Ok Folks I have been researching everywhere trying to find an assembly manual for a 73 Nova, obviously no luck, they seem to stop at 72. So my question here is, How similar is the 72 to the 73? I know a lot of the parts are interchangeable, I am curious if the exploded views and such are close enough that its worth spending the cash to use it as a reference.

I know the advantages of hi performance air filters in high HP engines. My question is what are the advantages of a daily driver that 98% of the time never gets over 2500 rpm. My daily driver is a '97 Mazda B2300 SE 5spd manual trans. I drive 88 miles to and from work on 2 lane county rds. with speed limits of 40-45 mph. Would I see a return on investment in improved gas mileage over a stock filter? Basically what are the flow characteristics of a stock compared to a Hi Performance filter in…Continue

Looking through my bookshelf the other day I found the fall 2007 issue of Ford Performance Trucks.
Inside I found a story call swap salvage yard, and it was about replacement of the stock 2000 F150 Harley Davidson truck engine with one out of a Lightning. I am a previous owner of a 2000 Lightning and a current owner of a 2003. The story was by Kevin Tetz and Ryan Shand of of "Trucks".
Needless to say I'm interested in modifying a 2000 HD truck. Is the truck in the story still…Continue

I love Extreme 4x4; I really do. I can get some of my 4x4 fix.
However I have a few Concerns.
First not everyone has mega deep pockets, and even your buggy build in the 2 car garage was outta control. What i mean buy that, is not everyone has a 2 car garage (and most certainly) not a $1000 welder and $10k in hand tools or a $20k+ budget for a build.
secondly, I am getting tired of seeing the same old crap. You build Jeeps, congratulations, there…Continue
