Subject: RE: FTE 97up - F-150 thermostat

High engine temp = good
Low fuel/air temp = good

The trick is to run the engine hot
and deliver cool fuel/air. Like you
stated, create a dense mixture.

Look at cooled turbo applications for
instance. Intercooled turbos create
much greater HP, but they don't
cool down engine temperature to
do so. They just cool the mixture.

For an optimum, efficient burn, you
must maintain the higher engine temp.
I always went as high as I could get away
with (before overheating or pre-detonation),
to produce the greatest HP.

Also, a result of low engine temp, and thus
an incomplete burn, is cylinder washdown.
This is when unburned raw fuel washes down
your cylinder walls. (A very bad thing) Which
can cause blow-by and ring failure.

From: "Daniel M. Richmeier"
Subject: FTE 97up - Oil Pressure

I have a feeling that the engine in my '99 F-250 SD SC 4X4 5.4L is
not getting an adequate oil supply. The engine knocks loudly for
about 30 seconds after starting it cold. Although The dash gauge
always shows high pressure, I don't trust it.

How can I measure the actual pressure? What should the pressure
be?

Any comments would be appreciated!....
