Unless you add a supercharger, locking rear diff., z-rated tires, and revamp
your electrical system along with the usual headers and dual cat back
exhaust I don't think you'll have a chance.

We just bought a used 1997 Ford F-150 with 16,000 miles and we now find that
there is a hum now and then, not always, from the transmission. It occurs
when it is in the final gear and we have heard it at 35 MPH and at 55 MPH.
Is this normal or is it an indication of tranny problems to come?
