btw jsimmons your blog is something I hit weekly. for me you truly are an inspiration.

but note I said cost prohibitive for some. obviously, youre the last guy on the planet that applies to.

but lets say, it costs 4 grand for someone to tranny swap (im pulling a number out of my ass there so keep that in mind).

for some 2 grand is the most they'll be able to come up in in a year or 2 if they live paycheck to paycheck. that just seems impossible to them now.

but 2 grand is a mighty fine down payment with a trade in if you aren't upside down too bad. that's all I meant by that.

I think it would be closer to $5k (if we're talking new parts). You could cut that in half if you go to a salvage yard or buy off craigslist.

I've looked and looked, but I can't find the pedal assembly (you need to swap out your auto pedals for manual pedals) on a Ford parts website, so I think the only place to get it is a salvage yard. That's the only part I can't find a new-in-box price for.

Update: BUT WAIT! I decided to give the part number search another shot, and actually found it! The pedal assembly part number is CR3Z2455A, and it fits 2011-2013 Mustangs. It costs $127 from Tousley Ford. You probably also have to get a wiring harness to make it work, but I don't have that part number (yet).

this is something I was concerned about and have constantly asked about on here.

this isn't my first rodeo tuning cars. generally when someone is making way more power than they should on any car, first thing to check is the afr's. I wouldn't be surprised the afr's are a bit scary and potentially dangerous on a few of these tunes.

I ordered an mpt tune last night but I'll be watching the afr very closely. I do believe it makes more power just not convinced its safe.

Hi guys. New mustang owner here. I don't understand the concern with the afr. I was always under the assumption that 14.7:1 is ideal.

my point is that i think it should be one of the things openly discussed. people throw tunes on around here as if theres no risk involved.

im not saying its risky. but i think we should be the measuring stick that separates good tunes from bad. not just in power or 1/4 mile times, but also, how safe those tunes are.

I think we should be rewarding the businesses that make good power safer than their competition.

thats all, my posts are intended to raise awareness more than anything else.

14.7:1 is ideal for burning the fuel efficiently but is dangerously lean under high load.

The AFR shown is max, I paused the video where you can still see the AFR graph. It starts around 14.7:1 then drops down out of sight, but it's below 13:1.

14.5 or so is fine for cruising. As long as afr drops at wot, you're okay.

I understand the concern with exactly what cerebrix is trying to say here, and while I agree with him, I also say go where the wind takes you with one thing to consider:

* Whatever mod you put into your car, you lose the value of. The only exception to that is if you take the time to uninstall it and put the OE parts back on.


We all start out putting little bits into it to get more fun out of it, without realizing the cost because we love the car so much. It's our passion and our fun time!

For as fast as the select shift shifts, I wouldn't worry too much about needing a manual down the road. The older autos I would, but not the newer dual clutch autos that shift lightning quick.

Wow, those numbers are impressive for just a CAI, shorties, DS, and a 92 MPT Tune on an AUTO. Really considering going MPT when I buy my tuner for this reason + mine is a manual.
