WPE ported intake

Seems to have dropped EGTs 50 degrees or so. Spools a little faster. Regardless it's nice to look at! Haven't had a real good chance to drive it yet.

$850 with powder coat and shipping. Mine has the EGR in place. Nate with WPE did it. No website but he's on powerstroke.org or if you want I can pm you his phone. $150 core or he waits to ship until you give him a tracking number withy the core. That's what I did. Quality piece. Took 3 weeks due to powder coating.

I just enabled PM's (I think).
PM's were previously only enabled for Administrators. Now they are enabled for all members.
