    Ford GT's Getting Flagged by CARB!

    This is not legal advice since I'm not an attorney or licensed attorney in any state of the USA :) You avoid the late fees. After you complete your smog test a sticker will be sent to you. I used to be within 10 days, but I'm still waiting. Technically you can't let your tires touch the public...

    Ford GT's Getting Flagged by CARB!

    Interesting BAD news! Most cars should be able to run and pass with a stock tune installed even with a pulley or Whipple. However when you go to a ref station your car is going to get a complete visual inspection for any non-CARB approved parts that may effect emissions. Eg. if the tech...

    changing the battery

    To be safe I would get another 12v lead acid battery and fuse it with 10 amps and plug it into the accessory port. The fuse may be redundant as the accessory port has one as well. This will protect you from things lights coming on by design or accident. If I remember correctly the quiescent...

    Ti accessories

    Very nice and especially with the hex key in the middle. I know that titanium is very light it's not as light as aluminum or plastic so it's going to throw the delicate balance of your fine carbon fiber Wheels out of kilter. :lol

If so you have to loosen some of the bolts and remove the ones near the fender well and it bends down a little while you remove the fender liner. To remove the fender liner after you remove all the push pins and screws you kind of...

    Ford GT back up camera install and photos

    Randy when I replaced my mirror I installed the dome light from Ford's part bin. Shadow man was the first to do this and I asked him for the part numbers forgot what they are. I believe I posted the installation and Shadowman did as well but I'm not sure if they're still on the Forum anymore...

    Oil Pump Belt Alternatives

    Interesting observation that the Continental belt is stiffer then the Motorcraft. Stiffer maybe stronger but not necessarily better. As I suspect being stiffer it will generate more heat as being flexed around the pulleys. So I wonder if Continental can give an RPM range for their belt. A belt...

    What can you do with a 69 Mach 1 and some 2nd gen Ford GT parts

    I love the looks of that Mach 1 and now it has more power and a better weight balance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1WjLis7Yyw Y1WjLis7Yyw

    MAF value need

    The MAF value is should be pretty close the the theoretical one. Find the grams per liter if air at STP, scale by the expected boost and multiply by the engine's intake displacement at the RPM in question halving it because of a 4 stoke engine. One same caveat I don't recall if the numbers are...

    For all those wondering "will I fit"?

    Steve should open the door and check the gross vehicle weight I think you might have went over it :-) I remember bony mentioning that to me on the 05 s and 06. I've been over the weight limit on my 05 a few times with the passenger.

    Exotic Tools: German, Swiss, French ?

    Soroush I didn't know you lost your black car (the NOS one). Are you down to only the blue one from CA? Your garage looks so organized and clean it makes most dental offices look bad.
