I know the last time when deranged was down, I couldn't shake him off my tail, and then he had the old motor.  But you will always want more!

just ask brianN hmmmm he's at the dunes right now enjoying his new tune from chris. now chris may not do as most of us would expect  ;) ;) ( that's a topic for a diff discussion that most do) but his tune is 100 times better than the shop in tulsa  rofl

WHen I was there Wednesday there was no one anywhere to be seen. I LOVE it like that.

loyalty to the American people."

And to think this new set up is bananas compared to the 750!  The paddles are much better too.  This winter it will get a set of Blackbirds or STU's.  I can't complain too much with these Pro-Armors though.  My buddy Scott is going to lighten them up for me next month.  He usually sees 8-10# lighter per paddle and 5# for the fronts!

LOL!!  Wait till this fall!  I think I am happy with the power I have now.  This winter I will be tearing things down to get the trans gears back cut so this is when I will do the big bore kit.  Keep it simple.

This past weekend I swapped out the round HID's for a new light bar.  It is one off of Amazon.  Nilight is the brand.  It has spot and flood beams in the bar.  Those HID lights seemed to pull SO much power.  My volt meter was showing low 11v with the HID's on.  With the new bar and the new pod lights, I am at 12.5 at idle.  I have to get them out ant night to really see how well they actually do.  Kinda sucks because I love the look of the round lights.  I couldn't find a good round LED option that looked good.  For the price, I can't complain too much.  It's not like I am running all night with them.  Just the occasional evening dune run.

So I actually am using real CV boot clamps now...LMAO!  I have been using hose clamps...  I have very little clearance between the lower arm and the CV boot.  At full droop the hose clamp worm gear/bolt was hitting the arm and popping the boot off.  Yeah, CV clamps are cool and they work AWESOME!  5: 5: 5: 5:

I had to also do something with my inner boot.  I had the f-150 boot OVER the CV.  It worked but there is do ridges to hold the boot on.  I bought some bolt on flanges that are the same diameter as the CV.  The socket head cap screws were a little too tall as the axle would hit the bolt heads at full droop.  Well, I had an idea, I rounded the heads of the bolts and it works awesome!  Now it has a proper flange and also gets the CV boot out a little bit and I think it will be easier on the boot as well. 

I also played with the bypasses.  One thing I noticed was my last adjustment didnt do tto much.  I think my shim stack in the coilover is too big now, not allowing the bypass to really do it's job.  Looks like I will be messing with the valving a little bit.  Maybe not...LOL.

Shock tuning is one of those black magic things.
