    Painting Exhaust

    you might try engine paint. It will take any heat that may be present, and it's pretty durable paint.
  2. close, but it's velocity to the 3rd power. The math can get pretty complicated, because you start running into other issues at higher speed with turbulent flow, changes in vehicle height, etc. Years ago, I caught all kinds of heck in a dodge charger forum, because I said a dodge charger would need approximately 700 hp to get to 200 mph. I nailed it, hellcat at 707 hp will get to 201 mph.

    Moving order to new dealer?

    I don't believe retail order bank is closed.

    TSB - 3/2/1 Downshift

    It's a simple reprogramming TSB Number - SSM 50640
  5. Speed has a huge impact, especially when towing. The aerodynamics of a trailer, is slightly better than a brick. Weight has a minimal effect on mpg. Driving at 70 with a 25 mph headwind, is the equivalent to driving at nearly 95 mpg. It would be slightly less, because the drive train drag is still at 70 mph.

    TSB - 3/2/1 Downshift

    I hadn't experienced, but was talking to a 2021 owner, and he jinxed me. It's not very repeatable, but seems to be keyed to engine brake on, and according to TSB when tow/haul is activated. I've experienced it twice, once with trailer, once without. Literally rolling up to a traffic light with every light pressure on brake pedal. It's a pretty sharp "jerk" that makes you think, what did I just hit! I'm going to have them fix it when I take the truck in for the two recalls that are activated.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    You may remember, it was a retail order, they changed my retail order to stock. On a quiet year, achieving ok to buy should have been NON EVENT

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    I've wondered if this was the reason the dealer shifted my order from retail to stock, hoping to steal my early order for someone the GM knows. Their stated excuse was that Ford was filling stock orders first.
  9. Take a soft cloth and this works very well if there's a little bit of moisture fog on the inside. I found microfiber cloths don't work as well something like a clean cotton rag, diapers are especially good for this task.

    Ordered 2022 F250 Bumped to 2023 F250

    Did you ever receive an email for your order? Ask the dealer to provide you cancelled order number. I'm betting you're going to hear crickets, and it's time to find a better dealer.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    Does the mileage make sense? Is the dealer 73 miles from the depot? While I would be pissed too, in the grand scheme of things, it won't make a difference two months from now.

    No CD player with 2022 Super Duty :(

    My wife would disagree with that statement with her M/T Challenger If you don't treat her right, she will resist, buck, and even stall.

    No CD player with 2022 Super Duty :(

    I have a small hard drive connected to USB. Ripping CD's to a file is pretty easy. Go for higher quality over saving space.

    2022 F350 Trailer Wiring Fault

    I found the 7 pin being very stiff and dielectric grease helped it fully engage.
  15. No AS, and it track perfectly. Nothing during acceleration, nothing during deceleration. Being on one side of the crown or the other, if it's large enough, it will slightly wander, but no different than any other vehicle I've owned.
