Mod Questions

Hey guys I am about to do the 18k resistor, hi idle mod, IDM mod, and FPR Shim mod and was wondering if any of the would hurt anything, its my daily driver and im in school, so I can't afford an expensive repair!

Just wonderin what you guys think, and also if there are any other mods you think would be beneficial to me?

Thanks guys!!

You should be able to skip the 18k since you are running the Edge. That is a fancy 10k/18k/etc. You will see little or no difference.

Any mods can hurt your truck. If Ford wanted it to have more power they would have done it from the factory. They spent a lot of time and money on research to give you THE MOST RELIABLE truck they could. Just my .02.

i was more thinking something like a tw chip....i still prefer to have analog guages but the edge does get the job done.
id go for lift. if you want it to be near stock as far as drive ability and power i tihnk a 5.5 or 6" lift with 35's is best. A 6" with 37's does look a bit more agressive but then it starts to get hard to load things and that puts even more stress on suspension and steering.
good luck

We can't answer that question for you. Do you want to look good or do you want to be fast??? That is what it comes down to. If you do the lift first and then the DP Tuner/TW you won't have to get the chip reburnt for you new tires.

thanks for your inputs! I was also still wondering about the fpr shim on my truck?

I know that DP/TW are the way to go now for sure... what about lift? is there one out thier for these trucks that miles about the rest? or style of lift springs, blocks, hangers?

Thanks again for all input!

Are you going mild or wild? (I can't remember if you said) You could go mild for cheap by doing a leveling kit that lifts 2.5" and F-350 rear springs. You would be in CHEAP!
As for wild...I have NO idea!
