Seems the best review, as he is pushing it and does not give a damn about the branding and just reviewing the car for what it is.
Things to take from that, mag ride is an absolute must, seems without it the cars still suffer the rear end bounce.
Also had the S2000, that is a car that has a raw factor even in complete road trim as not much happens until 6000rpm and then they scream all the way to 9000rpm.
There is different kinds of fun, sometimes fun is via big power and big noise, something the Mustang delivers on but corner to...
Check Autobrite, they have some lovely offers on the DA polishing range and their car cleaning products are pretty awesome too.
If your gonna machine polish once you've removed the swirling I am yet to find a better sealant/wax than there:
Supersonic Hydrophobic sealant
Waterless washes 100% do not work, yes they work if your not OCD like most of us here, for your regular guy with his Fiat Punto who does not care about his paint finish, the product is fine.
For all of us who do care about our cars, go to the effort of getting professional details and machines...
Must be something wrong with that, my 911 had lovely clutch and gear box, was a lot better than the one in Mustang.
But nothing manual wise ever rivalled my S2000, that was a true rifle bolt with zero notchiness but felt super tight and precise. Impressive considering you were rowing the...
The manual in the Mustang is a mix, its great but also shite at the same time. :(
On mine I did and tried the following:
1. BG Syncro oil in both gearbox and diff, it did help shifts and made it a touch quieter.
2. Steeda transmission bracket, this really made getting 2-3 easier...
No no I am fully aware of the 888R's and albeit though they are an improvement over the outgoing 888's they are certainly not a road tyre.
The only car I might consider them for on the road would be something like a Caterham / Westfield, but certainly not on a big heavy daily driven car.
They are not a road tyre, anyone fitted those for a road car is to put it bluntly stupid, unless the car is an absolute hot summers weekend and track toy only.
R888R is bloody incredible on the track, like shit to a blanket, but damn are they a noisy tyre, when I fitted them to my EVO for...
Avoid Toyo T1R's and pretty much any Toyo on the Mustang, there performance cannot even rival the Pzero let alone a Michelin and they generally cope poorly with heavier cars and the Mustang with tank of fuel and driver is not far off 2 tonne.
AD08R from Yokohama is a fantastic tyre, really...
I am sure a few here will find this interesting:
M2 vs GT350 (Both on Michelin PSS):
MY18 A10 Mag VS Stinger:
So all four cars, same track, same driver, dry, Michelin tyres, though the MY18 is running the same GT 350 wheels, but is wrapped in PS4S instead of PSS...
Tune is absolute best bang for buck, I recommend Palm Beach for an NA tune, cost of an SCT X4 (check ebay) you want a Ford 7015 un-married US one. Then the tune is $200 unless PB changed prices.
Once dialled in expect 30-40HP gain and you can have them adjust throttle maps and drive by wire...
You need to forget about CAI's, they really do fuck all on the 5.0, maybe a few ponies on a dyno with the hood up.
On the road, stop start and the true cold air and RAM AIR effect of the stock air box, you will find the stock air box yields as good if not better performance than any CAI, so...
Arguments aside for different dyno's etc. as not interested in getting involved in all that BS using the same dyno and same quarter mile terminals I had following results:
Dyno: Maha LPS3000
Drag: Pod or Shakey using walk of line method, no LC.
Stock: 410-415HP / 106-107mph...
Was a good day.
Good time for the EB for sure, though the stock V8 was still faster, but a hairs whisker in it.
Video of me VS Mac, apologies about quality as was sent to me via whatsapp which has clearly dialled the quality back to 1990. :D
Did you try process of elimination yet?
As you seem to be struggling to find this I would:
1. Refit stock rear dampers.
2. Remove front anti roll bar and drop links
3. Remove rear anti roll bar and drop links.
If it still clunks, you'd ruled out a lot by doing the above and as it seems 100% in...
