Sorry, I didn't say what I meant to say....

Try this:
1. You replied to more than just the list, you sent me personal
email. Which you generally shouldn't do. (I got email at my
home addressed to me, not just your posting here in the
newsgroup.)

2. What you meant to do (I think) was post an entirely new
message with an entirely new subject line, instead of just adding
an unrelated missive to an existing subject thread.

When you want to start a new topic,=20
- -- you want to select SEND NEW MESSAGE, or whatever the
corresponding command is on your software,=20
- -- you want to make sure the only address in the TO: slot is the
appropriate FTE group
- -- and you want to enter a new, appropriate subject in the
subject slot of your software.

Glad you made up your mind about the head unit.

Later,
j Alan

Subject: FTE 97up - Re: rear exit dual exhaust

I have always heard that if you exit pipes straight out the back, exhaust
can backdraft, and that's why exhaust pipes on most stock vehicles exit to
the sides....for instance, if you've got a kennelled dog in back of the
truck, and you have a canopy (I have yet to see a canopy that is completely
air tight), the dog would be exposed to exhaust fumes.

Am I wrong?

Subject: RE: FTE 97up - Re: rear exit dual exhaust

You are correct. My Bronco used to have the exhaust out the back and the
fumes were horrible inside. I moved them to the side and I no longer have
the problem. I assume the same would hold true of a pickup with a topper.

From: George Rigney
Subject: RE: FTE 97up - Re: rear exit dual exhaust

Kirk,

Hopefully, this is not the beginning of a long thread of treatises on
aerodynamics. Quite simply, there is a low-pressure area at the back of a
moving vehicle, which will draw in the exhaust whether the tailpipe is
located directly below the bumper or behind the rear wheel. However, it
will also draw in a lot of the surrounding 'fresh' air. This will be mixed
right behind the vehicle and will flow away. Unless there's a leak, there
shouldn't be any difference in exhaust fume exposure whether the tailpipe
goes out to the side or to the rear. The reason many vehicles have the
pipes sticking out the sides is because the passing air stream pulls the
exhaust out more effectively. The tailpipe on my old Torino is under the
rear bumper, but points down to incorporate this same principle.

Regards,
George

From: "Keith Veren"
Subject: FTE 97up - Rear exit dual exhaust

I probably would not install the dual exhaust out the rear on a vehicle like
the Expedition due to the potential for backdrafting exhaust gases into and
through the rear tailgate and window. However, for my open-bed F-350
pick-up, the duals out the back are great. (I have no top or camper on it).
I have not smelled a thing.

The swap isn't a lot of work. Unfortunately the parts are very expensive.
I think the mirrors are over $100 apiece.

OK, guys, what is the definition of "SAI Angle" in a alignment. Details
please. Also, "why" does this need to be done. BTW, it's not a MB, but that
may not matter. It's a F O R D.

Thanks guys

Subject: FTE 97up - intermediate pipe swap done on 99 PSD

Well today my buddy tlaked me into finally getting up under my 99 PSD and
installing intermediate pipe from at 99.5' PSD per Nathan's part no. that i
ordered from my FoMoCo. Dlr.
Here are my suggestions to anyone thinking about it
This was what i found on my 142" WB F250SD PSD/SC/4x4

1 . i did need to grind off stop on pipe that ford welds on
2. needed to shorten pipe around 3in for proper fit.
3. turbo does spool up better now, sounds more like a transfer truck now( a
buddys comment)
4. hey, no more givin tail gaters lil puff, much cleaner burn w/o cat, go....
