Default johnday's 2017 build

Picked this truck up 10/07, after driving an '18 150 down to another dealer for a trade on 10/06. Since I drive part time for my dealer, I as allowed to do that. No one other than the carhauler and whoever at the factory has driven thisbut me.
Change for me going to a 3.5 Egoboost from a tuned 5.0, worlds of difference right now,but hope I can get this thing to run as good, or maybe better.
10 speed, XLT/Sport, 3:55ELD,.
Firstphotos are at the dealer with my '12, and when I first got it home.

So today, I got the tailgate F150 badge off, both Egoboost door stickers, and that godawful/stupid/gayass "Sport 4 times 4" thing off the box. I hate that word "Sport". Reminds of the Brady Bunch.
Got my tonneau on from the '12, nice surprise it fit!!
Hope to order exhaust, wheelwell liners, tuner, this week
Plan to lower the rear end, it's 3" higher than the front 37"/40" right now. Another different approach for me.
Anyway, todays expose.

You stepped over to the dark side TT. LOL Nice truck, don't waste any $$ trying to make it sound like a v8.

Wow...that nose to nose shot make the '17 look small! I agree with Rnlcomp on the sound, If your going for the deep tones you will be disappointed with the EB exhaust.

Looking Good John, don't know if the Turbo helps or hinders the sound but to my old ears the V6 the louder it gets the worst they sound. My Mustang is subtle, Short tube headers and Borla Touring. But on a side note I have Roush muffler off of my 6.2 I can give you.

Nah, no way it's gonna sound as good, at least to us nonmillenials. I'm just aiming to make it livable and limit the rice as much as possible, maybe with the turbos singing the rice won't be noticed. LOL.
So, is the color alright?

Oh, I sure can't disagree, I'm a bit on the nervous side. The least rice sounding one I've found is the Borla SType, of course I'm partial to Borla to start with. As it is though, I can't wait to hear those turbos.

Thank you! No on the wheels, my salesman/friend bought them, the KO2's, the CAI, and my suspension. He's taking the Borla off for me to sell, already have a bite on it. He's flipflopping the boards as well and giving them back to me. He also knows what kind of parts I've got, so I'm waiting a week or so before I list them myself. Even has a guy that will tune the 3.5 anyway I want, but I'm a bit leery about that. Not because the dealer knows, but does this guy know what he's doing?

A word to the wise about modding. ALWAYS hold on to your stock parts if they're any good.
