Yeah the 5.0 in the F150 is incredibly underrated by Ford, mostly because they want to keep sales of the Ecoboost engine high. The truck 5.0 has dyno'd numbers nearing those of the 6.2L V8 in the...

I would do a retro-fit if I were you. The Factory HIDs are nice, but I believe they use Valeo projectors and fluted lenses which really dumb-down the output of the projectors. A quality retro-fit...

After driving both engines in the F150, I'd say both are great truck motors. The 5.0L likes to rev, but It is tuned down for the F150 and actually is great for torque and gets better fuel mileage...

Looks awesome, i love the GT500 wheels and spoiler. Windows don't look tinted though?

Retrofitting is absolutely the way to go. Not only does it cost less, but the performance is better than even the factory OEM HIDs. If you use projectors from theretrofitsource like the FXR 3.0, you...
