wicked wheel and hpx

I finally got around to installing my wicked wheel and hpx. Quieted the truck a little and the wicked wheel sounds awesome. Also painted my ic pipes black and my compressor housing old ford blue. Only thing that sucks is i took out my map sensor removing the ic pipe and had to make an emergency run to the part store. deffinately recommend both mods

I liked my HPXover, but I'd rather use a hard line instead of a rubber crimped one. Had one where the crimp cracked and leaked then a new one wasn't done well and blew apart. Keep those plugs for the ports with you incase something lets loose. Otherwise I woulda been stuck.

Cool. The only other thing I found is that with those Orings sitting in the tool box for a year or more, the orings dried out, so after I replugged them they leaked and I had to go get more orings. When I put on another HPXover, I'm gonna get the orings and keep them in the bag cause they're in oil, and that way they'll stay good.

I assume you are talking about the high pressure oil line cross over right?
How much difference does it make when you install it?
I want details before I decide to do it or not.

On mine, I had a noticeably smoother idle and easier start ups in cold weather since I have 15W40 all the time. Power/dyno wise? Can't really tell.

Ya no power difference idle smoothed out and it got quieter. I'd say its good investment.
