I had to pick up one of these used a year or so ago.  Just an endorsement of how much I like them!  Great product and when jacking the car on one side it dang near comes up level LOL.  Really stiffens the chassis, like noticeably better.

hey buddy question. How accurate is your fuel speed hut gauge. I'm pretty sure mine is off. Would you happen to know which setting you put it on to make it work with our stock sending unit unless you got something else different

Ahh the fuel gauge...

Iím not real happy with the gauge, it does work but it stays on Full for a long time, then slowly drops to half over about a 20 mile period.  Then the last half of the tank can drop in 5 miles to empty.  Go to fill it up and there was 3-4 gallons left.   So I have gotten in a habit of filling at 1/2 tank.  It used to be erratic and a better ground fixed that issue, but still using the stock sender it seems to be a little less then perfect vs a OEM set up.  Good enough to use and trust but just not perfect which is how I want everything :).

I did double check the settings when I was chasing the ground issue and Halfspec did have it set up right.  I think I also email Speedhut to confirm but I canít remember the exact settings. 

Good luck!

The Lounge / New F-150 anyone seen anything unique? Recommendations?
« on: January 28, 2019, 12:54:42 PM »
Hi guys,

I like unique daily driver trucks, hence the LS RX7 as well!  Unique is my thing.  I have tried all brands of truck and really like the F150s for a lot of reasons that we don't need to debate.

So far I have been into the Eco-boost 3.5L and tuning it, they make stupid power and trans tunes make the truck fun to drive but I don't lose any capability when I go tow my 30' trailer. 

I'm leaning towards trying the 5L out with a Whipple Supercharger.  Makes about 750hp compared to my current ~500hp 3.5.  Again I want to upgrade each truck to try out something new and different.  My current truck is a 2016 so it has the older 6 spd trans which is very solid and reliable.  The new 10 spd is supposed to make the trucks even quicker. 

Question is, anyone know of a reputable dealer or 'perf shop' that sells new F150 as a package?  I know of Pettys garage, Roush, and Shelby all offer versions of the truck with the SC option. 

My ideal truck would be less then $65k, stock height or light lower, 5L with SC and some active exhaust (the EB is SOOO quiet), and some decent graphics/wheels to set it apart. 

Just thought I would throw this out there as you guys are all over country and here in the midwest you don't see a lot of custom trucks.  Thanks!

What is different about the "LS7" radiator vs the normal LS Samberg kit?

That flexy shaft thingy was awesome!!  The whole time I'm like how in the world are they going to bolt that up and get it connected to the alternator!  Looks factory when done.  If there is a hard way to do things, and an EXTREMELY time consuming hard way to do things, these guys figure out how to make it more difficult and take longer LOL

Was it a messy 'breakup' from who he paid to do this?  Seems like something done in haste maybe out of spite for no payment?  They can't be that dumb can they?

That is awesome!  They can be pretty reliable when done right, I wouldn't hesitate to drive mine anywhere, just keep a eye out for the rain, my NT01's don't like interstates and rain!  LOL 

The Lounge / Re: 2jz/ls a 350z or rx7?
« on: November 19, 2018, 04:08:25 PM »
The 350z swap is just another 3500+ lb car with 400hp.  Doesn't really do anything well.  The FD on the other hand; the LS turns it into a 2800lb nimble rocket ship that can compete with most modern super cars.  The LS makes everything about the FD better.  Obviously I'm biased but if your going through the work to do a swap, end with something that makes the original car MUCH better.  JMO
