  1. Slight pavement scrape-is M1 ride height lower than GT?

    Intrigued by my own photos, yes, the belly pan is lower still than the front splitter lip, by 1 inch / 25 mm. Previously, I'd practiced using my ramps and took some measurements. The ramps have an angle of approach of about 6.5'. The Ford manual says to stay under 7'. At approach, I have 1.5"...
  2. Battery Tender Installation, Light Flicker and Fuel Pump Cycle

    Just the negative cable. The - side of the battery is where the excess of electrons reside, versus the + side. Keeping one hand free, use another to loosen the cable at the negative post and remove. You'll be fine then. After repairs and when returning the cable to the post, use one hand when...
  3. PPF

    I have PPF, but not over or under any of the decals. None of my decals are protected. The business which did my PPF work is an Xpel franchisee; this affords them access to 3M's database of automotive templates. Using a plotter, the tech simply printed out what was needed. Nothing was...
  4. '23 order banks open again?

    If your order is in, you're GTG. "Balance Out" is Ford's method of scheduling remaining current MY production before scheduling for the next MY's production. Some explanations from other forums: "Balance out is end of scheduling for the model year. Doesn't mean that they will have everything...
  5. Hard Parking: A Mach 1 Picture Only Thread.

    If possible, another member brought up something past you might consider: pool noodles; they come in different colors (orange for you, maybe?). Using string, dental floss or something like that, you could hang a noodle from both ends, lengthwise and leave it there. Set it and forget it. Noodles...
  6. Battery Tender Installation, Light Flicker and Fuel Pump Cycle

    Welcome to the forums. :fistbump: The connections are in the right place. It reads like you installed the tender while the battery was still connected at both posts? If so, that could cause the conditions you mentioned. If you had disconnected the battery prior and then installed the tender...
  7. Air intake sleeve question.

    The sleeve should stay in place, to keep the fuel trims at a good point. If the sleeve is removed, fuel trims reach their outter limit. Little to no variance or adjustment by the car is left. Keeping the sleeve has no impact on HP. Remove the filter only and you're GTG.
  8. Thick white smoke upon acceleration - 2018 Mustang GT

    That sounds great. :thumbsup:Hopefully, something simple or cold temps. Welcome BTW. :clap:
  9. Thick white smoke upon acceleration - 2018 Mustang GT

    FWIW, it seems more cold temps and condensation than anything else. I'd think if it was oil or coolant, the smoke would be 1) denser and 2) remain in the air longer. Being a new buy, I'd continue to check fluid levels, hot and cold, record and continue to monitor, for confidence.
  10. I think I need a new APIM, any advice?

    I read where you attempted to upgrade the SYNC software and received the code. Is taking the car to the dealer, deleting and factory-defaulting the SYNC system with a new baseline a possibility? Might work, might not. Could help confirm what the problem is, before spending more $.
  11. Looking for recommendations on which GT to buy.

    I had good success via Internet Sales. If you see something you like on-line, click and respond to the ad. Stay home and negotiate via phone and e-mail, with a later in-person follow-up and inspection. Several owners, using a heat gun and patience, have removed some or all decals, without harm...
  12. Looking for recommendations on which GT to buy.

    My belief is what's happening to the market now has just started, that the softening on prices would continue, especially once the S650 arrives in the next few months. I can't predict the future any better than anyone else. At one extreme, people will snap up inventory and the opportunity will...
  13. Looking for recommendations on which GT to buy.

    Welcome to the forums. :clap: The graphic above is a great reference. Reads like a Mach 1 with HP could hit the sweet spot. You'll could have to stay open-minded on color and some options, but your core needs could be met. Several things are moving in your favor. While MY22 ended late last...
  14. My2023

    Thanks again. Currently studying some others on-line (in-person learning is best, but it can get expensive), but long-term, I could add Italian to the list. It's an energetic, animated language that's pleasing to the ear, even if someone is cursing at you. LOL. There are a handful of Internet...
  15. My2023

    He should be able to sit-down with the salesperson, who can then bring the order and contact information up. Often, customer information is good and it's simply Ford and their systems lagging. I think for the overwhelming majority of us, things eventually catch up and begin moving again...
  16. My2023

    I VIN vengono spesso assegnati una volta che l'auto è stata programmata per la produzione. Ricevere un VIN in regalo è un grande passo nel viaggio. :handsinair: Le date potrebbero essere slittate, il che non è raro. La mia data di produzione è slittata un paio di volte. C'erano spesso enormi...

  19. Formula 1 talk.

    I'm really happy for Ford and Red Bull. I see nothing negative from them joining forces, only positives. Audi? I'd favor them to come up with something never-thought-of-before, like Brawn did. I wish Chevrolet well; IMO, they have the steepest hill to climb (no pun intended). I'd love to see...
