It really is fun. Pretty overwhelming at first but things start making sense after the heat exchanger and IC pump, pulleys, S/C pulley bridge, intake and blower are done. 90% of it is a breeze. JakeWright1195 and I bought and installed fordmotorsports L kit and used his, 4x4daves and one other build thread along with some q&a courtesy of fordmotorsport. Now I'm either going 4v or L swap for my own truck because stock really sucks now.

The little things are what will confuse me. I went from wanting to work the heads and a cam swap this summer to a built 2v and a lightning swap in less than a month. You could say things got a bit out of hand. Now that it's a blown build for sure, I'm going to take the time to spend a little more on the good parts. This will be a long time of collecting

That's a good way to go about it, junk doesn't do well under power. Don't settle and make it what YOU want!

Whats ur email man? I got a full excell sheet with prices and links to parts. More comprehensive than Mikes list

Give me a shout if you need any tips or parts. Got a ton leftover and for sale on lr. Have you got started yet? How much did you drop on the blower parts if you don't mind me asking? Looks like a decent start, it will definitely need some clean up lol

Thanks for the motivation lol. Stepping up from the modmax pistons to the Mahle forged powerpak street series, LT's if King can ship reasonably, and mmr supercharger cams. One piece at when spare cash comes in.

I pm'd you. Plan on hitting up you and fordmotorsports a lot. I think I'll keep blower off the truck and save it for the built motor..or as long as I can hold off. I paid $600 for the lot

Well guys Im finally back on my feet after a god awful month of misfortune.

I got alot of reading to catch up on. And alot of parts I need to send off to u guys. I had to change MYFX4's timing cover bolts, because the trick flow set wouldnt work with his navi heads.
