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!

Interior/Exterior / FD body parts eBay? best place?

Looking at some carbon side skirts and rear diffuser, 'possibly' rear duck tail spoiler.  Any great options?  I would support Ronin in a heartbeat but I dont think they offer feed style sides and rear diffuser?  I see the eBay stuff is that crap?  Shine Auto the best?  Thank you!

Electronics / Click click start issue without the click....
« on: July 18, 2018, 02:15:05 PM »
Looking for some help. The day I got the car off the shipping truck I had the click click no start issue and it eventually would start. I tracked down the clutch interlock switch was flaky with resistance. I bypassed it and itís been solid for going on 3 years now.  Recently I go to turn the key and I get no crank not even a click. All the gauges power up and even dim in what would be the crank cycle. Takes 3-10 turns of the key finally cranks and fires.  Wondering if itís the relay or starter and easy way to diagnose. Thanks all!!

Interior/Exterior / Side skirts and mud flap options for FD?
« on: July 11, 2018, 12:17:49 PM »
Between the sticky NOT01 tires and the the iowa back roads that have rocks from all the gravel butting up to them... its doing a number on my car.  Currently I have no side skirts or flaps but thinking of filling in the rock chips professionally and adding skirts and flaps to help keep the rocks off my paint.  Any good options that support both?  Ideally I was thinking the underside would then also be coated in a 'rock guard' or something so it didn't get chipped either. 

I like the feed style skirts but haven't see a mud flap that would work.  I haven't looked that hard yet so if anyone knows anything that would be great!  Thanks!

The Lounge / Exotic Car
« on: June 19, 2018, 05:50:55 PM »
Anyone ever know anyone that tried it?  Just curious there cannot be THAT much stuff you get for $1K fee.  I have thought of the depreciation stuff before and always thought you could end up with a exotic for free (after a few successful trades) but never had the guts to try HAHA. 

Electronics / Steering wheel remote pioneer
« on: May 21, 2018, 08:17:03 PM »
Anyone ever figured out how to make a simple volume switch that would be battery powered and use the same IR freq as pioneer head unit?  I have a remote, I was thinking of taking it apart and trying to figure out if I can simplify it and mount on my Momo wheel nice and clean. 

Crazy that I miss using the steering volume.  Pioneer makes a steering remote but it looks to bulky. I really only use volume.

The Lounge / Scary fast, unique, 4 seater car...what would you get?
« on: May 01, 2018, 05:39:49 PM »
I love my rx7 and will keep it but I wish I could take the family in it.  Right now my small girls have to take turns and we all know who much fun that is for the one left behind  :poke:

If I look for something with 2 back seats it would fit my family of 4.  My girls are 4 and 7 so they are still small and they don't need a lot of room.  What would you guys do?  Only thing I wouldn't get would be a Porsche.  I don't know why I can't stand them. 

Thoughts I had were:

1K hp CTS-V
Audi RS7
STi - I had one really not interested in another
Evo - Meh..
06-07 Mazda speed 6 - not fast and hard to mod

Budget would be less then $35K so that rules out the German stuff.  If it was AWD I maybe could justify it knowing I could drive it longer into winter and earlier in spring. 

I just want something unique don't care about prestige, in fact probably prefer something not so 'cherry' as the RX7 so I could drive it in the rain and leave my F150 parked most of the summer. 

Looking forward to your suggestions!  Thanks!

Drivetrain / T56 to Magnum conversion tips?
« on: April 23, 2018, 12:03:47 PM »
Hi Guys,

Wondering if anyone has any last tips for my conversion?  Hoping to swap it in a month or so.  I have the new trans, new driveshaft, wiring pigtails from Mark (GNX7) at nor cal motorsports.  I will do the shifter mod with the welded rod to get the 4" back spacing. 

Any tips for the actual installation?  I'm expecting to remove at least one header (JTR 1-7/8") on the driver side, hoping I don't have to to the passenger side as its buried in AC lines. 

I plan to leave the clutch and bellhousing intact and untouched. 

Thanks for the tips!!

Looking for a 2860 cartridge anyone know of any places that stock?  I need it by wends.

Long shot posting here but figure there are a lot of gear heads with hook ups!

PS itís for my snowmobile. Thanks!!

Drivetrain / What intake manifolds fit FD?
« on: October 11, 2017, 02:56:42 PM »
Probably seems like a redundant question but I can't see to find a solid post on this. 

I have a LS6 intake and the Improved racing strut bar, is this the only manifold that will fit? 

Samberg front subframe, mounts, etc.

Old school fast 90?  Fast 92, Fast 102, and MSD Atomic.  I think all of them require hood webbing to be removed and firewall issues correct?

Looking for one that would fit but I could port like the Fast or MSD manifolds. 

Interior/Exterior / Loose stock seats?
« on: September 27, 2017, 12:39:40 PM »
It feels like my drivers side seat is loose but the seat is tight to the floor and the play is coming from the seat rails.  Anyone experience anything similar?  I suppose I can yank it out and check it out, just being lazy... :secret:
