On the other hand, it may be a second-rate system that will only start exhibiting problems a few years down the road. Ford went with the safe option... I'm not sure this is something I'd want to...

Really? The 2.7EB produces 325hp and 375 lb-ft... 5 more hp and 15 less lb-ft than my 2009 5.4, and with a much flatter torque curve. And the 5.4s, while not being the highest performance motor in...

Yep... does anyone even overhaul (routinely) motors anymore? Other than OTR trucks doing a million miles, of course. It's highly likely that the body, suspension, and transmission will go before the...

Well, you may doubt me, but my amp clamp doesn't lie. Keep in mind, this includes 2 200-watt sirens, wig wag headlights, about 30 lightheads, a 30" console full of radios, computer, and a few other...
