I've been waiting this last week for a billet oil pump, recommended to do while in there.  it hasn't shown yet, and I no word on when it will be here, Also the install of that thing is 12.5 hrs for a Ford Tech, and you have to go through a gap in the back of the pan with magnets and magic to get the last bolt out of the pickup tube, if you drop it or cant start the new, you have to pull the motor and drop the pan.  so Yea, we're not doing that.   

 

Install is back on.  we got the plugs installed (16) and pulled the old covers.  

 

few quick pics:

picked her up this morning!  Had to defrost and remove 14" of snow, then drove to a job site, but it feels good and sounds good.

We will need more time to get reacquainted .   Sound is great, crisper lil growel, no drone, and still relatively quite when cruzing  :)

That is so awesome!  Planning to help my neighbor install a blower in his 2014 GT in a few days.  I'm excited ;)

OK, a few weeks of driving and I love this mod.  the Raptor drives  really good stock, and now it's just fantastic. 

So worth it, and it's not a cheap upgrade.  Drive-ability improved quite a bit as the computer worked it's tables.  Shifting is smooth and tight, power is awsome, but you can still drive nice and ez if you want.  RPM winds up more, and is very smooth, quick shifts.  good stuff.

 

D-bags on the freeway, push gas pedal = downshift-whaaaaaAAA, 100mph pass.  love that!!! 

when it looses traction, the computer catches it in about one second, then 1-2 seconds later back on the throttle, I like that a lot.  My mustang goes sideways if you're not careful, this is more drive able.  I haven't had any issue with wheel hop, probably due to good tires.  It also will lift the front a little under hard acceleration. 

The sound of the blower whine, and added exhause tone is great.  Very Happy Cusotmer.  :2thumb:
