    if grandpa is a billionaier, why such an old truck? why not ask for a SRT-10 or Ford Lightning if you want fast + truck?

    that was my 1st thought anyway.

    I'm not running premium fuel, that is out of the question.

    Its going to be just a pickup truck, towing occasionally, but primarily driving around, hauling stuff on and off.

    I think a cold air intake and performance muffler would do wonders for it, but I'm going to have to talk to over with my friend, who has loved Ford his entire life, works for them and has his own business as well.

    Lauderdale, I'm pretty sure it is an SOHC. But not 100% sure.

    Bugfreak, because I cannot pay for the GAS for an SRT-10, nor would he buy that for me, I'm not a mooch.

    cool- you have the 4.3L Vortech? That was in my last truck and ROCKED! The Jet stage 2 module was awesome. Just need intake, exhaust, and low temp thermostat.

    Do E-fans cost more than the other ideas you're kicking around? If all you want is for it to be "just a pickup truck, towing occasionally, but primarily driving around, hauling stuff on and off", you don't actually need to spend anything because it's one of those already. But if you'll feel more fulfilled having 350 hp to get you to the laundromat instead of only 300 hp, then get out the credit card and go for it.

    Efans cost about what my total plan of attack is for more than one upgrade. (CAI and muffler) The efans aree around from what I have found $120-500 The lower end is a single large fan, higher end is a dual fan combo, I'm assuming one way or the other each cool your truck sufficiently, but the dualies are probably more efficient perhaps.

    I put an e-fan in my rx7 a few years back. In total the whole thing cost me about $50 bux. I got the fan from a junkyard and a controller from Pep Boys.
