    2012 Ford F150 FX4.....found one with the "long bed"......the long bed around here is VERY hard to find

    The truck only has 17,500 miles on it

    Max Tow
    Power folding mirrors
    Heated/Cooled leather
    power sunroof
    power rear slider w/ defroster

    Funny thing is, that HIDs and Telescope Mirrors were not available in 2012........the build date on the door jam is 05/2012

    It also has a 2013 grill and front end......title and all Ford documents say 2012

    Very smooth motor, smooth power throughout the RPM band

    Definitely powerful for a V6..........it is nice and quiet too

    Mileage is decent, with the 2" leveling kit and the LT275s (a tad over 34" tall), I am only seeing 16-18 mpg

    I am going to swap over to synthetic oil and see if the cold air intake helps at all..........then onto some custom tuning

    I think all modern cars have cold air intakes I wouldn't waste any money on that unless your modifying the engine for more power.

    You won't see anything with a cold air intake unless you also do a tune. There really is no need to change to synthetic oil Motorcraft synthetic blend is really a top quality oil. For a vehicle that is a going to be a daily driver it's just a little much.

    I plan on some power mods, for sure.........not that is already isn't already powerful

    Throttle bod, intake, tune, etc...........the single 3" exhaust will suffice for now

    I am changing everything over to Amsoil, full syn

    I recal the WRX tuner guys sorting out that the stock intake system was good for about 400hp after that they had to switch to an aftermarket intake system to get into the higher power numbers. I'd guess fords stock intake will handle simple tuning mods just fine. I wouldn't bother. Save your money for an Icon suspension!

    Larger throttle body? Spacers have been shown over and over again to do nothing. If your are dead set on a cold air intake make sure it is one with a dry filter.
