Finally, I get to join the club!

Well I purchased my truck back in the end of December and after patiently waiting for it to arrive it finally came yesterday night. It's a mess right now. I need to give it a good cleaning for sure. I've already got my Spartan tuner and DPF/CAT delete pipe from PTP. Just waiting to get some time to install everything and give the truck a good once over.

I know we read a lot about the faults of these trucks but I must say I am very impressed with everything about the truck so far.

Good looking truck. Congrats!!

It looks like it already has some sort of exhaust. That is not the stock tip.

Thanks, sharp eye! Yes it has a Magnaflow DPF back on it already. Other than that it is all stock.

I noticed the tip also.I just finished it before the end of the season went to the track once made one pass on motor to about 800' and a $hitty pass it went 6.20 to the 1/8th and 10.18@ 111mph,broke the trans on the second pass.I figure it should go 8.50's on a 300 shot.How bout yours it looks pretty stout.

Sounds like my story. I'm still under the construction phase. Its a 393w with a F1R Procharger around 12psi. I first season I broke the C4 twice. This past season I switched over to a TH400. I've been fighting electrical ignition gremlins from the begining. Been a best of 9.50 with it but it was running like crap. So this winter I am switching from the factory EFI to Holley Dominator EFI system. Hoping to run bottom nines when its all said and done.

It's pretty much the reason I bought this truck. Last summer I got a deal on a 28' enclosed trailer to haul it around in. (In the backround in the above picture) My old 00 F-150 just didn't like pulling it around much at all, so it was time to upgrade.
