July I bought a bama tune and an o/r x for my car but didn't change the donut gasket between headers and mid pipe bc it didn't come with one. One of the bungs was stripped on the...

    I went to the drag strip this last weekend with my 3.73s and posi and better tires hoping for 14s, but was extremely disappointed. Last season I ran a best of 15.02 with 15.2s consistently throughout multiple visits with an open dif, 3.31s, and literally the factory tires. I cut almost a...
  4. Are these cars really this slow?!

    V6 Talk
    Performance question... So, since buying my '02 Mustang V6 auto, I've been quite surprised at how slow the car feels. I really and truly have felt that my little '00 Nissan Altima 2.4l 4 cylinder (5 speed) was a faster car. Out of curiosity, I decided to get a rough idea of what this car could...

    5.0L Tech
    I will be back in the states for R&R in a week! I also plan on working on my 1994 conv auto 5.0. Last time I drove it, I found something to be terrably wrong. I would hit the gas from a stop and accelerate very slowly. As the rpms rise they rise quicker and quicker but the car just slowly...
  9. Slow Dropping / Hanging RPM

    V6 Tech
    Hello, I've got a little bit of an annoying problem with my 2000 mustang. I have a 5-speed and between shifts it would either jump UP to 3000 RPM or drop down and stay at 3000 RPM. I recently changed the oil and for some reason it helped it a little. Now it drops most of the time but it drops...
