Default Greetings from Nebraska

While I don't have a Bonneville, I wanted to atleast be nice and introduce myself I found the forum and thought it would be a great place to ask a few questions I've got about my friends. I'm doing some maintenance work on it for her and want to make sure of things before hand.

I will say the 8th gens are my favorite though You'll see in my signature that I've got a '94 T-Bird and 03 F150, both V8'*. The truck is bone stock, the T-Bird is far from stock While the stay may be short, I hope to enjoy my time and be able to find the info I need.

Thanks
-Andy "Melon"

I see that - looks real nice I've got a few mods planned for my truck, but nothing drastic. It'* the daily driver and I care about dependability.

Other than having a brake caliber lock up, my truck has been very dependable. The performance mod'* I've added include opening the exhaust and intake, and and Edge Performance programmer. It has the 5.4L motor and I get 17 to 18 MPG on the freeway with it - which is about 1 to 2 MPG better than I had stock.

Exhaust I'm doing, mostly for sound. I haven't thought about an intake or a programmer. I have heard that the 3v 5.4L'* respond well with those mods but not sure about the 2v'*.
