    Upgrades to support Whipple?

    I second the billet oil pump gears. I think the traction bar issue can be mitigated with a sympathetic right foot but... that's not as much fun. The shop that I had mine installed at said they've seen no issues with the Whipples they've installed. Good luck!

    I think I used the stock hardware and locations for the rear flaps and had to drill a single hole and use a machine screw on either side of the front. Rokblockz mount theirs with OEM hardware. You might find an installation video of those and could use the same method for the Rally Armors...

    Gen1 Tire & Wheel Picture Thread (upgraded) - post em up!

    Got these put on the truck on Friday. Crappy pic but I really like how they look on the truck. Volk bronze centres and Kingsport Grey on the beauty rings (I tried to match the colour of the fender flares). Note - that was not my park job, the shop tech did that!

    Roof rack - diy

    I don't have any experience with this but personally, I'd avoid the water and put it outside the rail.

    Gen1 Tire & Wheel Picture Thread (upgraded) - post em up!

    The black ones I posted the pic of are actually the stainless ones. I think they're cool but still wanna see if I can find some aluminum ones.

    Gen1 Tire & Wheel Picture Thread (upgraded) - post em up!

    Thanks! I'm trying to do something a little different with these. Found some titanium bolts in the right size but they are something like $17/piece... too much $$$. Trying to find some anodized aluminum bolts but have so far come up blank. Found some motorsports spec stainless bolts that...

    GEN 1 Daily Driving with Supercharger

    2012 truck that I just Whipple'd (Stage 1) in April with about 30,000 miles on the truck. I don't daily my truck and have only put ~600 miles on it so far. Average MPG has dropped from ~15 MPG to 14.7 MPG. I'm at 3500ft ASL elevation.

    Whipple Installed - Couple minor issues

    Couple of things to check WRT the surging, could be running lean due to: Fuel pressure (regulated by the fuel pump and regulator or a clogged filter), Restricted fuel injectors, A vacuum leak, Anything else that throws off the fuel mixture going in to the engine.

    Whipple Installed - Couple minor issues

    I recently put on a Whipple Stage 1, probably have around 600 miles on it now too. I haven't noticed any surging like you described and I don't think I have any new clanks since the SC went on. I get a hard 2-3 shift when it's cold and have had a couple hardish downshifts but nothing that...

    Gen1 Tire & Wheel Picture Thread (upgraded) - post em up!

    Got my Gen 1 beadlocks refinished and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. I want to replace the beauty ring hardware, the stock ones are a little beat up... does anyone know the thread pitch or specs of the beauty ring hardware? EDIT: Looks like they are M10-1.5

    Powdercoating Bead Lock Ring - COST?

    I just dropped off my wheels for powdercoating on Friday. Was $135/wheel plus $150 for all 4 rings... just under $700 CAD for everything.

    Weight Reduction potential

    He literally said "Bigger is better". I have to assume he was referring to weight since that was the topic of the entire thread. It's ok though, I have nothing more to add.

    Weight Reduction potential

    Newton presented three laws of motion, see below (hint: it is the second one that is most relevant to the discussion). An object at rest remains at rest, and an object in motion remains in motion at constant speed and in a straight line unless acted on by an unbalanced force. The acceleration...

    Weight Reduction potential

    Generally speaking, reducing the weight of a vehicle will improve all aspects of its dynamics (acceleration, braking, turning, mileage, wear and tear on bearings etc). It's weird that folks here seem to be "anti" weight reduction just because we are talking about a big, heavy truck - that...

    Bike Mount Options on Your Truck

    I'll have to get an updated pic with my new bike but I have been running a North Shore rack for 7-8 years now. Still really like it and would buy another one if anything ever happened to it.

    Weight Reduction potential

    If I had more money than I knew what to do with... I would like to do a sunroof delete and replace the roof with a carbon fibre panel. Similar to what BMW has done with the M cars and Porsche is now offering them too. E46 M3 Carbon Roof

    Weight Reduction potential

    Start with a SCAB with as few options as possible (sun roof and tail gate step are heavy). The easiest ways to remove weight are: - Remove spare tire - Get forged wheels and lighter AT tires - Lithium battery - Lighter exhaust - Remove running boards

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    I had that area clear bra'd when I picked up my truck after seeing the paint completely rubbed off that area on my mom's old Land Rover. That looks like a good option too.

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    LOL. Well, if it makes anyone feel better... I am poor now too :hahano: Just a smidge under 48,000 km (30,000 miles) on her now. Picked her up in December 2012.

    What did u do to your raptor today?

    Picked her up yesterday after having a Whipple slapped on. Haven't had a chance to go for much of a drive yet but am enjoying the new noises she makes!

    Never did sell the rack. It's still available if someone wants it.

    Who’s sold their Gen 1 during this market and hates the decision they made?

    With your vast experience you've probably already tried but did you turn it off and on again? Usually works for me.

    Who’s sold their Gen 1 during this market and hates the decision they made?

    I have come pretty close to selling mine a couple of times but the thing that has held me back is that there is nothing in the same price range that I would rather have. I would let it go if I had a really strong offer but that hasn't happened yet. I'm currently waiting for delivery of a...
