    5.0L Tech
    Hey guys, I just got my 5.0 running again but it idles at a very high and loud (open headers still) 4000 rpms. I've started it 4 or 5 times for anywhere from 5 to 25 seconds each and no change at all. I figured it was just the computer adjusting, but it's not adjusting so far. Any thoughts...
  5. 2.3 turbo swap, fuel pump relay rapid clicking, won't stay running

    2.3L Tech
    This is gonna be tricky so I'll be thorough. I recently swapped the engine, transmisson, rear end, and eec from a 1988 thunderbird turbo coupe (2.3) into my mustang lx. Before the swap I had one known issue. The thunderbird, warm or cold, would rev real high on start up. This could be as high...

    I have a 2000 GT with 155,xxx miles and a manual tranny. I replaced the IAC about 3 months ago because it was causing me some noises.

    4.6L Talk
    So, I've been doing some quarter miles lately (maybe like four times), an I've notice that my RPM's go to just below redline. I want to make sure that this won't do any massive damage to my car. I just got my manifold replaced about a month ago, and someone told me the reason it cracked may have...
  10. 1966 Mustang High Performance Emblem

    Classic Talk
    Was the "high performance" emblem under the "289" emblem original? I don't think it is because when we bought the car we got all of the original parts and there are only "289" emblems with no "high performance" emblems.:?::alittlefeedback:
