    Bullitt exhaust sounds changes with steeda tune?

    The Livernois tune I had before wasn't that impressive for me either. A little bit of SOTP but not much. The AED tune really was a step-change difference. I would expect the same from Lund, PBD, also. Sprintbooster/Pedal Commander just change the input/output of the pedal signal, there's no...

    Bullitt exhaust sounds changes with steeda tune?

    Not a Bullitt, but my GT definitely changed tone significantly in the same ways as the OP describing when I got my AED tune.

    FRP Track handling

    100% agree....and then make a REAL track pack for an aftermarket upgrade from Ford Performance. The base suspension is too much of a marshmallow all around (doesn't even ride that well).

    BMR Tech Tip: Clock those bushings after lowering your S550!

    Left and right are the same for the front. Both values are there. If you have a Perf Pack car, you only need to to the forward link (the red one) on the front. The lateral link is a bearing and doesn't need to be clocked. On the rear, the key ones to get are the LCA bushing (166 ft-lb), toe...

    17 GT Catback decisions.

    IMO, very loud, a bit too raspy and not as refined/engineered tone as Corsa/AWE, for instance.

    Spring spacers, results may vary.

    -2 is fine (and recommended) for performance usage. Agreed on -1.5 for street driving.

    Torsen vs standard Traction lok LSD differential pros and cons?

    Friction is friction. https://torsen.com/how-it-works/

    Torsen vs standard Traction lok LSD differential pros and cons?

    Less. About 5-10% less TBR. Going up to the 75W140 from 75W90 has about a 10% reduction in TBR also.

    Torsen vs standard Traction lok LSD differential pros and cons?

    Both are T2R units, and I'd guess the difference in TBR is down to the fluid fill and modifier (or lack thereof). I have a GT350 diff in mine with the 75W90 BG oil w/ friction modifier. It works very well for open track and autocross.

    Is this the beginning of the end for catless products [CLOSED DUE TO POLITICS]

    Shhh, Norm, we can't have intelligent conversation about a complex, nuanced topic. That would make way too much sense.

    Torsen vs standard Traction lok LSD differential pros and cons?

    No. If the car is fishtailing in a straight line, either the road isn't actually straight, has heavy crown, or you have an alignment discrepancy left to right. On corner exit, the torsen is far easier to control throttle-induced yaw.

    SP083/B6 install question

    Both are excellent choices for the SP083s and you would not be making a mistake either way.

    Torsen vs standard Traction lok LSD differential pros and cons?

    The Trac-Loc just doesn't have a strong bias ratio in general, so it feels a bit more like an 'Open' diff on coast, particularly with 70k mile heavily used clutches.

    17 GT Catback decisions.

    Get someone to swap axlebacks with you Touring for Sport. I see that all the time and have done it myself (but the opposite). There are a lot more people wanting to go to the Sport Catback from the Xtreme after adding long tubes.

    Torsen vs standard Traction lok LSD differential pros and cons?

    I'd say in general, but more specifically autocross where the relative speeds between the inside and outside is/needs to be larger due to corner radius. The torsen bias ratio goes both ways, and has the opposite effect off throttle/engine braking. We saw this rear its ugly head with our Formula...

    Torsen vs standard Traction lok LSD differential pros and cons?

    That's not my experience of how it operates. The trak lock actually had less corner entry understeer than the torsen does, but that didn't make up for the improvement in grip and torque biasing yaw on power the torsen has.

    Mustang V8 vs Ecoboost

    The lighter front can be an advantage for something like autocross, thus why the EB is classed higher than the GT for SCCA street classes. On a road course, the small weight advantage will not be enough to overcome the power deficit unless it's significantly modded. 430-450 reliable whp is easy...
