Subject: FTE Perf - Speed Density modifications

I've been discussing Speed Density vs Mass Air off-list with Jim
(kroger ucla.edu). We want to know what engine modifications anyone has
done to a Speed Density truck, and what the effects were. Headers?
Chips? Cat-back? I've had no problem with my K&N (in fact, it helped a
lot) but I've not done anything else to this truck (yet...). What mods
are forbidden by the Speed Density computer, and what will it do if you
try them? I've heard lots of rumors and opinions, so some firsthand
stories would be enlightening. Thanks!

You need to comeon over to the Lightning list. There are lots of mods
you can do with speed density some require having a computer chip to
make them work. You can switch cams just won't see any benefit from it
without a chip. Samething for heads and intakes...with speed density the
computer is set to run on a given amount of air entering the engine and
does not automatically adjust for it when you improve air flow...but
computer chips do wonders.

Want an example...one of Lightning guys just ran 11.9s the other day
with speed density...but before he got a chip burned ON A DYNO, none of
this mail order sh**, he was running 13.3 but after the chip he ran a
12.2 on a 90 degree day, and then with a cooler day(50) he ran the
11.93. The main thing was to program the computer to optimize his
modifications,(Supercharger, ported heads, cam and a few others)!

Hope this helps, I was kinda of doubtful and was looking into a mass air
conversion for my Lightning but after seeing this results I don't think
there is any need for it!

Subject: FTE Perf - 300/6

Anyone know of any high performance parts for the 300 cid in-line 6? If I
look for a replacement 300/6, are the mount bolts the same for all of them, or
did Ford change the engine and bell housing/transmission mounting patterns
through the years? I know Ford made this engine for a very long time. The
one I have right now is a 1979 model. Bill Jeffreys

Checked the Comp Cams catalog and they list six different grinds. That'll
usually mean somebody's making manifolds and other accessories to support
the cam change.
