    How to get more turbo sound

    That's a hydrocarbon trap for emissions after key off. Will not affect anything. I believe that it was mid-calendar year change so I would say mid-2019. Don't know the exact cutoff date. New turbos came with all 2019+ and then the vanes got deleted later on.

    How to get more turbo sound

    There should not be any swirl vanes on MY2019+. The turbo compressor inlet was switched to a ported shroud design in 2018 that eliminated some of the turbo whoosh noise and improved the pre-turbo swirl ratio.

    Found this little guy today, kinda cool.

    Interesting fact: China Raptors don't have the American flag striping. It's just solid orange.

    July 18 Reveal.

    Probably 6 AM. Similar to what they did with the Bronco Raptor. Sales manager at one dealership said orders open August 13. Take that with a grain of salt.

    Anyone know what happens at Flat Rock, Mi?

    Trucks are sitting at lots all over SE Michigan. Space is limited around the Rouge Complex so trucks are always shuffled around.

    TSB #2198 Raptor/Tremor Specific)

    The hood seals around the perimeter of the air inlet to prevent hot engine air from entering the intake.

    TSB #2198 Raptor/Tremor Specific)

    For the Raptors/Tremors that are most recently built (~ April 2022), the air deflector in front of the air inlet has an updated opening to allow more air flow. Additionally, christmas tree clips with "firs" have been eliminated and have been updated to the 2 piece push in style rivets as Gen 2...

    Anyone know what happens at Flat Rock, Mi?

    Spray-in bedliner takes place on the Rouge complex. Flat Rock is a holding lot for trucks missing parts or being shipped out (by rail or convoy). Here's the lot (rail load in red):

    Family is maybe outgrowing Raptor

    I would look at an Expedition Max (with the extended wheelbase). Plenty of room in the trunk and comfortable seating for 7. If you get the Timberline package, it has the same 3.5L HO engine as the Raptor (with slightly less HP; ~440HP).

    Silver Lake Dunes and my 37pp. Wow

    Hoping to get out there sometime this summer. Looks fun! How did you affix the safety flag to the tow hook? Any recommendations on where to get an appropriate height safety flag?

    Been waiting for a V8 Raptor since 2015. Sucks about Raptor R's fate

    V8 Raptor is definitely not cancelled! And is a lot closer to production than most people on here think.

    Screws under wheel well fender

    These or anything similar to the size and thread will work. Just make sure they're e-coated or they will rust easily.

    Did Ford Shut down the build line?

    DTP is up this week with one crew. No KCAP shifts this week but doesn't affect Raptor.

    If you truck was built with 801A and Pro Power After Mid October, you will be waiting!

    Yes, there will be a customer satisfaction program in place that will refund partially the price of the 801A

    Nope only applies to unbuilt 22MY

    If you truck was built with 801A and Pro Power After Mid October, you will be waiting!

    The good news is that Blue Cruise was holding up the 801A Raptors. With that not available, Ford can get vehicles moving (and provide BlueCruise as an OTA update later on). The bad news is that there may be a potential D35 engine shortage from Lima due to production shortages on certain engine...

    If you truck was built with 801A and Pro Power After Mid October, you will be waiting!

    I can’t speak on the exact details but there will be very good news in about a week or so for those waiting on trucks equipped with the 801A package. This will also impact 22MY orders as well. Hang tight!

    Air filter

    What causes the air filters to look like this is the airbox geometry and the way the airstream has a flow path through the panel style filter. The majority of the air flow occurs through the upper right hand side and hence the greater amount of particulate building in that area of the filter.

    My journey to Raptor R ownership

    I believe you are correct! The camo is very similar to the spy shots of the 2023 GMC Canyon.

    My journey to Raptor R ownership

    That's certainly the Ranger Raptor. Just take a look at the size of the Focus and the Escape and then compare it to the truck. Also, the Raptor R will only have 37's and those are definitely not 37's.

    Ford stacking unfinished Raptors to simply create as many MY 21's as possible?

    This is correct. Warranty starts the date you take delivery.
