just wanted the noise from it without having to spend the big $$ on a supercharger as i cant aford that yet lol

ive been in the eaworld for a while and just upgraded to the 5 litre so im not used to serpentine
still dontnunderstand them all besides the fact of 1 not 2 belts

but yea so if the water pump is reverse then its correct that this sorta thig is impossible then?

ive been topold the factory headers are quite restrictive
so would i get a decent increase in torque from putting extractors on
as the power off the loine i got is shocking
i had more torque in the 6 lol

any ways i can get the 8 2 spin easier
