Thanks for the info on the 300, I had heard that somewhere. But, I am trying
to get more HP and RPM's, so I think I will go for the 8 if I do anything

FORDZILLA!!
SWMBO and the kids came up with that name while they were watching
me push over a few trees, pull a stump and remove the fenders and
bumper from my parts truck (using a chain and 4-lo)....

These old trucks certainly do have a bit of character!!

Probably aluminized.... This stuff really lasts, at least down here in the
south where we don't have to deal with all of that Yankee road salt :)
I've had an aluminized exhause system for 4 years now, and only signs of
rust on the seams, but not bad...
