    Hello. I am looking to replace the heads and intake on a 1998 3.8 and I know the 99 3.8 Had a larger throttle body, the split port intake and better flowing cylinder heads. Aside from cabling and sensors, are there any major issues as far as bolt pattern, water passages, pushrod length/lift that...

    I've been contemplating supercharging my 3.8 split port and the general consensus is SSM adapter plate and m112 from 03/04 cobra. I've been wondering why an m90 won't work on a split port but an m112 will. I understand that neither will bolt straight up, but does the m90 not work with an adapter...

    I have a 1998 v6 5 speed coupe that has been hard starting lately. The first start of the day it always seems like it has to crank for 2 or 3 times longer than normal, but it always starts. if I go to the store, and come back out an hour or 2 later it starts right up. Im thinking fuel pump check...

    I have searched high and low and all I get is conflicting data and my Chilton’s manual is worthless (in this and many other things). I’m finding 40-60 psi hot @ 2500 rpm’s, 40-60 psi @ 2000 rpm’s, 40 + @ 2500 rpm’s, etc. While all of these should be sufficient oil pressure for the engine, from a...

    Ive got a 98 3.8 with a cyl 6 misfire and left bank to lean. The cars ODO stopped at 168k but I know It probably has over 200k on it. I replaced the intake gasket and injectors with no problems and after I got it back together I have had a dead miss since. I figured I probably screwed up the...

    Hey everyone, thanks for your input on my first thread on how to get a more aggressive sound for a V6 Mustang. After watching many videos on YouTube and looking through the website, I've decided to go with an o/r h-pipe and thrush welded mufflers. Main reason why I'm getting thrush mufflers is...

    Hey guys, Im having one problem after another with my 99 v6. The biggest thing was my head gasket going with a vengeance during christmas last year. (One month ago). For several reasons, I chose to go with a complete engine rebuild for $3000 CDN. Which is obviously pricey, but comes with a 3...

    I am having a problem with my 94 3.8... The #6 injector blows fuel for a couple seconds as soon as you turn the key on then stops. Then as soon as you crank it, the injector blows wide open, the other injectors are fine only #6 is acting up. I have played musical chairs with the injectors and...
