    Great looking truck and a solid build plan. Can't go wrong with a Gen 1 in my opinion... especially an SE (but I might be biased) ;)

    Maybe because he doesn't like the V6 sound as well as it being a massive flush of cash? "fully built out gen 1s just ripping it up and sounding amazing."

    You can do all the same suspension stuff to a Gen 2, but it will never sound amazing- unless you put a V8 in it too.

    You guys see the MACH E 1400 nonsense with Gitton Jr and Ken Block that came out a few days ago? After 5 minutes of the electric motor squealing sound, the twin turbo V8 Mustang sounded ab-so-lutley fucking glorious.



    The wonderful sounds begin at 12:00 into the vid.

    Nice.

    That building is gay as hell though. This is the proper way to paint a building.

    Love it. I bought it with the supercharger already on there so I don't know the difference between stock vs. supercharged, but it will pull in 6th gear going up a mountain pass at 65 mph. The only down side is the intercooler blocks all the airflow to the tranny cooler, so I have to back off after awhile of aggressive on/off road driving to let the tranny temp go down. I'm currently trying to figure out how to solve for that.
