11.14.2010
gave myself an oil change. mobil 1 synthetic, k&n filter



11.22.2010-11.23.2010
ive always had a bogging/no get up and go on a cold start. so i went ahead and tried this: http://ford40.com/sputtering.shtml

left it to soak all night, dried today. there was some dirt/dust on the filaments. put it back in today along with a new maf from a cobra.
not only was there no more bogging when cold, i didnt have the slow response/bog related to having my battery unplugged and it relearning itself either.

i reccomend doing this if you have probs and notice the maf filaments are dirty.

the new maf sensor:

and the painted area behine the grille:
130_0579.jpg


i will be painting the grille, bull bar, front bumper, rear bumper all with bedliner.
and at some point paint along the sides of the truck following the top of the bumper line in bed liner



11.24.2010-11.28.2010
bed lined front bumper, rear bumper+rear sides, grill, and re-added wal-mart lights.
took off the hitch that was attached the the bumper also.

ld50 has the stock blue like that
attachment.php



this would prob be the color im looking for in the blue
medium quasar blue metallic
4




im just tryin to figure out my color now, so i can paint the engine bay and all the pulleys to start with
 


















hey xeek. do you still have your old tcase motor laying around? i need a junk one. pm me if you do.
 






cant remember if i got rid of it or not, garage is a mess so i doubt id find it right now if i do.


anyway. pick-n-pull trip. drivers light since mine broke, grey ring that goes under TB electronics. overhead console, bracket and wiring from 2nd gen. where on the grille is the temp sensor? i didnt want spend to much time cause it was raining.
not pictured: 1 V washer for valve covers
DSC_2175.jpg
 












this time i was smart enough to test it first. picked up two of the sensors also, incase i want to have an inside and outside temp.

i wont be installing this yet, to many others things going on. but there is a small chance i might
 






I've read this thread so many times but always forget to comment.

I think the yellow would be the best, but I like just not having to care about the paint/body so I don't think i'll ever end up painting mine.

Are there any local spots up there, cause I'm getting real sick of wheeling the same spots down here I'm only like 45 mins away.

i still have to wire the fan, check how its doing, get an intake(hitting the belt and hood wont close with it)
then im back to my regularly scheduled mods. :)
 
























nah its not on there lol. just messin with ya. just a 'you werent lying when you told me it was too loud for you' lol

its an open y-pipe. thats under load also, about 1.6rpm with a broken tps.
im gonna get a better idle/driving vid tomorrow in daylight now that the tps is fixed

everythings fixed in this one, but its just to dark out
 






its legal again! got everything done and got it inspected.
working out kinks in the engine. lean code after ~9 miles driven, every time i start. idle surges, fan controller issues.

complete change in the paintjob i want. cammo. pic of mickey thompsons truck of what i want
stealth150.jpg


black and most likely gunmetal. matches the black chrome parts i have on my engine
 






That'll look damn good!
Can't wait to rebuild my motor now after seeing yours.
 






used a piece of old exhaust pipe, took out the glasspack i had and made a tailpipe to exit out the side sorta. sounds much better anyway.
DSC_2285.jpg


junkyard trip. 2 auto-down window modules(still want 6 more, 2 for each window), light for drivers door, drivers door handle trim, another tranny cooler with lines.
not in picture; rear washer nozzle next to 3rd brake light, tip for the locks on rear doors, various bolts and screws
