Not sure of the boost level that unit can produce but I would think that the hole for the ACT sensor would be a bit undersized for a bypass valve. Rather than trying to T it off there, I would just...

Get an Arduino board. With some fairly basic code you could handle all of this in software. Grab an engine pulse off one of the injectors, just tap a wire. Run that to an input pin on the arduino....

Wow, thanks for that advice! Maybe I will just leave the wiper nozzles alone and just paint the stripes. How about the trunk lid? I believe that is steel. I know brazing is not the preferred method,...

That's why I don't have an aftermarket hood. Fiberglass hoods weigh more than the aluminum stocker. I want to weld up the wiper nozzle holes and paint my stripes on. I don't have a welder yet and was...

I would find a local Mustang club and attend a meet up. I'm sure the other stang bangers would be glad to examine your new ride. You may get lucky and someone may know the car already.

I added a 12" sub only to my shaker 500 system and I think it sounded great. In 2005 there was no iPod or Aux in so I was forced to eventually upgrade the whole system. Regardless, throw a powered...

Cool I have looking for a spec like this. I found that there is actually a jig that bolts across the lugs which puts the pickup point for the torque wrench directly in the middle. Not having this, I...

Thanks for your feedback on the Spec Stage 3+. I have never experienced clutch chatter before so this is all speculation on my part. I don't think chatter is the problem. The clutch engages smoothly,...
