Oh, and not even 5,000 mles on my truck yet and my valves already look like shit.  I've changed the oil 3 times.

These trucks are direct injected, they don't get the benefit of the atomized fuel cleaning the valves as it enters the cylinders. A good pcv catch can is almost a necessity.

I did get my New Handheld  tuner and base tune in today, so at least I'll be able to drive to Maine for my dyno tune.

So my new manifold showed up today, (in a Roush Racing box :sick:) so I got the installed finished.  Pretty straight forward, here's a bunch of pictures.

Blower. The seal is and o ring that fits in a grove on the manifold. It was a pain in the ass to seat:

Pullies

And done. I added the Gates HD belt, it came with a regular Gates belt.

The SLP intake it came with. I'd rather use the stock airbox, but I'll have to rig something up later for that.
