Couple of q's for ya
Hello all, I currently own a 2000 Super Duty but just came across a great deal on a lower mileage 97 obs that has a couple of problems and Im wondering if I should pick it up? My main reason for considering this is because it is a 4 door and I don't have to smog a 97 here in California.
The biggest issue is that it is a California edition which I hear is no good? It has some issues regaurding the PCM which I figure relates to it being a CA edition. It will run just fine and then out of the blue just die. Sometimes you can start it up sometimes not. Is there a way I can convert to an older or newer PCM?
My next round of questions Involves performance. How much power can I make without an intercooler? Meaning when is it a necessity? Same question goes for and e-fuel conversion? Do I need to do that? I would plan on a d66, baby swamps or something similar, valve body and possibly a TQ, and tunes,gauges,intake.
One last thing, I will be going off to college in the fall and the climate there compared to the valley in California will be significantly different in regards to temperaturs. It will be way colder where im going and which truck do you think would handle it better?
Sorry for the long post, thanks in advance.
