Re: Motor mounts

Autofab is the only company making what your looking for. I purchased a set a few years ago and they are very nice. I put these to the test many times and they are holding up great. You will feel a little more vibration, but not a significant amount. https://autofab.com/i-9621949-80-96-ford-truck-30...

Re: EFI swap

It is most likely caused by driving with broken motor mounts. I don’t see another way for that to happen other than getting T boned, or tristing your driveshaft into a pretzel

It’s also strange that the trucks under 8,500 pounds shows an 8.9:1 compression ratio. I wouldn’t think it would be possible to raise the compression and shorten the seat to seat valve timing.

Thanks for the explanation, that changes the way I have been thinking. Matchbox is extremely helpful.

So Intake temps are a factor of PV=NRT, turbine efficiency, and inter cooling. How do you figure combustion temperature?
