Congrats on the house, my condolences on the marriage, they are way expensive (just joking, congrats on that too!) What type of supercharger you going with? I build adapters now. If you need help/advice, let me know...

Still planning to start with the M62 and use the BBK plenum adapter for now. Later I may go on to an M90.

I have no plans to make big power, just want to use the BBK setup because is a rare kit and uses the stock throttle body and everything.

Not blown up yet.lol. I did take it for a quick spin, but it's parked until I get my tuner unlocked and have it tuned.

Only parts left to install are longer plug wires and the big fuel pump.

Any recommendations on people/places that could tune this thing on SCT? OH, IN, KY, PA, MI are all within reason for me.

Dually got some love too, fire wall reinforcement, Saginaw swap, and brought home half of the dually suspension

Plan is 3/5 drop, Bronco bucket seats, and Hydroboost, then it should be basically done besides TLC.

No idea where I left off with little baby blue (AKA Perry)

But it's on beams, axle flip, 8.8 swapped, some PTM, and still sporting winter attire.

Only recent updates we're new winter wheels (no more cop car wheels) and I added aux input to the factory radio.

Plan is to buy 5.0 Explorer donor as soon as we close on a house.lol

Do you still have the 150?

Yup, it needs love. Starting loosing oil pressure last fall at low RPMs, so I want to pull engine and throw a pump in it. If that fixes it (it doesn't use oil or knock) then I'll also upgrade to a serpentine belt drive and maybe MAF engine management.....if it's still shit, then I'll probably run it until it pops and put something cool in it like a 4bt. (Other option is pull the 460/ZF from the dually for it....then DT360 swap the dually)

Right now it's sitting in the garage on mismatched rollers while I try to polish the Alcoas back out. It sat too close to the road in my driveway and got some salt spray on the raw aluminum wheels while I was working on the Ranger and dually in the garage

Looks like some 'schotty' fab to me!

The stuff you come up with never ceases to amaze me.

Quick update... finally threw the fuel pump in, loaded up and had it tuned. It has some throttle response now and has no issues spinning the 37s. No dyno numbers yet...but soon.

Dually got some upgrades too, 3/4 drop, bucket seats, NOS headlights, 4.10 LS rear, and a gear splitter. Also picked up some 19.5 steel wheels for inner duals when I find some 19.5 Eagles

Here are pictures in no real order...

I was just wondering the other day what you’ve been up to. You never disappoint. How do you like the gear splitter?

It's great with the 4.10s, had some issues with it at first, but nothing to major, just a bad seal and the shift motor pooped out.

Its not the typical 20k GVWR GV unit, it found a 35K GVWR US Gear Dual Range unit for a 4x4 Ford application, so it bolted right up between my F-SD park brake and 4x4 trans.

I didn't get any of the controls or time delay with it, so I bought an old school Eaton 2 speed axle limit switch setup and converted it to that style. I had to put a bump in the floor pan to clear, so I used a section of 92+ Ford floor pan and the newer rubber flooring too.

Forgot I added a NOS 80s Ford keyless entry too....

Also we replaced the IDI farm truck, bumped up to a 450 SD....that already broke down once.lol. Bad wheel bearing in the Dana 80 let the axle shaft rub until it snapped off....so we upgraded to a Dana 135.
