    Got my first snag... The intercooler reservoir mount points do not line up with my 2010 SCAB. I have a hunch that the mount points were for the 2011-2014 Gen1. Not the OG 2010..

    Was thinking of taking the reservoir to someone who can remove and weld a new plate so I can mount it to my truck. Then it hit me.. I spent over 10K getting this Stage 2 kit.. They must have one what will fit for the 2010 Scab right? Opened a support ticket over the weekend.. Waiting for a response.....

    Sweet man, Congrads!

    let the assembly commence!
    looks like you might need to drill a few holes.
    Will be sweet.

    One suggestion, ask whipple about options for the stock fan. I wish I would have done that on mine when I sent it in for reflash.

    I posted a response on the other thread:

    Ford changed the hole locations in the frame for the 2011-2014 models.
    So us 2010 1/2 owners will have drill holes to make the newer larger HE kit (designed in 2013) bolt up.

    I have my relays in the engine bay right behind the radiator on the drivers side.
    You can put them anywhere you want (may have to add wire), but try to keep them from getting soaked.

    I was afraid of that... Guess I'll need McGyver something for the IC reservoir.
    For now this is where I placed the relays until I can truly make up my mind as to where I should these relays... I had to open a ticket to Whipple because I cant (aside from cut/splice) connect the 2 relays units. They are of the same type, either male/male or female/female pig tail connectors :) Hate to cut and splice on a solid wiring harness.

    @mindgame100

    The fans are upside down, you could hide all that wiring better if you rotate the two as a pair to the bottom.
    You could potentially get water in the fan motors.

    Are you running a K&N filter or just the K&N filter wrap? Could I get the model you are using?

    Yeah I know!!! Its been bugging me also... I'm pretty much gonna redo it, however, if you look at the documentation I got. The RED ARROW points to the top mounting brackets.. So I just followed what was suggested by Whipple..
