2008 Triton 5.4 3v Phaser Knock Fixed with LockOuts

2008 F150 with the "fixed" cam phaser issue. Search around and you will quickly find that this is a wide spread issue that Ford is unable to fix. Most times you end up footing the bill and still walk away with the same problem either instantly or within a short time. I will be installing a cam phaser locks and updating the PCM to resolve this issue. Yes you will loose some HP and Torque but in the long run you dont have to keep paying for failed phasers and VCT solenoids. Currently the parts are back ordered (seems its hard to keep up with demand) but once they come in I will post another video of the results.

Phaser Bolt: Torque to 30 ft lbs then an additional 90 degrees. The crankshaft is always being turned in a clockwise direction until the last positioning of the crankshaft in which we spin it counter clockwise 180 degrees. Proper positioning of cam lobes for roller follower removal.

Cam Phaser Lockout Install
In this episode, camshaft phaser lockouts are installed into each timing chain sprocket assembly. Variable camshaft timing (VCT) is typically used to increase torque at lower RPMs while not sacrificing power at higher RPMs. For those who have aftermarket camshafts, installing camshaft phaser limiter or lockouts is a good option to prevent variable camshaft timing (VCT) control issues, to reduce the likelihood of piston-valve interference, and to generally increase the robustness of the engine. This modification makes sense for those who are running forced induction where the benefits of VCT become negligible in comparison to the torque/power gains obtained with Superchargers or turbos. |MY MODS| ENGINE - BOSS 5.0 cast iron block - Manley Pro Series I-beam rods - Manley forged pistons (with MMR coating) - MMR 4.75 stroker crank forged 4340 - MMR/Ford Racing Stage 3 ported heads - MMR/Comp Stage 3 turbo cams - Livernois cam phaser lockouts - Ford Racing 3V air intake manifold (carbon hydro-dipped) - APR 2000 head studs, rod bolts, side bolts, main cap studs - Ford Racing twin 62 mm throttle body - C&L 95 mm cold air intake - MMR billet oil pump gears - MMR 7 quart oil pan (red) - Moroso welded aluminum valve covers - Powder coated timing cover (black) - MSD Blaster Coils - Steeda aluminum belt tensioner - Romac Pro Harmonic Balancer TRANSMISSION/DRIVELINE - Tremec T-56 Magnum XL 6-speed (Ford Racing packaged) - SFI certified bell housing - McLeod RXT 1200 twin-disk clutch - McLeod aluminum 8-bolt flywheel with steel insert - APR 2000 flywheel bolts - JPC clutch line upgrade - Driveshaft shop one-piece aluminum driveshaft (for T-56 transmission) WHEELS/TIRES - Wheels: Forgestar CF5V 19” diameter x 12” wide with 6 mm offset wheels (all four corners) - Front tires: Continental Extreme Contact P305/30ZR19 (102Y) - Rear tires: Kumho Ecsta V720 ACR P355/30ZR19 (99Y) - McGard black lug nuts with locks ENGINE BAY - Trufiber carbon fiber full-length radiator cover - Moroso welded aluminum radiator expansion tank - Moroso welded aluminum power steering tank - Ford Racing Boss 302 style strut tower brace (carbon dipped) EXTERIOR - Trufiber widebody fender flares - Trufiber carbon fiber decklid panel - Raxiom smoked projector lights (GEN 5 style) - Raxiom smoked vector tail lights with white diffusers (GEN 6) - CDC chin spoiler (carbon fiber wrapped) - CDC chin splitter (carbon fiber wrapped) - MMD ducktail spoiler (carbon fiber wrapped) - SVE Bullet style grill - Trufiber 3 inch cowl hood - Custom painted hood, roof, trunk - MGP red brake caliper covers INTERIOR - Brushed aluminum interior kit - Autometer Nexus Boost, fuel pressure, A/F ratio gauges - Autometer Nexus trans. temp, oil temp, Exhaust temp gauges - Speed of Sound A-pillar gauge pod - Speed of Sound dash gauge pod FUEL - Kenne Bell Boost-a-pump - Ford Racing 47 lb/hr injectors COOLING - Mishimoto performance radiator - Ford Racing performance radiator fan - Mishimoto 170 F thermostat - Mishimoto silicon hose kit (black) CHASSIS/SUSPENSION - Eibach Pro suspension kit (with sportline springs in front) - BMR tubular K-member - BMR tubular front lower control arms (A-arms) - BMR adjustable rear upper control arm - BMR upper control arm mount - BMR adjustable rear lower control arms (spherical & poly) - BMR lower control arm relocation brackets - J&M adjustable panhard bar Exhaust - BBK tuned length shorty headers - BBK 2.75 inch X-pipe (catted and off-road, can switch) - MBRP 3 inch catback Exhaust TUNING - Custom tune from Chris Groves @ The Dyno Edge PLANNED FUTURE MODS - turbohorsepower twin turbo kit - Boost controller - Injector Dynamics 1300 fuel injectors - 1000+ hp return style fuel system (not sure which brand yet) - Stronger axles - New differential & gears - APR Performance carbon fiber diffuser - APR Performance carbon fiber side skirts - APR Performance carbon fiber rear lip splitters
