    I washed that thing I don't know how many times, plus drove through some pretty decent water crossings and I still get crap in my eyes!

    How much lift did you get out of it? I'm looking to get a Wheeler's 1.5 aal for my truck to see if I can level it out (the front of my truck sits about 1-1.5 inches higher than the back right now).

    I think you need at least 2 more clamps on there.

    Bummer, the V6 is a ping happy motor, some do it without boost, just a strange quirk that still continues to puzzle folks. I don't remember if I asked before, but did you have fueling mods?

    Fabtech Fts205 is what it is I havnt measured or driven the truck yet, by it lookes to be more then 1.5 inches I have 5100 set at the top setting and the front was noticeable higher. So far with the aal the rear is noticeably higher, but I'm hoping that after few miles it will settle down and be about level

    Certainly the cheapest option to fix it on a boosted application. Although I find a lot of people don't even assemble meth kits correctly and use too weak of a pump (windshield sprayer), takes much more pressure to completely atomize it. Gets more expensive with the right pump and well placed nozzles.

    When faced with this problem I'm hoping to fix it all without meth, kind of a bandaid in my opinion. Proper fuel mapping is the permanent fix. On that note it would be very cool if someone made a aftermarket ECU map just to fix the V6 pinging, darn locked down ECUs make that just a dream

    I had larger injectors and a Snow Performance progressive methanol injection.
