My booster works fine but makes a clicking sound from within, I'll have to check this out.

My dad's 89 F250 4x4 351W was 10xs worse then that and the truck ran like a top we had some old plug wires laying around and we didn't like the way the ones on their looked (chewed up and such from sitting) and we put the ones we had laying around and it ran like crap next day went into town and got a set of plugs and wires and the truck ran even better and we went from 8 mpg to around 13-14 MPG city/hwy mix and the truck has more power then I think it has ever had. Even worse the old plugs were champions. I hate champions I always run autolite plugs in my trucks.

Well I didn't have anything going on today so I thought I'd try tinting the windows. I tried once last year on the side windows alone and it turned out like **** so i left it be until today. After Two rolls, lots of razor blades and some beer, I have my final product

I have a small strip left the width of the windshield so I might add a lower tint strip yet too.
