    I was interested in the 10speed trans as a package not soldnon the ideql but it got the wheels turning. Still in the daydreaming stages but with a few mount mods and a adapter kit the new 7.3 Godzilla would probably put the biggest smile on my face. My 13 has 90,000 and doing fine I love the platform and don't ever plan on selling.

    Whats your thoughts on a procharger with the 5.4

    A crate 7.3l is over $11K plus labor to install/modify. The new 10sp is also almost $5k and much longer. No one in there right mind would sink $15K-$20K into a 2013.

    11,000? You can sell the cores not pay people to work on you own vehicle DIY. And once all is said and done you pull the performance parts before you scrap the vehicle if your unable to maintain your own ride. 8150 for the crate BTW.

    It's fine once you fix a few things and parts have come down for doing that.

    I love the expi and I am married to this beast plan on keeping her for atleast 10 years. I have a problem with power now that I am running 35" tires and figure that if I can get around 500ftlbs of Tq I will enjoy the ride that much more. May just need to talk with an engine guy and see what you can do with cams pistons and heads...

    Engine guy? Huh...No speed/race shop will waste time on this. The 5.4l 3v is a boat anchor.

    5.4 3V will leave your 4.6 2V ten miles in the dust.
