Number one is pull codes and get all passed, 11 or 111 whichever your system shows.
Mine is as peppy as I need. If you want to drag race, a 5,500 pound rig it may not be the best choice. Mine will hold in OD pulling trailer and not drop but 3 mph with cruise on the hills but, I usually am nice to it and not suck as much gas with the cruise off. I just "shoot the hills."
The three best improvements on mine have been all new vacuum hoses, oxygen sensor, and rebuilt PCM. It probably has 15-20 per cent more power than 40K miles ago. Other replacements have been ECM. ACT, ICM, Distributor stator, TPS, all Mototcraft. Ford racing 9MM wires, cap rotor, NKG v-groove copper plugs, MSD? can't remember popular brand red coil. timing chain set and staying with 10W-30 (not 40) oil. K&N drop in air cleaner. Running 11 bdtc timing.
Then see if you want to spend money on more flow.
If your ignition control module is a black Motorcraft (CCD system) do not replace it with a gray one (Push Start system). The wiring harness is different.
FTE is great! Be a supporter to keep this forum going. 94 5.8 EB, towing package, K & N drop in, MSD Blaster, 9 mm Ford Racing Wires, mechanical oil and temp guages and the rest all stock.
Thanks for all the help, I ended up doing RAM air and holding off on turbo or supercharging. But, I've run into a problem. Lately, after around 6 minutes of driving my bronco starts getting way too hot. After I parked the other day I popped the hood to see if I had a radiator leak or something and I felt the radiator hose to see if there was pressure and there was none and it was burning hot. Also, at the radiator end of the hose there is a hissing at the clamp, which I've re adjusted several times now. Any ideas as to what this might be?
