  1. Connecting Rods for a 1500WHP Engine?

    Thanks for the recommendations. I'll take a look at Callies and Boostline rods.
  2. Connecting Rods for a 1500WHP Engine?

    For those of you that have built reliable (or at least as reliable as can be expected) high horsepower motors what rods would you recommend for use with a cross plane crank? I'm currently looking at the Manley H-Tuff rods. Would prefer to steer clear of I beam rods and don't really want to...
  3. If you ain't first, you're last; 7 second S550 build

    I would appreciate that, would like to talk to him. Thank you.
  4. If you ain't first, you're last; 7 second S550 build

    Haltech stopped offering the Coyote terminated harness a while ago due to a lack of demand. If you ask around you might be able to find a dealer that has one sitting on a shelf collecting dust. Does your buddy have experience tuning Ford Ti-VCT engines with the Haltech Elite? Reason I ask is...
  5. If you ain't first, you're last; 7 second S550 build

    Nice build. Do you have a tuner selected for the Haltech or will you be tuning it yourself? I'm sure you already know this but the Elite 2500 is now able to run on the NSP software.
  6. Florida Brett Barber Ported 18 manifold with extras

    Bret's company, Airflow Solutions, ported the lower on my Whipple setup. The work is top shelf. If I was looking for an NA intake I'd be PMing you right now. Somebody is going to get a good deal on a great intake.
  7. California 2016 Mustang GT PP Manual…….Highly Modified

    This is a sad day. Since you said not to ask for parts...how much for the diffuser? :like: Seriously though, for the price somebody is going to get one hell of a car that is solidly put together. The seller has some serious OCD. If I was in the market for a turnkey modified S550 this would...
  8. FI Tuning Question

    If I were working on this car here's the process I'd follow: First, I would pressure test the engine to make sure there are no vacuum leaks. Next, check the throttle function. Confirm the throttle is working properly but removing the intake tube and have a friend sit in the car and sweep the...
  9. Falling on its face

    Stumbling and hesitation could be a number of things and in my experience fuel is usually the culprit but there's no way to know for sure until the condition is datalogged. If you don't want to throw parts at it then a datalog is the next step.
  10. Anybody here using a Haltech Elite?

    I'm working on a twin turbo predator swap into a fox body and want to know if anybody here is using a Haltech Elite. I bought the Elite 2500, wideband, and I/O expander for another project that isn't going to happen so I decided to repurpose the haltech hardware. I called a few places about...
  11. Question On Steeda Diff Bushing Inserts

    To anybody installing these diff inserts I would strongly recommend installing the BMR sleeve and bolt kit while you're there. Aside from the sloppy factory diff bushing the factory fastener is undersized when compared to the bushing sleeve creating a hot dog in a hallway situation thus adding...
  12. Ford Performance Half Shaft Differences?

    The boxes mine shipped in had the same oily/greasy residue. I presumed it was just some kind of oily coating to keep the exposed metal from rusting while sitting on the shelf in some FRPP warehouse. As long as there isn't any grease leaking from the CV boots you should be fine. Aside from the...
  13. Ford Performance Half Shaft Differences?

    OP...just a word of advice; call G-Force and give them the manufacture date and ask them if they had changed their thread locker before or after that date of manufature. If they were using the old formulation keep an eye on the bolts because it won't be long before they back out. Ask me how I...
  14. The Big Fat Track Car Cooling Thread

    When I spoke to them they only had version for RHD, do they have a LHD version now? Who did you talk to over there? I talked to them last January and they said they were having too much trouble with an LHD kit and were probably going to abandon the project. @db232, did you ever hear from the...
  15. HALP! Strut Tower Brace No Go!

    I notched the brace slightly to accommodate the height of the blower.
  16. HALP! Strut Tower Brace No Go!

    I have experience with these types of mounts. I have the nearly every part that steeda sells installed in the car. Dropping the engine, especially on urethane mounts, is not something I would recommend on primarily street driven cars. Everybody is different and there are folks who don't mind...
  17. HALP! Strut Tower Brace No Go!

    Those Steeda motor mounts are going to add NVH into the car. What is acceptable is a matter of preference. If you want to run the strut bar slightly trimming the edges will give you sufficient clearance. If you're not comfortable using a grinding disc, any competent shop should be able to...
  18. Dealer screwed up

    That manager needs to be trained or moved to a new position. I recommend sending a note to the GM of the dealership and asking for a remedy. There is clear negligence on the part of the dealership technician. If you don't get anywhere hammer them on the survey. The survey is a very big deal...
  19. Which aftermarket radiator?

    Another update: I took the car for a drive on a road that I drive decently hard from time to time. The last time I drove the car hard on that road the CHT got as high as 230 before I decided to back off. Yesterday, I drove the car as hard, if not harder, and the CHT got to 203 once but stayed...
