  1. Steering pull. Tracking or something else?

    Hey I've had the car out a few times when the weather has allowed, and I've noticed the steering wheel has started to pull on its own (not violently) but enough to take notice when holding it in both hands. It makes driving a bit tiresome constantly having to make micro adjustments. I don't...
  2. Washer Jet Leaking

    Hello :) Does anyone know how the washer jet is removed please? I don't want to just pull at it in case I snap something. I think I have somehow sprung a leak! Is this a common thing to happen? I'm hoping the tube has just come off the end of the jet. There is no fluid reaching the...
  3. I don't understand wheel width (9J/9.5J/10J)

    Hey I'm sorry for being so dumb and asking this but I'm still on the hunt from some different 19" wheels for my car. My plan - I want to fit winter tyres to the current stock wheels. I then would like a new set of alloy wheels that would take a wider tyre up front and rear (not by much but...
  4. Spare set of alloys that don't cost the earth?

    Do they exist! 🤔 I'm eyeing up some nice winter tyres to use in the cold, ice, wet, slushy, conditions that have started to arrive (up North at least). The tread compound on these Potenza Sports can't handle the cold temps and are stiffening up. I finally settled on the Hankook icept evo 3's...
  5. Can you run 55 profile tyre?

    Hey all Just looking at all season tyre choices for standard UK fitment - 255/40/19 and 275/40/19. The choice is pretty dire. Having a fiddle around the sizing filters online, it would appear that a 55 profile in those sizes is the sweet spot. My GT isn't lowered and doesn't have any...
  6. Widest tyre on standard alloys?

    Hey I seem to recall that you can "plus 10" on tyre width in the back of my mind. At the moment I have 255/40/19R up front and 275/40/19R on the rear. Standard custom pack 3 forged 19" alloys. Would I be right in thinking the widest I can go is therefore 265/40 front and 285/40 on the rear...
  7. NGK 6510 Gap Confusion

    I know this has been covered a lot, I can see by the many search results I got back, but I'm so confused. 😆 I was trying to find out the gap for the NGK 6510 plugs to use with my Vortech supercharger which is coming next week (thank you @beefcake!!!). Some posts mention 0.30" - 0.35" (this...
  8. After a drain plug but I'm a bit confused.

    Hi all I'm coming up to another oil change on the '18 GT and I'd like to move away from the fragile yellow OEM plastic Ford plug. I did some reading on this forum about the Femco product(s). From what I gathered, the M12x1.75 brass drainers will do the trick. With the horizontal fitment into...
  9. Wonky Exhaust.

    Hey, Not sure if this is just me but does the left exhaust look out of whack with the other side? 🧐 Is this a normal thing with the active exhaust; perhaps just poor assembly? Or is this a fault and something I can potentially fix? I haven't had a good poke about yet, just noticed it when I...
  10. Quick one - Rear caliper piston orientation

    Hi all - I'm sure I read somewhere and now I can't seem to find it, but, when winding the rear piston in (clockwise) is there a correct orientation that the piston should be wound back to? I can't quite remember what I read now, but is it something to do with the groove / V has to be at the 12...
  11. Steeda Intake - Just unlucky? Poor quality.

    Finally got my Steeda intake and tune applied. I must say I am not impressed at all @[email protected] with the quality of the product. It is very poor. So my first, shall we say "annoyance" was that the tune took 2 weeks to arrive after I submitted the form. Not the end of the world, but when the...
  12. Steeda Tune turn around timescale?

    Hey all What experience have you had with Steeda for their tunes? I submitted the form online 6 days ago but still haven't heard back from them. I've sent them a message online but probably won't hear back for a few days. Does it usually take a long time? I'm just keen to get this kit fitted...
  13. Sticky brake pedal?

    Hey, bit of a weird one. I noticed when driving today that after braking if I slowly lift my foot off the brake pedal there is a slight delay before it releases and comes back up. I have issues with my discs anyway. Not happy with how they feel, they are all ridged. Front discs also have pad...
  14. Rear discs - Is this normal?

    Hey Just doing some bits to the car today and finally had the rear wheels off. Both rear discs have noticeable ridging on them, which I can feel with my finger. No lip on the outer edge of the discs and pads seem to have plenty of meat on them. Fronts are similar but not as defined. These...
  15. Axle stand location

    Total n00b question I know. I feel embarrassed just asking. :giggle: If I want to work under the car safely and easily, where is the best location to put the axle stands. Is it as simple as "anywhere on the front and rear axle"? Also, is there a way to jack the front and rear in one go to get...
  16. 10R80 weird experience tonight. Normal?

    Hey all I hope you can help, tonight I just had a weird experience which I wondered, is it normal behaviour. So car was cold, I started up and sat for a minute and pulled away (all in normal drive). Revs were high as it was still on choke and warming up. Just about a minute into dthe drive...
  17. Leaking air from tyre valve - What would be the fix?

    Hey all So I was out cleaning the glass on the GT when I heard a faint hissing. I thought "please don't let it be a puncture" as these Bridgestone Potenza Sport tyres are practically brand new! Now... I've just had the alloys refurbished and when I was checking for a puncture I noticed that...
