Default 2013 FX4 Tuxedo Black Ecoboost build

Thought I'd start a build thread as the mods have already started.

What am I going to do with this truck, as of today I'm looking at the following mods:
1. Lowering 3/5 (why? because a lifted 4x4 is not necessarily condusive to fast 1/4 mile times) the 4x4 is for traction not for off road.
2. Pro Comp Series 7032 20x9 wheels with some appropriate sticky meat
3. LOTS of Full-Race upgrades, turbo(s), intercooler, intake piping, brakes and fuel system upgrades. Will be working with Geoff a TON to get this done.
4. Lots of blacking out, color matching the chrome emblems, removing FX4 stickers, debadging the ecoboost emblem etc. Still doing a ton of research on this.

One of the cool things I'm already looking at will be a 20 gallon fuel cell where the spare tire is and a remote filler behind a flip down license plate holder.
What's the end goal for this truck? SPEED, low 11 second 1/4 miles, what's it going to take to do that? WHO KNOWS but I surely plan to do it.

Picked up the truck Tuesday, told them not to wash it as I don't want swirls on it so it's got bugs on the truck already from some driving. Headed to Mexico for a few days then it will get detailed and paint protection.

Day 1 Picked it up
Day 2 Tuned it - thanks again Torrie
Day 3 Airaided it - swapped intake from my FX2 I traded in to this truck.
