  2. O, yea. You need steering stops. Lol. This just limits travel so “full lock” is slightly less than it is normally. I still get ever so slight rub on full lock when turning right. But jussssssst barely. https://www.americanmuscle.com/roush-steeringrack-stops.html?utm_content=Handling%20-%20Bushings/Mounts%7CRoush&T5_Var4=69052&utm_source=google-pla&utm_medium=shopping&T5_Var2=shopping&utm_campaign=AMM+Mustang+Vehicle+Medium&T5_Var3=blue&intl=0&dialogtech=ppc&gclid=Cj0KCQjw3JXtBRC8ARIsAEBHg4ky2s0ecNmNjtLDD_zbxmLtdCE_DWP2iCp3JO9a7HoGR0l3Smca8nEaAgDTEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Btw I've noticed since I've had the new wheels that if I go full lock I can hear the tires rubbing. Do you hear that on your car as well or did I get a bad install or something?
  4. Retired on the bay here on the Texas coastal bend in 2 years, wow, it's so close I can taste it! Coyote Red has all new shoes now & lost 28 lbs + weight I lost previously w/ X-pipe ect. Going fishing is very rewarding this time of year.
  5. I'll be going there in the near future to install my gears. Thanks for the recommendation, I've just been so busy I haven't had time to even think about my car for awhile.
  6. Earlier
  7. My set up is pretty modest but switching from the cheapest fans I could find at the time to all noctuas made such a world of difference. Definitely not inaudible but it's easily drowned out by even the a/c.
  8. I think the overall cost was about $1600 to $2500 if I recall, as I sold off the existing auto setup to offset the cost, I paid nearly nothing for the transmission due to the offset, but did have to shell out cash for the extra labor as the trans needed to be rebuilt, and partially for some parts, plus the extras I did buy separately like the center console top section, the barton shifter etc. It was very reasonable.
  9. Wheels are MRR M600 style but carry the SVE brand caps. A $286.00 wheel on sale @LMR as SVE GT7's. They clear Brembo's is what sold me on these. Jacking rails from Steeda went on as well & a Fumoto oil drain plug. Now it's starting to look like a Custom Car.
  10. Don’t think I ever posted pix of this, I never really took any good ones. But boy it turned out nice. Had to go ham with a cutoff wheel on the mobo VRN heatsink, have a lil 40mm noctua fan I need to design a 3d printed holder for to cool the VRM area. But, meh. I’ll get to it eventually. But, damn. That much radiator space makes a difference. Computer is never audible, at all, ever, and under game load, CPU is in the 50’s and GPU is usually high 40’s. Preeeeety nice.

  11. Is this PC hardware? Sorta? I got a ballin schiit audio tube amp and multibit dac for my headphones yesterday. I have been borrowing a buddies for months so I knew what I was buying, but still awesome to have my own. Thing is an absolute beast. And the obvious shot of his and mine next to each other, cuz that really is pretty nuts lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. The lower’s injector bungs are definitely large.... and in the way. I very much agree. But, without any actual numbers, I can’t give definitive answers, but I can say of all the things I have done, the ported manifolds gave the largest ass dyno delta or before and after, and I put mine on basically at the end, I believe I did them literally last, maybe the shorty headers were after, I am not sure tbh, been to many years. That said, I did email MPT with some logs after and they said all looked as it should, they did tweak it a bit, but they said it’s definitely breathing more as the fuel trims needed adjustments to make up for it. I just checked, MPT told me years back “a good manifold port job can result in 15% more airflow” for what that’s worth. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Welcome to the site. I guess reflecting back now I am not sure what to think of the ported heads actually. Honestly I did them way too soon. I did not have other things done first to get good data. I had long tube headers, x-pipe, catback, CAI, throttle body, a not so great tune, 3.73 gears, driveshaft, LCAs and shocks/struts; but only had one day at the track with 4 runs on the car at that point. So I had the intake and exhaust mods for the heads but didn't have a good tune worked out, was having O2 sensor issues with the long tubes and traction issues. I should have had all that worked before doing the heads. They definitely flow more air, there is no question about that. I still wonder if cams would have unlocked the heads potential more. I can't recall what MPT set my shift points at any more. But I have a Circle D torque converter too. I would guess that a ported lower will give more gains than the upper because of the injector bumps in the lower.
  14. So after all these years, how are the ported intakes? Which parts do we really need for higher RPM power? I read that just the ported lower is needed. I have a 2018 Explorer XLT with the N/A 3.5 which shares the manifolds with the 3.7 at least the 3.7s used on the Lincoln's and Police Interceptors. I read that a few people have used ported intakes on these newer Ford's. Because we are all speed density, there's no longer a need to "dynotune" to correct the fuel trims unless we drastically change the VE model. Think EcoBoost without the turbos. Because I am running AWD traction is not a problem (My SHO and Fusion Sport put down 1.8 60' all day long on worn out street tires). I wonder how much of a gain we'd see with the ported intake? One vendor said the upper intake from Ford was good enough and the bulk of the gains was from the lower manifold. I've never been sold on bigger TBs, but wanted to hear from the V6 Mustang crowd. Are the autos really shifting at 7100 RPM? That's about a few hundred more than what Ford set my Explorer at WOT.
  15. I have a 73mm BBK throttle body for sale 2011 and up 3.7 $320 shipped A brand new roush CAI 2015-2017 3.7 $320 shipped Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
  16. how much money do you have invested in this swap how much money do you have invested in this swap?
  17. Bit the bullet and signed up to a real gym yesterday, woke up at the crack ass of dawn to work out before going to work. It's a small overall gym but they have a kickass powerlifting room with nothing but bars/racks/bumper plates. Actually looking forward to legs day now lol.
  18. Top speed limiter in the ECU perhaps?
  19. Yep, no, that"s my Aussie mix Charlie a service dog I trained.
  20. I have a 2005 Mustang with a 6r80 using a quick 6 control module. When I do WOT I’m stuck in 5th and at 105 mph. Any help?
  21. Amazon has a good price on Pennzoil Ultra Platinum. Hard to beat that price, especially since its delivered. I believe they are clearing it out for another new formula. I did cut the tube coning from the oil drain valve to about 3", just to make filling the gallon water bottles cleaner with race ramps.. Single use gallon water bottles with screw on caps don't leak like the reusable oil collectors you find in the store or online with their plastic threading. The oil drain valve is still working like a charm. 😄
  22. My 14 Cyclone wore 275's sq. on American Racing wheels at $150 a tire Firehawks. May I ask, how much weight savings over the PP wheels the SVE got you? I recently bought SVE's and am lightening 7 lbs. a wheel over my base wheels. I notice the difference too. I need to start a "Go fund me" page to buy the other two tires at $200.00 a pop for 285/35/19's.
  23. Welcome Samuel, I use a 4-way tire tool I store in my pony for punctures. When I bought new wheels I had to buy a "socket adapter" to fit the Special Vehicle Equipment rims that comes with the "package". Just get a 4-way tire tool & keep it under the seat.
  24. I think thats the size of the standart PP front tires on the S550s. They were a little small to me so I went up to 275s instead and they fill out nicely, and are nice and square on the rims, even on the 9" fronts they do not bulge or anything.
  25. I am having trouble get the proper size lug wrench an spare for a 2017 Mustang GT
