not 25k at all....needs some aim work too. try lowering it below how stock would be aimed so you don't blind so many people. no need to make on coming cars pissed off

here's how my 6k's are aimed...you want to try to give it as much of a cutoff as possible..you'll see just as well because they are bright and others will like you more on the road

Hey guys I need help. I had my 3rd brake light, spoiler holes, and faux gas cap holes filled/shaved. I'm thinking about getting the keyhole shaved and running a hidden button to pop it. What I'm wondering is will my *** look bad like that w/o any black?? Taillights are stock.

Picked up a Gt front and Gt rear bumper for my 08 V6. Going in the shop tomorrow, getting a dual exhaust on it too while its in the shop. Still can't decide between magnaflow or ford racing though. Getting a black billet grill upper & lower. Also some new headlights with black housing and halos. I can't wait!

I know, I LOVE the way it sounds. I actually prefer the sound over Ford Racing, but I have an Auto so I'm worried about drone on the highway and I heard Magnaflow has a bit of drone. I just can't decide if I should play it safe with the Ford Racing or take a chance with Magnaflow...

Well if you want a dual exhaust, why would you want it to be quiet? Lol go flowmaster

couldn't complete the 1st pull due to lack of full across the board. started to lean out after 3-1/2k. sucks that I couldn't make 3 pulls BUT, I did walk away with important information.

Aside from needing more fuel, Im making 273hp @ 3500 and 400 ft/lbs at the same at the rear wheel! awesome! heading in the right direction!

I'll keep you guys posted on details on my next dyno visit.

Today I washed my car, in the rain (only lightly spitting out) to get some of that early wet-season road grime off of my V6. I prepped the tires, still on the car, for tomorrows hopeful Plastidipping, and detailed the inside lightly to keep the dust down.

Hopefully, by Saturday, I'll be able to post:

I did my wheels. The Plastidip looks great and I just got it back from SHC (my glass shop) and my tints look amazing. Two weeks to order my Louvers and the first parts of my "Blacked Out Bullitt" look will be good... at least good enough for me to live with it, save my pennies over the next months and then do my CAI, TB, Tune and exhaust come spring!



Stand by.

Changed my oil. Used Mobil1 "High Mileage" 5W-30 for the first time. For the first 300K miles, I have been using regular Mobil1 Extended Service 5W-30.
- * My post is notate that I added a metal conditioner "Motorkote". Two oz per quart of oil in engine.
-Anyone else use Motorkote on their weapons or vehicle? It's meant to be added to differentials, manual transmissions, power steering sump, ect..
So far so good!
Info regarding Motorkote is found by Google in regards to racing teams and semi-trucking, and lastly weapons & household equipment like chain saws, lawn motors, snow mobiles, ectt.. FYI!
