Nah. Always loved turbos. Even though I know superchargers are way easier.
or sell and buy rcsb ecoboost with top mount 72mm turbos.
Only ford I want is an ls swapped fox lol
imo, those FX4 rcsb in the old body style are tits
um what the gay.
Fox body's are cool on drag radials and powered by a non Ford motor
Nothing new, just stocking up some parts and making decisions for new wheels come spring time.
Took advantage of Powerstop's black Friday deals on RockAuto for 15% off, plus a 5% coupon code I found on the other forum. Ended up buying 05+ front rotors (which are 1" larger in diameter than 04 and older models, requiring 17s or larger), pads, and calipers, along with a Tahoe rear brake setup, which upgrades mine from single to dual piston calipers, plus rotors and pads. Still need to buy stainless braided lines and fluid. It should be a nice upgrade over the stock setup.
I need to redo the exhaust at some point. The welds aren't the best and the clamps are coming loose and not holding as well as they did when they were new 6 years ago. Either gonna find an exhaust shop and have them custom bend everything or buy a cat back and modify it a tad. While that's happening I have to add a bung for my wideband somewhere. Everything I've read says put it close to or on the collector, but that will only give me readings from one side and I'd like to have more data from both banks, not just one. So thinking just after the merge in the Y pipe will be fine for my needs. Then I can data log more detailed data to send off to Richard to see if he can fine tune it a bit more and maybe be a bit more aggressive.
So 4500ish miles and the stock G80 is still intact, stock trans is still intact, stock driveshaft is still intact, and the new clutch is fine. I call that a win for sure
Also need to figure out my driveline vibration. It's almost certainly pinion angle related, I have just been lazy.
Nothing new has been done and nothing has exploded yet.
for the right price i can make a full stainless catback for you. tig welded lol
Hmm. And V-band everything too lol. I also want to eliminate the flange between the y and the cat back and put my cutout somewhere there with v bands incase it needs to come apart.
if you have all the v bands, we can prolly do it in a weekend. lol
I also need to work on my bagged truck lol
Tempting. I have some time to decide what I wanna do, I'll let ya know.
And yeah ya do. Gotta have it driving to Ringoes and OK next year!
i hope to. it prolly wont be painted by they, but i hope to have it running and driving by then.
When I swapped the 6.0 and did the other work (including the drop shackles) to my Reg Cab I ended up with a vibration between 40-45 mph. Have you figured anything out? Ive tried 2* shims so far with no real change.
You will like the 05 brakes...they're a nice swap.
I have yet to measure, I just used the shims and it helped a bit, but I still have a vibration in 3rd at 70ish. Gotta measure and figure it out. Though it didn't change from 4.8 to the 370.
Im looking forward to upgrading the brakes. I just need to buy wheels and tires too. Just keep adding shit up lol
More parts stacking. I feel like I can make a carer out of that
-Bought that remote short shifter that everyone sent me the video of
-03+ full console and glove box
-SEM paint to paint everything
-Silverbirch paint for the plastics that have been off forever
-New tires since the tires on the 20s were shot, 275/45 Toyo Proxes ST
-New wheels since the 20s were pitted, flaking, and one had a tiny bend in the lip
Went with 20x8.5 Raceline Surge's. I was going back and forth on a couple different wheels, some OEM some aftermarket. There's not a whole lot of decent options that aren't billets but I really like these and am excited to see what they'll look like on the truck. I haven't seen any yet, so that's kinda neato.
get to work son.
Tires are in, wheels will be here Monday or Tuesday.
