Default 1997 F-150 Red rocket

Yes i know this is a 4x4 site but im out to do what ricky bobby said "I WANNA GO FAST!" i have a 97 F-150 with the 4.6L a modifed CAI. i had the K&N 77 set up then i messed with it have the air filter pretty much on the TB and a hood scoop directing the air to the filter. Pacesetter Longtube headers true duals into 3" Jegs cut-outs into 3" dynomax bullets and the pipes end there *Real exhuast set-ups dont need hangers or X-pipes and a huge E-fan. Also i have a pillar pod with water temp, trans temp and oil press. from Glowshift 140 bucks shiped for every thing. Just got some new shoes for the F-150 went from Dunlap radial rover to BFG A/T's 265/75/R16. im prob going to be heading to livernois as my next power up grade and have them dyno tune my truck. 400 dollars for 3 tunes a programmer and an hour on the dyno. 80 bucks for 2 dyno passes if you wanna get your truck dyno tuned i still have the number. Ill get some pictures of the Red rocket up in my next post.

Any other ideas on how to add HP?

i was thinking of getting a bottle for it but with my luck ill prob blow up the motor. ive already blown up a rear diff and a tranny in this thing. something to do with brake torques every day after school for 6 months... a buddy of mine is getting rid of his 2V 4.6L outta his mustang i was gonna buy it off him and build it up. or do you think i should just build this one up? Also i have a set of heads of a police interceptor but there from 94 i donno if they'll fit on my truck. i wanna gonna get cams and do head work then put them on.

ill save the big block for a ranger project 460 ranger anyone??...masterbeatty..hehe

red rocket sparky red rocket.



seriously dude, it's a 4.6 if you want it to be fast you are going to have some work to do. you'll feel more power from gears and a shift kit than you will from a custom tune. also...if you seem to want to stay with the 4.6 as your main category of power, you're s.o.l. until you get a power adder.

i just had the trans rebuild 1,000 and me and masterbeatty droped it our selfs they just did the rebuild. ive been thinking about regearing alot but i dont know anything about it. were to get it or how to do it. i had my rear diff replaced about 2 years ago...man brake torques are hard on these parts i guess :)

how bout 1 turbo or even 2..i was looking into the STS turbos for a while but i just dont have that kind of money. ive really been thinking about a 50-75 shot of Nitrous but with my luck id blow somthing up. Also does anyone know the website for the kit to put an Eaton M90 *Supercoupe 3.8L supercharger* onto a 4.6L? i can get an eaton M90 from my junkyard for 100 bucks. Thanks guys

i dont know much bout nitrous either. my buddys dad has a TB spacer he said hed drill out and put the nitrous jets in he told me just get the bottle and he'll help me do it. What are the rules about it? ive heard dont use it under 3,000rpm and dont bounce off the rev limiter with it. and also isnt 75 the most you can run safely on stock internals?

Looks like you need to do some research, as you dont seem to know much about anything. like what gear ratio would be good for power w/ the tire size you run, etc. find a site that deals more w/ the 4.6 in general, like power mods, forced induction, etc

looks like he forgot to mention its 2wd. he threw around the pre runner idea. but he wheels it eventhough its 2wd hes put it places i never though it would go. and he is on a f150 site but people there arnt as cool as the people here. and he does know a fair amount so before you go off on him pay attetion. gears and nitrous are involved for someone who is 20 and not much experiance around that. setting up gears is no walk in the park for the average person

thats why I payed somebody to setup my gears. I also know that if your rough on rear ends, etc. from brake torques, that it might not be the smartest idea to be putting $$ into nitrous or forced induction on a stock motor, when it is better spent on other things. Like gears, beefing up a trans to handle a beating, etc [I am also 20 yrs old]

well he has a brand new trans. i helped put it in. the rear diff also is new but its 3.55s because ford did it when the old one went boom not tryn to be a ya no out of line or anything but he didnt mention all his plans im sure. so maby askin what he planned to do would be better than assuming. i have a bottle for him to put in and i can make a throttle body spacer and drill and tap it but he knows that it would go boom with his right foot and a go fast button.
