I think Darwin Awards LLC makes a chip for that... The only appropriate place to go that fast is on a well maintained track. I'm sure your truck could be built up enough to make it possible, but...

Hinges, latches and posts for ATV ramp tailgate?

I'm wondering what would be in my best interest to install for hardware on a homemade ATV ramp. I have spent little time tinkering with 12th gen trucks, as it is my 9th gen's that need it most.

If you have cast iron manifolds in good shape you can take them to a respectable builder that does headwork and get them planed. Many people have had good luck doing this and not running gaskets at...

I have had good luck with fel-pro kits from napa. The biggest factor in doing a head job well is getting every surface clean, even, and flush relative to the desired result. To me gaskets are gaskets...

I'm not sure about the sending units on those older motors, but you want a pre-72 or an 88-97 timing set. I'm not sure if you will get a double roller set if you order the older ones, so I would get...

I hope you found a matching one. You aren't getting and ATF leak to the harness are you? That will cause untimely/no shifts also. I would have ziptied the plugs together and ran with it, but it...

You're knocking on an old door in this thread. This doesn't get brought up too often on FTE, but it does on 460ford. You could try searching there also. I am still of the pro EFI camp, and would...

You may have weakened the starter by getting it hot more than a few times. A heat shield will work better than the sleeve and the wrap. My banks kit came with a shield that is probably 18 gauge and...

Only if you are going over .500 lift. Lobe separation is equally important, and should not be too tight i.e. under 111 should be avoided. Also any duration over 214 @ .050" lift is bad for speed...
