    My scanner is broke but I will try to get something done soon. The power comes in a lot sooner now. This would be a very close race with a stock 6.2L

    Post up all the info you can please! Any problems? How much does this part cost with install? What's your input on performance after the install was complete? Etc....

    Very curious about this mod. I really want to get this done to my rig!

    No disrespect to the op or bigj, but if I get less than 90 HP out of a cam tune etc I am not doing it...

    No disrespect taken here. However I do respectfully disagree with you. My experience with modern engines says Tank's gains are just about right for 'top end' work only.

    And even so, the numbers we've discussed so far are only max numbers. I'm willing to bet we'll see "up the curve" improvements in the neighborhood of x2 those numbers at places along the RPM scale (I'm REALLY hoping Tank did a before pull, and will then overlay the after pull so we can compare curves). My experience also says that the up the curve numbers are far more valuable/usable than the max numbers.

    Was it done on a DynoJet? Their software is free. If you get the file, you can play with the correction factors, do overlays, etc.

    I totally agree with you...for real world application you are rarely ever running at or near the peak numbers. I typically use 2500-4000 maybe 5000 rpm so that is where I would look for gains.

    I won't know the full cost everything until I get my CC statement. You will need a tune. JDM is only the company that has tuned a Raptor with my mods and we are still working out a few small problems but the tune is spot on.
    This is a simple Hot Cam. I have not touched any other part of the motor with a good set of heads I could get the other 50 HP but I was shooting for 300HP also it was well over 90 degrees and very humid also this is only on 87 octane with E85 or 93 octane you could get bigger gains.
    I don't have a before dyno graph. I'm going to ask JDM for some info on there 5.4L they've dyno.
    No it was a dyno dynamics
    No they have a mustang dyno and I will never give them my money.
    Peak HP is at 5300 RPM and Peak TQ is at 3750 RPM

    Next mod will be a new intake that uses a GT500 style throttle body. I'm looking into a custom sheet metal intake.

    Thanks. I really think the potential of the N/A 5.4L has been over looked because of no performance F-150 until now and the 3v 4.6L response very well to mods there was no reason to look to the 5.4L for added displacement.
