#31 of 45 F150 exhaust system ?
Apr 19, 2008 (5:00 pm)
I have a question about improving the sound of my exhaust. I have a 2005 F150 4x4 that I love, but it is missing that mean loud truck sound that I hear from many other trucks on the road. I have a side exhaust that is factory from Ford, but I want to know how I can inexpensively make my exhaust system louder without completely changing out my system. What products are best for loudening my Ford's exhaust, or what changes can I make to give me that good rumble that I hear from many other trucks?

#33 of 45 5.4L Triton exhaust backpressure
Jul 15, 2008 (4:40 pm)
New to the forum...hope I'm not opening a can of worms.
I'm thinking about putting open exhaust (OPEN) on my 02 f250 with the 5.4L, 6spd, 4WD, 3.73's in hopes of improving my mpg. Any thoughts on that (besides the EPA - there's no emissions testing in my state). If I do it, I plan on keeping the OEM system if I wind up having to put it back on. I've been having trouble finding any info on whether this engine needs a certain backpressure reading. There's no sensors in or after the cat, so I'm thinking I could run straights off the manifolds (if I can stand the noise) and the ECM wouldn't know the difference. Right now I'm getting 12-13mpg in town. Have a K&N filter, otherwise truck is stock.
#34 of 45 '95 F150 rail holes
Jul 16, 2008 (2:08 am)
My neighbor needs to drill tiedown holes through the railcaps on his short bed pickup, and would like to know if anyone knows the measurements so when he drills he comes through flush with the pre-existing holes on the rails themselves. He has a bedliner installed and thus can't tell from beneath where the holes are located. Precise measurements from the cab/front end of the bed would help him immensely.

Hi everyone I'm new to this so I'm a little uncertain how it works? My question is I have a 2006 F250 diesel fx4 lariat 4dr short bed can I put 35' tires on it w/o a lift?...or if a lift is needed what would be the smallest I can get away with?

#38 of 45 After market tires and rims
Aug 11, 2008 (10:44 am)
I have a 2008 F350 I recently put bigger tires and rims on. The low pressure sensor stays on all the time as these tires use less psi. Ford dealer says there is no way to change pressure sensor to work with these tires, Please help or send electrical tape.

Use the tpm tool that came with the truck, looks like a keyless entry remote.

I tried that tool, but it only calibrates between two different pressures. Will not work for my new tires. Thanks for replying though.
