I’ll look into that. I’m going to reroute the intercooler hoses while everything is off. Dropped the intake off at the machine shop this afternoon to have the heater inlet drilled and threaded. Not going through this crap again.

Did you get those intercooler lines from SVT Tim? He makes the nicest set of ic lines available. Long enough to go around to the fender, so you can ditch the hard lines on the blower. And they have a mesh like covering on them, just really nice hoses. I bought the full four piece set and replaced all of them, even the two down low under the bumper.

Then his shorty heater hoses and PCV hose set. Just all really nice stuff.

Those lower lights look grungy. Need to put some HIDs in them as well.
I ended up swapping out the oxidized fogs shortly after I did the headlights. Now I need to address the oxidized tails...

Get rid of the metal lines. They're small and attached to the blower, which gets hot. They just end up transferring heat back to that which you're trying to keep cool. Plus the blower ends up looking much cleaner without them there.

Here's a picture of both sides of the blower without all the junk on the sides.

Nice who did your lights?
I did them using write-ups from the F150 and Expy forums. Along with parts from The Retrofit Source. All together it was somewhere south of $300 and a weekends work.
I went the hard route and chose larger projector housings that required cutting the backs off and grafting PVC to the Depo housings in order deepen them and clear the lens. There is a smaller projector that drops right in without cutting, but I didn't like how small it looked.

anyone recognize this lightning? Maybe the owner is on here? I looks wild driving around Taunton mass today! Caged, carbon fiber parts and weld wheels.

Anyone on here?

Those look good. I was gona do mime but the back omes didnt have much meat to shave off the tread. Ended up fiberglassing the top to make em smooth b4 paint. Is there plenty of room for error on the front steps to sand off the tread? You can just semd me those if you want. My truck is black also. Lol

You have to plastic weld the back side or use some repair material on the back to make it rigid.

Drove it to work today. Feels great getting seat time again.

Can you spot what's missing?


Oh yeah, the door steps are going now that it's lower. Deciding on side skirts or custom tubes.
