advice on lightning spring time mods

ladies/gents,

I'm going to be starting looking at getting all my mods ordered for spring and i was wondering if you could lend any advice to a fairly new L owner as these will be my first mods to the truck since i've owned her:

starting off, i already have a FTVB, 4#lower, JLP intake, JLP traction bars, SCT chip, magna-flow exhaust, autometer boost gauge (all done by previous owner).

I am looking at going to a 6# lower, afco dual pass intercooler rad w/ fans, SCT 90mm MAF, SCT chip (multiple tunes) and a tune from steeda in milton ontario, stiegemeier port w/ rotor strip and snout rebuild, clean the intercooler, new plugs (TR6) gapped to .034, drive shaft loop, autometer A/F gauge – fuel pressure gauge and aeroforce interceptor gauge, new fuel filter, and nitto 555DR’s. possibly a line lock kit too (is this really needed?)

My only other mod is possibly going w/ an upper pulley. I am unsure of what to go w/ or if it’s even worth it, and obviously I need a tensioner as there will be more belt slip.
Also, how much extra belt size is needed if you add a tensioner on?


Any input is appreciated!!
Oh, and I do plan on owning my L for a long time, and I don’t see a build motor or whipple/KB in the near future.

Thanks,
Sean

i dont know how the tranny brake would work for burnouts (thats what my line lock would be used for). i dont know if i really even need it, i just do little burnouts and i can make the tire light up w/o holding the brakes.

i looked up Spearco and they do make an intercooler for the Lightning...$1,000 though, and just for the intercooler...no fans....i wish i had that kind of $$

thanks for the info so far gents....really appreciate it! and its more than im getting on svtperformance and f150online....damn americans dont like helping us canadians!!!!

I have absolutely no advice, but I'd sure like to hear it and see it scoot down the track...

If you are gonna run slicks then you'll need a driveshaft loop installed. NHRA rules or they wont let you run. At least they are not supposed too. And Smoke if you wanna win ALL the time then you can race me and my blazingly fast 18s turtle But just remember I do tend to hit walls so watch out


Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!
