Joe,
You can get 300 HP out a 99 and 00 5.4 just by adding a Superchip,
AirRaid, power pulley, and cat-back exhaust. The biggest drawback now
is 90 octane fuel $1:50 a gallon. I would love to have a roots type
Supercharger to put me in the 400 HP zone but I can't justify the $ per
HP ratio....

Interesting. My 2000 F-150 4x2 SC Lariat 5.4L has:
Power Pulleys, Superchip, Electric Fans, Modified Air Raid to get cool air
from outside the engine bay, Flowmaster dual exhaust, B&M Transmission pan,
full synthetics.

You really think it's up to 300 net HP with these mods? What do you expect
my dyno'ed HP would be?

I also pan on putting some headers on in the near future along with 4:10
gears.

Thanks,

-Dean

Subject: Seat Lifts for Supercab Bench


Has anyone installed seat lifts in their Supercab? The one set I've found
looks promising (http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.calmarindustries.com/seatlift.ihtml), but I
wonder if others have been happy with them. I'd sure like to create a
little more room under the bench seat in my '00 Superduty. Since either
the kids or dog rides in the back losing headroom isn't really a problem.

Since you are looking for a different application (I've seen it installed in

number is 480 921 7366. Hope it works out.

Question for the list about air horns once again. What are the pros and cons of
the electric air horns vs. the compression based air horns? TIA!!!

Subject: Re: Air Horns

Doug,

I use to have an air horns on my old Toy**, they were Dual air horns with chromed metal
trumpets; they produced 118db big rig blast. I've also, got the heavy-duty direct drive
compressor. At first, it looked great and the sound was nice, but after a while I
really didn't like the work that came with it. I had to clean them all the time (bugs,
salt, dirt, sand,...etc.) I had to check them at least twice a week. I talked to some
friends who drive big trucks and they told me to get a heavy-duty electric compressor
for them, then all I had to do is blow them once every time I want to get them clean.
So I've got one that provides 15-18 psi of continuous air pressure, and the good thing
about it that I didn't need the storage tank. This setup worked for a while.
After a year or so, I changed to a signal tone electric 130db freeway plaster horns.
It will work on a single or double terminal, it's loud and I got it with the high
frequency. I replaced my factory one with it, and I really liked it. In fact, I wish
I know about it before I did the air horn.
If I want to change the one on my truck, I would get the last one. It really comes
down to what you want and what you like. There is tons of them out there.

Good luck.

Hunter.

Subject: Gas

Hi,

I've got this e-mail this afternoon, and I wonder if anyone of you heard of it. I've
got it with thousands of e-mail address. This is what it said:


Last year on April 30,1999, a gas out was staged across
Canada and the U.S. to bring the price of gas down, and it worked. It's
time to do something about it again. This time, lets make it for three
days instead of just one. The oil cartel decided to slow production to
drive up gasoline prices. Lets see how many Canadian\American people we
can get to ban together for a three day period in April, NOT TO BUY ANY
GASOLINE, during those three days. LETS HAVE A GAS OUT. Do not buy any
gasoline from APRIL 7, 2000, THROUGH APRIL 9, 2000. Buy what you need
before the dates listed above, or after, but try not to buy any during
the GAS OUT. If you want to help, just send this to everyone you know and
ask them to do the same. We brought the prices down once before, and we
can do it again! Come on North America lets stand together.
WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even if you receive
this 100 times keep passing it around, this way you know everyone is....
