well my friend has a 98 single cab f150 with a 4.2 5 speed. He only has exaust and its quick for being a v6 fullsize. Everytime i race him he gets up to about 60 then i come around him. You should win but for a v6 fullsize they get down.

98 4.3 5speed K&N, Taylor wires, MSD coil, flowmaster, march pullies, custom y

I dont think you will have any problems with that. But then again i dont have a 4x4. I have a 94 that must be one of a kind b/c I've out run 5.0 mustangs, dodge rams, and silverados.

You've actually got some nice mods. No AC, power steering, flowmaster 40, no spare and your 4x4 problem. You should definitely beat that f-150. You're much much lighter and have a comparable if not better engine.

dump all the weight you can. run the front tires overinflated, crank your t-bars all the way up, hell, even run some doughnut spares on the front if you are not hooking up the front end. move the battery to the back of the truck, drain out the washer fluid, dump the smog crap, take out some seats, i don't know what else for cheap unless you start ripping out carpet and door panels and stuff.

This is my every day vehicle.Removing the seats are not an option for me I will try airing the front tires up. I guess i will just race him and see what happens. Thanks anyways
