Some Mods To the Lightning

I love to read the build threads and check out what others have done or are doing. So I figured some of you may like to see what I have done to the Lightning over the past few months.

Started of by doing upper and lower LCA's along with a power rack system to replace the standard heavy truck steering setup. End result is a far firmer feel and a lot more responsive steering. The new harder bushings in the LCA's add to the feel.

Since the above pic was taken I have replaced the hose with braided/an lines.

A trans cooler from the F250 diesel lineup was fitted. Cools much better. I also bypassed the radiator to help keep the trans temps in order.

Next the Whipple 140 was exchanged for the larger Whipple 210.

A friends dog had to pose on it.

A few misc shots

All parts were installed by Josh and me in my garage, well Wayne came over to drink some beer ever now and again lol.

Brakes are new too, I know I know she needs a brake fluid change. Next on the to do list.

Looks great. How much HP does the polished steering give you? haha

Can't wait to see the truck in person. And yea, that brake fluid is fricken NASTY! haha

That is some nice looking installs, probably a pretty nasty little sleeper truck.

Apparently you neglected to read the first post... :banghead:
IF your thinking about just tossing that ol' used up 140 whipple, you could just send it my way...:twocents: Just sayin...
