    Based on his name and reading his post, I’m confident that English is his second language.

    I don’t think this is some dumb kid who is lazy and/or talks like an idiot on purpose.

    It wasn’t a “wats da sickest blower wine 4 ma 99Gt” post.

    Props to Steve

    Pretty sure this was supposed to go in the Biden Predictive Text thread.

    If thats the case then he can have a pass obviously. However I have noticed similar sentence structure issues on FB lately so I doubt this is the case. I'll spare you my thoughts on how society is making piss poor communication acceptable.

    The other funny part of this is that every time someone new pops in here with a first post just like this someone has to bring up that english may not be their first language. What everyone fails to realize is that it keeps happening over and over again. I think it is safe to assume that we are not solely attracting new members whos primary language is something other then english.

    Does not take a genius to figure out that English is not his first language, cut the vato some slack.

    OP, you will put more money into the the truck than it’s worth. Part it out and start with another truck. Best advise!

    Depends on what you want to do with the truck. Have the heads checked to make sure they arent trash. Any iron block 5.4 will work. Get some Diamond pistons with forged rods and crank.

    The BIGGEST advice I can give is finding a QUALITY tuner. Id guess that your tune was shit and your truck went lean under boost. Or, its an older truck thats had the holy shit beaten out of it. Most likely, you'll need to go stand alone controller as most of the major tuners dont support older vehicles on factory ECUs. Also, most wont even help because youre in California.

    Check out JBA performance in Kearny Mesa. They should be able to get you set on a decent path if there is one. If you were in a free state, Id probably tell you to cut your losses and Gen 2 Coyote swap it.
