out the propane injection! It is so sneaky. Also probably will be a 15sec
truck very soon.

I'm not a big fan of the diesel. When you compare the initial cost and
maintenance cost over a 100,000 mile life, the gas engine is much cheaper.
I've heard alot of good things about the v10, I thing you are on the right
track. What's the final price tag going to be on the supercharger, I may
want to check on one for my 4.6 Expedition. Good luck! >>

Ken,

Thank you for sharing your personal experience with us, he did indeed sound
like a person true to his faith. Additional thanks for reminding the group
that the mailing list is people talking to people, not some isolated
computer talking to your computer. You and Peggy have a good week getting
settled back in.

Keith

A few days ago i was rideing by the local Ford dealer and notice something
pretty ugly with a bed on it. jee wiz what was Ford thinking when they built
that explorer with a bed on it, its looks like some one passed gas and made a
bed on the back. It looked ok in the press photos i saw but in person, ick.
anyone else see one?
sorry i couldnt hold back, i just had to say something.

Well, I guess that just proves the many century old theory that people are
unique and different. I would guess that the Explorer Sport Track is
actually pretty nifty. Now look at that Dodge Dakota Quad Cab, what an
afterthought! Isn't Dodges' motto DIFFERENT???
Just my opinion. Please don't flame me.No I don't work for Ford either.

Since you are looking for a different application (I've seen it installed in
an F150 with a 5.4 and it is slick!!) I suggest you call them. Their phone
number is 480 921 7366. Hope it works out.

Subject: Ford performance exhaust
From: Kirk Werner werner.org>

When I had a Dodge, there was a mopar performance exhaust for Dodge trucks.
It was priced less than the aftermarket units offered by Gibson, Borla, etc.
Just curious if Ford makes a performance cat back exhaust that might be
cheaper than the non-facotry units.

Subject: E4OD and 4R100 bolt pattern, Type F fluid

Through much research and learning, I decided to order the B&M E4OD Deep
dish Aluminum tranny oil pan in the hopes that it would fit my 2000 F-150
4x2 4R100 transmission (with no drain plug). It was messy taking the stock
pan out, but the B&M fit like a glove. I reused the stock Ford gasket and
have no leaks. The Pan comes with a magnetic drain plug.

The B&M part number is: 40290 if anyone is interested.

BTW, you must use a 4x2 filter with this pan. The 4x4 filter can be made to
fit (B&M has directions on how much of the pickup tube has to be cut off).

Anyone use type F tranny fluid in their E4OD or 4R100 transmission? I
heard that Type F fluid will firm up the shifts a bit. Will is hurt the
tranny in any way?

Thanks,

-Dean

well my 4x4 4r100 pan has a drain plug and so do some other aftermarket pans

Do not use Type F , Ford spec is ATF mercon. If you can get your hands on
some synthetic it will greatly reduce temps and will last long especailly if
you tow.

Subject: PSD wheel torque values

Well today i got tire rotate and balance took a while to find where they tell
you what the Tq spec is for 99 SD. This was because the tire place was
wondering if it was still the same as 97' 140 ft/lbs. It was at the bottom
of the emergency instructions sheet, no where else. We were laughin, no need
for a torque wrench, jus' hit it with the gun! Super nice guys, didn't
charge for rotate & balance 45 min in and out, i had them mount them up when
i got them.
Why can't there more people like this! Just thought i would rant about good
service for once.
