A few Ecoboost pics from underneath

I finally got a chance to get my Ecoboost on the lift today to look around at the under side.Just incase you haven't had a chance to look at your EB from down under I took a few pics.If there are any other pics you want to see just let me know and I can get some in the near future.I was surprised at how rusty my front driveshaft is considering my truck was built less than a month ago and its only been rained on once since I've had it.I need to hit it with some Rustbullet.

Click on hyperlinks below to view pics.

Beautiful rig and thanks for the pics! I'm still trying to figure out why a 36 gallon tank in not available with the EB trucks.

Anyone have an insight on this?

Did you change your FX4 decal? I noticed the X is not Red.

I got some scrap pieces of black vinyl from my friends sign shop and cut out some black X's and covered up the red.

9.75 rearend that used to be 5.4L exclusive on the F150. It's a good unit.

I must say that the turbos and such look like a mechanics nightmare.

Is that a piece of flex pipe just in front of the muffler? Hard to tell from the camera angle.

It looks like a mini catalytic converter, but I don't know if it is a cat. It is wrapped with strands of steel woven together and is very solid.
