who can explain and anwer a few questions

First of all the "foil delete" a fancy way of saying " I took the insulation off of my intake tube" if the idea of an intercooler is to cool the air going into the engine, the insulation is to minimize the effects of engine temp on the tube and the incoming air, what do you gain by taking it off???? and I seen some guys do the shackle flip deal for a bit of lift, does it really ride/ handle as well as the factory set up, can you do it on the front and back, is it still as stable?? I've put kits on other offroad vehicles of mine but never just flipped them. Can anyone, who's done this say for sure it handles as well after as before. Oh i gots a 2001 f-350

Looks better and gives you that great sound

I don't know what your talking about on the shackle flip.

Yes, the foil delete is a fancy way of saying you ripped the foil off. It really doesn't effect air temps, its just there for sound. As far as gains, it looks better and cleaner under the hood, and you get more turbo sound.

Can't help ya with the shackle deal though.
