Ford info... Who cares?

well I wanted to write tech artical about something I knew well, seems to me that would be fords, chevys and dodges, but I need a subject? anyone got any ideas?

I could post a bunch of redundant stuff about axles but that gets boring.

but I'll do some for ****s & giggles

Try starting a new thread for this question, and I'm sure you will get some responses

if you don't understand what smog pumps do then heres how it works....

the smog pump is set up to inject air into the unburnt gases in the exaust, it then ignights and burns hotter when reaching the catylest. it then able to make the cat work more effectently by burning hotter. so with that said the air pump only promoates effecency in the cat, so if the cat is gone the pump does no good.

Also, it may not be an issue - If you don't run an air pump for awhile, it'll freeze up and be useless. If ya ain't got a cat, yank it off! :)

I'd be curious about a writeup about possible upgrades for the 5.0L I6 engine and/or specs.

the best upgrade I have seen for 300 I6 is tied to a rope at the bottom of a lake
