  1. Spare Tire Question

    There's cheaper options than just ordering a new kit, you just have to look. I picked up a complete spare, jack, and handle off craigslist for $100. The spare was never used, just pulled out of the trunk when the guy sold his Mustang.
  2. Thinking of painting my wheels, opinions?

    I've had Shelby Razors on my car a little over a year, and I've never been completely satisfied with how the Gunmetal color on the spokes looks against the Magnetic Metallic grey of the car, so I'm thinking it's time for a change. This pic shows the spokes more silver than they look in person...
  3. Pennzoil Platinum 5w-30, $23.97 from Walmart.com + $25 Rebate

    It's a digital gift card, sent to your email. They will send you an email with a credit to purchase the gift card and link to a site where you can select where you want the gift card from. I chose a restaurant gift card and took the Mrs to Olive Garden with it, but there are many gift card...
  4. Help lowering my car

    My understanding is the V6 came with the cheapest, softest shocks/struts that Ford put on an S550. If you put lowering springs on the stock shocks, the higher rate would quickly overwhelm them, wearing them out before their time and leaving you with a bouncy ride. I put over 100k on a V6 before...
  5. SCT BDX showing Tire Size in Inches

    It's been awhile since my basic geometry class (like 40 years), but I don't think you divide by pi (3.14), if you multiply the diameter by pi you get the circumference, or 89.2" in your case. 5280 is 1 mile in feet, so if you divide the circumference inches by 12, then divide that into 5280 you...
  6. Max tire size without changing the stock offset

    Because 275/40r19 tires are much cheaper to buy, aftermarket 19" wheels are generally lighter weight than 20" (yes I know there are exceptions), and I happen to think 19" wheels with a taller sidewall looks better on these cars than 20" with a shorter sidewall.
  7. Cam setup for 5.2 crossplane crank?

    Doesn't Ford racing sell cams specifically for that, ie using GT350 heads on a coyote?
  8. Max tire size without changing the stock offset

    The factory 19" are pretty heavy, it shouldn't be too hard finding an aftermarket wheel of similar or lighter weight, even in 20" sizes. 295/35/20 will fit up front but it will be tight, offset will be critical, too little and it will poke, too much and it will rub on the strut. 32-34 mm offset...
  9. Mild square setup, no poke

    If you're concerned about speedometer error going to a 275/40r19, don't be, the amount of difference that change would cause isn't really that much. It's common for a car to leave the factory with a small amount of error to begin with. My car actually shows 2 mph faster than my GPS reading at...
  10. Max tire size without changing the stock offset

    Stock wheel offsets are not always ideal for filling out the fender with wider tires, sometimes they're not even centered in the fender. If you're going to change the wheels anyway, just get an offset that puts the tire where you want it for the look you're trying to achieve. If your goal is...
  11. Cars Gas Tanks are being Drilled out for Gasoline😡

    Some years back I saw a story on the news about a small Mom and Pop store that kept getting robbed overnight, something like 20 times. The store was next to a vacant shop that criminals could just walk into, climb into the ceiling and crawl a few feet over to the store where they had broke...
  12. Picked up a nail, can’t find tire, need advice…

    That sucks man, went through that not long ago myself, no shop will touch it with the nail on the corner. A lot of people will recommend against this, but I bought a $10 plug kit and simply plugged the hole. It's been working fine for over a month now. I definitely would not do this if the car...
  13. Interested in buying a 50 LE and gotta question.

    That's what I was talking about. One thing that makes it confusing was the original Mustang was introduced several months early for the 1965 model year, and had very long production run because of that early introduction, but all of them were titled as 1965 model year cars. The only...
  14. Interested in buying a 50 LE and gotta question.

    Not exactly, the original Mustang may have been introduced in 1964, but it was a mid-year introduction as far as production schedules go, and they were titled as 1965 model year cars, so model year 2015 is truly the 50th production year of the model name. It always bothered me just a little...
  15. Firestone Firehawk Indy500 tires are much better than I expected

    I don't track my car, but I've had the Indy500's just over a year and I love them. My only complaint is there is a noticeable decline in ride quality below 60*, however that improves after a few miles of driving to warm the tires up.
  16. 2019 Mustang GT wo center guages

    The part you received is not even the correct finish to match a performance pack center dash trim. The trim with the gauges has an engine turned finish (like the Trans Am dash from the 70's), although I think Ford calls it dark aluminum or something like that. You not only need #13 with the...
  17. Anybody seen the LA news today?

    Of course there is. When someone hard wires a backup generator to their house (anywhere other than California), with auto on feature for when the power goes down, there is a required device wired in with the generator where it connects to the main power line at the breaker box. Basically what it...
  18. Will the regular GT ever again have 460 or more HP without electric assist?

    Actually Ford's 3.5L Ecoboost is from the same engine family as the 3.7 V6 that was in the '15-"17. As a 60° V6 it's actually a pretty compact package that uses less space under hood than the coyote. Whoever said it won't fit in a mustang was mistaken , unless they were talking about something...
  19. Will the regular GT ever again have 460 or more HP without electric assist?

    Actually, a 60 degree V6 is inherently smoother and more efficient than an inline 4, all else being equal. An inline 4 has terrible harmonics that try to rip the block apart, which is why you don't see too many large displacement 4 cyl (the more rotational mass there is, i.e. with large bore...
  20. Will the regular GT ever again have 460 or more HP without electric assist?

    Oh Yeah, I remember those cars well, I was totally obsessed with those when I was in high school (they were the hottest new cars you could get at the time, even faster than the Corvette). The plain 6.6 was actually an Olds 403 engine rated at 185 HP. The T/A 6.6 was a real Pontiac engine, 400 ci...
