      Buying a new truck tips.

      I was at a friends house saying I wanted to buy a new truck having beers with a few of the guys. Well my friend, and another guy I barely know both want new trucks too. We have only slightly hashed...

      One dynamic is that plenty of guys may want a old school sized truck. I parked my K20 next to a Colorado Z71 2wd, and it was the same height. Still a bit smaller, but it is a lot better then how my...

      My cousins bf has a Fiesta ST, and I talked him into letting me borrow it so I could test it out the way I live my life.

      I found it perfectly fine for four people in it including my 70 year old...

      Before I switched to HVAC I almost went into heavy mechanics which is supposed to be a lot better then auto mechanics. Or at least the way its been told to me.

      As a guy who drives a van everyday to work in the HVAC field. I am not a fan of these taller euro vans. As it is annoying to have to get a ladder to get the ladder off. My current 06 E150 is nearly 8...

      I think we need to define your 1000 pounds to some sense. No truck is going to do much better with a 1000 pounds of aero ruining stuff in the back.

      So run the truck till it cost you too much for...

      I looked at getting one a few years back do it being all aluminum for a Falcon build that fell through at purchase time.

      They have a few serious faults, dated tech, and lack of solid aftermarket...

      I will look into those after I find out about the 3.7 V6. Which should be tommorow afternoon.

      Also I found a 98 CV with 80,000 miles freshly wrecked $600 obo. So if it is there it will be mine...

      The CV was always a 2V engine, and yes they can be had for $1500 or less easily. They are in my top 5 options though.

      The 3V's your into Mustang or F150.

      They have more mileage, less power in 2V form, but easier to swap. CV's get snapped up for taxis fast. The 3V's are not a bad choice, but they seem to have a premium compared to later V6 models on...

      Tuning for Mustang

      I have decided I am going to throw a Mustang V6 in my project truck as my first choice, along with its 6 speed auto. This coincides with slamming the truck as much as possible now.

      So I need a...

      Lets put resale into perspective. If you get a upgrade free or stupid cheap it is worth it.

      Paying $4000 for 4x4 or what ever the package cost for $3000 on the back end is not smart money.

      Yes...

      The dual set up makes a world of difference in power, and mpg. Sort of like a VW Bug. You get both under normal driving due to vast increase in torque.

      They came out during the model A time when cars did not have a water pump, and on long up hill slopes car would over heat.

      In the 50's cars were pretty heavy, and water pumps not very good. So...

      It is a good engine, but not the best for mpg in a lot of cases. Some get good, and some not so much. Bolt-ons seem to wake them up really well.
