If i had the cash and time I could make a turbo 300 six that was EFI easy its not to difficult if you understand the systems at play. it would have to be a 96 but still can do it with some fabrication.

as for the inline six the first I6 was produced in 1903... no joke look it up Spyker was the first to make them so considering they used the basic design all the way till now its pretty good. there still using the I6 set up in BMWs thats one hell of a run i got to say.

yeah I honestly was not expecting such crappy preformance from the dorman its a simple thing but Motorcaft is the winner so far. Im not messing around i thrown 3 belts and the tentioners where junk right out of the box pretty much. one item i will always buy from ford is the tentioner for sure.

Got two free F150Forum stickers in the mail today, took only a few days after requesting it, didn't know i would get two, but since i did, i applied one to each vent window, will post picture later.

Also adjusted the angle of my headlights as they weren't flush with the turn signals, luckily Ford put ***** above them to easily adjust them with no tools. Lastly, i discovered that I have a very slow leak in a brake line, going to fix that asap.

Took off the rubber band and replaced with Zip Tie for the Zip Tie mod. However...I hate the clacking. I'll adjust that.

Picked out the Exhaust tip for when she goes in next week for new exhaust.
I'm going with Dual Glasspacks and single out.
