The Machine

Well guys and gals, for those of you who do not live in the florida area, Your lucky. The hurracanes are really killing us this season. As for me, the work load really got crazy. . Oh well, k sera sera,the spelling is not right but then again neither is anyone who chooses to work rescue. Good news out of all of this is, the SVTF has sustained no damage. the neighbor lost his stang to a 40 foot tree, oops. anywho the car is running great with no problems, just changed the oil at 3500 miles to mobil 1, I had the 5w 30 from my old truck so I figure why not use it, I was also told by the auto parts store that k&n does not make a oil filter for the svtf yet. is this true. Working 48 on and 24 off really sucks the big ying yang. no time to dick off. any ways the oil is changed with big dif in the way the car is running, no power gains which I don't expect. but the gas milage will probably go up a tad, it just runs better, atleas in my opinion. Why is it that freaking people would try and run a generator in a clsed space. People never cease to amaze me, we have had a awfull lot of carbon dioxide poisinings.

With Great Power; Comes great Responsibility!
Drive it like you stole it.....

I am using the K&N Filter, the ford part corss references to a fram, and the fram cross referenced to that, check out K&N site, they have it listed.
