    Who will swap for the new 7.3 V8!

    The Toronto Maple Leafs? I have to admit you are correct. But remember that Basketball was invented by a Canadian, so it is fitting the title make its way up here eventually... Source: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basketball

    Who will swap for the new 7.3 V8!

    I just posted that video because this is the crowd Ford is playing to. The reality of decision making is more complicated. If the 7.3 makes it into the Raptor that means Ford is killing off the Coyote. They herald the migration of the 7.3 into the F150 with a performance version of the 7.3 and...

    Who will swap for the new 7.3 V8!

    Did a google search and more on the 7.3 in a high zoot version of the Raptor, all within the last few days: https://www.google.ca/amp/fordauthority.com/2019/06/ford-f-150-raptor-will-get-a-v8-exclusive/amp/ https://gearpatrol.com/2019/06/10/ford-f150-raptor-could-get-gt500-mustang-v8-power/...

    Who will swap for the new 7.3 V8!

    Ok here we go... The 7.3 F150 pairing was talked about in February but quietly. But even in June (June 9) the 7.3 is still in there along with the Shelby for the Raptor. https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.hotcars.com/report-new-ford-raptor-v8-enigne/amp/ Personally the Shelby engine in that...

    Who will swap for the new 7.3 V8!

    Alright! Now here is one for you (won’t see anything like this in North America... :cwl:): For a second I thought you were endorsing the 7.3 swap, but whatever. There may be a “hot” version of the 7.3 for the Raptor. A Raptor with the Godzilla engine. And the Raptors won the NBA...

    And while we are here: Toronto Raptors are the NBA Champions!

    Who will swap for the new 7.3 V8!

    The coke bottle overflow is the best. Still no word on the 7.3. One thing I kept secret was the speculation of its use in the F150 as that would spell the demise of the Coyote. This was last February. Things have progressed. That could be why no hard data yet. There was even...

    Might Sell PP2 - Looking For Advice

    I’m going to sound like a broken record but here goes. Yes 70 percent or a third off seems right. Next: when you bought the car you should have had some cash for “unforeseen expenses”. If this is an on-going thing then you bought too much car for your income. Guys who worry about...

    I like the coke bottle overflow for the rad. Brown fluid so not a good sign...

    Doesn't feel like 460hp...?

    Break it in driving in rush hour traffic. That’ll do just fine.

    So, I'm an idiot and crashed my '18 GT. Sell/Fix/jump out the window?

    “Why am I talking about this on this forum, well we are all proud Mustang owner/drivers and stuff does happen, so be ready for denial when you thought you were covered.” I would not say anymore on the internet. But none of this is news to me. The insurance companies treat everyone like crap...

    So, I'm an idiot and crashed my '18 GT. Sell/Fix/jump out the window?

    I drive that very car. Bought from a lot earmarked for a large rental company. I negotiated with the fleet manager to take advantage of the CCA class 10 tax situation (for which they were built and priced). These cars are built better simply by slowing down the line a little so panels fit...

    So, I'm an idiot and crashed my '18 GT. Sell/Fix/jump out the window?

    You didn’t forget anything. You were conned... How does a rider for uninsured or low policy drivers become reality in his day and age? Where I live that’s now illegal and everyone has to have millions of coverage. The reason it’s an optional rider where you live is to screw you out of money...

    Got a visit from a LEO today about my Mustang

    I get it but when you question a cop that gives you a ticket he will say even if the equipment is wrong you have sped a zillion times in the past and he would be right. So he isn’t losing any sleep over it. I get more respect from the cops for challenging the law and not their enforcement of it!

    Got a visit from a LEO today about my Mustang

    Look, this is a performance car forum not mothers against drunk driving. Never exceed the speed limit and never rolled through a stop sign? Yah right guys! In my second 5.0 I racked up 24 tickets in two years (over 30 years ago) but only four minor convictions in the end cause I fight them...

    Got a visit from a LEO today about my Mustang

    Between you and me you could have avoided all of this by not chasing the cop down to tell him what he did wrong. To me that is just asking for trouble.

    Got a visit from a LEO today about my Mustang

    Nobody is fired up. The cops are just ordinary people like you or I. Take that guy Mike B I talked about two days ago. The late night show celebrity preaching “no means no” and respect woman, etc. Ends up threatening and stalking a former girlfriend. Then he breached bail and all kinds of...

    Got a visit from a LEO today about my Mustang

    Nobody is saying don’t wear armour or have an M4 handy if the boys pack real heat. Just the appearance. In England they wear yellow vests from what I’ve seen. And again after the troubles with the Irish and all that they seem keen to erase that idea of the military on city streets. We had that...

    Got a visit from a LEO today about my Mustang

    I think what he means is that the police should not look like the military. (Same gear but dressed in black). A free and democratic society does not need an army to keep the peace. This was more of a big deal years ago when people actually fled such countries. Now they are pushing the limits...

    Put the full roll cage in. I’m not crazy about bent and straightening cars and driving as is. The shell has to be weaker. The roll cage makes that safety issue redundant. Apart from that I agree with the guy above. You have 25 other cars to DD. This one is for racing and trust me you will...
