Charge pipes installed. Probably not much gain on the intercooler to throttle body but definitely on the turbo to intercooler side. Reused the stock clamp on the throttle body as it was almost impossible to install the clamp included. Also a restriction in the large pipe with the turbulence vanes or whatever you want to call them. I checked and with the GFB DV+ it just barely clears the underhood insulation.

Nice. Is that setup designed for the Mustang?

I installed mine last night...got the hot side on thinking that was the harder one to tackle...the cold side was a bear and you're right, no way to use their clamps...all just TOO SMALL. The electric connector on GFB does touch the liner as I can see a slight print. Would've been nice if AFE had a choice of RED wrinkle paint to stand out but I'm happy too...:clap:

Shoks are the wheels. I did replace the rear shocks with Fabtechs.

No, it's completely different. This is specific to the Ranger.
Makes sense that the ranger would have already when, to my knowledge, the fuspo never did.

4 way camera integration module. This module allows adding both front and side cameras to the stock SYNC 2 or 3 system. I didn't order a camera yet because I wasn't sure it would be compatible. You can manually toggle the front and rear camera manually with the radio power button. When it functions automatically the front comes one once it the radio fully boots up and you shift into neutral or drive and then shuts off above 7 mph, the sides activate when you hit the turn signals and reverse as normal in reverse.

Lower the volume on this one the music on this one as the satellite was cutting on and off in the garage.

Install required removing all these panels just to get to the APIM. Simply plugs in between the harness. Run the wires for the camera and make the connections. I'll be looking for a decent front camera next and then buttoning everything up.

I saw a video of a unit like this being installed in an F-150 - A Rostra 250-8455.

Pretty cool - will be interested to see it once you get the camera(s).

This is a much smaller unit and at least $100 cheaper. I thought I had a spare camera laying around to test but I guess I don't or can't find it. I Just ordered one and should have it Thursday. Find a good place for rock spotting, etc will add a bit to the final installation.

Update on the front camera interface. So, the rear functions as normal. The front camera will come on after you go from reverse into neutral/drive. It will stay on for 30 seconds or you reach 7 mph. If you want the front on again you need to go reverse and then back to neutral/drive. If you want it as a parking camera you'll have to do that dance. Or manually activate the system. To manually activate you hold the radio power for 2 seconds. The rear comes on first and you hit the power again and it toggles to the front. It will stay in indefinitely in manual mode or until you manually shut it down or go into reverse. Then it defaults. I'm probably going to set it where the front doesn't come on unless I manually turn it on for offroading since I have the parking sensors. That's done by putting it in reverse and holding the power button for 5 seconds. It will not come on automatically in that setting. My original purpose for the camera was to see in front of the bumper while offroad and it does just that for me. It does have the capacity to add side cameras as blind spots but I don't feel I need them with my mirror settings and the blindspot alert.

Can't say I noticed anything for regular driving but the cold/low rpm stumble/miss is definitely gone with the Accel coil packs. Worth the $120. resistance measured at 32 compared to 33 stock.

Next project adding one touch to the other windows. Passenger front at the minimum.
I’m curious about this miss, did you also have it with a hot engine?
Did you take this issue up with a dealership?

Taking mine in today to check hidden codes, I’ve got two TSB’s (thanks) off your thread to point them in the right direction, hopefully I’ll deal with a competent staff.
