Hey all, I got talking to a friend about ways to get a little more
power out of the 5.4L. I discoverd that you can replace the intake
silencer(elbow) to gain about 3 hp. You can also replace the flex
joint just upstream of the silencer to gain another 3. As for the
limiting point in the motor to gain the most power, I think the
problem lies in the heads. Changing other things helps, but, that is
the limiting component, so, I'm sitting back and waiting for the 16
valve heads that are due out supposedly. I was also thinking about
changing around the intake and making it come off the hood from a
scoop. Any comments on that? I think that would help, but, that is
all theory right now.
I am also looking to replace the chrome grill on my Expy with a color
matched(pacific green) grill from a F-150(cross hatch patern). I
think it should be an easy swap, but I'm not sure. Anyone like the
chrome Expy grill that has a green F-150 wanna swap??? I live in
IF anyone is looking to improve the sound system, I am currently in
the middle of designing some boxes for 10" subs, one for the passenger
side and one for the driver's side. When I get them done, I will give
the drawings out to those that want it.
Lastly, I am looking for some pics of Expys at play. I saw the pics
of the four wheeling puppies. That is the style of pics that I am
after. Betsy and her friends, can I use those on my site???

Thanks, Chris Coleman(http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.geocities.com/napavalley/6916)

I have a F-250 with the 6.8 V-10 showing up in Oct. and am interested in
putting a supercharger on it.
I haven't had any luck on the Internet so far. Does anyone know company
that offers
a kit for this or anyone who has pieced one together?

Anyone out there that has the v-10 how do you like it so far?
