That was about all I noticed pulling the silencer off of my 'stang, though
it was a bit better throttle response too...

as long as you got everything sealed up tight you shouldn't be hurting
anything ...


Just my 2cents

Hey guys I came across this link from another news group and thought you may
get as much a kick out of it as I have. http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.wrljet.com/engines/

I used a stock tv rod from a 83 Lincoln 302, I cut it in half near the top
and welded a 3/8" nut on both cut ends. Then I put a 4" x 3/8" threaded rod
in so I could adjust it as the 351W with a performer intake sits up higher,
it seems to work well. The carb. end attaches to where the kickdown would
normally attach. The lever arm on the trans. end can be swapped to rotate in
an opposite arc depending on if your kickdown is on top or bottom of your
carb.
You will have to shorten the driveshaft and get it rebalanced, this cost me
$50 total.
The AOD is one inch longer at the trans. mount so you will have to contend
with adding an inch there. A little ingenuity here is needed but that is
part of the fun of this hobby.
Hope this helps.

Dave

You might also try what I did on my Ranger race truck. I ran some 3"
duct from an opening in the front directly to the K&N. My opening
happened to be where the headlight used to be but there is allot of
empty space in the front that you could possibly cut out and mount a
piece of duct to.

gottago seeya bye

There was talk a while back about thermostat temps. What is the stock
thermo temp for my '88 BII, and does anyone recommend changing it?
Also, I've heard that older BII's had larger throttle bodies than "newer"
ones. Exactly which ones had the larger throttle body, and again does
anyone recommend changing the (stock) one I've got now?
Thanks!

When you say "as log as you got everything sealed up tight," what do you
mean by this? If he is taking off the air cleaner box (the top half) how
could he have this still "sealed up?" Just wondering because I was thinking
of doing the same thing but don't want to hurt anything..
Thanks in advance!
