  1. Another leaking pinion seal

    I happen to notice yesterday while under the car adjust the e-brake that I have a leaking pinion seal. Bummer. My 2017 has 57,000 miles. Limited slip 3.31 third-member. Manual 6 speed flange. So I have to mark everything, pull the drive shaft. Remove the pinion nut while holding the flange...
  2. GT350R brake upgrade kit and rear wheel offset

    Ok kids - I did it. My wallet is practically empty but I got the kit in hand, and as soon as the weather improves this spring I'm going to get this going. One big question that I'm looking at is rear wheel offset needed when this is done. I'm currently sporting a project 6GR 19x11 rim in the...
  3. Time for a Tune-up

    I'm finally past 50K miles. Engine is still stock from the factory - naturally aspirated with no changes to cold air intake, tune or anything. The only thing I changed was adding catch cans on both sides. I'm going to replace the plugs, belts, idler, tensioner, fuel filter, air filter, and...
  4. maximum motorsports camber & caster plates

    Who has these? Thoughts? Pros vs. cons? They boast caster adjustment too - recommended by the very trusted mustang/corvette shop in my neighborhood.
  5. steeda sway bar end link length adjustment issue

    I have the steeda front sway bar installed along with the pro action adjustable shocks/struts and progressive lowering springs. I'm also putting in adjustable front/rear end links. My problem is the factory front end links are approx. 8 3/4" long. By pre-adjusting the front adjustable end...
  6. School me on bumpsteer

    First, it's a 2017 GT and it's a non-PP car from the factory (which has caused its own challenges). Second, in my quest to get this car to handle better in corners I've gotten to this suspension upgrade plan (all Steeda): * Progressive springs front and rear * Adjustable pro action shocks and...
  7. suspension upgrade vs. tire rub

    My car is a 2017 GT Premium - non-PP. So far I've spent a lot of time eliminating wheel hop, stiffening the front of the car, IRS bushings, IRS braces, vertical links, subframe alignment, etc. Suspension upgrade feels like the next step for better handling. My concern is that I'm running...
  8. Full length jacking rails + IRS braces

    I'm replacing the original jacking rails with the full length ones, but I'm also wanting to install the IRS braces at the same time. Do I install the jacking rails first or the IRS braces? Can I install the IRS braces with the rear wheels on speed ramps rather than lifting the car, or do I...
  9. Powder coating aluminum coil covers

    I'm looking to color match my aluminum "powered by Ford Performance" coil covers on the 'ole 5 liter with the color code of the car, then have the lettering done in gloss black. Right now they're powder coated a blue color from ford performance and the lettering is clear polished aluminum. I...
  10. Road trip: Seattle to Vegas

    My wife and I are planning on driving to Las Vegas from Seattle the week of the 18th of Feb (Presidents Day), staying 3 nights then driving back. I know. It's winter. My plan involves driving south to Bakersfield, CA, to avoid the passes up here, then head east. The question is - how much...

  12. Steering unit wiring harness and old oil

    I completed the first oil change on this car yesterday in about an hour and a half or so. I took my time on everything so I didn't mess anything up of course. Generally it went really well with one minor exception. Usually I loosen the filter and let the oil drain out around it into a pan...

  17. Something came from UPS today

    Need4SpeedMotorsports helped me get on the right track in April. What started as firestone fire hawk indy 500’s on cheaper wheels with spacers, lots of stretch and plenty of poke turned into Project6GR 5’s in gloss black on Michelin 4s pilot sports. 285/35R19’s on 19x10’s in front 325/30R19’s...
  18. Custom manual shift knob with no reverse lockout adapter

    I currently run a custom knob from CJ Pony Parts that requires the reverse lockout adapter to screw onto the stud over the plastic reverse lockout before the knob goes on. In other words the knob is not hollowed out where the stud goes similar to the factory knob to allow the reverse lockout to...
  19. Checking the oil with a strut tower brace

    My car didn't come from the factory with a strut tower brace. So I installed one along with the necessary additional members to stiffen the front. Anyway, now it's a giant pain to check the oil. I have to wiggle the dipstick out between the V-shaped gap between the strut tower brace and the...
  20. Rear valance loose?

    So I was doing some afternoon detailing and notice the rear valance was loose in the center around the backup light. Strange - don’t remember it being that flimsy, so I crawled underneath and the center was completely loose. There’s a dark gray plastic brace with two white rectangular fasteners...
