Friction modifiers can either reduce friction (resource conserving PCMO) or increase friction (LSD gear lubes). ZDDP actually increases friction, by the way.

Mike, maybe I missed something in your posts, but the API SX certification requires a battery of very involved and expensive performance testing. $5k for the logo is a drop in the bucket. I can see...

Fwiw I found the KR to be inconsistent from pull to pull, one rpm vs another, one gear vs another. One pass might have more negative kr in the mid range and another might have more up top. You almost...

The R/T will NOT affect the ET.

Trap speed is the best indicator of power/weight ratio. It gives you the best idea of the power you're putting down and what ET it is capable of.

But yea, 102...

I believe I saw a dyno of 345 rwhp. Assuming 15% loss that’s 395. Furthermore, the stock torque demand table only calls for 395-400 hp IIRC, so even if it’s capable of more (it probably is) then...

I sold a supercharged 2015 and the current owner had both cats go out but they triggered cel’s and were replaced before causing engine damage.

The factory cal is an economy cal. Driving techniques can net the biggest gains. Pure gas helps. Lower the truck and use smaller wheels/tires.

.030 is pretty tight for a stock spec. They tightened it up since the first eb f-150’s came out. I’m not sure I’d go any less than .028 but no, you won’t notice a difference unless it happens to...
