90k auto trans -seems like its geared tall - always seems kinda gutless w/load for such a huge motor
Want to feed her some more air and get the exhaust flowing
Need thoughts on what to put on? Banks headers are still y-type -do I need dual pipes?
Is there a good cold air system for my truck?
Any thoughts on what works the best and fits rite?
Mike - Portland OR
Bought used at 60k - I did get the build sheet form ford, got to find it, all I can say rite now is tall. 70mph 2400rpm in o/d guessing off the top of my head.
Regardless I still want to open up intake and exhaust
LONG before I went S/C I put the Banks torque tubes and exhaust on. No necessarily for power but to do away with the prone to crack manifolds. Honestly, didnt notice much power increase. Then I replaced the Throttle body. THAT was the single most power increase I noticed on this truck before the S/C
I've seen the stock Y pipe is really restrictive, so I would say any kind of upgrade there would help. Headers too?
My '96 F350, I bumped the timing up to 10* and it really helped, along with cutting the intake tubes. I never changed exhaust beyond a Superturbo muffler and turndown. Once I put the Vortech on it, that was the catz azz! Sure do miss that truck.
Yuck - poor neglected truck
Looking truck over - opened air box and found the paper air filter plum saturated with oil and filthy. Guess the little square filter is suppose to go in the bottom side of the box but it was just laying in a pile of goo in the bottom of the box. Might explain some gutless ness and bad mpg. (( no air. ))
I'll get that fixed now but still want to do my upgrades
Thinking I will just go with the full power pack system from banks? Plus add bbk TB and hi-flow cat (( any thoughts ))
Ordered power pack system from banks today. Bbk TB from summit. Started PB blasting all the nuts and bolts in my system. Found rt, rear manifold nut is broke off. I'm asuming all the studs come out to be replaced with bolts? Hope I can get that rear stud out! Never noticed any leaks. Anyway I'm replying to myself now. Any thoughts on my project please chime in
More parts on the way
Magnaflow - cat
Ford racing - wires
Msd - cap rotor & coil
Trucks getting the treatment this year. Just put on 4" skyjacker lift air bags and 35" nitto grapplers
Banks power pack
Cat, plugs, wires, cap, rotor
Have been waiting 4yrs sense I got the truck to save enough (and for the tires it came with to ware out) to do all this
I knew when I 1st saw this truck (all stock one 1" scratch on the hole thing) that it was for me
