I've seen this done in a few magazines and TV shows, not sure if it's as easy as they make it out to be. Seems like the Ford Racing 5.0L DOHC Aluminator Supercharger-Ready Crate Engines M-6007-A50SC...

Does your car still vibrate at these speed in neutral? With the OD button off? btw, the "waves" are usually a result of 2 sounds combining.

This might just be a tire out of balance, out of round,...

Could be carbon, I would expect that to throw a code. I'm wondering if it's still throwing a code, but your code reader is missing it, is this your code reader or are you going to Autozone or NAPA?...

Looks like a pretty good plan to me. Let us know how it sounds and if you think you'll upgrade the sub woofers later.

That's pretty crazy! I heard about the Ford 429 Hemi but never seen one. If he ran this engine in a Nascar, he can probably make it work in a 2005 GT. What will he use for a Transmission? What does...

Sounds to me like a head gasket-which should be under $1,000. It is possible that there is severe damage to the engine, it's hard to second guess a mechanic that is there looking at it.

This is totally impossible! You cannot get 8.5 V RMS from 12VDC ( or 14.8 VDC). The max Peak to Peak voltage at the speakers with no losses would be 14.8 V AC, RMS = PP /2 *.67=4.958. (This crap...

One major difference, you are going to be doing a lot of shifting-the 3.7 has very little power under 3500 RPM. I notice it the most when I'm on the freeway and have to drop down a few gears in a...

My math says the total power in peak Watts is 190W, or 128 watts RMS. I think my shaker 500 (2012) is 500w Peak. Each channel for yours is about 24w Peak, there are 8 "channels". Each door sub uses 2...

Thanks for the post!
Mine are wearing out and I was wondering how tough it would be to replace them. I have 63K miles on it, no one else has even opened the hood. This looks like a pretty easy task.
