I was notified that I should do a build thread for my 1000's of questions. So Here we gooooooo!

Truck is a 2012 Screw FX4 with currently 120k on the odometer. Motor/trans was replaced at 55k under warranty. I had to rebuild the complete rear axle at 115k (new bearings, ring, pinion, e locker). New Front Brake pads/rotors at 100k, new rear brake pads at 115k.

I tow a 9500-10000k TT Camper all over with it, I also have a 24' V Nose Race trailer I tow all over with it. The truck has been in a few truck pulls and is a regular stop light racer. It hauls my family, groceries, and the mail when the skinny pedal is pushed.

I personally think it was hydro lock, it was a hot day and i didnt have the pee hole in the Cac then. It was right when i stood on it getting on a interstate, actually on my way to the hospital for an emergency.

So why did they delete the mounting tab on the turbo? Seemed like a good idea to have them, and it would help take stress off the manifolds.

Nice setup. How do you like the raptor takeoffs. I have been searching forever for a set because I want them badly. Did you have any rub with them or trimming needed. My research tells me no with 2” level. Big mpg hit? Looking like 12lbs more a wheel/tire increase over my current setup.

Actually MPG is the same or slightly better than my 20's with 6 ply 33" tires. They are a lot lighter than the 20's. And with the extra side wall, it rides SOOOO much better. They only rub on my lower valance when backing and turning 1 direction, i think actually my bumper is pushed slightly back on that side, so i may just need to tweak it a bit, they fit with room to spare is the moral of the story.

Looks like 10% off is the going rate. So the next question is what pump to get 35 or 60. I see there's an Evo pump now that's in between.

Anythoughts or recommendations from experience. I'm not sure what the limitations on each really are for power on gas and how far you can go on ethanol

I ended up buying a XDI Evo pump. So in the middle. Well see what kind of power I can put down.
