Depends on what brand CAI is being used but that factory intake on a 6.0 is better than most if not all intakes unless you are going for huge power.
Can't tell the brand of the CAI. It's just a giant open element cone filter sans heat shield.
The Edge looks like an old Evolution one. Looks just like my PHP Gryphon (rebranded Edge Evo) in my current F150 except its silver.
I live in jersey as well and have seen tons of trucks posted by this dealer. In my opinion i feel they are always overpriced and not in the best condition but then again I am very picky with my vehicles and they must be clean, spotless, and free of any damage dings or dents. I would try and work down the price if you end up going with this particular truck, but i gotta say it is my favorite color LOL my buddy had a 05 CCSB FX4 in this color and it looked sick. As far as the edge is concerned a lot of guys on here will tell you their aren't the best programmers since they only tune your engine and not your transmission as a good tuner will do. I would get any of the SCT programmers and use one of the reputable tuners like Quicktricks auto, Innovative diesel, gearhead performance ETC. The difference in the tow kits is the more expensive one has the Ford OEM gaskets which are actually better than the black onyx gaskets that the opposing package has. The Ford OEM gaskets are better than the black onyx so, yes, definitely get the more expensive package. Where exactly in jersey are you?
I have it in my head to get a blue truck this time and I don't know why. Usually I'm not to concerned about he color - I just avoid gold, blah white, purple/pink/baby blue, and any BRIGHT colors like yellow and fire truck red.
As for the Edge I have a PHP Gryphon now on my F150. Much better product as the guy who puts them out will write you a tune custom tailored to every aspect of your truck. I just never did that as I got lazy - Ran the canned trans tune a few times and used it mainly as another gauge in my pod.
I'm in Oak Ridge - Paramus isn't too far away. Down 23 to 287, all the way up 287 to 17, then across 17 to Paramus. Went to school in Mahwah, and my second job has a branch right by Ikea.
Agreed, also the original intakes is good up to 500hp so you would be fine with a stocker
Yea no. Simple mods - gonna be the daily driver with rare towing duties and probably frequent "haha stupid ricer come get me."
