Took care of the final door with the actuator tin foil fix. Passenger rear.
Now all 4 doors are working. Free.

Always was curious about the foil mod. Were they broken completely or just sluggish? what exactly did the foil do?

You wrap it around the thermal resistor, in effect the foil becomes a jumper to take the thermal resistor out of the circuit.

No video's, suppose I could make one. I would like to sell as one peice since the headers come with a y-pipe that bolts directly to the catalytic converter.

Which y-pipe does your Excursion have? Mine was the Ramhorn style.

4" MBRP catback, comes with a 3.5"-4" reducer. I also have the SPD y-pipe, that will go by by soon as my Dpug Thorley headers are on the way.

With the y-pipe and 4" the V10 pushes a lot of air out, loves high RPM with this setup.
Hows that sound? My 5.4 exhaust does not have a good sound at all, looking to change that, some time soon. I'm guessing it effects the mpg with the bring exhaust?? How much would you sell your y pipe for ???

Not sure on selling price yet. Header's probably wont be installed until early October sincemy Wife uses the truck for her Farmer's market. Sounds like a Honda with the firing order but I like it because it is so loud.

the brakes on my excursion are horrible and need replacing. i want to get good rotors/pads all around this time rather than cheap auto parts brand crap.

I got mine off of Rock Auto. I just did the fronts. I think I paid $188 for the rotors and pads shipped to Denver. I like them so far.

A days worth of project... Was nervous drilling into the manifold and intake elbow... but I took it slow and did em right.
Although those with autometer boost gauges, did you replace the hose that came with autometers package? It seems flimsy and easily broken..

Just a much needed wash and clay bar. Not too bad for a 9 year old truck.


Replaced the passenger tie rod the other day too.

Not trying to be a dick but why didn't you get three gauges that match?
