  1. DI Water Systems

    I rented a portable DI tank from a local company last year and it worked pretty well, even with a pressure washer. It wasn't perfect, but it was completely doable to wash the car in the hot desert sun with good method without leaving water spots every centimeter on the paint. Wasn't that...
  2. The 5.0 stranded me on the side of the road today

    This. Mine was 8% high, adjusted it down and it's still a little high but it's within 1% now.
  3. Resonator or muffler delete

    Video never does stuff justice, it's way louder in person lol
  4. Gen 3 block swapping a Gen 2

    Gen 3 block is stronger, but you have the plasma coating to deal with which is nice from a cost to manufacture standpoint but IMO not a ton else. There's nothing "wrong" with it really, but you ideally want to use forged pistons with it so the expansion rates are closely matched. A Gen 2 block...
  5. Resonator or muffler delete

    I have a Pypes 3 inch muffler delete axle back with 4 inch stainless tips. Stock resonator. I love it. Minimal drone, deep loud sound lol. Exhaust is very subjective though, someone's minor drone may be unbearable for someone else. Expect to have to try a few setups. Open single chamber mufflers...
  6. Bell housing leak

    Clutch slave or rear main. Either way trans has to be dropped. Not the end of the world on the s550 chassis luckily
  7. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    I'm gonna remove it once my new nuts get here, lol. I ordered 20 of them so I can take off and put back the brace "properly" up to 5 times.
  8. What other cars did you consider?

    I don't disagree that its one of the best performing cars for the money but....I'd much rather have the GT350, lol. After a certain point, the performance becomes irrelevant and experience is everything. Voodoo > LT4. Of course that's just my opinion.
  9. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Everyone in a 5 mile radius must hear you lol
  10. What other cars did you consider?

    GM seems all about making bespoke one off motors lately. They have plenty of money to waste it would seem.
  11. What other cars did you consider?

    Only a few things really appeal to me if I was getting another car. A Cayman GTS or base 911, or a GT350. Driving experience is more important to me than raw performance, although none of those cars are slow, lol. I also like the new CTS-V.
  12. C8 Z06 spied at Milford Proving Grounds, a new flat plane crank has joined the chat

    All flat planes have excessive vibration though. I think the main drawback of the UDUD setup is that inertia is higher so it won't rev as fast. The extra polar imbalance is fairly minimal compared to the typical designs. BUT I just learned all this stuff like 30 minutes ago, so I'm far from an...
  13. 2016 v6 has been repaired 6 times for a rear main seal leak

    The classic Ford dealership experience, ruining good cars for people since...forever.
  14. C8 Z06 spied at Milford Proving Grounds, a new flat plane crank has joined the chat

    I see now, I had bad information unfortunately. I found this which explains some of the decision making, a lot of it seemed to revolve around being the best option to save having to re-engineer tons of other items...
  15. C8 Z06 spied at Milford Proving Grounds, a new flat plane crank has joined the chat

    What do you mean? The Voodoo sounds the way it does because of the firing order, not the construction. Personally I prefer it, it's very unique. Sounds like a mash up of a cross plane and flat plane engine.
  16. C8 Z06 spied at Milford Proving Grounds, a new flat plane crank has joined the chat

    Listen to this thing scream. Sounds just like a Ferrari 458. I didn't believe the rumors for a while, but now it's confirmed by my own ears.
  17. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    I love the Dragon, such a fun road. You also have to do some other other roads in the area, like the Devil's Triangle and Cherohala Skyway. The Skyway was my favorite, personally, because you can absolutely HAUL ASS. Traffic is often lower too.
  18. 2016 v6 has been repaired 6 times for a rear main seal leak

    Improper job, damaged crank that's nicking the seal, or (least likely) PCV valve is stuck shut and the crankcase is overpressurizing from blow by and blowing out the rear main.
  19. How Do You Wash These Cars?

    I just lock the car then put the key in my house. The key simply has to be out of range and the proximity lock/unlock feature won't work. Buy a faraday pouch. Or disable proximity entry in the menus before you wash.
