From the way you describe it I don't think it sounds that bad, but I would let the dealer look at it.

I think they called them "draft tubes", that all changed in the early 1960's. By the late 60's we had smog pumps.

I don't think so but these fuel injected V8's, HEMI, GM's LS and others have allot of places for oil to puddle in the intake manifold. Combine this with 87/89 octane fuel and over 10:1 compression...

You can remove the hose where people are installing those Catch Cans, which is probably a worth while mod. You should be able to find a utube video showing a Catch Can install on e HEMI. See if it...

I wonder if there could be a problem with your PCV system? Excess oil getting into your intake manifold will have the effect of lowering the octane value of your fuel, maybe something for the dealer...

Yea, what are we talking about, 20-25 cents a gallon? A persons driving style can make this much difference up.

Your idea about the elevation could well be contributing to the pinging which is lite detonation/knock. This might sound half arse but try disconnecting the battery for a little while and let the ECU...

Yep, retarded timing can effect idle, throttle response, under hood temps, fuel economy, kinda like working outside in 100+ degree heat with sweats and a heavy jacket.:mad:

87 octane can't cause a rattle at idle, it can under a load. Cylinder pressure at idle is so low the lower octane won't make the engine knock/rattle.

Gasoline octane 87,89,93, has nothing to do with "valve rattling". A noisy valve train can be because the hydraulic lifters may have bleed down, worn valve stems or rocker arms, no oil pressure or a...

Back in the 80's there was a Little Red Express with a 360 running 11.30's at Alamo Drag Way in San Antonio, I'd say that was flat Hauling Ass!

That's what I was thinking also, something doesn't seem right even given that it's the heaviest.

Yes you should, let it build some boost. Did you know those cars run bottom 14's @ 100mph, if your truck stock, your in for a rough time.

Maybe you Oldtimers can pinch a couple of those nice little green leafs off of the door on an unsuspecting F-150 EcoBoost to put next to your HEMI badge? ;)

I use 89, how much per tankful do you really save by using 87? Use what makes you feel best, it has knock sensors so your not going to hurt it. Your original point makes sense, it's just these...

What year, big difference in performance. Early 4.6 2V had 215-225hp. Later 4.6 2V had 260, 4.6 3V 300, 5.0 Coyote 412-435. 4.6 MACH 1's are pretty fast for being ratted at 310hp.
