  1. Springs rates too stiff?

    I’ve been thinking lots recently about my suspension and I’ve come to the conclusion my rear spring rates are too stiff and the dampers too lose. The fronts are slightly too stiff too but no where near as bad. I’m running BMR min drop springs front and BMR sp080 rears on PP dampers which give...
  2. Caroll Shelby signature edition wheels on GT

    I am looking at these forged wheels as they seem like a good price for forged in 9.5” front and 11” rear https://www.shelbystore.com/Carrol-Shelby-Signature-Wheel-p/sa01-20955f37-b.htm All the photos show them on a wide body car 11” square. Has anyone tried them staggered without changing the...
  3. Code: B2486 - Left Side Repeater Lamp Output Circuit Failure

    Has anyone else seen this DTC "Code: B2486 - Left Side Repeater Lamp Output Circuit Failure" The symptoms are the triple blink doesn't work when pressing for left. And.. If you indicate left by pressing the stalk all the way down, then leave it indicating left for 30 seconds+, then cancel by...
  4. Turn signal issue / possible wet weather link

    Hi Thought I would post here before visiting the dealer to see if anyone else may have experienced the same issue. Forewarned is forearmed. I was driving on a particularly wet day and when signalling to turn left the self cancelling did not self cancel. The indicator just kept flashing on the...
  5. Question for tuning experts

    How does the digital vacuum gauge calculate the vacuum? I have a gt350 IM and TB on a GT. My tuner (Shaun at AED) told me I had a vac leak on the remote tune. My digital vac gauge reads 15 in/hg which is low suggesting a leak. However I recently hooked up an analogue vac gauge to the inlet port...
  6. Vacuum with aftermarket filters

    Out of interest what sort of vacuum readings are people seeing with very free flowing aftermarket filters? I know 20 in/hg is normal with a stock filter and I know air density and therefore vacuum varies with temperature. I have a big steeda gt500 filter and gt350 intake manifold / cai combo...
  7. Koni / Bilstein rear shocks

    Hi guys. I have a 2017 performance pack GT and I’ve had BMR min drop springs on it for ages now. I love the stance. Recently I’ve been thinking that the rear end feels too floaty through high speed bends and bouncy over fast undulating roads. I use it as a fast road car, not a track car. I have...
  8. Cam cover oil leak warning

    Hi all. I spotted something recently on another group about the 10mm bolts holding the cam covers on being loose resulting in oil seepage onto the header. Whilst under the bonnet I decided to check my car and discovered the same issue on the passenger side header. The official ford TSB...
  9. Rusting bodywork

    My car is an October 2016 build date, its always garaged, always clean, its done 15,000 miles in dry conditions and it has no spacers and stock wheels so hasn't been stone chipped by wide rubber. I recently noticed some bubbling of the aluminium on the front wing right at the front of the wheel...
  10. Aluminium fender corrosion.

    Mine is an October 2016 build car. 15000 miles, always garaged and seldom used in anything except sunny weather. I don’t have wider wheels or spacers. Today I noticed this bubbling on the front fender which I find rather disappointing as the 3 yr paint warranty has expired. It gives me...
  11. Tax, the future, emissions etc

    Recently I have been debating what to do with my Mustang. Obviously 2020 has been a very strange year with most of us doing far fewer miles in cars. However it has shown us that we don't need to commute anywhere near as much as we used to. I get the feeling that the future of office work will...
  12. Noisy input shaft bearing

    I think my mt82 input shaft bearing is getting a bit noisy. I can hear it in neutral with clutch out. The noise goes when I fully depress the clutch. Is this common on the mt82? And if so how long have I got before it needs a change? The car is a 2017 gt with 13k miles. Surely these things...
  13. First MOT

    Yesterday my mustang passed its first MOT with flying colours. The emissions were spot on, despite the gt350 IM and aftermarket tune which I was a little concerned about. I hear that some cars running aftermarket cats have been failing on emissions recently, which brings me onto my next...
  14. Front brake caliper bolt torque

    Hi Can anyone give me the torque setting for front brembo calipers on a perf pack car? One of my bolts came loose and I am replacing all of them to be sure. Thanks
  15. Anyone running gt350 cai?

    Can anyone running a gt350 do me a favour? Or another open cAi If you data log your car and can record short term fuel trims, then get it hot until the rad fans come on. What happens to your short term fuel trims while the fans are running and the car is static with the air con off? Thanks
  16. Open CAI and fan wash

    I have spotted some strange behaviour in my logs and my tuner says it’s “fan wash”. I’ve done some testing and this seems to pan out. I wasn’t aware of it before so thought I would post my findings and see if anyone else has experienced it. So I put the gt350 IM and CAI on my car and had it...
  17. Gt350 IM on RHD

    Hi folks If anyone is installing or has installed a gt350im on a RHD car please can you post here. I have installed a used one I bought off Gibbo on my 2017 car and have had some very odd issues when using the vacuum routing that Gibbo used and that ford details in the instructions. 1. The...
  18. Intake vacuum

    Hi Just wondering if any folks who are naturally aspirated can post their vacuum number at at warm idle? Would love to hear from my15-my17 owners with stock manifold and with GT350 manifold. I should have checked mine before swapping manifold but I didn’t so I would love to know what’s normal...
  19. Vacuum help needed

    Hi Guys, I was wondering if someone can do me a favour? i have just installed a gt350 intake manifold and throttle body and now my tuner is telling me he believes there is a vacuum leak at idle. I have checked it over best i can with home equipment (listening and looking for the leak and...
