    Spark plug choices...

    Ok, first some info for those that don't know. I have a 5.0 P head from a 99 ex in my 02 sport Trac. Even with the 4.10 gears, I'm getting about 17-18 mpg. My goal is to hit 20. I'm due for a tuneup, and with new plugs, wires, and fuel and air filters changed I'm pretty sure I can reach my goal...

    Which intake is better?

    Soon I'll be strapping an eaton to my motor, and I was looking at the 5.0 truck efi lower intake, and the runners (rectangle)look larger than the gt40 runners (round). Keep in mind I won't be using the upper plenum of either, just the lower. Right now I have a choice of either an 89 mustang...

    5.0 swap into 2002 Sport Trac

    This is starting the teardown of the donor. Removal of the inner fender on the driver side was required, as the battery box was over the AC compressor. Since there is the possibility that I might rebuild the donor with ST’s original motor, both inner fenders and the core support needed to be...

    Some people got nerve!

    I just saw this on the news... A 30 yr old man is asking the state of tn to pay for his child support. He has 30 kids from 11 marriages, ranging from toddler to 14 yr olds. He only makes minimum wage and the state takes half of his check to divide amongst the children. I say the dumb a$$...

    Project ST- yet another V8 swap....

    Back in Nov 09 I did a V8 swap on my ranger, SVT. I was surprised at how much better the truck performed. Now the time has come for yet another V8 swap on my DD, my 02 Sport Trac 4x4, since the 4.0 is showing its age at 189k miles (and the previous owner ran it hard). I found a good candidate, a...

    9" gearing

    Ok members, I have a HP 60 front that I want to run 538's, and I'm planning to build a 9" for the rear, but my choice of gearing is either a 529 or a 543. I know .05 ratio difference is acceptable, but to me I'm not really comfortable running that much a difference. I will see quite a bit of...
