I think they say to do that because that way you don't necessarily have to redo the entire timing setup. You could just remove the head, and reset the timing later, but generally you have to remove...

I will say too, I'm very impressed with the reduction in drone with this FRPP Touring axle back- it was quieter than the Edelbrocks so I switched to an off road H pipe. It sounds awesome outside the...

Just because it's black doesn't mean anything...that just happens from contaminates that get into the oil, black is a much better color than brown or any other color because that generally means...

Yours may be different but after I put in my cams, my chambered Edelbrock axle back I used to have was just plain obnoxious. It sounded good but there was tons of drone and at idle it was like you...

Probably the most important question is, what's your budget? There are header/midpipe combinations out there from $400 to $1200 and everything in between.

Tie rods tend to do that on at least one side, often both...really I think that's just due to the movement allowed by the inner tie rods, I don't think it necessarily points to a problem.

My Cushman Stage 1's are like that too. A little fussy for the first 5-10 minutes you drive and fine after that. It does feel a little "soft" below 2000 RPM but I think that's more from the charge...

Especially the older it gets.

I had an '87 Turbo Coupe I bought for $1250 in 2003. I put tons of work into that car, mild engine build, new clutch, subframe connectors, etc. All told I probably...

I thought all the Mustangs came with that stuff on the doors regardless of seat material? Seems like all the used door panels I see online have it.
