that is a cj intake, the scj intake had a squarebore flange for the 780
holley. i have used both the squarebore and the spreadbore like you have the
best luck i have had was with a edelbrock adapter, very nice piece but it
also cost about 30 or 40 bucks.

Yes, I'm well aware of the 99 Lightning. I'm referring to after market,
shade tree, supercharging jobs. Like Paxton or Vortex.

Now let's try again...

PS: Thanks for the brand name on the factory blower. I'm surfing Eaton's
automotive site as I write.

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

Okay, what are you considering "decent gas
mileage" ??? Also is your
an overdrive unit, or a 3spd ? Along with that,
the rear gear ratio
have some effect as well ... on both efficiency
and spinning the tires
though I wouldn't expect the tires to turn over
with the 6cyl,
with a stock motor. What have you noticed that
changes about the
tranny as
it heats up ? You said its okay, until it heats
up, then what happens

Glad to hear the fluid was clean, that's a good
sign, even if it
taste any better that way. :)

Just my $.02

To answer your questions it has an 8.8 rear end
with something like 2.60 gears, a c-6, my gas
milage is very poor at 8-10mpg with only a slight
lead foot. Right after I start my truck up the
power is good and throttle response is quick,
after about 30 seconds it will move of course but
much slower there is a certain point where the
truck peaks in acceleration but with any more
throttle it seems not to go any faster. Several
times when the water temp was on the "A" of
NORMAL it wouldn't spin the tires in the mud!
Also a friend blew up his 2.5 s-1 but then let
it cool off and still beat me home, that was
embarassingto say the least. Also it has the
original 220k transmission,never rebuilt.

In the last couple months I've been testing my 300 with a Clifford 4bbl
intake, Edlebrock 600cmf carb and Clifford single out headers in a '77 E100
van. Engine is original with 140k+ miles. I had a massive hard time
getting the headers to bolt up and seal. When I believe I finally got
everything in place, the header was practically touching the starter (can't
believe that's good for the starter). I did miss a little low end, but the
2000+ rpms increase was very improved.

I wasn't prepared for the loudness of the headers. In the van, you are
practically sitting right next to the exhaust. So, this weekend the header
came off and some cast iron manifolds from a '96 F150 were put on. When
the rain stops, hopefully a quick trip around the block will prove this a
good choice!
