Don't put them on yet... leave them in your driveway for me so I can try them out on my truck first.

depends which side your EGR valve is. if its on the passenger side then they would work.

But for an 03 it does not matter as I have no EGR.

Corn = corn fields

Why dont you just put in a 5.0L. It would be alot better then a supercharged 4.0. With some mods added it would probably be cheaper to.

Just food for thought.

v8 is nothing to me. wouldnt fit that well me thinks.

for 1, I cannot put the radiator in the original location
2, i have a few support pieces for the frame that will be in the way
3 i think it weighs more

i could probably go on. lol

I like the sounds of a v6, supercharged. Idk I just like my 4.0
