RE: Follow-up question on sound deadening material for Borla drone ....

Resonators don't cost you HP becasue they don't impede the flow of exhaust.

OEM type mufflers (well, the older style ones) and cats cost you HP because these things stick out into the flow area...

RE: Convince me of D-Specs and other parts.

No, but they are damn nice!



Quite a bit, though it depends on how you choose to adjust them. In addition to better valving, the D-specs are adjustable, so you can optimize your setup for...

RE: Hyperpac Trouble

That would definatley help, but it is still a canned tune.

What you really want is a custom-written tune specifically for your car and your exact set of mods.

The same thing happens with...

RE: Horsepower Gains from Smaller Tires?

There is no appreciable difference between the two for gearing.

However, the 18" wheel-tire combo is slightly heaver and it also has higher rotational inertia not just from the weight but...

I am running the powerhouse.

RE: Larger Rims Decrease PErformance???

1. Speedo error: Only the outside diameter of the tire affects your "gearing" and speedo error. Rim size (16, 17, 18, 19, 20, etc.) has nothing to do with this.

2. Larger rims are worse for...

RE: Install time on LCA's and Uca's?

Good advice.

The only thing I'd add is be sure to loctite all of the fasteners as you put them back together. Don't forget the jam nuts on your adjuster(s) too.

RE: What Driveshaft?

A few things to think about:

The same fact you state in (1) also means that the shaft is weaker than a 4" shaft. The larger the diameter of a tube the more torsional stiffness it has, and the...

Androz is right on.

Instant Center is a pretty complicated subject. Google for it and you will find much better information than I could write down. But simply put, instant center adjustments...

RE: Install time on LCA's and Uca's?

The adjustments on the LCAs themselves and the Relocation brackets are two totally different things.

Adjustable LCAs are for adjusting pinion angle.

LCA Relocation brackets are for...

RE: New Clutch and Flywheel?

A couple of things to think about:

1) ALL aluminum flywheels have a replaceable friction surface...so this is no different than other brands.
2) Smaller + higher pressure isn't necissarily...

RE: Horsepower Gains from Smaller Tires?

Exactly!

Changing your tires to ones with a different outside diameter (not to be confused with the wheel's diameter) has the same effect as changing your gears. Smaller OD tires are equivalent...

RE: Will this be ok on my stock suspension

If you just want your car to be level, then don't touch the front at all. Just get the Roush springs for the rear only. That drops the rear and gets it level.

Pretty much any lowering is going...

RE: Good place to get JBA long tubes, and H-pipe from

A lot of places carry that setup. Try the forum sponsors: Lethal Performance, LMP, and so on. Also check the big guys like Summit racing and Jeg's.

RE: Is this Possible?

Are they talking about RWHP or crank HP?

I am guessing it's crank HP, in which case there is nothing at all weird about this at all. The FAST is just a tuner, no different than the Predator or...

RE: Will this be ok on my stock suspension

The sportlines are a VERY low drop. In my opinion it is too low for practicality.

But if you like the height that is all that matters, but be aware that when you lower the car, especially that...

RE: boost a pump or ford gt dual setup??

I personally do not like dual-pump setups. The reason is that if one pump were to fail for some reason, then your engine is now running on just one pump...and it is very easy for you to run...

Of course, the exact performance would vary depending on how much HP you were pushing out of the blower, but I wouldguess about 5-10 HP or so could be gained above the stock exhaust with a good set...

RE: torque specs on LCAs?

129 ft-lb is from the Ford service manual. That is the spec that I have been using the whole time (including on BMR LCAs.).

RE: Changing Exhaust Lost in Low end torque

I belive that on a GT500 for sure. The bigger engine and the supercharger demands a lot more exhaust flow than a naturally aspirated stock GT.
