I am the second owner of this 1999 white Ford Lightning which was purchased from Colorado with less the 10,000 miles on it. Previous owner had done basic bolt ons and ran low 11 sec passes on nitrous at elevation. Purchased truck and proceeded to upgrade stock ported blower and drivetrain. Currently I am running custom works performance intake with lysolm 2.3 blower putting out 15 pounds of boost. I pride my truck on staying street able and daily drive as much as I can. I have reached the limit of stock block as I am putting down corrected 540 horse and 570 torque thanks to expert tuning  and support from Rick at amazon. I pride myself on doing as much of the wrench turning as possible. This is my third lightning as I have owned a gen 1 and a silver gen 2. Much effort and long hours has gone into current gen 2 ford lightning to have a very fast street worthy truck. As I tell others the truck will never leave my side and will continue to evolve.
