Took my F-150 in last Monday to have new engine and exhaust system put in. The engine is a 5.8L 351 Windsor. The exhaust is dual pipes with a magnaflow muffler system. Enjoy and please feel free to comment or ask questions!

pretty much. i was saying that the only way a dodge could look good is if it had a ford motor in it. i didnt expect a dodge guy to get it though.

Before it had the 351 Windsor in it just as it does now. But the previous owner kept running it low on oil so it had low compression in 5 and 6. Now that I have all eight cylinders I can definetly tell I get better mileage and a heck of a lot more torque to the rear wheels.

I had a guy here in Wichita Kansas do mine and he had it done in about a week and a half. I like the muffler setup alot too. I think the dual pipes really add to the truck.

Truck looks nice and I'm sure it sounds great. I had an old chevy set up the same way. The only problem you'll have with the pipes coming straight out the back is if you leave your truck running while you hookup a trailer you will stink of exhaust and cough for half an hour. I now have mine done out the sides.

Yeah, usually I don't leave the truck idling. Trying to save as much gas as I can with the mileage I get out of it.

I like my body style as well but of course I do since it's MY truck. Although the new 08's do look pretty good I think.

well not a F-750 but still the new cabovers. I like the 2008 trucks but I kinda like the 05-07 the best.
