I thought it looked like a coyote. That should be a real nice improvement!!
Yeah waiting on some billet gears and a new high flow oil pump. Also thinking about swapping cams. It will see some boost eventually

Same here. I dont have much time, so I end up making time. Late nights in the garage when everyone else has gone to bed. I take 30min naps on my lunch break just about every day, that's my saving grace
I hear you there. Lol I spend at least 2 nights a week inside with the wife and kids and normally have family dinner on sundays

Early morning. I can easily get an hour in the garage before work.
I wish I could. I start at 6, but I am usually early, so if I were to work in the garage before work I'd have to get up at 3:30 instead of 4:30. I don't think i could do it. :LOL:

I wish I’m on the clock a 5:12 every morning. I worked nights for a while I would spend 2-3 hours in the barn before bed. Only thing I liked about nights lol

Well still waiting on parts to show up but I have gotten a few of them. My intake and oil pump showed up but still waiting on my billet oil pump gears to show up. I let my 4 year old daughter pick the engine color. I ordered a pair of turbos that will go on after I have the truck up and running. I need to clean the throttle body so it looks better and need to decide what I’m doing with the valve covers

Nope. This is a truck motor so it’s already lower than the mustang 10.5:1 vs 11.0:1 also only planning on 6-8 lbs should put it I. The 6-700 hp range. The coyote responds well to boost.

Personally, this is how Ford should have built the current generation Raptor. Now they are playing catch up against Ram with their TRX.

The raptor R will have a v8 rumor is 5.2 supercharged from the gt500. But I also feel it should of came like this. The v6 is lighter thoe.

Not sure if it started in 12 but my brother has a 13 or 14 and he’s had valve seat issues, he’s had one fixed and possibly another one needs it now. Guess it’s a common problem till 14 I think

Yeah it’s a problem with the Intake Valve Face eroding. I’m not worried about it.
