  1. Did another, no photoshop this time, just lightroom. FX1_9033 by David, on Flickr Changed the sky a bit FX1_9033_1 by David, on Flickr
  2. The only two I have edited from Mammoth so far... Both have a lot of photoshop in them.... Lake had a large boat on the left side against the dock, and the dog had a person bent over behind it and a building on the left.... lol FX1_8950-Edit by David, on Flickr FX1_8926-Edit_no_building by David, on Flickr
  3. That seems like someone just went ham on an impact tightening those bolts. I can’t see the aluminum just giving out and the trans forcing the crossmember through the bolts... there is only maybe 1-200 lbs on those bolts there. The majority of the weight is held by the bell housing and the motor. If you loosen those bolts and let the trans hang, you can push it up with your hands. I sorta doubt that just “happened”. O well. The one I knew broke was sheared since it slammed into a rock. It www cracked front to rear. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The trans cross member I’m fairly certain is aluminum..... also wtf, that thing is beefy. Someone had to have taken a rock to it on the freeway to crack it I would think. I do know someone who cracked theirs in a spirited canyon run. Probs hit it going at least 45. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Ouch. That blows. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Assuming they didn’t totally change the exhaust, there is a slip fitting about 1/3 to 1/2 the way back, you just loosen that and the flange to the mufflers, slide the pipes back and out of the slip fitting and they will hang there giving you room to drop and install the DS.

  7. Clocking means you have to rotate it to find it’s happy place. By this we mean undo the bolts, and spin the shaft by one bolt hole and retighten. Do this till you get the least vibrations. I have had mine on and off many times without paying attention to clicking, and it’s made no difference. In my head, it’s balanced already. So it theoretically shouldn’t make any difference what orientation it’s installed in. That said, it wouldn’t surprise me if you could remove some minor vibrations via clocking it, but if there was ever a serious vibration I would think there is an actual issue somewhere.

  8. Don’t install after market parts... lol. That’s a one off policy. You can’t blame them for it, but it also isn’t “a standard thing”. That’s to bad... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. They want to recoup the money they won’t make by charging you for parts... lol. I hate that shit. I mostly hate everyone tho. I have had no luck with anyone, except the guy who has been helping me with brake setup. Hard to find shops/folks who are worth while ;(. I still don’t know who to believe about what happened to my clutch. The guy who previously did my diff for a steal, and did a good job of it at that who pointed the finger at the last guy and a bad clutch instal even though when I dropped the trans two weeks later I found a bunch of loose bell housing bolts, or if it was a bad clutch job that did it. But when I let the guy who did the clutch know just as a friendly heads up, and I was trippy super nice about he, he turned around and said we never work on v6’s you got the wrong guy, to which I sent him pix of my car in his shop. He never replied.... or when the dealer fucked up a clutch instal (sorta not their fault, but they shoulda known it was no bueno when they test drove it), or when my dad took his 5.0 in for an AC job and had to tow it out of the dealer cuz they fucked up the harmonic balancer and couldn’t fix it. There is more, I just don’t remember them all anymore lol. TLDR; everyone sucks. That’s my experience ;(. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Wow, that’s a bit ridiculous imo. DS install should theoretically be free... already doing a diff, cars on the lift. It’s like 14 screws, out with the old, in with the new. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. How many miles on the car? As far as I can tell mine with ~65k still feels fine. I think they typically should last a while, ~100k maybe? I don’t really know tbh. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Hmm. Well that’s crappy. There are plenty of places to do it, just have to find one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I don't know, I picked it up and it was impressively light.

  15. Right. But I mean even personally, and friends I know, all like that motor in that car. And we all also hate it in the mustang. Lol. It’s a good motor, it just doesn’t belong on the mustang platform. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
