There is no guarantee that the 1999 Lightning will be put into production
yet, much less with a Super Charger. I have a friend that works for SVT and
he said preliminary 1/2 mi runs are 14.6s, which are damn good, but he said
without the SC, the runs are around 15.7s, much like the current stock
Lightning.

I look for SVT to release the Lightning in 99 without the SC.

I have never seen a 454SS(Super Slow) or Dodge RAM Pace Truck run under
16.2's stock. With the stock Lightning running 15.6 stock that .6sec is
quite a bit to make up in the 1/4 mi.

I have run several of them here in Oklahoma and whether on the street or
strip, I love to see them in my rear view mirror.

Subject: Re: 92' Bronco Engine Swaps

Stock my Lightning ran 15.5s in Oklahoma conditions.

With just Flowmatser mufflers, a K&N, NGK plugs, a brass cap and rotor,
pulleys, and shift kit the truck ran 15.2s. Which is damn good for a truck
weighing 4800lbs.

With my current setup I am running 13.8s on street tires and 13.5s on
slicks. Traction is my problem. I am having some Rancho Traction bars as
we speak. That should get me to13.3s. Currently the truck weighs in at
4600lbs. I have added a roll pan and with the removal of the stock heads,
which were 101lbs alone, allowed me to shed some weight.

I also have a Vortech S-trim in the garage waiting to be bolted on. That
should put me in the 12.2-12.5 range and will be my stopping point. If I go
any faster I would have to modify my frame with a roll cage.

Subject: 302-6 EGR tube problem

I was looking at modifying an ERG tube on a 302 V8 I was told metal electrical
conduit would work. It will fit over the old tube and can be welded and bent.
