I'm surprised no one mentioned this...

You said you spend a lot of time in the mountains. Normally aspirated
engines like the V-10 lose 2-4% of their horsepower for every 1000 ft. of
altitude over sea level. The PSD has a turbo and does not suffer from this
problem. As a matter of fact, Ford has stated that it will tow its maximum
rated capacity up to 10,000 ft. of altitude in "extreme temperatures" with
no degradation in performance (their claim, not mine). Of course, you could
always supercharge or turbocharge the V-10...

Regards, Bud

Neil; No experience with those, but an interesting alternative is vacuum
hydraulic brakes. BluDot makes them and can be reached at 219-259-5400. No
web site that I know of. - Bud

Subject: FTE 97up - HyperTech Chip

I recently purchased a 99 F150 4x4 5.2L Automatic and was wondering if
anyone has any experience with the HyperTech computer chip. My
understanding is that it might help with the shifting of the automatic.
It seems to me that the tranny shifts to OD to soon.

Any thoughts are appreciated.
