bdugle......WELCOME to The Forum

I believe your pinging is probably timing related. Post your question in the Conversion forum, as well as perusing the threads on custom timing maps from forum member Turbota.

I run an oil cooler on my 05....it helps some....but not that much. I don't believe the XR oiling system will retro-fit ours.

Good luck but get that pinging solved.
