    CFI performance

    I am sure this has been beaten to death, but has anyone had any success doing upgrades to CFI? IE... Cam, heads, exhaust? Any favorable results?

        Thats about as far as we've got on the cfi performance. I don't really think you can make it a screamer. Now throw on some NOS and she might wake up a little ; )

                      No cats, headers, glasspacks...

                      True duals, but I strongly reccomend an H-pipe...

                        I put ported e7 heads on my linc, before it went carbed, with no ill effects. I'd imagine you could use 1.7 rr's for a little more boost.

                              CFI can be built up to very high performance levels, and there are parts out there, but most of the stock Ford system would have to be thrown away so it's pretty pointless.
