    2008 SPORTRAC - BACKUP CAMERA AND RADIO

    In the past I used to shove it through an existing grommet but had some issues this time around so I drilled a small hole near the emergency brake cable and installed a grommet. Ran a 2 pair shielded wire (one pair for reverse light trigger wire, one pair for video signal) to the back of the...

    2008 SPORTRAC - BACKUP CAMERA AND RADIO

    Not sure if you started or finished your install. I am almost done with my install in an 08 limited. Pioneer AVH-2550NEX (CarPlay and Bluetooth) Back up camera mounted at the bottom of the license plate frame. Was trying to use my factory sub and ran in to the sub pop due to 12v remote that...

    Recommendations for Replacement Stereo/GPS/Bluetooth Unit

    I personally ordered something from parts-express, it’s a little bigger but does the same. https://www.parts-express.com/lm317-dc-dc-buck-converter-5v-6v-9v-12v-24v-voltage-step-down-module-linear-regulator--320-617 I could have just ordered a 7805 step down and made it myself. Needing only 3...

    Recommendations for Replacement Stereo/GPS/Bluetooth Unit

    Wish I would have found this before doing my install. 1.5k resister will do the trick for the pop? I'll look for one. I was looking at step down converters but thought they were a little bulky for the amount of space I have. I did see they sell kits for the Sport Trac with a resister and it got...

    1.25" wheel adapters/spacers....pros and cons?

    I would also say make sure your rear wheels have an offset that compensates for the rear spacer. 0 offset rims and 50mm spacer = not good for tire wear or rear end. I say this from personal experience from my last set of wheels and tires.

    Cure for rapid flashing turn signals after installing LED light bulbs.

    Went to 3 places to get the flasher switch, only to end up at Ford finding that the 6-pin (what I had from factory) was the same as the 5-pin... bunch of bs especially with a 115% higher price than the store. Come to find out nothing was wrong with the lights, some sort of fluke happened...

    Cure for rapid flashing turn signals after installing LED light bulbs.

    I would just like to say that I put led bulbs for the rear signals only... and needless to say an issue came up... eventually the clicking from signaling went back to normal speed, come to find out my rear signals no longer work, but the fronts do I am hoping it is just the flasher because if...

    Pics of Sub Boxes

    Went from the fist picture to the second Im considering doing something smaller to get some of my cargo space back. or something that would protect the subs from anything thats loose in the back. Also something that would conceal a lot more of the wiring.

    Need Advice on Supercharging

    The guy that did my tranny told me there were 2 ways to adjust the engagement, one can be undone the other cannot. He couldnt adjust it through my cars computer because its a 97 computer with 98 programing (from factory). He did a mild engagement on the shift and said he could make it harsher...

    Need Advice on Supercharging

    If you ever want a bigger crank pulley I was talking to someone but could not acquire the information needed for the guy to make a pulley. He said he would be more than willing to attempt making a larger pulley but he would need to know from the front of the dampener how far out the new grooves...

    Need Advice on Supercharging

    Yeah I got to see if my friend will test my truck with the charger to see if it will pass and then use the Powerdyne CARB number if it is needed.

    Need Advice on Supercharging

    Car has to pass a visual inspection, you could fail just for having the wrong exhaust setup. Theres too much to look in to for smog here.

    Got to hate CA and pollution controlled states for that. How much HP/TQ does the Powerdyne add anyway?

    Need Advice on Supercharging

    *EDIT* I was only able to find 3 bolts, the oil stick bolt/stud one and 2 of the regular ones that seem to be slightly different lengths, not sure if some were actually different lengths or maybe there was a difference between the first sets sold and second sets.

    I think I have an extra set of bolts that I had from the first set of TMH that I was sent that had the EGR but sent that back and got an all new kit from Bob when he sent me the non EGR headers. They got maybe a few weeks of use, if you want the bolts just let me know and ill go looking for them...
