  1. Yeah it's 19x9.5. It's not a big deal because all I do is drive it on the road it's not like I need the grip. Next time I'm going to bump up the tire size.
  2. Took forever but the 19 inch SVE wheels are finally on my car. Completely changed the look of the car and I have gotten a lot of compliments on them already. The mechanic I went to recommend 255/40/19 so that's what we went with because my dad payed for the tires so I didn't have much say in it. I think it was too small though, there definitely is a little lip between the wheel rim and tire.
  3. It's just a shame there's not much else you can do to these engines. It's a solid platform that never saw it's full potential.
  4. Wonder if supersixmotorsports still does the 4.0 stroker kit. Maybe if I'm going to have to replace the engine then why not do something to it first?
  5. I just checked and I couldn't see any bubbles although I could only get soapy water on the top of the headers not the bottom. Plus I only audibly hear the knocking after a little bit of stress, not at start up so that makes me think it's not an exhaust leak. I believe the spark plugs are still original so I probably should get them replaced since I'm at 107k miles now.
  6. That's actually pretty good. Don't Coyotes go for like 5k?
  7. That's just what I've heard from reading on the internet. I only hear it at idle but then again that's the only time my exhaust doesn't cover up the sound. I put premium in yesterday and it seems to have helped. Doesn't make much since though because it's on the stock tune right now so there shouldn't be any knocking period. Anyone know how much a new cyclone engine costs? Just curious for the future.. lol
  8. Not too sure, I'm pretty it wasn't a ford performance cover so probably because it was some cheap aftermarket part?
  9. So I've noticed that my engine starts to knock when I give it some beans, especially on a hot day. It does say a little knocking is normal in the manual but if I can hear it i think thats too much. The temps here are reaching over 100 degrees mid day so hopefully it's because it's hot and not because my engine is fucked. In the mean time I'm just going to run premium.
  10. So the 3.73 gears are ordered. Lmr has everything 10% off for fourth of July. Now I just need to schedule the install.
  11. Yeah no it's not catastrophic failure but just another thing that'll need to be fixed.
  12. He was saying rust on the inside was making it bulge. He didn't think it looked very sturdy and recommended I look for a stronger aftermarket one. This is the quick picture I took while it was up on the lift. It's just cracking around the bolts with a very slight bulge.
  13. So the guy finished the new driveshaft and it was barely too long. Luckily he was able to go back and cut it down to size so it's in the car now and I definitely can feel a difference with the new ds. It's a lot easier to rev up now. The bad news though is that the mechanic noticed that the transmission crossmember is cracked and will need to be replaced in the near future. Gotta love rust.
  14. So I removed the driveshaft today and while it was up on the lift we found the rear right brake caliper was leaking brake fluid. So it's getting a new brake caliper tomorrow while it's not driving. That makes two calipers replaced in just under a year.
