Random thought of the day.... maybe time to sell off the SHO and grab something different.....

Hmm why the change of heart! Z  ???

I might be interested in an ecoboost raptor....

Have you ever driven one? The only way I can describe it, is to take a kitchen chair and place it on top of your bed. Then try to sit on it. They are awesome trucks but they have so much suspension travel it feels odd cornering. Especially coming from a car that handles ok and reacts decent.

Not yet, dealerships are not letting people walk in and drive one.... around here anyway...

Looking around for a used one that I can test drive.

Also looking at a Tahoe as well... one of my favorite all time vehicles I owned was an 04 Tahoe LT w/autoride... had every option... 167K miles and still sounded like a well running sewing machine..

Yeah Rich Yaklin did a test years back.  He did Mdesign, stock, Airaid.  They were all in within less than a tenth.  With old IC, car never ran a 12.3 time in June.  It was always in October.

God this make my decision between i/c and hpfp even harder. I canít do both this year itís one or the other.

I havenít driven an ecoboost one. So they may be different. A buddy of mine bought a 6.2 raptor to tow his race car. He had it 2 years and got rid of it for an f-350. He ended up buying a bigger enclosed trailer and raptor couldnít tow it. He was an idiot though you donít buy a raptor to tow with.

Very hard indeed.  We all need both.  They go hand in hand for sure.  It's easier for me to go without the HPFP in the interim because I have meth. 

Meth+IC would be roughly 1,700.  Hope that doesn't make your decision MORE complicated

The ECU wants to pull fuel bc it doesnt know Meth exists.....so even after reducing my volume of Meth it still just pulls a little fuel......so if I had the HPFP right now...so long as I'm still spraying Meth it would continue to cut some fuel.

Yea, if I sell the SHO it would have to be private party... most likely to someone in the community. No dealer is gonna want to take a trade on something that has been modified to the extent of mine. Not matter how good it runs/looks.

Yea, that pretty much nails it....

Couple a couple things left on the SHO... get the tuning ironed out, and the low pressure fuel pump addressed(pump has been developed, waiting on Matt to finalize it)... once thatís done, the car is pretty much good to go..  The AOL tune puts down 450awhp on 93 pump gas...  the E30 with the upgraded low pump will be 500awhp...

Upgraded trans/PTU/RDU/motor would cost more money than the car is worth lol... so project would be done more or less....

I go back and forth on offloading the SHO every couple months lol.

Its almost like a "Get out while you can" type deal.  If you keep it you know you'll keep going.  But still even if you end up putting more money into the car than what some KBB says it's worth....overall it might be the same price as a corvette....although be able to beat a Corvette....can beat a Corvette now...you know what I mean though.  It's still a great piece for anyone's treasure chest if you keep it.

I am fast approaching the 70K marker on the SHO and was thinking to change the Accessory Drive and Alternator A/C Belts for a peace of mind! There are 2 Belts IIRC! I will try to tackle these belts by next week!  Z

There should be only one, the serpentine  coz no power steering pump.  The poly v is the better choice of the two listed in your post,  premium grade if you will.
2007 Ford Edge SEL, Powerstop F/R Brake Kit, TXT LED 6000K Lo & Hi Beams, W16W LED Reverse Bulbs, 3BSpec 2.5w Map Lights, 5W Cree rear dome lights, 5W Cree cargo light, DTBL LED Taillights

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!
