA_Ae4/edit#gid=0

    I'll look in to it. Is there a block off plate for the MAF in the intercooler? I forget where the MAF was on the factory setup, but how far from the TB should it be?
  11. So what are your ET goals this year for the 1/8 and 1/4? Last year, my best 1/8 was 7.6 at 93 mph and 1/4 ET was 11.7 at 118 mph If we go by my last dyno n/a then it was with 442 rwhp. I'm going to shoot for mid 10's this season with DR's. If I do better than that, it'll be a bonus. Current dyno's are 723 rwhp pump and 760 rwhp E85. Weight with full tank is probably closer to 4200lbs with the blower and external trans cooler / larger trans I've added.
  12. Measured the step height on both trucks. The Tundra is 10 inches from the ground to the top of the step. The F150 is 15 inches from the ground to the top of the step. So it makes sense why my mother-in-law is having trouble getting in/out of the F150 and not the Tundra. I doubt I'd find a spacer to get that step down that low and plus it probably would look odd. So the electric running board looks like the best choice since it drops lower and then tucks under the truck.
  13. As much as i love the factory running boards, they are not low enough for my mother-in-law. She has nearly slipped a handful of times getting in and out of the F150. For a 75 year old, a broken hip or something would be like a death blow. So I need to add to the list, some running board spacers or drop brackets. if I can't find them, maybe I can have some custom spacers made. If I can't do that, I'll probably have to drop some coin on the electric / auto running boards because since they tuck back under the truck cab, they seem to make them a bit lower and further out from the cab in extended position. This one is made for lifted trucks, so it drops down like 3 extra inches. https://www.amp-research.com/powerstep-xl-running-board/2019/ford/f-150 Features and Benefits AMP Research's Powerstep XL Running Boards automatically extend a step when your Ford F150 doors open, and retract when closed AMP Powerstep XL extends to 15" inches (3" more than standard Powerstep) in one second instantly offering a convenient and safer entry or exit Running Board integrated into a custom rocker rail Created with durable and extra strong aluminum with a stylish black finish LED lights come standard to illuminate your steps in the dark 600 lbs load capacity Uses a heavy duty motor with pinch-proof safety technology Entirely weatherproof, maintenance-free Includes all required mounting hardware AMP Research Products are proudly made in the USA with a 5 year/60,000 mile warranty
  14. They do have the dry filters.... Do they still mess up the MAF?

    Well, that sucks! You'd think with the way they farm it would be fresh and good.
  16. What are your ET goals this year?

    I've been looking at mods, but really don't want to void my warranty. So I might just leave this one alone. Being TT and able to make good power tune only, it i temping though!

  17. Random thought thread

    I've fallen out of love for bikes because of all the crazy drivers on the road today, animals running out in the road, debris falling off trucks (no bs, seen a loop handle dolly in the road on I40 coming off Briely Parkway on day), etc. But this mofo makes me want to start riding again. https://www.harley-davidson.com/us/en/motorcycles/fat-boy.html

    They gave me a free bump in warranty to 42,000 miles. But I don’t see myself putting 42k on this truck in 2 years, so it’s worthless really. The rest of the warranty is:

    I'd go back to the dealer I bought it at and make them fix that timing chain issue! I'd be like, look, I just bought this thing and now it's screwed up.... ETC! Hope that crap doesn't happen to mine!

    I talked to Tim this AM and he gave an estimate. So I'm going to trailer it to his shop and let him handle the whole ordeal, tune and all. Just got to get a weekend off and make a appointment with Tim for a Saturday.
