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...
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 -...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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?
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
Thermal R&D Axle back
I originally had a tune with a different well known tuning outfit and I was thinking the...
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
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...
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...
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...
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...
