Re: Q's for anyone familiar with painting cars

My car is like yours...metal body panels are in good shape overall, plastic ones covered in rock chips.

I had my front bumper painted last year and it looked amazing when I got it back. But it...

Re: Z26 Powerstop pads wouldn't fit

Yes, I didn't realize it but maybe that was confusing. I'm not talking about the thickness of the friction material. I'm talking about the actual width (or length depending on how you're looking at...

Re: Z26 Powerstop pads wouldn't fit

Thanks. I ended up taking the rears back apart to just check and make sure the pads could move and weren't seized up so tight in the calipers that they'd be useless. Gave me peace of mind. :D ...

Z26 Powerstop pads wouldn't fit

I bought the Powerstop Z26 Street Warrior brake kits from RockAuto.com. The kits come with new rotors that are drilled/slotted and new carbon ceramic high performance pads.

The front went fine. ...

Re: Dealing with rock chips

So, I ended up taking the car to the lowest bidder. He covered the front bumper and edge of the hood with SolarGard Clearshield Pro film and charged me $450. It is nearly invisible...except that...

Re: 2020 Hi-Po 4 cyl?

Yes the 2.7L EcoBust would wake that car up. In fact, it would be faster than the 5.0 and that's exactly why they'll never do it.

Even in the F-150s, the 2.7L trucks mop the floor with the 5.0L...

Re: Help deciding on an exhaust

I have a MAC O/R H-pipe and factory Mach 1 cat-back. It's surprisingly loud and it sounds a m a z i n g under moderate throttle outside the car. There is zero drone inside the car and cruising is...

Re: Dealing with rock chips

I've also considered a Colgan bra for the front that I could use during my weekly commute and then take it off for the weekend car shows. That would certainly do the trick, it would just be a pain...

Dealing with rock chips

So, since I started driving in 1995 I've lost track of how many vehicles I have owned. It's sort of a sickness. Lol. Mustangs, Camaros, a Challenger...Jeeps, pickups, etc. Maybe 25 vehicles or so...

Re: What to do to get 300 rwhp on a Mach 1

I haven't put my Mach on a dyno yet.

But the 2V GT cars almost always made 220-225 stock. Mine with CAI, TB, underdrive pullies, exhaust, and 3.73 gears made 260 on a Mustang brand dyno which is...

Re: New Mach 1 owner w/12,000 mi

I'm amazed at how many Mach 1s there still are with very low mileage on them. I didn't realize that in 2003 guys actually thought about these cars as collectible in the way the late 60s cars were.

Re: Spark plugs and lack of power

Same issue on my '01 GT. Multiple tune revisions through e-mail with Bama and the car kept pinging.

I finally got sick of it and bit the bullet and paid for dyno time locally and the car ran...

Re: Wheel Bearing Nuts?

Yep, mechanical leverage. The farther from the hub you mount the caliper, the more braking force you'll get.

But, regardless of rotor size, covering the entire surface with brake pad would still...

Re: Wheel Bearing Nuts?

Oh, and I forgot to mention that the reason I became suspicious is because at the end of last year's car show/cruise season, I was starting to hear a very faint noise from the front end. The noise...

Re: Spark plugs and lack of power

I stayed with the factory Motorcraft plugs when I did mine, and my car runs like a scalded dog. It surprises people how quick it is for a 16 year old 99% stock car.

I also have a SCT tuner and I...

Re: Wheel Bearing Nuts?

Ended up not being a big deal. I just put my 24" breaker bar on it with the 36mm socket and broke them loose pretty easily.

BTW...the nuts on mine were actually not 36mm. The 36mm fits, loosely,...

Re: The Parts Farm?

Yeah those are the primary reasons I wanted an Eaton swap. It's a cleaner looking installation when it's done, and it sounds like heaven under throttle.

Good luck with the project. Post some...

Re: Wheel Bearing Nuts?

Well, I do have a 18" breaker bar. And I weigh 230 lbs. So technically I guess I could stand on the end of the breaker bar and it would get me right where I need to be. :laugh: Might have to use...

Re: Wheel Bearing Nuts?

Yes the torque spec is 250 ft/lbs. I'm still trying to find out if anybody I know has a torque wrench that will go that high. :3b:

I went ahead and picked up two new spindle nuts. O'reilly here...
