Thank you both.
The same engine is in the Mustang 2.3 and Focus RS.
I know it is tuned differently and hope it drives sportier in those cars.
I have not pushed it hard yet being under 500 miles still but my stock GTI was more smooth and aggressive. A Tuned GTI is much better.
I think a JB4 type tuner would help a lot.
If fun to drive a truck with so much tire.
Pot holes? What pot holes?

That hp increase will make that truck a sleeper.

Another Tuning company (5 Star) out of Texas has a video out.
0-60 from a 7.4 to a 5.4.
So if you see an F5 on a Ranger’s bed side, drive accordingly.
I think 5 stars is a plug tune also. Might be wrong, how only looked at it some
JB4 should bring a lot with all the Golf R and GTI years of Tuning and from forum members comments, good service

Head gasket I think related to RS only. Fixed with the correct head gasket being used. Similar engines but Mustang and Ranger engines each a little different. Mustang makes 310hp while Ranger makes 270hp. Ranger programmed for torque at lower rpm. Good info to know engine can run more hp.

I am not native to Tennessee so I have a little ways to go before I fit your picture. But I am thinking of a topper. Guess it means I am getting old.

Added new Raptor grill lights. Well made and decided the 4 light better than 3. Amber light goes with Saber paint.

Cabin Pre-filter Change.

This will the the second time I have changed my pre-filter.
This is from Ali-express and a VW option in some countries.
I think it keeps larger bugs and trash out of the main cabin filter.
Helping it to last longer and filter air better.

I originally learned about this from forum member "Sabo".
He actually sent and extra one to me. I order a few filters a while back that had carbon in them to help with smells. I thought they fit but are a little short.
So in order to use I cut up one filter to make up the length. I think it will work.

A low cost mod.
On my first page should be a link to my original install for more details.
