Goodbye '12 5.0, hello '07 5.4

Lost the crappy MT82 in my '12 again about a month ago (no 6th, barely goes in reverse, everything grinds and clunks). This makes the third time, and I decided to not fix it and get rid of the car. ...

If you mean his Drifts, they have certainly made the rounds since I sold them to him. Still one of my favorite wheels.

Welcome in, I'm in Keller as well.

Not really a fan of the ghost cam tune, early versions had pretty serious issues with cylinder wall washdown.

I've been all the way and back with mine. Just...

Good luck man, the market seems overly saturated with '11 - '14 cars right now. I listed mine a couple of times, both with and without blower, at ridiculously low prices, and had zero bites. Now the...

I've been doing it for a long time. Great field to get into, but you'll need to specialize these days. The era of the "many hats" IT guy is over.

A computer related degree will likely not help...

A little of both. 30 psi is not the optimum pressure for a DR for sure. I run them on the green car year round, but it's not a daily.

If you're dead set on running them, look at Nitto's. They will...

And that is exactly why I rarely post here or on the FB group (especially the FB group, never heard so much dumb-assery in one place before).

That was an all in one build, from stock to blown all in one move. My other '03 was just a bolt on car, and like any other car, when the mods are big enough you have to retune. Long tubes and an x...

Looks good! Looking forward to your hearing impressions of going through the traps on bias ply tires. I'm old, that's all we had back in the day, so you get used to the feeling. Kind of.

Travis has never let me down. He's tuned a number of cars for me over the years, and fixed what other shops haven't been able to as well. I'll admit, he's had his fair share of questionable shop...

And my mistake on the wood screw, it was actually a sheet metal screw. The type that holds siding on a metal building. Still had the rubber washer on it too.

We could start both stock, no issues. I've been doing these things long enough to have it 98% correct as soon as I finish bolting the carb on. Won't need a jet change, just a little smoothing out.
