I am looking into buying a 99 offroad package f150 xlt ext cab 4x4. 4.6/auto. Wondering what kind of mileage these get? it has a K&N filter kit on it and flowmaster exaust also. Anybody have the performance specs on the 4.6 and 5.4?

Re: A few questions.

I did manage to find out the performance specs on a 99 4.6 truck. 220hp 275ft lbs tourque. but as for mpg I am still wondering. I've heard people with same setup getting 18/20 out of a 5.4

Re: A few questions.

Ok after driving a few trucks i have tossed out the idea of a 4.6 for sure. They have zero balls my 300 powered f150 with 256k miles on it will smoke a 4.6 thats sad. I'd hate to know how they perform with a trailer behind them... Deffinately going to look for a 5.4.. I can't tell any diffrence between the 4.2 v6 and 4.6 v8 except they 4.6 sounds like a v8... I'd buy a chevy before i buy a 4.6.. Sorry but i was totaly dissapointed in the engine. 5.4's feel like they have twise as much power.. Ok enough 4.6 bashing i am going to piss somone off.

Re: A few questions.

i just bought that same truck with the 5.4L...99 F150 ext cab short bed XLT offroad package with the towing package.
