2012 f150 3.5 platinum 4x4
Just dropped the tank. Time to get busy!
No, I've always been a solo kinda guy.Do you have anyone helping you?
@Stickerslapper2pointo modified a LPFP Assembly (as did I as well as a couple others). Now he is installing the modifed LFPF into his fuel tank. Mine is going in on August 11.wait I missed it, what are you doing?
Glad to hear its working good. We are installing my new assembly today. Already got the revision for the lpfp pump setup and 3 bar map from torrie. Emailed him last night and got it 8 minutes after. Can wait to get this in and dialed inAlright all-right..!
I gently "tossed" the lpfp in over last weekend and had torrie send over a revision Monday after do data logging with the new pump. .
I have had all week driving back and forth to jobs.
There is a lot , And I do mean A LOT for us to talk about here.
Before we get all hot and heavy into all the stats, and pros and this-isis and thats, I am going to wait until Grim gets his in on the 11th of aug..
Grim went with walbro( my 1st choice )
I went with the dw400. .
Curious what differences ( if any ) that are noticed!.
There will be tons of data shared, and tons of pics uploaded for anyone that is curious as to the process.
I will leave you with this.
It's not the same truck it was the week before.
And to all a wonderful weekend, ho ho ohhhh, wait it's just now Aug, and I'm not santi -Claus!
You guys have a good weekend!
So you are saying you are noticing a 2.5mpg (about 25%) increase in fuel economy due to the bigger LPFP?Um, that ah skinny pedal to the right,
Yeah that one, you know the one that has put smiles on your face since you were a wee lad. Yeah, just mash that for a few hrs.
Problem solved. 😆🤣🤣.
Eco my butt!! Pulling 13mpg with the e30 tune . Ahhhh play things
Was 10.5 before the pump install tho.
I havent ran any of my other tunes yet,So you are saying you are noticing a 2.5mpg (about 25%) increase in fuel economy due to the bigger LPFP?
Maybe the PCM can finally give the CORRECT amount fuel due to the higher flow rate of the LPFP.
It will be interesting if I too notice an increase in fuel economy. I am not expecting any. But I am due for a happy surprise (instead of the crappy surprises I seem to get).
I think the same myself. Even with pure gas fuel, I always had a dip in lower rpms. And I could not run any high concentration that E20 without a big dip.I havent ran any of my other tunes yet,
But on this one particular tune yes about a 2.5 mpg increase in mpg.
One thing i have noticed, is that my pulse width was cut in half.
Before it was having to puke fuel at near 14,000 milsec.( or whatever the value is named ) and now I am seeing 6-8k . That is half the time open, allow a finer spray, better atomization, ( less fuel ) .
I was only monitoring the values on hard hits or wot, but i would think it corrected the pulse width across the board.
One thing to keep in mind, i am not saying or suggesting that a swapping out a new oem pump with this pump will generate the same results, i am quite certain that I had a weaker pump from the day bought this truck. ( used mine you ) .
It always seemed like there should be a little more there. ( i have always had a kinda " in tune" thing with my fun vehicles)
Also, i was showing dips in my 1st rev. 93 perf. Tune. .
At the time i didn't think much about it. But looking back things started adding up.
I am curious, ( and this is purely out of curiosity, not judging choice)So we have completed tuning the truck for 93 with some water meth spraying in the boost tube about half way down for cooling. We hit the limit of 93 octane which is probably less here in Canada our fuel hasn’t been the greatest. Ill be moving on to e30 within the next week or two. Truck is consistent. Last year i ran a 13.8 on factory turbos and factory fueling with lighter rims and tires, tailgate, tonneau and bed matt removed. I did a dragy pull this morning at full weight launching at 2200rpm with only a 1/4 tank of fuel and hit a 13.44 at 6460lbs when i weighed it right before i ran it. With the weight taken back off and lighter rims and tire im sure i can hit low 13’s maybe knock on a 12.9ish using 93 octane. Fueling so far has been stable with the lift pump upgrade.
My mods are
-Tuned by torrie at unleashed tuning
-Jd performance solutions lpfp setup with a walbro 535 pump
-snow performance water meth stage 2.5 with a #6 nozzle
-borg warner upgraded turbos
-full race intercooler and tial bov
-exedy upgraded clutches and steels in the trans
-oem ported manifolds
-sp542 plugs gapped at 0.026
-factory cat delete
-factory muffler delete
So the exhaust system is all 2.5” until it flares up to 3” where it used to exit the oem muffler
-ams turbo adapters
-3 bar map sensor

It took me 3 years roughly before i even touched anything exhaust related on the truck. I listened to multiple setups in person locally on other trucks and online. The one thing that that seemed to be the common denominator was piping size making it sound not great up high. So I started with a muffler delete which then i want more turbo noise so i had the cats removed leaving only the factory resonator. It’s honestly the best sounding eco ive heard. Even the v8 guys compliment it. Good deep low tone and no rasp when under wot doesn’t seem to restrict power it made 436hp on the second last revision with factory turbos and 618 peak torqueI am curious, ( and this is purely out of curiosity, not judging choice)
What made you go with the exhaust set up you did. ? You have big money into this build, why did you choose to just section in the factory exhaust?
Does it sound good this way?
Main reason I am asking i have been looking into exhausts since the day i bought this and still havent pulled the trigger, but I am finally get tired of not hearing the motor accelerate, that was a HUGE part of the driving experience, and its gone, ( I actually like using the manual valve body in our trucks, but i cant hear the motor so i have to look to shift.. ( seriously strange when you grew up doing it by sound ).
Any ways started looking at exhausts again and saw what you posted and was wondering your thoughts on that approach with the exhaust.
Would you be willing to send me a quick vid, or sound file to my inbox.It took me 3 years roughly before i even touched anything exhaust related on the truck.

In a couple weeks though im switching it up to new gen catless raptor true dual 3” downpipes which will go into a hpipe and 2 vibrant ultra quiet 3” resonators then the bumper in the back will be notched out on each side for rear exit tips. Im hoping it sounds good if not ill put the current setup back on
