Here is the link to Helms the publisher of the Ford service manuals http://www.helminc.com/
Do you own the black L with the lightning bolts that was at E-town on the 23rd of March? That is one sharp truck, I was there but I did not get a chance to talk to you. What kind of chip do you plan on using? I have the PSP 4-way in my 00 L and I love it.

Uh, no.... Nitrous is not easy to properly install.

There are many things to keep in mind if Nitrous is in your plans.

Custom programmed chip.
New plugs (not platinum).
Fuel pressure.
Safety precautions(engine).
Warranty.

Do your research. There isn't a better mod out there for the track. Not something that you would want to use on the street though.
