    Rusting bodywork

    Holy crap! I just got rid of my 18 yr old 150,000 mile Volvo used all yr round and never washed, and it looked in better condition than that on the body and alloys.

    Picking up my first brand new Mustang!

    Check over the hood and fenders for aluminium corrosion. Look on the underside of the hood too. They corrode really fast these aluminium panels.

    Rusting bodywork

    I've been looking at gt350 replica front wings, but they are a bit wider than standard wings, especially on the back of the front arch. This necessitates wider wheels/spacers to fill them for starters, but also looks a bit rubbish with the standard bumper. Seems like you also need a way of...

    New Bullitt with some mods and 2 videos ;-) (and greetings from Germany)

    Correct in EU we measure at the crank, which means tuner cars are put on a (often inaccurate) dyno to measure at the wheels, then minus a percentage of approx 15% (but this may vary to make the numbers look better) to account for drive train losses. The resulting figure is then usually rounded...

    New Bullitt with some mods and 2 videos ;-) (and greetings from Germany)

    If you look at the rpm he is pulling 6400 rpm at 290km/h at those revs the ported 2018 manifold gives you more power than the gt350 manifold. If he had a different diff ratio in there and was pulling 7500rpm at max speed the gt350 mani would give him more power. For a road car the stock 2018...

    Rusting bodywork

    check your service book. After the pages for general servicing there are pages titled "bodywork check". They require separate stamps apparently. I guess I have just got used to modern cars not rusting. If you buy a Ford you need to accept they are very cheaply made. Im now in two minds if I...

    Mustang Mach 1 UK Dealership Tour

    Does anyone know when the Mach 1 will be touring Cheshire dealers? Im tempted to follow it and park my car near the dealers covered in signage pointing out the rust and fords response so that anyone interested in a mach 1 knows what they are in for....

    Rusting bodywork

    My car is an October 2016 build date, its always garaged, always clean, its done 15,000 miles in dry conditions and it has no spacers and stock wheels so hasn't been stone chipped by wide rubber. I recently noticed some bubbling of the aluminium on the front wing right at the front of the wheel...

    Mustang Mach 1 UK Dealership Tour

    When talk turns to monthly rental payments instead of cash price things get really strange. I was offered a base spec AMG e63 ex demo car for less than those monthly prices not long ago.

    Mustang Mach 1 UK Dealership Tour

    I’m of the same opinion. The Mach 1 only makes sense in America with the track pack, and then only because the gt350 is no longer available. Personally if I was in the USA I would be buying a used gt350 over a new Mach 1 at the same price. In the U.K. a fully loaded GT is no longer the great...

    Engine Masters - different octane comparison on engine dyno

    Depends where in the world you are from and your age as to what word you use to describe it. The poster is in the U.K. and here the term used to describe the ping/pink sound is generally pinking. Ie a description of the sound. There is no hard G when you hear knock on a British engine. Maybe on...

    Dropped a piece of glove on an intake valve.......

    We have all made mistakes with torque wrenches. My advice to to buy a range of torque wrenches for different applications. My big wrench went down to 100 ft/lbs but this is right at its bottom setting. Hence when I did my manifold I bought a smaller wrench that had 100 ft/lbs dead centre in its...

    Aluminium fender corrosion.

    I’m in the U.K. sadly so our paint warranty is 3 yrs and the perforation warranty is 12 yrs. I doubt they would class the metal as perforated all the way through.

    Aluminium fender corrosion.

    Mine is an October 2016 build car. 15000 miles, always garaged and seldom used in anything except sunny weather. I don’t have wider wheels or spacers. Today I noticed this bubbling on the front fender which I find rather disappointing as the 3 yr paint warranty has expired. It gives me...

    Velossa Tech Design - BIG MOUTH development

    interesting. I believe I am experiencing fan backwash. I have a my17 GT with the gt350 manifold and gt350 CAI, and a very open Steeda filter. When the fans come on it goes slightly lean and the closed loop has to compensate by richening the mixture a little. My tuner said this sounds like fan...

    Which gas do you guys use?

    Zero sympathy. We pay the equivalent of $6.91 per US gallon for shell v power.

    Which gas do you guys use?

    If memory serves BP call their good stuff Ultimate. It’s nearly as good as shell vpower being 98 RON instead of 99 RON

    PMAS intake w/tune stalling on warm start

    I’m using factory gt350 CAI and TB but stock GT MAF and steeda air filter. All Ford parts except the air filter and the AED tune. As I sat under all other circumstances it’s perfect and drives like a factory set up.

    PMAS intake w/tune stalling on warm start

    I occasionally experience something similar with my gt350 im and TB combination on my 2017 GT (aed tune). It only seems to occur if I am stuck in stop start traffic jams, then stop to fill up with fuel. Then on restarting it can occasionally suffer a stall. I suspect it’s being caused by heat...
