Subject: FTE Perf - Super Chip

Has anyone installed or heard any first hand reports on
"Super Chips" new chip for the F250 V10? They claim 29 hp
and 36ft/lbs increase for $495 the down side being high
octane fuel and " a slight decrease in mpg" at 10.5mpg right
now on reg. unleaded I'm not sure I can afford the chip but
if the specs. aren't inflated I'm going to try it.

Ford never offered the 460 in a 4X4 until 1980.

You might be able to hit third but at that slow of a speed you won't
know it because it will be so soft since you will probably have to let
off the gas.

Some C6s don't even allow manual 2nd like traditional Fords. But third
is just 1,2,3.

It's not that big a job once you have it out, I'm sure you know that the
valve body just comes right off and then you just remove the pump and a
couple snap rings and you basically have the whole gear train on your

Good luck,

>You wouldn't by chance know the part number of these rods would you ?

I think they are C2AE-B or C
I believe the C6AE's were in the base 427's......


You're welcome...

I purchased a Superchip form Superchip Inc. in Longwood, FL about 12,000
miles ago for my 5.4L F-250SD. It has performed well above expectation
since installation, more than met the claims and Dyno'd better than
guaranteed. I highly recommend Superchips Inc., even though the price for
the V-10 and the PSD is high. It's well worth the investment.

Subject: FTE Perf - ADMIN: New chat

There's a new chat server up. This is experimental and
there are no promises that we'll keep this chat server.

This chat server has the following features:

1. Lightning fast (it came with C++ source code so I
tweaked it even more)

2. Security. Requires you to register a valid email
address in order to use it (hotmail, yahoo, juno etc.
are blocked). A password is emailed to you that
you can use indefinately. Sorry about the blocked
addresses, but this is to prevent someone from
getting an email address, harassing someone on chat
and disappearing without a trace.

This server has a logging feature that will soon
be enabled. This feature allows any user to tattle
on another user for obscene language, threats, etc.
This feature immediately logs the users email address,
nickname and ip, along with the offending text and
emails it to the admin (me).

3. Stable (so far). This server uses less than 300k of
RAM. We'll find out if its as good under load. Its
been running for 8 hours in my tests without any

4. High load capability with little server resource
usage. Right now I have it set for a maximum of 50
users at once. I can turn the limit up to 5000.

5. Ability to send private messages

6. Multiple rooms (to be added)

7. Does **not** require Java. Right now only the Java
client is working. The telnet version is being tested
for those who don't have a Java capable browser.

8. Much more (I'm still learning!)

Enjoy, and please report any problems to:
