    I actually think it’s too quiet. But I erred on the quiet side since I drive to the southwest from Colorado to go on ROC runs and don’t need to be deaf by the time I’m there. Well see how I feel after the Mint 400 and if I need to go with smaller Magnaflow mufflers. Right now I have 2 6” round 24” long race mufflers.

    Yea, I thought it was quiet too. But like you, I like taking longer trips, so I would err on the side of caution.

    Where do you have your exhaust exiting? I think I see it above the rear axle on the passenger side, but am not for sure given the camera angle and the strap.

    The loose actuator/phaser caused damage to the phaser as well as the limiters. New parts overnighted. Livernois did make it right and is paying for the parts and labor.
    We’re also going to use the last tune and run in again on the dyno and see if there was any power loss with the head issue.

    Well, the Livernois motor performed flawlessly on the way to Vegas from Colorado. But around the halfway point the output shaft bushing and seal failed and puked out all the fluid from the transfer case. Even stopped in New Mexico at an awesome Ford dealership to see if a quick part swap would fix it but no joy. The truck would shake over 65mph. Got it checked out once we limped into Vegas and the T case was done and so was the driveshaft. All covered under the extended warranty, so on the last day I left it in Vegas and flew home. Should be done in a week or so.
    Wish I would have had more time for a good shake down but that seems to be how it always goes. Overall I couldn’t be more pleased with the motor. Runs hard and didn’t get hot or have a single issue.

    Yeah I’m currently Devers +3s, Camburg shackles, so there is about 1” more, but still within the driveshaft limits. Shame that I fucked up the lighter 1 piece drive shaft and have to go back to OEM for now. But can’t complain too much since it’s covered
