Ken.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoy these lists. I don't contribute to
often, but I do chime in once in a while. I do, however, look forward to
coming home each night and checking in with all of my "friends" on the net,
to see what everyone has been up to with their trucks. I am very surprised
that you only got 250 responds to the survey, considering the large audience
that you reach. Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for all of your effort,
and that it is very much appreciated.

Hi all.
    I read all the responses to the 2nd gear thread in the C6 trans. As
stated, the 2nd gear start off feature is great, but I was surprised that no
one mentioned the "hill holding" capability of it as well. If you are stopped
on a steep grade, ie, a steep boat ramp while launching or retrieving your
boat, of sitting at a stop light at the top of California street in San
Francisco, just put it 2nd, and as long as the engine is running, your rig
can't roll backwards down the hill.

    Just another advantage of the Ford transmissions.

    P. S. C4's work the same way.

    Rix56, The Rat.

Thank you to everyone who answered my earlier post on headers. I've decided to go with the L&L fenderwell headers and would like any input regarding exhaust routing. I'm tossing around whether to go with it down the outside of the frame rail to a tube type muffler and a turn out or wrap the pipe back over or under the frame and use the flowmasters and turndowns. Any suggestions, opinions or pictures are appreciated. Thanks.

Outside the frame rail can be run to the back of the truck, or turned out
before the rear wheel.  You will have straighter pipes also, than inside
the frame.  All of the pipe will be up and out of harms way.

I don't see why flowmasters, or any other mufflers can't be used outside
the frame rail besides tube types.
