Andy,

Do the 4 way flashers do the same thing? They use the same
flasher so If they don't you can eliminate the flasher,
bulbs, and ground. The only part they don't eliminate is
the multi-function switch.

Regards

Subject: RAM Air Intake
Date: Wed, 12 Jul 2000 12:15:28 -0600

I have a 2000 F250 HD 4x4 Supercab V10 and want to install a better air
intake system and filter. I would prefer a system that takes in air from in
front of the radiator support frame work somewhat like the stock FORD
arrangement.

Cooler Air and forced means greater power. I have looked at the K&N
FIPK, Airaid, and the Air Flow Products units. All of these use the under
the hood air.

Any comments, suggestions or user opinions appreciated.

I trimmed part of the radiator support bracket and placed a piece of 2" PVC
pipe in it. The PVC pipe is directed at the air filter intake. I trimmed the
snout of the air filter intake to make it less restrictive. A piece of vaccum
sweeper hose, or something similar, might work well, too.

I also bored a couple large holes in the support to allow air coming through
the driver's side of the grille (the 'D' shaped part) to reach the air intake.

I also replaced the stock filter with a K&N filter. I took pictures of the
modifications, and when I get the film developed I'll post the pictures on my
website.

I have to agree...I've never seen a RamAir generate the HP that they claim.

FWIW, we dyno'ed before and after a K+N installation on a 2000 Powerstroke
and gained 3.6rwhp.

Subject: levelling kit and center of gravity
From: Kirk Werner Werner.org>

I've heard tell several folks who've added the 2-1/2 inch levelling kit, but
I haven't heard if any of them also haul a camper around on the back of
their trucks. The 4x4 superduties sit pretty high off the ground as is- I
can't imagine wanting it any higher. Looks-wise, I think they benefit from
bringing the front end up a bit, but functionally- when hauling a top heavy
load- it seems like a mistake. Anyone have a levelled truck (non dually)
AND haul a camper? If so, how's the handling?

Kirk

Subject: Re: levelling kit and center of gravity

My brother-in-law has a '99 SD F250 crewcab 4x4 powerstroke and he
replaced the springs, front and rear, with National Springs that give
him a 4" lift. He hauls a Lance camper on many trips to the desert and
the river. He doesn't seem to have any problems with handling. I have
been behind him when we have experienced some heavy winds on the
highway, and he seems to take it all in stride. I think the most
difficult part of the lift is getting the camper on and off. Hope this
helps.

Subject: Superchip...

Some time back there was an offer for a collective discount for those
folks who are members of this list wishing to purchase a Superchip for a

PSD. Does that offer still stand, and who do I contact to make the
purchase with a discounted price?

Also, there is more than one chip manufacturer out there, which one is
best?

TIA

Don
