    I have a 2012 Roush supercharged 5.0 with the 6r80 automatic in it. I've noticed for a while now that my transmission has been feeling a bit sloppy during shifts; putting it into gear, and in general just not living up to my expectations. I've only got 55K on the car but the fact that it's...

    I've never restored a car before so I have some questions when welding in new floor pans. What thickness of metal should I use and where can I buy it at? I have floor pans already they just have surface rust and need cleaned up. What are the areas called in pictures #3 and #4 that the leaf...

    Hey everyone, I'm beyond frustrated. Close to towing her to the shop. I have spark, I have fuel, cylinder 1 and 5 (easy finger test!) have compression. Back story. She has been starting and running fine since I got her about a year ago. I take her out on the weekends. So, I drove it about 10...

    This may seem dumb, but I have a 91, 5.0 in a classic. I'm using the 91 serpentine belt system, so the water pump turns counter clockwise. QUESTION: Coolant going to the heater core: Does the coolant flow from the pump outlet toward the heater? OR does the coolant flow from the intake manifold...

    I have a 2013 mustang with brembo brake package. I need new tires but want them to be wider. I decided I'm going to go michelin pilot super sport tires. I was just curious about size. I have 2 options 275/35/19 tire or a 285/35/19 tire in the super sports. I am just afraid the 285 will rub up...

    Hey guys, as of a few days ago, I own the fastest car in my school, a 2011 5.0. Once I get some more money saved up, I want to start modifying it, and I figured the best place to start is the exhaust. The stock exhaust is already loud enough to scare a few freshman, so my first question is: do...

    So a buddy of mine has a 302 from a 1996 f150, he pulled it expecting to build it up, unlike him I posses the skills and resources to do so, he offered it to me for 50$ the block pistons crankshaft oil pan and torque converter. I know it's a good deal, but what I really want to know is can I...

    So, my 5.0 seems to be having difficulty starting the past couple of days. No issues with start-up until now. Yesterday I noticed that starting the car seemed to take 1-2 seconds longer than usual and the gauges all bounce/tick at the bottom for 3-4 seconds while the gauge lights flicker. After...

    I'm new to this site and was wondering if anybody had some suggestions as to what type of heads i should pick up for my 1994 Mustang 5.0. I just ran a 12.69 @ 110 with a 1.81 60 foot. I have a cobra intake, e303 cam, cai, 70mm throttle body, bbk shorty headers, straight pipes, 3.73 gears, and a...

    Hey guys, I'm trying to figure out what kind of heads are on my 5.0 The only thing I've got to go on is the engraved number "KX07A0202". The heads don't have anything else engraved or stamped. I have tried calling jegs, summit, edelbrock, trickflow and pro comp and none of them could tell me...

    Hey guys I recently bought a 1964 1/2 mustang coupe with a 1987 302 (E7TE). I have been getting blow by coming from the valve covers as well as lots of smoke from the tailpipe especially as the engine warms up. Before purchasing the car I performed a pressure test and I got 170 psi for all...

    Hi. I just bought a 95 GTS for 1k about a week ago and was wondering if I did a full GT-40 swap heads and intake what kind of realistic HP I could possibly see. My car is completely stock and I see a lot of gt40 explorers in my local junkyards.They have half sales like crazy and i can walk away...

    I can't decide whether to do the engine bay on my 2012 GT in chrome or carbon fiber. Would like to see pics of the coyote engine dressed up in both and thoughts and opinions on both options thanks

    So I have a bit of a problem, just bought a mustang and I discovered my amber lights and gauges have no light. Discovered fuse #4 was blown, so I replaced it. Hit my headlight switch and it blew again, but my headlights still worked. Tested for power and got nothing. I do have 5 autometer...
