I went into airfloat one day and they guy asked me if i wanted to see something cool. Sure ! He walks over to the loading dock to this gigantic crate with ford stamped on the side. He opens it up and there was a concept model of the next years mustang inside. They were building parts for the manufacture of it. Pretty sweet

Yeah, but it's basically the same. The difference is only important in ordering same as body color type parts. Idk if there are any of the other color around here...

Wow. You guys are into a little bit of everything. Way to keep your eggs in separate baskets.

Nice. It's really amazing what some small companies do that the general public isn't aware of until after the fact.

It truly is. Each one of our businesses has one paid employee and I would say the laser engraving place turns out 50 rubber stamps and 100 signs a day and delivers them. Our travel business does 80 trips a year and all the planing with mom myself and one paid employee.
But airfloat is used by most major companies and are all made here in Decatur , il. Not a big town. We also call home to the cat 777 mining truck.

Will take you a while to recoup the cost. Yes, it gets better mileage, but the cost of diesel is expensive to 87 octane.

I don't like the idea, personally. Smells like crap, sounds like crap. Diesel is more expensive than 87 octane, here at least. A V8 conversion makes much more sense to me.

Well my buddy who own cedar city diesel just rebuilt a 4bt with the best components and told me he'd sell and install it for 4500
Thus counts the needed gauges

There's a member here who's done that exact conversion. He has a few videos on YouTube. In my opinion, I'd spend that 4500 on a V8, it would be cheaper, probably. Just my opinion though.

I can't tell you pros or cons. I don't know about this stuff. Can you afford it?

Figure about 3 years to recoup your fuel costs. Seat of the pants is something else entirely.

If you're missing power, but don't wanna spend too much money, just get a 4.0. I've driven 2.5's and 4.0's, and believe me, there's no comparison. Unless you're just wanting a diesel.
