I know you can line up a new gasket on it and grind the ports to match the holes on the gasket anywhere it overlaps. This generally gives better air flow causing a boost in power.

Better gas milage

Want to get a little better performance and increase your gas milage. Remove your mass airflow sensor. Using a pair of needle noise pliers, pull the screen out to increase air flow along with using a high flow air filter or cold air intake system..K&N, Spectra, Varaum, etc. Install a high flow exhaust & Purchase a programmer if you can.

What sparkplugs is the best for a 2005 Denali Yukon xl with a 6.0 motor? Also what could I do to get the maxium gas milage and add horse power? This is a non-diesel engin. Also I notice that the gas filter...

You use the spark plugs recommended in your owners manual

Any brand but same OEM electrode configuration

You can not add horse power to any vehicle without
modifications,common sense.

Change front O2 Sensors at 100,00 miles
Clean MAF Sensor

Forget the fuel filter if in the tank

Converting ford 460 to 7.3 diesel

wow have you got your work cut out for you
a diesel needs so much more (stuff) than a gas engine
but you'll get better milege with the diesel espesicialy if towing

things right off the top of my head that are different
Power brake booster and master cyl unit
fuel system (yes the entire thing)
EEC for the truck
Electricial system (your gonna need two battery's to fire off the glowplugs)
transmission (torque converter and final drive gearing )
dash gauges (gas tach won't work on a diesel)
tail pipe (4 inch or bigger)

all this stuff is different on a diesel truck

ohh allmost forgot one thing
Front springs Diesels are twice as heavy as it's gas counterpart

hope you got a doaner truck for all this stuff

Better engine performance and gas mileage

try either a cold air intake or a chevron....a chevron is a cylinder with slots cut like arrow heads which will remove air turbulence....that alone will increase your performance at least 25% and horse power about another 40 to 50.

2000 ford explorer the overdrive light came on, what does that mean?

Is this the light on the dash notifing you that you hit the button to turn the O.D. off that you're talking about? I have a 98 and my button is located in the end of the shift lever. I have hit it several times accidently and noticed the light in the dash coming on. All you have to do is push the button back in and your vehicle will once again be in O.D. which is where you want to be except when you are off roading it. Overdrive cuts your engine revolutions by 1/3 thus giving you better gas milage on the highway.
I hope this helps you and please don't forget to rate my advice.

Need to know whats the best fuel octane for 88 ford ranger with 2.9 liter v-6 fuel injected engine

You can use any brand starting from regular (87) to super or premium (93) depending on your budget. Lower octane gives you usually lower gas milage and can cause problems with engine starting in winter. So for winter time and better gas milage use medium grade.
Good Luck
