  1. Beefing up a 10R80

    Sooo . . . my trans went kaput after 21K total miles, with about 7K of those boosted. I knew from the beginning of boost this was a possibility. Ordered a new trans from a local Ford Dealer (gave me a discount since I have been a past customer). So I am going to tear down this new Ford...
  2. Louisiana WTB: 2018, 5.0 compatible 10R80 core for rebuild

    If anyone has or knows were a rebuildable 10R10 core/trans is, please PM me. Must the 5.0 compatible. I can find lots of 2.3L Turbo Mustang cores, but no luck yet for a 5.0.
  3. Fixed my 2018 GT's 10R80

    My trans worked perfectly for the past 20K miles (21K total miles, 7K with boost). Began with a 5 - 6 flare at lite throttle (shift solenoid issue), then progressed to occasional hard 3 - 4 downshifts (excessive line pressure). I drove it one day and tried drag mode and would bounce from 3 -...
  4. Can the TCM be tuned independent of the PCM?

    I see there are some companies that offer the ability to tune the trans. Are there proven offerings that allow me to tune my trans independent of of the PCM that really work?
  5. 10R80, Boost & Ford TSB

    After 21K trouble-free miles my 10R80 has begun having issues. Started with a 5 - 6 flare (free rev between gears), then progressed to a violent slam shift on the 3 - 4. Went 14K miles NA, and just over 6K boosted. Problem does not occur all the time, and only acts up at lite, part throttle...
  6. Louisiana WTB 2018 - 2020 stock L & H Hand Exhaust Manifolds

    Looking for some take off L & R hand exhaust manifolds (with Cats attached).
  7. How to determine bad cat on FI

    Developed a slight rattle under the car recently. Put it on a lift and we inspected everything under carriage from the front of the engine to the tail pipes and found nothing loose or touching. We tapped the LH side cat and it was solid. Tapped the RH side cat and it sounded different, like...
  8. WHP Estimate with LTH + FI

    With my present FI set up I am estimating about 640 - 650 whp. With the addition of LTH's and a proper tune revision, what is a realistic gain at the wheels?
  9. 10R80 5 - 6 flare in normal driving

    Just over 20K absolutely trouble free miles on my 2018 GT, nearly 6K with boost. Recently my 10R80 started exhibiting a flare when shifting from 5th to 6th under light throttle in normal driving. I used my Ngauge to delete the KAM (Keep Active Memory) and I re-flashed the tune originally...
  10. Procharger Stage II HO Tensioner (or not)

    Pulled off the interstate today and at the first red light, I noticed quite a bit of unusual noise at idle in the cabin. Got home and checked, everything looks perfect, but right at the head unit/tensioner it sounds like a muffled box of rocks now. I have the P1X with helical gears and I have...
  11. Bolt Torque and Torque to Yield

    Replacing various bolts on my spare Gen3 long block build. I understand Torque to Yield fine, which is easy enough. When the manual says (for instance) 177 inch pounds, then 28 inch pounds, I understand this as taking it to the 177 inch mark in increments, then going an additional 28 inch...
  12. Dragy 60 - 130 Predictor of Horsepower ?

    Wonder if using a Dragy for 60 - 130 could be a relatively accurate method of determining WHP?
  13. Hypothetical Redeye vs Boosted 2018 GT

    I ran the numbers on the 1/4 mile calculator as follows, obviously based on ideal and equal conditions: Hellcat Redeye weight with average size driver = 4,650 lbs Estimated WHP = 700 2018 Mustang GT, A10 with average size driver = 4,000 lbs Estimated WHP with Stage II Pro-C, with mods = 625...
  14. Gen 3 head bolts

    Not to far from bolting the heads onto my forged Gen 3 short block. Just want to confirm the stock head bolts are one time use only.
  15. 255/40/19 - Safe on 10" Wheels?

    According to a tire/rim chart I use, supposedly a 255 tire is the safe minimum width for use on a 10" rim. I just mounted some 255's on my new 10" front rims and I don't like the way it looks. Is it considered safe on a performance car?
  16. Wengerd Performance and Tuning

    I wanted to give some feedback on Darryl Wengerd at Wengerd Performance and Tuning in Paris, Tennessee. My set up: Procharger Stage II with 4.75" pulley ID1050X injectors Thermal R&D Axle back 93 octane I originally had a tune with a different well known tuning outfit and I was thinking the...
  17. Procharger - Having to Adjust

    Finally getting the data logging finalized and was given the OK to do a WOT. My set up is: Stage II with 4.75" pulley ID1050X injectors Thermal R&D axle back PBD remote tune As expected the lower rev band is like stock, i.e. predictable and easy to drive. Once you hit around 4,500 rpm, it...
  18. NGauge Data Logging Education

    Will begin data logging using an Ngauge for a newly installed Procharger Stage II with P1X. The instructions I was sent say: When you are ready to datalog simply go to diagnostics>datalogging> select the config and then normal or race mode. By touching the screen it will start the logger. It...
  19. ProCharger Stage II P1X Up and Running

    Got a Stage II P1x installed and running. I'll post some observations as a first time FI install from my perspective in the next few days. Using PBD for the tuning, they have been great so far and they were able to unlock my Ngauge that was supplied with my Stage II kit. Still have the...
  20. Thermal R&D - Thumbs Up

    Installed the Thermal R&D axle back exhaust system. Fitment was perfect. Quality is excellent. The deep throaty muscle car sound is superb. Idle is relatively quiet, and cruising is not obnoxious or eyebrow raising. The sound it makes with the throttle is intoxicating. I am quite...
