After talking with HSP I ordered their max flow bundle kit this morning.

Went with their candy red, since they said they use the illusion cherry color for their candy red anyway. So that saved me $100. Also had a discount code from one if the YouTube guys I follow. That saved another $123. Next up will be the cp3 conversion kit. And down pipe. Image

Yeah I saw that on Instagram haha. They say to allow 7-10 days for powder coat before it ships.

I'm not I'm a huge rush though since I still have other parts to buy and need the weather to start warming up.

CP3 conversion is ordered.

I went with the SDP kit and got the exergy sportsman pump. It's a upgrade over the stock cp3. It will maintain fuel feed over 3k rpm whereas the stock cp3 will not be able to maintain a good fuel supply above 3k.

Sportsman pump showed up today. The rest of the kit will be here next week.

I am expecting the intake/exhaust kit to ship late next week sometime or early the following week. Image

The most fuel I've put in the truck since I've owned it. I wanted to test to make sure I wasn't going to have the 1/4 tank or less issues some have with their lift pumps.

I ran it down to around 1/8 tank. Had no issues with it sucking air. Just wanted to verify I had my stand pipe deep enough in the tank lol. Image

Installed my headlights tonight. Went easy and smooth as expected. I want to fab up some brackets to hold the ballasts a little nicer. I have some aluminum plate that will be good for that.

I also need to adjust/change the bulb orientation on the passenger side low beam in the projector. It is a little cockeyed as far as cutoff and beam pattern goes. I either have it clocked wrong, or it isnt fully seated. The drivers side low beam is perfect. Well as perfect as the stock projectors will get it.

High beams are decent. Not bad, but not stellar either. I don't use my high beams a whole lot, and plan on putting my light bar back on anyway so they will essentially be just a filler anyway. They are better than stock however.

I did not need the extension caps for the dust covers. The high beams fit nicely under them without modification. The low beams I had to drill a 7/8 hole for the grommet for the wires to pass through.

I opted to partially remove the headlight housings instead of pulling the 2nd battery and air box. Was just a few clips for the trim panel, some bolts for the grille and then 2 bolts for the lights themselves. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
