^they go for 20,000 dollars. I've been looking for a manual trans 2000 7.3 powerstroke for like two years now. The market prices are just too high to justify.

Forgot you are from Utah. It's like brodozer capital out there. You can get decent ones out here for 10k if you look hard.

I'll own one eventually. Will probably be under my '72 body.

holy poop.


2000 F250 7.3 6 Speed 4X4


I might fly out and pick this up. its exactly what I want, minus the dent in the body. Even if I don't keep it, I could EASILY sell that for 15,000 here.

The dude says someone put a deposit down on the truck. He is considering it sold. :(((((

I was like "I am prepared to pay higher than asking price" no response yet.

To be honest I'd buy that truck blind at 10k, even if the title wasn't clear. That is a hell of a deal.

I've been looking every so often, locally, about once a week for a 2000 F250 manual 7.3 (4x4 is preferred, but not essential) that exact truck, not even stock SELLS for 20k. Like I've contacted sellers after they sold their truck, and asked what it sold for. Anything less than 20 grand has a lot of miles.

99mx5 lives in Las Cruces. Maybe he could go look at it for you, if the current deal falls through.

Some guy bought the truck for 500 dollars UNDER asking price. I was blowing up the sellers phone the day before he sold it offering 10 grand. What a moron, he deserves to be in debt.


Anyways....
Working with V8 Roadster for a full brake kit.

Modified Master cylinder brace (they are adding more bracing for me)
Dynapro Radial mount front calipers
2 piece AP racing curved vane smooth face front rotors
Tandem 1" master cylinder, looks like remote mount, not sure yet
2 piece Coleman rear rotors
PFC pads (one set for street, one for race)
Got the amsoil 600 series brake fluid, should be enough.

no ducting, i'm gunna see how the rotors and fluid do first. These brakes are good for a 500whp miata, so they are pretty overkill.


Also found my flash cards for the corner flags, gotta brush up, it's been like 4 years since I've been on track.

Haha, basically.

Here are the flash cards...



and I have looked through everything I own, and I cant find anything on the impreza other than this...




This is a dyno plot after a tuned length intake was added, still conservative tune. I'm running the built engine, E85, but not the modified big runner intake (makes an enormous difference on all subarus) or the cams or the aggressive tune.

I guess I'm kinda curious why wouldn't you run ducts?
Or you do plan to, just later after you test without?
It's no scientific discovery that they help tremendously

I just figured the brake setup should dissipate heat way better than the stock setup, and not a lot of people run the setup without ducts, so I'm curious.

Yeah, with the PFC race pads, if I experience fade, I'll just bolt on the (i forget the company) ducted backing plates everyone runs.

My hunch (and of course not really based on any concrete knowledge) is that my car won't have enough power to overheat the brakes.

You're probably right, that's a massive setup, just figured why not go all the way

Found these... I could rivet them to the oem under engine plastic panel, maybe.

Hehe, I just think I need to focus on keeping it simple, then making small changes here and there.

Sometimes, you gotta go 3/4 in, to respect her pain levels... i mean, the thread title is "Italian Stallion" for gods sake.

Brake ducts will extend pad and rotor life

It just seems like a hassle. I'm keeping my foglights, where do I put the ducts? Would the bottom or sides of the oem undertray draw any air?
