sorry i couldn't help it. It's prolly just tire smoke sucked into the HVAC.

roman we told you before... what you did wrong was that you didn't start in nuetral. Start in nuetral and get the RPM's REALLY high.. like redlining and THEN DROP INTO GEAR.

This will get the tires spinning much faster.. so fast in fact that they wont smoke. Then it wont light the dash on fire --> no smoke in cab!

You just blowed up yer heater core boy !:twak

Did it blow up "REAL GEWD" ?

One of the true achillies heals on the 5.0 litres is the [email protected]#&ing heater cores. Mine will upshift as high as 5000 rpms if you keep her to the rug and when that happens invariably I'll split the heater core.

Ford issued TSBs on them years ago and recommended a restrictor to stop the water pump sending that 4500 rpms worth of water pressure to the core.

The good news is it's only $50.00 new and a half an hour to change. If you don't want to do it every time you're doing burn outs I'd find out more about that restrictor IIWY
