  1. Used Mustang... That price, tho!

    Must have been influenced by the P-38.
  2. New Ranger or Silverado?

    A friend of mine has an F-150. Does the same thing and he hates it. And I've heard the price for a new starter for those is insane.
  3. Crazy DSS DS Vibration at 60+mph

    What kind of janky machine shop do they have that something is .008" out? I haven't had one of these Mustang driveshafts off the car. Do these use alignment pins or some kind of spline to keep them running true?
  4. Is she totaled?

    As long as it didn't do irreparable damage to the engine (and I doubt it did) you'll probably be ok.
  5. (unconfirmed) Source of AC Evap Failures Possibly Identified [POLL]

    That is a typical design for modern evaporators, not usually problematic. If it's like the ones I've seen, a material is sprayed all over the core and it is run through an oven where the braze material flows out into the voids. Maybe they somehow did not get good coverage of the braze material.
  6. Had enough of aftermarket CAI & HIGH IAT's. So here's my fix.

    If it’s that tight, I’m guessing that one might have to remove the fender liner to gain access for filter maintenance, etc.
  7. Had enough of aftermarket CAI & HIGH IAT's. So here's my fix.

    You will definitely see improvement by keeping radiator wash and engine bay heat from entering the filter. Closing the gaps. Insulating the piping itself is not going to do much, if anything. The trick is to draw colder air in without impeding the high flow that the PMAS provides. As someone...
  8. PMAS no tune question

    I used the no tune PMAS for quite a while and had zero issues with performance or passing inspections. I'm still running the same intake, but with a stock MAF and a tune. That's one thing I like about it. If I want to change back to the stock tune, all I have to do is put the PMAS MAF back in...
  9. Had enough of aftermarket CAI & HIGH IAT's. So here's my fix.

    I went on and looked at the pics, that's a good idea. I've wondered why they didn't do that to begin with. Should be a great upgrade.
  10. Mustang GT vs ... (Post whatever you've raced and how it went)

    Played with an ML63 AMG. I started out easy in 1st like I often do and then hit it in 2nd but not all the beans, I was just driving and having fun. Next thing I know he was catching up to me and decided to play. I then wound it up and we stayed fender to fender and then we backed out of it. I’m...
  11. When did Ford change the recommended engine oil for the GT?

    A friend of mine has a newer F-150. Every time he gets in the truck he has to turn off the engine shutdown "feature". The starters for those trucks are ridiculous expensive too. It is stupid. Cylinder deactivation makes more sense to me.
  12. Tire with some longevity?

    Ultimate performance and good tread life does not go hand in hand. It is always a compromise. That is why I opted for a Michelin A/S performance tire. I think it is a great balance of the two. But... if you like to spin the tires nothing will last long. I burned through Pirelli summers as well...
  13. Steeda stop the hop enthusiast kit help!

    I think spherical bushings are going to be harsh by nature. They focus on maintaining movement without compliance.
  14. Tis a sad day that I wish was an April fools joke.

    I love old folks but some of them need their keys taken away. I had to take Mom’s away. Hard to do but necessary.
  15. What is wrong with people....why would you do this to this car!!

    The thing is, someone will buy it and be completely unaware of what it should look like. Ignorance is bliss! I do get it. Seems weird to take a limited edition model and change it all up. I’d rather take a garden variety Mustang and customize it.
  16. Ford Performance Street Handling pack experience

    Driving the car a couple of days ago in some more challenging situations for a suspension showed me there is certainly room for improvement. I took some curves that were not especially smooth. When the road is smooth, the suspension can take a "set" and you can really go for it, but any...
  17. Covid Shots

    My wife recently got her 2nd Moderna shot. Mild side effects, kind of tired and felt a little off for one day, but that’s it. I just got the first shot of the Pfizer, just a mild sore arm for an evening. I go back in April for the second. A friend of my wife and I got hit hard by Covid. Between...
  18. Which gas do you guys use?

    I have a 91 octane tune, and running 93 octane top tier gas (Shell, Chevron, Exxon, etc). I like having margin. I run top tier gas my 2 other cars, but usually only 87 or 89 octane. My wife pumps her own gas in her CX-5. I think she uses the 93 octane a lot because she likes the "zoom zoom".
  19. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    In the last few weeks, added the black horse, put some stainless screws in different places around the engine compartment, and tonight put stainless screws on the engine cover.
  20. BREITLING, ROLEX, TUDOR, OMEGA, anybody into high end watches?

    I wear a Garmin Instinct fitness watch all the time now, so I never wear any of the other watches I have. My wife does have an old Rolex she inherited. I might need to check the value on that.
