    5 speed swap questions

    it does have to be from a F150 4.2 between 97-03 i believe. or can one from a F150 with a 302 in it. but the revision of the transmission does not matter if its m5r1 or 2. The 2 being a more beefy unit from what I have read.

    Torque Monster Headers

    If all I truly wanted was better sound what would be the best way to go? Without it being a drone on the highway. One of those gibson exhast systems? There like 365 on summit with 25 rebate. Or just having a shop do it be cheaper?
