Y'know, I wuz thinkin, that removing the gas tank would eliminate all those bends and a 10 gal or so fuel cell in the spare tire well, wouldnt raise the ctr of gravity, but really shift rear wheel loading to correct the hooking problems with a powerful engine???

I hear your are going to trade her in for an import???

The 5.4 swap has been called a bad idea, and considered an underpowered considerable waste of time, since 2007.

Nice to see that most donít think that anymore.

Well I heard worst they not bad I rented one from enterprise when I was in York it was comfortable plenty of room in the front seats but a little tight in the rear if the driver is tall. Got off the line fine but there was allot of torque pull on acceleration.
