    my truck is a 1993 ford f-250 4x4 with a 5.8l 351 in it. i was wonder what i could do to my truck to make it get better horse power, run and sound better, get better gas milage, and just over all improve the truck. i already plan on installing a cold air intake, all new brake pads, brake lines, and new drums. it has a brand new oil pan.im putting a new fan belt and wiper motor in it. im also installing a new ignition switch. anything you guys would suggest i add to my truck?

    what would you guys suggest for an exhaust?. i want it to sound and look nice but be affordable.

    Instead of the whole cold air intake system which is about $300+, I would just get a K&N air filter which is about $35, is will give just about as much power gain as the intake system on your truck. Then I would take the truck to a muffler shop and have a new exhaust system put on. I have found that a 2.5" exhaust with duals out of the cat or 3" single out of the cat, either one with a glass pack (cherry bomb) or a turbo muffler will work very nice with a non-modified truck. If you are looking for other mods past this, just let me know and I can let you know about a lot of them, but these are the cheapest and easiest of them all.
