460

There's a lot of talk about the toy engines, please don't forget the real ones Ford made. The 460 in my 97 is awesome. SD on both my 460s (5spds) is absolutely trouble free, but the simplicity of...

belt size

I used a 5060475 and found it a titch long, the 470 length works better and places the alt adjust slot right in the middle. Take the pump off, get rid of the garbage, the check valves will hold the...

I would only run with Banks full exhaust system, spendy but well worth it. I've over 60,000 miles on the headers put on in '01. Their muffler is awesome, not noisy but very throaty. The heavy...
