My 2016 RCSB 5.0 with a Roush supercharger has performed more or less ok. A cylinder head temperature sensor failed around 25,000 miles, leaving me stuck in limp mode, which required a tow back to my...

Max Boost worked, and reduced knock and increased spark over the majority of the pull. From approximately 3000rpm to 7000rpm, there was no spark reduction on either of the Max Boost 3rd gear pulls,...

That is a complicated question, and there are many variables. I think the most important question is how much octane your truck actually needs, and once you know that, any fuel/octane booster that...

The 170 degree rating is when the thermostat starts to open, and there is usually a 20 degree spread from when it starts to open to when it is fully open. I have the 170 in my supercharged 5.0, and...

On my 600whp supercharged 5.0, my two previous oil changes were 5w-30, and the oil analysis on both came back stellar. If 5w-30 can handle 600whp, then I imagine 5w-20 would work fine for the stock...

Personal taste really, as a 2wd truck can certainly be made to go fast, it just won't be as flexible day to day. I didn't want a lowered truck or a raised truck, so a stock height 4x4 was a good...

Who cares guys, seriously. Look at the viscosity, look at the wear numbers, to determine if the oil held up. You are getting hung up on something that is only a small factor in a UOA, and UOA's...
