Just an FYI too, the rotors on the front are the same from 78-96 ... Tony
had that problem with his 93, ordered rotors for his 78 at just over half
the price and bolted those on ...

I went up to Oreillys this morning and checked on sleaving. They said
you could sleeve a cracked cylinder wall. Then when I was happy with
that response I asked for what I thought would be the unhappy response.
How much? Then I got the quote for only 45 bucks! So I was very happy
then. I told them I would be brining the motor down on Monday to make an
appointment and so they could ship it up to Springfield, which is the
same place I got my first machine job done on the motor.

>>> Hopefully you've since relocated the air intake ... :)
I put the stock stuff back on the motor when I put it back in. But after
this second go around I will be custom building an intake to take
advantage of better flow and best location to avoid water. (And I
probably won't go through water again like that). I am planning on
coming out of the throttle body and then making a turn and put a K&N
conical filter right beside the upper intake on top of the drivers side
valve cover. I am also planning on removing the stock fan eventually and
replace it with an Electric one with a manual shut off switch inside.
And besides that.. After taxes and spring arrives, if plans go right, it
should be sitting 4in higer :) Along with 33x12.50 TSL SSR's. :)

This might be better in the water cases, but likely not in the power case
... that will be WARM air there which won't give you quite as much power as
it would if it were cold air ... if you have your fender liners in still,
you may be able to get some good cool air from in there and keep the water
out at the same time ...

Sounds like a plan, I was playin with a 5.0 today and all I could hear was
that fan wirring and thinking how much more power I would have with an
electric ...

Subject: FTE Perf - Warranty's

Okay I finally got the name of the warranty law/act that was in question a
bit ago about aftermarket parts:

Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act

I haven't done a search to see how it reads exactly, but now maybe you've
got a starting point.

Subject: FTE Perf - ADMIN: the SPAM

To all Ford Truck Enthusiasts list members:

A spammer subscribed to all our mailing lists and
managed to post his garbage to two of the lists
before I managed to put a halt to it. As you may
know, we take measures to fight spam and protect
email addresses, including, but not limited to, use
of a robots.txt exclusion file, POP before sendmail
confirmation, subscription confirmation for the
discussion groups and blocking web access to known
email harvesting sites.

However, even with all these measures, there is
nothing that can be done against a spammer who
subscribes, confirms the subscription and then
spam. The spammer has been blocked from the lists
so they cannot post again. We have, however, not
unsubscribed them. This means they cannot unsubsribe
and will have to find a way to deal with the 100s
of emails the live lists sends out.

Please do not make the problem worse by posting about
it here, the issue has been resolved. I strongly
urge you to send email the spammers TRUE email address
at ldchen webresearch.8m.com and express your thoughts.

We are preparing a bill for them for the time spent
to block their email address and to clean up their
spam from the lists. We've notified them that we
will seek a small claims case if we are not paid since
the FAQ clearly states that anyone who spams the lists
will be billed for the cleanup.
