1,45$/liter no,not too excited ,we became slaves to OPEC.Talk to some guy with F-350
city truck and is running on propane/gas system .Hmmmmm,wonder how much it would cost to convert?Propane's about half price soo it would pay for it self in a couple of years.
Have 2 friends running EX'sPSD, and even with their"economic" trucks they started to complane long time ago,go figure,diesel 1.60$ today.

propane might be 1/2 the price, but its less efficient, and produces less power... do some research before seriously considering that!!!

hey zbig... busy here. your poor mileage could be a number of things... 10 cylinders being the main culpret... have you done a thorough tune up lately?? how's your tire pressure?? in all honestly?? i think the quality of gasoline has gone to the toilet. i've noticed a decrease in my s'crew's mileage in the past little while. 18mpg on the highway isn't too terrible though!!

no not running yet... would you believe me if i told you I also had a 1/4" piece missing off my exhaust valve as well cylinder number 9 has a heli coil in it huuummmmmmmm I wonder what caused the exhaust valve to fail

I tell yea sherm, if this ever happens again, I'am pulling the motor and drop in a 3 valve v10 with a torque shift tranny "they say it won't work" I'll make it work, tunning

things should start coming together really quick by the end of this month more parts then I can count are all cleaned, bolt down patterns are printed along with rattings, tools, gaskets and all parts are here so, it's only a matter of time.

heli coil... thats weird!! say, while you got her apart, why not try to find a set of 3v heads to put on there?? you might find something at a wrecker!!

i'm pretty sick of the fuel prices, but nothing i can do. i heard that saudi arabia is going to start an investigation into why the western world is being charged so much. they know that it doesn't cost that much, and their scared that if the price keep going up, they'll lose business due to lower sales!!

that sounds like a very friendly idea but... the only problem with that is the intake the 3 valver has a veriable plenium intake which I have no idea how to control, Now if we were talking about pi heads. I'll wait, for a blown v10 I've been seeing them go for 450-650 bucks. Rebuild the thing bigger cam 3 valver heads... oh the possibillities forged pistons take some cc's out of the heads hit the motor with 18psi of turbo charging wisdom, I'd say 550hp/950tq, man dreaming's great till then I want this bad girl back on the road, got a road trip the third week of july.

also updated my gallery, some pics of when I went to my friends in early december

you put a respectable cam, intake manifold and PI heads, headers and true duals w/X-pipe and you're already at 550hp i'd say... i want a ride
