    Cam phasers in your garage

    Great write up, and thanks for the pics! Mine are done, and happy to say, afterwards...No more issues. But if I ever have to do it again sans-warranty...Pics are always helpful. Thanks for posting. DC

    What raptor look do u like better? Gen 1 Gen 2 gen 3?

    As I read through these various posts....I look back at the original Title on what we are responding to. (And I still feel the same about my initial post/response). The question (with key words bolded) : "What Raptor look do u like better?" So very clearly just asking a very personal...

    What raptor look do u like better? Gen 1 Gen 2 gen 3?

    Gen 2 is my favorite all around. Really think they nailed the looks on it. All personal taste though. DC

    Good info! What are your thoughts on a truck (mine) with a Goosetune Stage 2 - 93 Octane and Water/Methanol - Upgraded I/C and TCU Tune? With the WMI boosted Octane/Cooling (and Winfield tuned for it) - Do you think it should perform similar to the E50? Just curious what your thoughts are...

    Gen 2 misfiring badly under boost/acceleration

    As others suggested...Likely going to need to have someone look at it, as it won't be correctly diagnosed on the internet/Forum. If it runs good when driving easy, and starts acting up under acceleration...That usually suggests plugs/coils in many cases, especially if it occurs in mid-range...

    EVAP Check Engine

    I do not have this set-up or issue. But based on other information, wondering if any with the issue have tried this vent tube? Seems that some AFE intakes combined with other items may cause issues. Just a thought. DC AFE Vent Tube

    GEN 2 "Diesel" idle sound warm engine?

    As some others suggested (And I am no expert), this sounds pretty normal and similar to mine. These engines are not super quiet on the outside (pretty quiet from the cabin). I have had both the software update AND the actual Cam Phasers replaced. This sound is definitely not that. DC

    What did you do to your Raptor today? (Gen2)

    Hi... Good question. Mine was tuned also using the Water Methanol spray, so similar to the alcohol set-ups and very quick! Besides the ability to get 87 Octane, my assumption is/was that with that 87 tune, it may get better gas mileage as well (I run my son all over the state for baseball and...

    What did you do to your Raptor today? (Gen2)

    Not necessary...Maybe for you?

    What did you do to your Raptor today? (Gen2)

    Yeah. I cannot afford it. Don't have enough money.

    What did you do to your Raptor today? (Gen2)

    Well...Today, I did an intentional downgrade. Flashed my Goosetuned 87 Octane tune over my Goosetuned 93/WMI custom tune to take advantage of these wonderful gas prices :)...Keep it under $200 on the fill up! It is great to have that easy feature with the COBB Access Port for sure. And easy...

    Air intake

    I have an Injen. Good quality and fit. Works well. More noise??? Maybe a little? DC

    EVAP Check Engine

    I would go over all of the joint spots and make certain they are all sealed and tightened properly. Could also run a smoke test to check. Good luck, DC

    White spots on hood vent

    I think you are all good. If it is not looking right for you...You can try the 303 Aerospace Protectant. Works great. The yahoos at my dealer "waxed" it before I picked it up and got crap all over the black...I scrubbed it with rags soaked with the 303 and it looks perfect and never came...

    Windshield Wiper Fluid/Rant

    On your WS Washer...As some others have said. Check to ensure the hose is connected at the tank, and the spray nozzles. There is also the small pump on the bottom of the tank...Be sure it is working and/or connected. Easy to replace...They just press in. I had this picture that may help you...

    My Issues Post Cam Phaser Replacement

    Should be 8 MM for the coil packs, and 5/8 INCH deep socket for the spark plugs. You can also use one of those magnetic fishing/extension tools to get them out. DC

    My Issues Post Cam Phaser Replacement

    Actually....The plugs and coils on these can be done in about 20 minutes...No kidding. Easiest I have ever seen. Just FYI DC Edit: Thought a Picture may help :)

    My Issues Post Cam Phaser Replacement

    Yeah...It is a big job to pull that front engine apart. I do most/all my own work as I enjoy it and can guarantee quality control (most times :)), but I was not going to attempt the Phaser job...Plus it was covered. I picked up my truck after the repair, and it ran great...Once it warmed up, I...

    Why is Ford so damn stupid! Oil Pan/Repairs Rant

    Hey...Thanks!...Appreciate that. It does seem to be better than the yellow plastic one! To be honest I mod the crap out of my toys (cars) and have never gotten use out of any of my warranties :) On my Jaguar F-Type R... Like a [email protected], I thought a 6 year/100,000 mile warranty sounded pretty...

    Why is Ford so damn stupid! Oil Pan/Repairs Rant

    Yes...And Yes. Metal pan is one piece. Mine has not leaked...thank goodness, and I do not want to risk it fiddling with the drain plug, etc., so I have this new design/style drain plug, that just drains through the tube, so no mess, and no tension on anything with the pan! :) Hopefully it...
