    I just want to make sure I understand this...the difference between the two firing orders is CAM dependent, and the same CRANK work with BOTH firing orders???

    2011 - 2014 Mustang GT Tech
    Hi guys, I've just installed a 2014 engine into my 2011 GT and I think my ECU has a tune on it, only worked it out when it would only run with a big JLT intake and wont run with a stock one. I want to retune the ECU to a tune that I know and trust. Now with that, can I just flash the ECU...

    I have a '94 GT 5.0, and within the past month or so, my mustang has been having starting issues, in the mornings i get in, turn the key and it'll crank and crank and crank and finally it'll turn on.

    4.6L Tech
    I've got a '99 GT with a Windsor in it and I'm pretty sure that I have a bad rod bearing, before I get too far into pulling the Windsor out I was wondering if the crank from a Romeo would work with the Windsor internals. I just read that the Windsor has thicker connecting rods than the Romeo...

  8. Crank Threads Stripped a 1/2", Need Advice

    5.0L Tech
    Little background: 1994 5.0 H/O from a GT in a 1966 Coupe. Long story short is we went to swap the harmonic balancer and the first couple threads were damaged and ended up completely destroying about a 1/2" of the threads in the crank itself. I ordered a replacement bolt from ARP and the plan...

    Classic Tech
    Turn the key on, pump the gas twice, and it usually cranks, but if you miss it that first time, you're screwed. Also has a little trouble cranking when engine's hot. The problem is it sounds a little weak. Battery has been tested and it appears starter and solenoid were changed recently...
