Ford sells a "Window Track Lube" that you can put on the felt in the upper door. I have owned 6 fords in my short life, and every one starting with the passengers window, has gotten slow. I have tried wd40 on the felt, and it works ok for a little while, but it gets on the window. I also tried a teflon stick lube on the window, but the track lube from ford works great. 1 tube will probablly last you a life time.
Diesel Prices can go down now, since I sold all of my real trucks.....

The filterminder can be reused if you fab something up, but not necessary.
The IAT sensor (intake air temp) that was in the stock air box must be reused, and can be simply zip-tied to some brake lines nearby the filter so that it can still get a reading of intake air temps.

Back to the original request…”maybe a list of things that are common upgrades to this engine. Simple to complex, cheap to expensive, benefit vs. cost”fficeffice" />>>
Obviously you guys have NAILED #1) list of things that are common upgrades. I would love if the group could take this a step further and come to a mutual understanding (never use the word agreement) of the rest of the question. I, as a demanding newbee, was hoping for something with the following data fields in a very pretty database format where you could list them by cost or by when you should do them…ahhhh a man can dream!
