    But know I'm finally going to put it on my truck. I went to RoushYates Performance Parts today to see about making some adaptor plates for me. I'm probably going to use an L&M twin 66 mm throttle body.

    You have no fear when it comes to modifying your Raptor. Keep us posted on the work and results.

    Stock is the baseline not the benchmark. There is always more for improvement.

    As long as your disposable income supports (1) the mods and (2) losing most of the warranty that comes with the vehicle. Good for you! :thumbsup:

    Warranties are overrated and I haven't done anything that should cause a huge problem with the truck. With that being said I'm starting a plan for building a high compression 5.4L stroker motor.
    I waiting on RoushYates to get back with me about the plates. That intake manifold is designed for the 4.6L the width of the V is my hold up right now and well I need to figure out a new CAI.

    We're all interested and pulling for you to be wildly successful with this. Can't wait to see what you get from the 5.4L motor!

    That would look incredible under the hood. I'm really thinking about doing a big inch high compression n/a for mine when the time and money comes, probably never seeing as my Lightning is always a work in progress lol. But your Raptor has some great mods and I really enjoy reading about your mods. FFS
