    Question Increase speed

    What can I do to increase speed with the terminator block? Also I’m thinking about putting blue ford racing valve covers on for looks any other suggestions on that? I’m in a Red 04 Marauder

    I think the blue is ugly and doesn't match anything, factory look is the best I'd say.

    Take yours off and powder coat. Not all 4v cam covers work on Marauder

    The Red ones are slow so it will be difficult to gain much speed.

    It got started in Louisville years ago .... maybe 2008 or 2009 when they put a Reserved DTR Parking sign on the Dumpster. The joke stuck and grew from there.
