  1. 2022 Mustang Mach 1 Whipple Stage 1 Supercharger Dyno

    Looking at the dyno chart above. The power numbers are quoted at 7340 rpms, with 91 octane fuel. Whipple quotes their HP numbers using 93 octane fuel and it doesn't state at which rpm they got their numbers from. I know that the stage 2 rpm numbers are taken at 7,740 rpms, but I don't know if...
  2. Whipple Supercharger Oil Change.

    I'm just curious if anyone with a Whipple supercharger, with only a oil fill plug has had to do a oil change yet. I just did an oil level check and since in my case, I had to use a mirror to see the plug. I just filled a syringe that had a clear tube at the end and squirted oil into the fill...
  3. OPG/CS Options - Preparing for SC

    Just a heads up. If you are planning to do the gears yourself, you have to lower the front of the oil pan, if it's the composite type pan. You have to do that so the oil pickup tube will come free from the oil pump. I used a 14" 1/4 extension, along with other lengths depending on where the...
  4. How to clean up silicon sealant?

    I use silicone at work quite frequently. We in the aviation industry call it RTV. You are not gonna have a fun time removing the excess dried silicone. Typically you have to use a metal scrper or razor blade to remove it, then hit it with MEK or acetone to clean the surface. Like others have...
  5. Ford Protect Extended Service Plan - $50 over Dealer Cost

    I called them on Friday, was told that the person who handles the warranty was on vacation. I asked if there was anyone else in the office that can handle the transaction and I was told no. I was ready to buy the warranty right then and there. I called another dealership and got the same price...
  6. Ford Flood ESP

    I don't have any experience with taking a warranty from one car and transferring it to another. I don't know if you can do it or not. I'd call the dealership you bought the warranty from and ask them. If you can't, just request a cancellation, use the money returned to offset the cost of the...
  7. Whipple Install and oil weight thoughts

    I used the Motorcraft 5w50, when I first installed the Whipple and I just did a second oil change with the Motorcraft, because I overbought the first time and was able to get the balance from Oriley Auto, for ten and change a quart. The next oil change, I'm going to use The Pennzoil Platinum...
  8. My Mustang Won't Start

    I'd check the brake switch to see if it's functioning. I'm not sure if there are two, one for brake lights and one for the starter safety.
  9. My Mustang Won't Start

    Does the starter spin the motor?
  10. Operating temp takes a long time

    Looking at the diagram, it seems as though the heater core gets coolant directly from the R/H cylinder head. So, I would assume that the heater core would get warmer coolant faster than the normal cooling system. The diagram is from a PDF copy and doesn't show the fine lines connecting the...
  11. Operating temp takes a long time

    Looking at the System Operation page of the cooling system. The engine and heater coolant are separete. The quote below is from the Service Manual. Like SK47 stated, the heater is getting warmer coolant before the rest of the cooling system does. "Engine coolant flows primarily from the engine...
  12. Operating temp takes a long time

    The OP didn't say that this is a change from what he is used to seeing, or something that he has just now observed. He didn't state what his outside temps were during this observation. I know for me, that when outside temps are in the 40s. Going from my home to the freeway on ramp is a mile and...
  13. Look under back seat

    The tank has the LPFP, which is electric and is on the drivers side. The tank also has a transfer pump that is a jetpump. It transfers fuel from the passengers side to drivers side of the tank and is located on the passenger side of the tank. The HPFP is located on the R/H side valve cover and...
  14. what exhaust you guys running with catless headers

    I don't have headers, but am catless. I have the Borla Touring with the resonator. Deep exhaust note, with no rasp. It's at the max of my comfort level, in terms of loudness.
  15. Remote Tuning Vs. Dyno Tuning

    No, the results should be the same between dyno and remote. The big difference is that doing pulls is cheaper, but you are doing it on public roads and are subject to being busted for speed. Dyno pulls adds cost, but not subject to a speeding ticket. I've not done one in my Mustang, since I'm...
  16. Best O2 spacer/mini cat 15-17 GT

    Vibrant J shaped defoulers is what I use. I use the middle sized orifice, with good results. It now seems that Vibrant sells the orifices separately for another $12.00 per defouler. Don't use a knock off, I learned the hard way a few days ago.
  17. Remote Tuning Vs. Dyno Tuning

    Remote tuning, you do "Pulls" and datalog. You send the data logs to your tuner, they look at it and will tweak it. You then do another pull and data log, send it to them, etc, til you are maxed out. Dyno tuning, you do the pulls on a dyno and typically the tuner is in the car with a laptop and...
  18. Have you ever broken a defouler?

    I've been using the middle size orifice, with no problems in around 10K miles. YMMV.
  19. AC clutch kicks in then immediately disengages

    Sorry for the small pics. I don't have a free converter to change pdf to jpeg, so I had to take windows screen shots.
