    Wheel and tire advice?

    American Racing has some nice looking wheels but all the 18" ones are only 8" wide and if I'm going to empty out my wallet for bigger and better tires might as well make it count, right?

    Gizmo sure is a lucky boy!! Of course the 50mm Z-Mount is killing it as usual.

    My 300 f4 works quite well on my Z6, however I'm excited to upgrade to the Tamron 150-600 G2 in a short bit. Definitely need the range so I can crop less. This is a 100% crop shooting out my side window.

    Try LMR.com here in Texas, they carry the SVE drift & other styles. If you go high dollar, Forgeline or Forgestar are great. Also look at American Racing wheels who has new models for us. Width matters on track for quickest time, on the street 275-285 tires 9-10 wheel.

    Yeah that gives pretty good piece of mind. I can’t think of specific wheel off the top of my head but it was on American Muscle’s website so I assume it would fit fine?

    Well. Meh? SVE’s are good because the figment is legit made for mustangs, and they are a tried and true wheel. A lot of track day people use them as track wheels, so they have a good rep of being well made and don’t fail. Not saying other wheels will fail, but, I can say SVE’s have a good track record, literally. But, ultimately, unless you really do plan to track the car and such things matter, any wheel that fits will be fine, whatever your eye likes best. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I keep going back and forth with keeping my stock wheels or getting new ones.

    Sorry not tire I meant wheel.

    What tires? It really just comes down to quality of tire compound. Yes, weight matters. But does it REALLY matter..? Are you trying to win a race, or beat a time? If not, it doesn’t “matter”. But, a cheaper tire may wear worse, translate more sound through them, be less sticky, or really that’s about it. But, that’s not to say that is for sure. Depends on what tire your looking at, and what your needs are. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yeah that makes since. Also I was looking at some tires that were 20ish dollars cheaper a pop than the ones you recommend but are about 1 and a half pounds heavier per wheel as well. I know it’s unsprung weight so it makes more of a difference but is that difference worth more than $80? Sorry for all the questions, it’s basically all I do on here but you guys are all extremely knowledgeable.

    Thanks. God, there's so much information and stuff out there it's hard to figure out where to even start.

    235, and I think its a 7.5 iirc. And yes, if the diameter of the new tires are different, your spedo will be affected. You can easily fix that with the tuner you have though.

    Does anyone know how wide a tire you can fit on the stock 17 inch wheels or at least how wide the rims are? I'm struggling to find info on this. Also would changing the tire and/or wheel effect the speedometer?

    Well, the confusion continues. Buddy’s dad took at look at the engine schematics. Doesn’t show anything in the location in question. He did see the TSB for the hose and pump, said the reason the pump does have 3 bolts vs 4 for the pulley is the pump itself was revised as well. His pops does the building, uncle does other related things and he told my buddy to get in touch with the uncle as it’s possible the part is part of the all up engine gasket/seal/whatever it’s called kit. Also, he said basically every ford motor uses grey RTV not black, so I likely am not pulling any RTV out since it is black, and not grey. Also, after taking a closer look at things, the water pump does have an oring in it that slides over the tube into the block. Is this rubber o-ring not even sealing anything? Is it there just to take up the gap between the pump and whatever is behind the timing cover? Still unclear, need more info at this time. I may just fill it up with water, rip it a few times, and see if all the water stays inside the motor lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yup Oem ftw on this one, good deal they are satin black but to me look dark blue.... Either way the brembo logo stands out better than the red ones. Intercooler and turbo arrived yesterday. I am just waiting for my bud to finish the brakes for me. Brakes Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Simply because of the tearing of the material I saw as I was removing it and the fact I can’t find this part in the water pump assembly exploded view. The part number ford gave me from the schematic’s HR1 is BR3Z-8527-A and stated this came with the pump kit I bought. The only oring I received is for the line going to the radiator. They did provide me with dimensions of what that HR1 oring is, so Friday I will have to confirm either I was sent the wrong oring, or it is in-fact not what I need. Until then I guess I have hit a wall as I can’t seem to find more information. I will try and get a full 3.7 assembly drawing if I can. I guess Friday will be lots of pictures and measurement taking day... this really shouldn’t be this hard. Maybe it’s as simple as I was shipped the wrong oring and all will be fine. Sort of doubt it tho since it came in a nice sealed plastic kit from Ford, the dealer didn’t package it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I don't understand why you keep mentioning the timing cover. It looks like you are talking about the O-ring on the water pump. I don't see where the timing cover is involved in this.

    Wow, and they are even coated and have the sticker/painted brembo on them. Thats unreal.

    Ah these are glorious, gunna be a huge improvement. Definitely not reducing weight here lol. Opened up the CAI kit from Airaid, found the install kit did not look right based on the instructions, come to find its the kit for the 2012-15 Chevy Camaro V6... sigh. Well they said they were over night shipping the correct kit so we will see. lol.

    I agree with this, and that is why I am thinking some wet RTV hit the o-ring in question while setting up, and that is what I saw. It does seem like the oring is pretty stout material, thinking back I would be surprised if I actually did tear it as easily as I did. But my fear is it’s some injection molded cover seal that integrates this oring, and the area behind the cover may be thin and that is what I tore. I just really need to see what parts are used and how the timing cover is sealed. That will be valuable info. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If you could touch the o-ring in question, why would you have to remove the timing cover to replace it? If the seal is behind the timing cover I see no reason you could even see it let alone damage it.

    The Blue Beast

    I can’t post the RTV part for some reason. But I definitely did puncture the o-ring in question trying to remove it, so it needs to be replaced regardless. My buddies dad has an engine shop and they have schematics for most every motor. I’m going to try and get some data from him so I can see how this thing is out together.

    I want to see a photo of the damage you are referring to, not simply where you think it is. For all we know it is indeed just some RTV and there is no real damage at all. Yes, if it's not broke don't fix it. Way too easy to screw it up beyond a simple fix. Even after decades as a master tech I still screw up cam timing from time to time and it is no bueno.
