    Good afternoon, I recently bought a 2007 mustang gt with about 103k miles. Didn’t bother getting a carfax at the time because it was a really cheap car but later on found someone on eBay doing them for 10 dollars so figured why not lol. Well I noticed it says “short block replaced” on the...

Like I'd press the gas and it wouldn't accelerate. It eventually got so bad i had to stop driving . the car would stall on...

    Hi Everyone, I have a 2011 Mustang 5.0 that was ordered new and delivered in Fall of 2010. It's probably part of the first batch off the line. As of right now, every suspension component in the car has swapped out with the exception of the front lower control arm. I know that the 2011 models...

    Firstly, has anyone had a lot of experience dealing with the first generations of the MT82 since they released in 2011? I am curious if mine being a 2012 model would be a first generation MT82 with all of its issues and quirks, or a second generation? I was just reading up on this transmisison...

    So I didn't like how my s197 can factory with LED Tailights but HID headlights and incandescence bulbs for everything else, so I upgraded all the incandescence bulbs to LED. Last week I replaced all the 194's with LED, Marker Lights & map lights and there was no problems. Yesterday I replaced...

    Alright I have been chasing the cause of this noise since I got the car 5 years ago. The noise started showing up when I would be turning right with the car in 3rd gear at about 1800rpm. If I were to push the clutch in, the noise would go away. If I revved the engine to ~1800 rpm in neutral...

    I have a 2013 GT with GT500 axlebacks, and recently Ive had my resonators removed at a local shop and I was not a fan of the new sound. The idle sounds super quiet and at high RPM the exhaust has a very metallic, tinny sound, almost like a rattling tin can. I took a look at where the resonator...

    Hi all, I have an '07 v6 Premium automatic with 64,000 miles. I have noticed that, after a drive, the air around the outside of the car is hotter than the ambient air. This has been the case for the 16 months I've owned the car. Even on a hot day, I can feel a lot of heat when I step out of the...

    Hi all, My '07 v6 has a light graphite interior, and I was thinking of somehow dressing up the seatbacks with pony decals. I don't like seat covers, so they're out. Has anyone tried this or other seat dress up ideas? How long will it take for my back to rub the decal off the seatback? Any and...

    Has any one ever heard of doing the Romeo bottom end swap but keeping the 3 valve heads? I ask because I have a 4.6 block pulled from a 2006 police interceptor and my current aluminum block has too many miles on it to do the power build I want. I also want to stay with the 3 valve heads so I...
