I don't see why not, as long as you didn't destroy anything else behind the
cylinder wall you should be fine ...


Hopefully you've since relocated the air intake ... :)

Subject: FTE Perf - Advice Request

I just purchased a 2000 Ford F250 Super Duty with the Super Cab and the
Triton 6.8L V-10. I am looking at adding some bolt on horsepower and torque.
I just ordered a K&N Filter to start, but I am looking at more serious work
for next year. I have been looking at starting with a free flow exhaust
package and I have seen information about three companies on the Web. I have
seen info on two packages by Bates, and one from both Borla and Gibson. One
of the packages from bates includes a header replacement, while the lower
end "Stinger" package doesn't. I am also looking at a longer term project of
adding a supercharger, but I have only seen one company have a bolt on
package for the V-10 - Paxton. I am looking for opinions about which might
be the better long term choice, I have not yet been able to find any
non-partial comparisons between the three companies exhaust system products
and would appreciate any information anyone can provide.

Thanks,
Shaun Mahoney

I don't know much about the companies mentioned and have never worked with
them. That said, to optimize the benefits of the charger you will want/need
headers. I have seen where 4.6L shorty headers have been modified to
include the extra cylinder on each side. Do any of them put in high-flow
cats in place of the stock restrictive ones? That is another place to gain
big horsepower ... the modular motors are pretty choked on the exhaust side,
and moderately choked on the intake, if you open those up you will probably
find quite a bit of horsepower.

You will want to be careful not to kill your low end torque, but a super
will put most of that back if you lose any. You might also talk with
Steeda, their timing adjuster may be available for the V10 as well ... or
they may know if it works or not, from what I hear that adds a ton of low
end to it ...

Subject: FTE Perf - AOD lost O/D

I have a 302 w/ AOD from a '92 Mustang in a '90 Ranger (didn't do the swap
myself). I don't know much about the history but the AOD had a shift kit
added and shifts pretty hard. Last week, the shift from 3rd into overdrive
started getting mushy and today overdrive quit alltogether. If I keep it
in drive, eveything's fine but as soon as I shift to O/D, it's as if it's
in neutral.

The fluid level looks ok, actually a little high, but it's an aftermarket
dip stick so I'm not sure just where it should normally read.

Is there anything else I can check or should I just bring it to the shop?

From: George Miller
Subject: FTE Perf - Spark Plugs - 460

I run, depending on the weather, Autolite 35s and 33s. It runs better
with the colder plug but they load up real quick. The 35s run too hot
(almost white deposits), no matter what metering rod/jet combo I use in
an Edlebrock 750 and timing from 32-36 degrees total advance. There
ain't no 34 and I was wondering what other plugs people are running in
the 460. These are the 18mm in DOVE heads, 9.6:1 CR. Any advice would be
appreciated.

TIA,

George Miller

Subject: FTE Perf - Front Disk brakes

I just learned an expensive lesson today concerning disk brake wear out on a
92 F-150. Most of you probibly are already aware that there is no wear
indicator to give advance warning that the pads need to be replaced. I have
always been relying on the sound the wear indicator made but without this on
the F-150 I ended up replacing both rotors as well as the pads. Just
information if you can use it.
