You can be rest assured that the glass puppy is long gone.

Subject: FTE Perf - air intake, hedders, muffler

A little assistance, list, if you please.

When the time comes, would it be better to purchase the Gale Banks "system"
(Powerpack), which includes all three and, I'm sure, has been designed to
work together OR buy the best K&N intake system, a set of headers/hedders
(which one? Hedman, Jardine, Edelbrock, etc.), and a (which one? Borla,
Gibson, Flowmaster, etc.) muffler/exhaust/cat-back system?

Banks system comes, I believe, with a K&N filter, but, I do not believe that
it will be the latest and the greatest. I believe it's just a filter-element
replacement for the factory version in the factory housing. I would like the
large, open-air units that K&N makes. Or would it even make a difference?

Headers/hedders (whichever way it's spelled?). Are there REALLY any others
that are better than the rest? I seem to remember something I read somewhere
about one of the manufacturers having something called a "Power Pickle", but,
I can't remember which one. Is a hedder just a hedder or does someone out
there have it "dialed-in" and no one else does?

Cat-back. Power & performance between manufacturers is probably pretty equal.
What I'm concerned about is SOUND! P&P also. But, sound is utmost on my mind.
I would prefer a slightly low(er) sound (from stock), not too harsh though,
NOT TOO LOUD, basically something a bit "noticeable."

What are YOUR thoughts, list?

TIA

From: "James D"
Subject: FTE Perf - Anti Freeze

I had a question about Anti freeze. Basically, how cold can it get when
mixed with water before it does freeze? Would the ratio's that the
manufacture suggest be best, even for EXTREMILY cold conditions? The
reason I ask is because I am going to build a water block to cool the CPU in
my computer and want to know how cold can I get it? Thanks
BTW, anyone know what would cause my charging system in my 79 ford van to
charge at full blast all the time? Two different regulators did the same
thing. Some of my wiring got kinda fried when I touched a wrench to the
postive terminal while at the same time touching the ground of my voltage
regulator, so it could be a big electrical mess now. I have gone though 6
Wells regulators, the last one charged full blast, and I had the store test
it and it tested bad. I went and bought a higher quality one - borg I
believe and it did the exact same thing as my last one. So I wonder, could
that last one I bought have been bad too? So many iffy things. the
alternator is brand new too btw - thanks again

Well, yeah, Ford SVT supercharges them every day to go into the Lightnings.
They use an Eaton supercharger with 8psi boost (I think).

Subject: FTE Perf - D00E-9425-E What do I have?

I got an intake today at a swap meet, didn't look to carefully, after
better inspection it seems that it takes a rochester carburetor :(. I
really dislike the Q-Jet. I think this is a 429CJ intake, but am really
not sure. Next question, who makes a good adapter to use a holley
flange on the Q-Jet bolt pattern, I saw in Summit one that was ported,
and one that wasn't, can anyone help me out here as to what the
difference is?

later
