    351 swap possible if lowered?

    Yea thats what i figured, but maybe a slightly modded hood(well modded), would make it work? I wouldnt mind sacrificing a little of my drop, but i definately dont want stock height or lifted, so I hope a new hood will do the trick, or cut and weld mine somehow.

    351 swap possible if lowered?

    Yea my main concern was clearance, being lowered quite a bit i worry about an already tight area to work with(like exhaust clearance and such), i guess the only way to know for sure is pull the old one and get a new one ready to drop in to see what needs to go and stay eh?

    want to drop my X

    with a 2" drop, thus not flipping the torsion bar, your ride quality will not diminish much(still noticable though), and some stuff may rattle but its mostly easy fixes. Im dropped over twice that much and have been for over half a year, its not that bad trust me, just get good shocks.

    Airbox mod

    The "heat shield" in the front doesnt do anything in case you were wondering...im actually thinking that it hinders performance because now less air enters through the front(seeing as how on the stock setup there was a spot for air to come in through the front of the vehicle)...but thats just my...

    want to drop my X

    Of course it will have some affect(screwing up), but 2-3" shouldnt be too bad, it will just make your joints wear faster and such, just search around for topics on it.

    351 swap possible if lowered?

    I was thinking of moving most of the stuff around, like maybe relocating stuff like washer fluid, battery, etc to the cargo area...make like a custom box for it or something. I have another question though should i try and keep EFI or carb it, what are the pros/cons? *edit*-i was also...

    351 swap possible if lowered?

    Hey i did the torsion flip a while back and am on 20s. I would like to swap my 302 for a 351w stroked to a 427, would that be possible being lowered so far (about 4 or 4.5 inches)?

    Flowmaster Super 40 series

    What is the difference between the SUPER 40 series and just the 40 series. I mean I would imagine a bit louder but has anyone had both or can help me out here? Im looking into getting true duals for my 5.0 and I know most people say 3 inch is too big so i was going to do 2.5", but I cant decide...

    Crates and Strokers...What engine upgrade should I do...

    Im looking into getting a 427 off ebay and having a local machine shop help out, any other problems I will run into besides the ones previously mentioned, and also will it be worth it really?

    Crates and Strokers...What engine upgrade should I do...

    Yea i was looking at some 351w that have been stroked to 427 and im glad to see that it would work without too much modification, i just might be headed down that road in not too long. But where should I go for the custom parts, just a machine shop around here or is there a good place online...

    Crates and Strokers...What engine upgrade should I do...

    Just curious but what would be the biggest/best engine to drop into an explorer, if you already have the 5.0 and want to swap for the baddest motor out there, but dont want to modify the body too much(like minor hood, etc) basically make it a monster sleeper, and what trans etc?

    Vibration in peddle on accelleration

    I noticed this the other day when driving my girlfriends explorer sport(2002), at any speed if you press the pedal a certain way or just on occasion you get a vibration right on the pedal. What should I get checked out on it?

    i want new rims but am stuck on what to get...

    22s are going to be quite a bit more PITA, 20s will look fine if you lower it, but if you must have 22s be ready for quite a few headaches.

    Ford Racing or Torque Monster

    I was just looking through Summit Racing and saw the Ford Racing Hi-flow short headers w/ 1 5/8 in. tubing. Are the torque monster headers really worth the extra $300?

    Apten Chip still the best??

    A flasher sounds like the way to go, so another question, when modding my EX should i wait and do the chip last, or is it just as easy to get it now and have it re-flashed...how much is a flasher anyways? EDIT- And also if you want to change programs you gotta come back to the garage...
