    Check the tire pressure, put a hidden camera in the truck, maybe she's racing corvette's on the way to the beauty parlor?

    I mean it is a cheap added hp increase. Your NA V-8 will prolly respond well to it. I know my mustang did. Not sure how ideal it is for desert running however you take it to the strip will cut down your 1000’ or 1/4 mile times.

    I had nos on my Mustang 40 years ago, lol, back then bolt it on and press the button, nowadays, it takes a computer genius to keep the motor from grenading. wouldn't just trust any tune for that on a raptor.

    i still run an 80shot on my bike. being fuel injected its not as bad as it used to be. especially with a dry system. its a bit more stable, just a little lag time is all. a wet system you can blow the engine pretty quick still

    In my experience there is one and only one mileage improvement (or mileage destroying) device on a 6,000 pound 4x4 truck with a large displacement V8 under the hood: The Right Foot.
