Thanks for the info!
Awesome!TXRV went home yesterday so I can now share pics! Video will be up later today. 02 E450 V10, 6" lift on 33s (295/70/17 front, 255/85/16 rear) Stage 2 front axle with 4.56 gears and the RSC upgrade, NV271, 1350CVs front/rear, Trailready front wheels, rear wheels blasted & coated to match the front. Fox 2.0s, all of the usual UJ goodies.
I've wanted to supercharge a 5.4 for a LONG time but we haven't done it. Like Rob said, gears are a huge factor for the 5.4s. How much weight are you pulling? Tuners will only do so much, the biggest benefit is the transmission shift points. Lets see what gears it currently has, most likely 3.73. With the 4x4 swap I like to give 5.4s some gear. 4.56 or 4.88 for 35s. I had a 5.4, 6" on 35s with 4.88s and it was great. Occasionally pulled a trailer.Chris. Ok. I finally got the green light (from the wife) to convert my van to a 4x4 but I still have some struggles to overcome to do so. Specifically my 5.4 liter sucks at towing, and I plan to tow a good bit. I did put a tune on this thing but the shift points are all messed up and it would only tow a trailer into a headwind at 60 mph on a slight uphill. I looked into a diesel conversion but that worries me for a lot of reasons. I have a 2013 btw. So... I want to help this engine breath in and out better, but I wanted to see if you know of any super or turbo chargers that fit these motors? Heck. Actually any noticeable performance options to increase towing powered would be deeply appreciated.
I know this is somewhat out of your wheelhouse, but I figured if anyone has seen folks deal with these motors/vans, you are the guy. Heck, even Sportmobile in Austin is starting to defer calls to you.
Thanks! Video is uploading now.TXRV is by a long shot my favorite motorhome that you've had on here, Chris. Wow. That just looks so good!
Ya, it has to be hard to make money on "your" kit when buyers can get everything but the brackets from you.One of the beauties of the coil kit was the simplicity and off the shelf parts so I threw that out the window, ha.
Next on my list is radius arms that will help it flex, these stock pieces are terrible.
Sorry but I don't understand what you're talking about. The fact that I sell MGs kit? And add my gear logo so I can ID the kit as being sold by us for future tech/warranty or upgrades in case the van changes hands?Ya, it has to be hard to make money on "your" kit when buyers can get everything but the brackets from you.
Carli already makes some sweet radius arms (https://www.carlisuspension.com/ford-fabricated-radius-arms.html) and im sure you could buy those and slap your logo on them to resell.
