    2013 FX4 - Black Betty

    I figured it was about time to make my own build thread. I have been here since 2015 and have owned a 2011 Ecoboost and now my 2013 ecoboost I have dubbed Black Betty. Just for you guys who get up in arms about naming a truck. I have owned by black FX4 for about two years now. The intended purpose of this vehicle is a multiuse form of transportation but not limited to race truck, fishing truck, mudding truck, and grocery getter and of course, occasionally a snow plow lol.

    The craziest thing I have done in my truck was probably in Wyoming. Me and my buddy went down a washboard road filled with ruts, muds, and rocks and were a little excited. So I clocked about 100-110 mph for about 20 mins playing Ford Raptor lol

    Current mods:
    Wagner Intercooler w/Turbosmart BOV
    Stant OE thermostat
    Moto Metal MO970 18x10 -24mm offset
    Cooper Discoverer ATP 275/70/18
    BCB Adaptive Octane Tune
    Boostking 91 Tune (still working on)
    Flowmaster outlaw series exhaust
    Red LED interior ambient lighting
    Bilstein 5100 shocks (Max level)
    Powerstop Z36 pads - Drilled and slotted rotors
    Rotella T6 5W-40

    Future mods:
    SA Raptor transmission cooler
    Downpipes (maybe)
    Swap out for a different exhaust. Thinking a Corsa.
    Fluid maintenance.
    AFE rear diff cover
    Rock Lights
    Handkraftd Carbon Fiber steering wheel

    Things that are bothering me:
    Got some turbo flutter/loud wastegates. Turbo may be on the way out.
    IWE occasional grinding (Already been at dealer for that - hub replaced)

    More to come..

    Thank you! I can't wait until it clears up and we have sun and no more snow. I want to get a good 3 step in on it and possibly a ceramic coating to really make it look good!

    Got my SA Raptor trans cooler in.. dented and bent and a lot of bent fins. First time I have ever had an issue with Tasca Parts. Sent them an email this morning so I will see how fast they fix the issue.

    I can definitely appreciate the blacked out look! I bet it's such a pain to wash but when you get it just right it's a beaut!

    First black vehicle. I still am in love with it!
    With Colorado weather it is hard to find the "right" time to wash it. We have rain the next 2 days then some snow. So I am going to deep clean the interior I guess?!

    They are from ebay. The first set I had a condensation issue with and they replaced them and really sealed them up good and have not had an issue sense. I really like the style. For me they are exactly what I want. They are very bright in the day and especially at night lol they get people's attention.
