I'm cool with decals. Hell, I have a Roush style hood decal myself. That said, I personally think it's lame when people badge their cars as Cobras and the like if they're not. Even if they...

I decided to put the factory airbox back on and upload the factory tune for ****s and giggles. After doing so (which, makes it a little easier to hear what's going on by the way), I...

Tuner issue - Is this bad?

So there was a little miscommunication when I ordered my CAI/Tuner package from AM.

I ordered the Steeda intake and BAMA tunes. I assumed that when they seen what package I had ordered, they...

Oh snap. I finally found the section on their site. They could've made that a little more noticeable. I still love AM though.

Question American Muscle/Bama Tune Question

So I just pulled the trigger on a CAI/Tune package from American Muscle. I went with the BAMA/Steeda combo - can't wait.

Anyway, when I had my '07 GT, I did a CAI/Tune package through Evolution...

Clutch Vibration When Cold

Mornings have just now started to get cold here in Michigan, and I have noticed that my clutch pedal vibrates/pulses as I'm letting it out. Once the car and clutch warms up it goes away.

Thanks for all the great feedback. It will only be an issue for another couple months anyway (until the snow starts flying). Then, after I get her out of storage, I'll just do the CAI with a 93...

That makes sense. I do notice, when running 93, that there tends to be more of a fuel smell to the exhaust right after I start it up. As if it is running a little rich on 93. It just sucks that...

It's probably just me then. Maybe I'll try running a lower grade, and if I don't notice much, I'll just save some money and keep running it.

I intend on doing a CAI/tune after this winter. I...

Question Octane Difference???

I don’t know if this is just me, so I thought I’d ask. It is my understanding that the new 5.0’s are at “full power” on 91 octane, and will automatically adjust to whatever octane is being used. ...
