Can't wait to see the mod in person.
I found everything except the black PVC pipe. I will check Home Depot later, when I can go across town.

They got my Keyless Entry to working, that I installed. There was a missing ground wire in the Body Control Box. They retrieved the factory code for me. So it all works now. Happy for that!

I would think it would be beneficial to them in many ways if they did.

Have fun doing your project today.

He should know me since I have the sticker with my s/n underneath.

Funny thing he (service guy at Bankston Ford) and his wife bought/live in the house my best friend's parents used to own/live in (They've both passed away, RIP). My best friend grew up in that house. Small world.

I did the Gotts intake mod on my truck which is basically identical to this and everyone at F150.net bashed me and said I was going to burn up my engine because it will be running lean. Even if it does run lean it would only be at WOT which I seldom go anyway. I'm glad someone actually had dynoed one and has firsthand experience and not just a bunch of dumbasses repeating what they've read.

Ever since I came up with this intake mod (Sept. 2005) I have not ever heard of anyone having any kind of trouble related to it. I have run it on both my 04 F150 and it is currently on my 06 F150.

I think this part got left out: you must remove the positive battery cable for roughly 30 minutes after doing this mod. I didn't notice any difference after the mod was made. I then remembered to reset the computer it made a hell of a difference!

Removing the battery cable is optional. It is not required but it will speed up the adaptive process of the PCM. The PCM will make the adjustment on its own over a period of time.

Neither Home Depot nor Lowes had black PVC.

I used the regular white schedule 40 PVC but had to shave it down a little with a grinder.

Wow, thanks for the great write-up. I did this last night and it was REALLY easy. Got a K&N drop in and I think it took me longer to get to my saw in the garage (HoDepot only had 2 foot length of PVC) and cut the pipe then to actually assemble and put in the mod. Definitely go to Lowe's for the downspout connector. Home Depot had one of a different brand, but it was not the right fit. Went to Lowe's and they had the exact part you specified in stock. Seems to give me a little more on the top end, but that could be just wishful thinking. Now I can save that CAI money for something else! Thanks.

Thanks for all the feedback that everyone has posted. I appreciate it. I'm glad RockPick decided to let me post this back up for everyone's benefit. Thanks Brad!
