Remember, this is the same guy (picture from last summer) you're making fun of:



Yes, you can try to keep up with the old geezer now.  :yoda:

I always love your boating pictures, it is as if you have a professional photography team following you.

Thanks Steve! That one did happen to be taken by a professional photographer at a charity Poke Run I do every year.

Looking for input guys, keep or scrap the FX4 decal? I'm kind of liking it without, but on the fence. I always thought it broke up the paint a bit, maybe even just drop the "Off Road" bit...

That is a very cool pic. I am impressed that the guy was using a lens so fast that he captured the prop.

I think this was a topic with Jason's new truck.  I think the consensus was to get rid of them.  At least that's my opinion.  I don't like them on any vehicle.  So much cleaner without them.

Another vote for get rid of them.  I am not a decal guy either.

This opinion is worth exactly what you paid for it.
EG: the opinion and a toonie will get you a small double - double.

Well, I think I'm going to pull the FX4 decal from the Driver's side and both Ecoboost badges. I'll put one EcoBoost Badge on the tailgate and leave it at that...

Also, PhotoBucket hosting test.

Old wheels.  Is this a new pic on a Dyno or an old pic just for test purposes.  Damnit, don't mess with my emotions.  Can we expect new numbers or not?

Lol! Just was messing with PhotoBucket. It’s a old pic.

I don’t expect to get numbers until late April or Early May. Lots of time on the road and it will take a few more revisions to get the tune dailed in.

Hahaha, trust me, I want numbers too.

I’m just not gonna rush it and then be disappointed.

The goal is 500whp, it would be nice to see 550, but I don’t think it will happen unless I mix some race gas.

Finally found the cause of some odd wastegate behavior. The Springs were different lengths and I did have the caps on correctly causing a air leak.

Springs swapped and all is installed properly now. No more issues. I ran the truck for a couple hundred miles last night to make sure I had it licked.

Weather is warmer and issue sorted so we can get back on with tuning. New revision hit my inbox this morning, so I'll go run it tonight and log.

Wtf?  Haha.  I love.how you can just randomly go log a "couple hundred miles" at night.  Who does that?  Haha.  I would have probably driven it 20 minutes and called it good.

The issue would sometimes take a bit to show itself, so I wanted to be as sure as possible. Plus it was a nice drive to the mountains.

I can appreciate a nice drive to the mountains for sure.  I just think it's hilarious. 

"Man, somethings not right with my truck.  Let me try a few things and drive half away across the state (province?) to see if it happens again.".

So I heard drive to the mountains but no pictures...
