Originally it was supposed to be a fuel economy truck since I’m moving from Florida to California but since I don’t own any motorcycles or race cars right now the Tuner bug bit me. Again. So that is my real reason. Now I know you probably want to stir the pot so I’ll act like I meant to buy it like I had these plans in mind. So let’s start this carnival ride up. 
Reason

1. Diesel and 6.2 way more expensive. If I was trying to get the new body style I can’t afford a $75,000 Trucks and still tune it. 

2. Why not help out the R&D in smaller engines Ford has an Ecoboost in the Raptor and the Ford GT. They seem to be pretty dang fast

3. Can’t get a 1500 with a spinny boy. Unless you get the 5.3 and add twins. That’d be cool, but that’s a ****** ton of money in parts and tuning. 

4. The conversational aspect of “yeah it’s a 4cyl turbo” Gets a lot more attention then the old played out V-8.

5. Plus I like hearing that little turbo spool. It makes me smile. 
But seriously there wasn’t any parts available for this truck when I got it and didn’t plan on doing anything to it. Now that I am I’m just trying to spread my experience and knowledge so that of people want to upgrade they can get some answers from and idiot like me that just happens to like turning wrench’s. 

This was a great reply!

 

I just got a 21 Custom 1500 4cyl all black "Rally Edition"

It's the exact truck I wanted and I waited about 3 months for the dealer to find me one.

I don't really do truck stuff, I don't haul anything, I don't off road, I live in Queens and drive upstate often (about 350 miles) so this truck is perfect for me!!

 

I enjoy making minor modification so the Momentum GT Cold Air Intake System w/Pro 5R Filter looks like an interesting little upgrade.

I’ve already gone ahead and swapped out the muffler on mine went with just a resonator at first but it sounded like a shitty Tacoma. The turbo on the other hand was screaming. Loved that part but ende

I’m interested in seeing what my MPG will look like after the intake especially after I just put 35’s on 20’s with a 6 inch lift kit. Cause right now I’m looking at 14mpg. I drive fast so don’t think

Got the Afe intake installed on mine 2 weeks ago and it has gained about 1mpg as well in mixed driving.

Did you ever get the intake?  I have it installed. It’s a pretty decent upgrade. The engine sounds better, pulls harder and all around feels smoother.
