  1. 94 octane in my GT?

    Since it's factory tuned for 87, can I run 94 in my 2017 GT or do I need a tune of some sort? Also, if I do go to 94, what are the benefits? Thanks!
  2. Safety/Reliability of recent superchargers?

    I've been going back and forth about whether or not to supper charge my 17 GT w/PP since I bought the thing. Plan was to throw a VMP in and turn it up to 700-800hp once the powertrain warranty expired AND it was paid off. Both of those will be true as of April 1st. What stops me is my dad's...
  3. Evap leak detected... options with Ford Corporate? *UPDATE- Compressor seal broken*

    UPDATE- see 9/7/21 post. A couple months back my A/C worked great on the way to lunch, then the cold air was just gone on the way back. Checked everything I could check and it was blowing, the line was charged, no odd smells or funky colored (yellow) leaks under the car or hood. So I made an...
  4. How-to vids on totally removing the dash (not just covers) to get at A/C?

    After getting off the phone with Ford, I'd like to be able to pull out the dash enough to access the A/C system. Seems like taking the covers (where the vents are located) is not sufficient. I tried looking on youtube and can't find anything for our generation of Stangs. Does anyone know of...
  5. Air conditioning died suddenly today...help!

    Was driving to lunch, air was ice cold and worked fine. No hint of any issues. On the way back, nothing but hot air no matter how long I let it warm up or how many settings I tried. I usually turn my own wrench but haven't needed to do anything mechanical on this vehicle (2017 GT w/ PP)...
  6. Weathertech vs Husky floor mats?

    I'd like to pick up a set of floor mats for my 17GT. Is there a functional difference between the two brands for this model? Thanks!
  7. Best oil drain valve?

    I'd like to get an oil drain valve (not sure of the correct term) to make oil changes easier and less messy. I haven't looked into it in over a year but I know there were a few options out there. Which is best to go with in regard to quality/durability and ease of use? Thanks!
  8. Odd experience with tailgating yesterday

    Yesterday I was on the highway, wasn't flying but was going maybe 75-80 in a 65. I passed what looked like an early 2000's GTO. Didn't look at the driver, didn't slow down to look at the car...nothing, just noticed it while passing by. Within 10-15 seconds, the guy moves over from his lane...
  9. Painted stripes vs stick on?

    A buddy at work has a Challenger. It originally had matte black sticker stripes. They were damaged and he told me he's going to get painted stripes. The painted stripes seem like they'd do better long term. Then again I'm not sure how paint and a clear coat would do on top of other...
  10. Can my GT do what John Wick's 69 did?

    When John Wick took his 69 to the air field there was some impressive moves shown there. Other than going really fast in a straight line I haven't pushed my car at all. Zero burn outs, I don't take it fast around turns, and no hard braking if I can help it. But I'm curious, with what we see...
  11. JB Weld is loose....remove it or patch over it?

    A few years back I used JB Weld epoxy/putty on my wife's 06 Legacy at the Y joint of her exhaust to patch a leak. It's worked beautifully. However, while driving it today I heard what I thought was a leak in the exhaust. So I looked over everything and the issue is that the patch I did on the...
  12. Steering wheel options with better grip but retaining airbag?

    I like to drive with my hands at 9 and 3. However, I am then left with my index finger wrapping completely around but the other finger tips are just pressing into the back of the button cluster. A while back I saw a company that you send you stock wheel to and they send you one back that...
  13. Rubber tips for jack stands?

    I installed Steeda's jacking rails on my car immediately after driving it home. They've been great! However, they've only ever touched a rubber hockey puck that I set on my jack and then the Ford service center's lift. A few days ago I pulled the trigger on a set of axle backs that will be...
  14. Firestone Firehawk Indy 500's finally broke loose

    I'll start by saying I (still) LOVE these tires!! They are exponentially better than the PZero's my car came with. Today it was around 57 out with a very cloudy sky and while it was not raining, the roads were still damp and even wet in some spots from a little rain overnight. I was driving...
  15. Gas door flap?

    I wasn't sure what to call it but I remember seeing a flap at the mouth of the gas tank that folds out to catch drops of fuel instead of it running out onto the car. I've been using paper towels there but is there something aftermarket that I can install to do the same thing? Thanks
  16. Staying NA but looking to bump up the power

    Around Memorial Day I'm going to be ordering a set of SVE axle backs. I'm not sure if/how it'll give any additional horsepower to my GT. However, I'm open to maybe a cold air intake, tune, throttle body, etc...but from looking at Ford's combo for those parts...it only bumps things up like 20hp...
  17. Are spoilers functional on the S550?

    Are any of the S550 spoilers functional in regard to creating enough down force to assist with maneuvering, speed, etc....or is it mainly about looks? I love the look of my car without a spoiler. Just didn't know if it was worth it for function to have one. Thanks
  18. SVE vs SLP LM2 axle backs

    I've been meaning to upgrade my exhaust. I don't want to spend a ton but I'd like something throaty without drone. I was going to get a LM2 but the SVE is in the same price range and it seems like it'd be similar sounding. Has anyone heard both in person? What are the differences? Thanks
  19. Adding power to get 800hp to the wheels...not possible without a ton of mods?

    Today I was talking to a friend of mine who's been into cars for years. We started talking about my car and I mentioned wanting to add power once my warranty runs out. He said, for my specific model, anything over 600hp is going to require a ton of mods to make it handle the power. I...
  20. Valvomax oil drain plugs?

    I just saw Scotty Kilmer do a vid on these. They seem like a great product that will make oil changes about as mess-free and easy as they can get. A few questions... Has anyone installed one on their S550? Is it as great at it seems? Since Ford is doing my oil changes for another two...
