i wish i was driving it. It is a major snafu as far as scheduling goes. luckily i confirmed with blow by racing that it is all legit and im not getting screwed. just playing the waiting game which is getting really really old.

Good to hear you got it goin.

Is it just me or did anyone else expect more horsepower?

Granted you do have a lift and larger tires

And while you are at it have Mel in the driver’s seat; it would be a good Driver’s Side Ranger Chick Picture, of course with a pretty lady at the wheel.

lol I will have TONS of pics and video this weekend. Pickin up the output shaft seal from Ford, going down to Blow By and installing that. IM guessing around 30 minutes ton replace that and she is good to go. Still have to button up a few things and use an Air hammer on the header to clearance a little for the steering shaft.

Hey Scrambler... its MAL lol

And yes it is because of the big tires, E85 gas, auto trans, and 4.10 gears. They said is roughly around 310hp and 360 ftlb at the engine. but 208 at the wheel with 256 tq i will take anyday of the week
