I just test drove a local for sale 1994 f250 4x4 460 efi.
it has an exhaust leak on the passenger side at back. Power seems lacking for a 460. The owner is willing to let me have a shop look at it before we settle. Other than compression check, and clogged converter. What am I looking for?
can exhaust leak cause the power loss?

Possible depending on how close it is to the oxygen sensor it can mess with the mixture reading. Problem is with those 460's is that the break exhaust bolts, then they harden from the heat and can be extremely difficult/expensive to have removed. Have seen instances where the head had to be removed to get the bolt out, and the cats for those are a little pricey as well
