Recently, I would hear a pop when negotiating parking
lots. It turned out that my steering box bolts were
all very loose..... Very scary...

Holy crap that's hot!!! And that's a whole lot of
motor to cool! But is it a DRY heat? hahahaha.

How long do your plug wires and hoses last? I bet it
gets as hot as a turbo car does under that hood.

Well I don't know how to do it on your truck and still
be emissions legal but if you want to, the equipment
you mentioned will work fine. I have an 85 5.0 from a
Cougar installed in my 55 F100. The intake and carb
combo will fit fine. The duraspark setup works great.
I know you will have to work out something with the
fuel pressure though. The fuel injection stuff runs
like 40psi and that Holley won't like more than 5psi.
Don't know about the electronics beyond the duraspark
setup.

How can you tell a detroit locker from any other rear end?
Did they make them in 1964?
Is $320 a good price?
Thanks

Anyone know anything about the smog pump in the 2.9L EFI V6 or how I can go
about disconnecting it? I've heard rumors that it could help gas
mileage...
Thanks!
