I swear I have seen the 5OH plate around a few times. On any of the local Ecoboost/Sho groups?

I am not. I go to the Pavilions a couple of times a month and troll the Mustang guys. Usually when I am in the SHO I am looking for trouble.

Hi guys.  Just finished up Gearhead Intercooler install, and Turbosmart waste gate actuators.  Went pretty well.  Rear actuator was a pain in the butt, big time.  My arms and hands took it rough.  Also did complete fluid change maintenance.  FYI, the ECU doesn't like it when you run the car threw the gears while on jack stands.  Got very grumpy.  After back on the ground, I ran it up and down the road infront of our place, straighten everything out.    I did a couple of short runs and the new IC and meth injection are going to work nicely together.  Got AIT2 to drop 5 degrees below ambient.  Also boost fluctuated alot less now, and not spiking as bad during shifts.  No track time till after FORD Nationals.
I love those actuators. Boost is more immediate. I can't wait for to start data logging for GH to tune my meth/Intercooler.

I don't think anyone has done that before but it makes a lot of sense why it would be beneficial to have it pre each turbo, post intercooler and pre throttle body.  Covering every base and ensuring so serious cooling all around.  Water/meth or 100% meth?

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

100% meth. Can't wait to have GH tune it hotter. My LMS meth tune is fine with it.

And windows out these wittle turbos heat the air charge up quite and bit making them far less efficient and harder in the turbo. Cool the charge via wet compression at the source of the heat, should make the turbos life easier. And great intercooler and post ic meth is awesome, but does nothing for the temps and stress placed on the turbos, having to compress super hot air.

Installed new one step colder Motorcraft SP-542 spark plugs today and always use a dab of Anti-seize and dielectric grease for good measures..

The engine was warm to the touch but Somehow each and every plug was stuck on tight and would not budge,but fortunately used an old Canoe Aluminum paddle for torque which came in handy with little to minimal effort needed in removing those stubborn plugs and a must have for any DIY! Z

I have these wild fears of plugs breaking off in the head LOL.  I like to let penetrating oil do the work.  Do have to clean up after, not an easy job.
