    Got the dual exhaust installed today. Deep, throaty, angry. I love me some big block beauty! The 460 never sounded better.

    And with that, your exhaust manifolds *should not* crack. The castings are too thin for the amount of heating they get. Look at your MPGs over the next few months; there should be a slight uptick.

    I suspect a slight drop in MPG. He just sounds *too good*.

    He should have the good manifolds on there already. The revised versions have reinforcing ribs that helped stop that cracking crap.

    It's a 96. I don't know when the manifold improvements came. But I do know he sounds like Sean's Ranchero. He said so himself.

    And I did the transmission fluid/filter change at the same time. So hopefully I will notice towing performance improvement.

    I'm with you there Andy. Once the new wears off, his driving pattern should show a bit of improved fuel use. Amazing how constipated the stock exhaust systems are on most Fords.

    He actually does feel a lot more peppy, but I don't know if that's in my mind.

    Mid 1975 thru 1976 on cars, 1978 on the trucks and vans. Should not have any worry about the manifolds. Pretty sure the outlets on the truck manifolds are larger than the car versions.

    I had my GoPro, that I never use, and thought a Barrett-Jackson type underbody shot might be cool. Next time I'm putting some lights next to the camera.
