I have the Flowmaster dual oulet cat-back system on my 97 SC 4x4 4.6, and it
fit with no problem. I had some 3" ends welded on and it looks and sounds
great. By the way I have the Delta Flow muffler.

I have a 99 F250 with the V10. Does the motor use a mass flow sensor to
measure airflow? Is it part of the
large air cleaner assembly?

Thanks.

In a message dated 99-08-23 11:39:17 EDT, you write:

look between throttle body and air filter if there is a cylindrical metal
object with a sensor plug in the answer is yes. Most trucks run speed
density but mass air is more accurate way of metering air.
Unless you are using a SEFI programmable speed density race unit ($).

Subject: Re: FTE 97up - Headers for a PSD?

I'm getting the 2000 model F350 PSD, and I don't think I need to replace
the pipe at all. Having it jet-hot coated will reduce the underhood
temperature and radiant heat dissipation that ultimately gets absorbed
into other components close to the exhaust. I just thought it might be
interesting to see if anyone made a tuned exhaust (header) for the 7.3
liter PSD.

Help me understand what the term "cat back" means. I've been assuming
that it means a replacement system for the pipes aft of the catalytic
converter. I'm more interested in free flowing and shielding the
exhaust in front of the catalytic converter. What happens after the
catalytic converter is of less importance, because that heat is already
behind any components that I'm concerned with.

I installed the Gibson 3" Cat-Back system on my 1999 F-150,Sc,Lb,4.6l V8.
The system was no picnic to install. All of the pieces fit together nicely,
without any cutting except the tip of the tailpipe for the chrome extension.
The problems came when I tried to fit the system onto the truck. With the
original system with only a "hot wrench", the area was ready for the
exhaust. The biggest problem is that the system won't bolt on without first
removing the spare tire. After installation, I couldn't put the spare back
under the truck....I now have to relocate it..BUMMER> I have the 3.73LS

Subject: RE: FTE 97up - Gibson Cat Back Exhaust

Guys, with all this talk about custom exhaust systems and difficult
installations, perhaps it might be high time to revisit the local muffler
shop with the experienced exhaust man. There was a time, in my youth, when
every vehicle I owned had newly installed headers run wide open across town
to the muffler shop, where the man with the plan fabricated (from scratch) a
complete dual exhaust system, starting with straight pipe, a bending
machine, and the mufflers of my choice (usually cherry bombs or turbo
mufflers). He also used clamps in lieu of welding, so it didn't have to be
cut apart should you wish to modify something.

Perhaps I'm just tripping down memory lane.

I know things have changed under the trucks, but the need for experienced
exhaust men has not. I have one here in town that wouldn't be afraid to
tackle any job, I suspect... The same guy who installed all my exhausts all
those years ago. I'm certain he will be included when I evaluate my exhaust
options in the future.

Your thoughts, anyone?

List,

I've recently had my '97 F350 dually truck in twice for the rear brakes not
returning to their normal position. The brakes will squeak as the wheels
rotate until the brakes are applied, then squeal continuously until stopped.
This process starts slowly and quietly, but gets worse with time. The
service manager says mine is not the only truck experiencing this, that it's
always the left side, and he's not sure why. I'll be making my third trip
soon. Any ideas?

I did a very simple muffler install. I cut off the old muffler/tailpipe
just in front of the muffler. Then I clamped on a 50 series Flowmaster
onto the end, then clamped on a mandrel-bent 45-degree pipe (as a
turn-down) on the back of the muffler. I hung it using a strap around the
existing hanger. Sounds great and a noticeable improvement in
power/torque. And, about 1.5 more MPG. Total cost: $71. Total time:
about two hours with "help" from our six-year old.

Pennhead,

It seems the better systems, Borla etc.., are easier to
install and have some R&D behind them to help increase HP,
torque, sound... I had put a Borla on my 97 F-150 4x4 by
the local muffler shop for $30.00 CDN. They could have
built me a system from stainless but it would have been
guess work and the cost would have been more than the
Borla. The Borla has a 1,000,000,000 mile warrantee.

I had the system replaced twice by Borla no questions
asked. The Muffler shop even wrote on the invoice that they
attempted to weld (for free, Borla was willing to pay for
it) before they replaced it. When the second muffler came I
put it on myself and saved the $30.00. It was easy and took
all of 20 minutes. Do not attempt this on a hot system. I
guess a combo of good quality products and a reputable shop
go hand in hand. The question remains do you want to pay
for your system or not.

Regards

Jean Marc Chartier

Subject: FTE 97up - Gibson Cat Back Exhaust


I installed the Gibson 3" Cat-Back system on my 1999 F-150,Sc,Lb,4.6l V8.
The system was no picnic to install. All of the pieces fit together nicely,
without any cutting except the tip of the tailpipe for the chrome extension.
The problems came when I tried to fit the system onto the truck. With the
original system with only a "hot wrench", the area was ready for the
exhaust. The biggest problem is that the system won't bolt on without first
removing the spare tire. After installation, I couldn't put the spare back
under the truck....I now have to relocate it..BUMMER> I have the 3.73LS
w/16" tires and 4-wheel ABS Disc Brakes.Other than the spare riding in the
back seat for now, I love the extra power and sound of the new system. Now I
need only find an adapter to replace the spare back under the truck.

Got a question for you technical guys out there. Does anyone make a
header for the 7.3 liter PSD? I was thinking about changing the exhaust
setup and or having some of the factory components jet-hot coated to
reduce the under hood temperature.

Any thoughts on if it's worth the trouble or not?

Thanks! Don
