To an extent, yes. I've driven most forms of new edge cars and they're all like this. Remember, Ford redesigned these cars (specifically the interior in '94) around the same fox chassis which dates...

Also, regarding the stock transmission mount is it supposed to be rather soft and pliable? When I pulled my original out I'm able to wiggle it with my bare hands. There are no breaks or tears in it...

I'm thinking should be half that, including new ring & pinion.

Unless all those shops around you are booked, extremely busy doing rears and can get away with charging that much, I'd look...

The exhaust he's looking at is a used GT catback he found on craigs which has Flows welded on and stated that he's looking to have a shop install as he's limited with tools and mech. skill. It's not...

In the end it's your call. It could be a toss up, depending how much a shop will charge you to install that GT catback. You have to keep in mind that this is also a used exhaust system and those...

I think either way you're not going to notice a performance gain. People tend to automatically think they do because the car sounds more aggressive/louder. Personally I think even the direct bolt...

None of the 99-04 V6 came with one, you can run any rear sway off a fox, SN95, new edge GT, etc. They were different diameters depending on the year and trim. You just need to also get the...

Oversized Oil Drain Plug Bolts

Anyone have any success with these self tapping oversized bolts? The threads in the oil pan are messed up from previous owner or previous place that did oil changes on my car. It's a 2000.

You should be able to find a GT version for around the same price, privately owned. Keep in mind the trade in value for a 'good/excellent' condition 99-04 V6 is around 1800, and that's optimistic.

To be honest, I haven't noticed anything different with how the car runs. Therefore I think the airbox was still sealing fine. Without that seal around the screen, the last line of defense from...

Did a quick search of Ford's parts catalogue, and it appears they list what they call the MAF o-ring or gasket, but it's $83.00!

My 2000 has the ones with with the small bumpers like the 2nd photo.

I assume Ford de-contented them down the production run?

One less rattle for you to worry about at least.

I'm afraid I've run probably 3 bottles of injector cleaner through the car in the course of 8k miles (2x Techron, 1 Regane). I don't drive it much other than just weekends since I walk to work.
