  1. Need Help With Power

    Introductions
    I have recently acquired a 1968 302 engine originally off of a Galixy. It had a 2 barrel intake but i removed that to put a four barrel intake on.

  3. Engine Power Loss at Low Torque

    4.6L Tech
    Hi guys, So I have a 2000 GT standard. My problem recently is that if I was to shift into 2nd gear (or any gear) and I'm sitting at 900-1300 revs, my car starts to "sputter" and jerk if I go hard on the gas. Sputter isn't necessarily the right word, but it suffers at low torque to give me power...
  4. Headers 351W

    Classic Tech
    Hey all, Looking to get a set of headers for my 351w in a 65 mustang. Theres a set of swap mid length headers out there by Hedman that I want. I have read that long tube headers give better mid to high rpm performance and the mid lengths give better low end to mid range power (I spend more...

  9. BMR Adjustable Panhard Bar torque question...

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Hey guys... The question is.... Doesn't 129 lbs of torque seem like a little too much for a panhard bar? I haven't even gotten to 129 lbs yet and the bolt is starting to bend the metal of where it goes through. Anyone who can share their experiences? I'm kinda freaking out to OVER TIGHT IT...

    V6 Tech
    I am having problems with my acceleration, I recently read a thread on this site of a person with the same problem and it was clogged cats.

    It's starting to get cold in Socal (50ish degrees :shiny:) and i've noticed my 01GT isn't pulling as hard as it normally does.. Could it be because of the temperature?

  15. Back Pressure.. Once and for all

    2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    Okay I've seen more than a few posts with people commenting about "back pressure" in exhaust setups and it's affect on low end torque, and I just wanted to clear things up for any confusion. "Back pressure" is not necessary for a 4 stroke engine. Where people get this idea of back pressure...

  20. 1988 Mustang Gt Convertible seems like it should have more power than this

    5.0L Tech
    I bought a 1988 mustang gt convertible and it seems like it is putting out only 75 % of the torque. I remember gt's pulling me back in the seat when accelerated and mine just seems to fall short of the g force. When i spin tires from a take off, i can fully spin 1st then after shifting into 2nd...
