Subject: Club FTE Referral Program


Club FTE is off to a fantastic start. Club Memberships will
be setup this weekend and membership cards mailed out on
Monday along with complete information on setting up and
using your membership accounts. Those with t-shirts in
their membership orders have already had the t-shirts shipped.

Since the club is off to a good start, we've decided to give
an added benefit for club members! For each person a club
member refers to Club FTE that signs up you'll receive a $5
credit in the FTE store! The FTE store is in the process of
adding a ton of new items for new and older trucks next week
so this will be of great benefit to active recruiters.

There is a $100 limit to credits. This does not mean you can't
get more than $100 in credits. It simply means you have to use
your $100 of credit before you can earn more. The sign-up form
has a place for referring members.

The club pages can be found at:

Date: Thu, 4 Jan 2001 09:16:46 -0600



Hi, I've been in the list for some time and have learned a lot about my
truck.  I have a 1994 F-150 SC 4x4 with a 302 Mass Air type.  I have added a
Jacobs Electronic Ignition (Ultra Team - Mileage Master) and a K & N filter
to date.  I have done a lot of research in the last 100,000 miles on the
truck about what I want to do when the 302 is tired.  I bought the truck
with 50,000, now have 150,000.  Still does not use oil, mileage is a little
less at about 15.5 average vs. 16 when it was younger in miles.  Still have
original exhaust, getting a little louder.  Thinking about going with a
Bassani complete exhaust kit, so I will get a new cat, headers and cat back.
Seams like only Bassani (major name brand) makes a complete kit.  I think
the motor might last till 200,000 (or more), but I am starting to loss
power.  I cleaned the Mass Air flow sensor with an electrical contact
cleaner (none residue type) and that helped.  Apparently the K & N air
filters loss some oil and some of it sticks to the sensor, making is less
sensitive.  Luckily my neighbor is a Ford mechanic and he checked out the
truck with the computer.  Now it appears something else might need cleaned
or replaced.
Finally the question; since I will have an investment in keeping the 302
living as long as I can, would a 331 be a wise choice as a replacement?  I
also considered a 347 but since the rods are longer, longevity may be a
concern compared to a 331.  Obviously I could put in a factory 351 direct
from Ford for about $2,200 plus other sensors to make it work, exhaust,
computer chip, air box, and misc. exp. totally somewhere around $4,500.
Replacement fuel injectors appear to be the same for the 302 and the 351, so
that should not be a problem with the 331.  The 331 long block I am looking
at has 9.5 to 1 compression compared to 9.0 stock on the 302.  The heads
would be CNC matched (whatever CNC means).  My choice of cam would not be
radical, having a normal power range of 1500 to 5000 rpm.  Obviously, I
would like more power and want to (have to) keep my truck.

Thanks,

Mike

I said my truck (the Beast) came with Kumhos. I said they seemed ok.
Since then, one has failed spectaculerly! BLAM, flop, flop. Today a second went down quick, and tossed the tread before we stopped. Both rear, if that first one had been front, that flopping tread may have creamed my front end. The knapheide service body laughed!

I have one Pirelli Norseman, looks like I'll get another in the morning.... hope they fare better!!!! Oh and now I need TWO new hubcaps!

IMO and experience, if you're going to the trouble to build a stroker, start
with the 351W.  Stronger bottom end parts, stronger blocks (74 and older
seem to be the best) and you will be much happier with the end result.

I'm in the process of looking into a set of shorty headers for my 1995 F150
5.0 because the stock manifolds have developed the common cracks.  Does
anyone know how much difference there is in the Mustang factory header and
the truck manifold?  They look almost identical and you can pick up a used
set cheap, sure would be nice if they would work.

Other than that does anyone have any experience with the Flowtech or Bassani
shorty headers?  The Flowtech headers are priced right but I worry about
rust on the painted headers.

I apologize for the multiple post, I have no idea what is causing it.  I
mailed the message from work and forgot to change the from address, the
message bounced as usual but then for some reason showed up on the list
twice from my work email.

Justin,

I'm positive mine doesn't.  I have read all the Ford books and can hold my
own regarding ignitions,  I've added a Jacobs Mileage Master to this truck
as well.
