Anyone here into trucks and performance after market parts? Well heres the deal pretty much what im getting at.
May be getting my grandfathers 1997 F150 XLT Lariat Supercab 4x4 Automatic 4.6L V8. It only has 18,000 miles on it (never driven) My question is, I plan to have a mechanic go through and check everything (primarily the valves/plugs/gaskets and seals) For performance, I planned to install a Cold Air induction kit, and a performance exhaust.
1. sound like a truck not a little car (growl like a V8) magnaflow, and flowmaster suggested
2. have more "umph" like a V8 should have
3. cost effective
4. not too many parts for upgrading
My basic concerns are sound and performance. I have heard if you want loud sound go Flowmaster, if you want loud sound and performance go with Magnaflow exhausts.
The Cold air intake is probably going to be an Air Force 1 brand kit from Troyer Performance since that is is the same price as all the other top competitors and it yields the most improvement in HP and overall performance. (DYNO proven).
Well, let me know if there are any other motorheads out there!
