  1. 2022 Mustang Mach 1 Whipple Stage 1 Supercharger Dyno

    ... always appreciate your posts Zach. Sorry to hijack. Best to you and your biz.
  2. Found this metal on my oil plug. What is this?

    I'd do an oil change now. Enjoy the car, nothing you can do about it now. In 5000 kms do an oil analysis to see if the car is eating itself up. If not, this is one close call for the record books. If so, you know early enough so you can do as little damage as possible. Good luck friend.
  3. Mustang Convertible Top & Snow

    Had a convertible fabric top vehicle in Durham Region for many years. Wash it, light scrub and dry then use RAGGTOPP fabric protector. Hopefully you can do this before the winter. This product is endorsed by Haartz who makes most of the convertible tops for OEMs. The real issues are...
  4. Mach 1 Oil Filter Gasket, Don't Lubricate?!

    Random thought: does it bother anybody that Ford is one of the few OEMs that stock their oil filters without any protection covering the top of the filter? Meaning any dirt could drop into the fresh oil side of the filter if mis handled. Most other filters come sealed or with a plastic top...
  5. Mach 1 Oil Filter Gasket, Don't Lubricate?!

    There was a thread on this a while back. The service manual for the 5.0L and 5.2L engine says DO NOT oil the rubber seal. I didn't believe it until I read it myself. The harmonics of the Voodo flat plane was causing spin on filters to loosen, but not on the 5.0L, so not sure why that...
  6. High oil pressure

    Normal. Within a few mins you'll see it slowly creep down to 90 then slowly down to "normal", for me 60-80 during throttle and 20 or just a bit less at idle.
  7. s550 vs Boss 302

    .. buddy of mine has a new M1 and Boss 302. Says they are entirely different cars. With the red key the coyote shakes, rumbles and crackles out the side exhaust. Says it feels raw and rowdy to drive, entirely different than the M1 and if he had to choose the B302 any day, just feels WAY more...
  8. PowerStop Z26 Street Warrior & AmericanMuscle opinions

    No, I had the Z26. I am talking about the "POWER STOP 161792 Z16 Evolution Clean Ride Ceramic"
  9. Ford Performance Tune for 2018+ GT

    My understanding is that "knkadder" when showing negative is adding timing and when positive is taking away timing. It seems the negative number is the actual timing advance, yet the positive number is what is being taken away from the base timing advance (knock... and that means you don't end...
  10. Ford Performance Tune for 2018+ GT

    After reading this post a few weeks back, I plugged in my ProCal4 and started watching. '21 GT PP1 manual no engine mods. I see the knock sensor count readings moving around (I almost think these are measured in frequency???) and watching the KnockAdder it is almost always in the negative...
  11. What are normal IAT's above ambient for the stock airbox on 2018+ GT?

    On the highway and steady cruise on 45-55 MPH roads 3-4F difference. Sitting in traffic, puttering around town, well that is anybody's guess, and it could be high! If I am sitting in traffic, drive through or whatever and hit the highway with 120F intake air within 10 mins of highway it is...
  12. New owner - engine failure

    It is very quick now to figure out low compression with the "cylinder balance test" mode on the high end scanners. An alternator, confirm voltage then run that test. I think they can determine if you need a new engine pretty quickly. Keep us posted!
  13. Dealership Really Pushing ESP. How Reliable Are The Convertibles?

    ... so if you buy an 8 year plan the day you purchase the car you lose 3 years of that as it overlaps with the factory warranty.... and only get 5 after the first warranty is up? So it really makes sense to purchase it a few months before the factory warranty is up so you get the full amount of...
  14. FP Track Handling Kit issues

    I did this kit, if I remember correctly I flipped the bracket up side down...
  15. Preparing to buy my first S550, Need some advice

    For me the GT350 engine scares me a lot more than the MT82... which has turned out to be a great trans for me.
  16. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    I've tried all Powerstop pads on my Brembos (z23, z26 and Z17 low dust version). Yes, the hardware is hit and miss. One set worked well, the other set literally wouldn't fit. With powerstop pads you only get the metal retaining bracket, not the bolt and nut and two pins. The metal retaining...
  17. I didn't know the 9-Speaker could sound this good...

    I disconnected centre and two tweeters. (I felt more than enough decent tremble comes from a decent mid) Installed 3.5" Mids with 600Hz bass blockers. Have not done the EQ mod. Holy smokes... if the OP likes what he hears now... wait until that tiny change of the 3.5s is done (with bass...
  18. Anti Roll Bars DIY? Just pay someone.

    I'm sorry this was a pain for you, that sucks. I, too, did the FP kit and the front sway bar was MUCH easier than I was expecting. As I look back on pictures, having the strut out of the way and the rotor off for sure makes it much easier to get out, as there is a funky angle that needs to...
  19. 7.3 GT350 Revealed (With Video)

    ... isn't the ZZ572 over 720 HP? Also there is a new 630 CI engine, not sure stats on that.
