    Why would you want to leave it stock? I bought a Raptor because I didn't want a stock F150.

    I've left my raptor mostly stock, other than the exhaust it's actually closer to stock than it was when I bought it.

    I know if I start modifying the truck it's going off the deep end in a hurry. There is a lot I would love to do to it, but I am not good at going half-way with cars.

    Besides, a raptor will never be fast. Anyone who thinks they are going to make a 6000lb truck quick on the street is delusional, or has simply never driven something with a good power to weight ratio. They are awesome in the dirt, ride well, handle long drives with ease, that's what I like mine for. I would rather spend the money on one of the other vehicles. They each have their traits, and that keeps the raptor feeling fresh and special every time I get in it.

    ummm I beat every Hyundai and and other soccer mom ride off the line... so...

    but kidding a side yeah it's definitely not fast when I compare to my old modded STi or any other fast vehicle I've owned. I like doing mods as I have time and money though, keeps things fun.

    Great insight and thanks for the replies. I can attest to once I start modding it turns into a slippery slope where I have boxes showing up way to often. I love the way the modded trucks look but I will continue my quest, which will be a hard one, to keep it as close to stock with the few mods I currently have.

    I went with the black chrome and the corsa extreme on my 2012 silver SCREW. I really like it. no drone really and its sounds tame unless you get on the throttle a lot. Cold start is like this. I kept the resonator if I ever want to swap it back in but I don't see myself doing that at this time. The only difference between the sport and the extreme is the resonator delete pipe inclusion.

    No Problem, I did save a bit on the corsa by finding it on sale at Stage3 which was the cheapest at the time and timed it with a corsa 125$ rebate. Total savings $225. Its seems like you should be able to get a similar deal if you wait/look around for it.
