    E-mail sent Scott!

    Hagerty has jumped the shark.

    Ontario policies are rough. I am with a major insurer who expressly forbid me to add a blower / TT to my Lambo...and I got a letter from them saying so. I would be denied ANY type of coverage should I add any type of major power enhancements to the car...and am also forbidden to put the car on...

    Pulley and crank pulley size

    Oh...lol, no, they just oversized the alt pulley itself to avoid the thing grenading as it's done 4x in the past 8 weeks...and now I'm looking for another solution but need to get the stock crank and alt pulley size. My guess is that this OEM alt casing is junk and it's warping slightly under...

    Diagnostic codes and car won't run

    That was the problem...MAFia was done. I bypassed it and the car started and ran - it choked a bit, I'm guessing due to the multiple times I had started it and unburnt gas sitting there. Drove it a few miles and she's starting and running fine now. Just can't get over 5K RPM now with 820 WHP...

    Pulley and crank pulley size

    Anyone know the alternator pulley and crank pulley size for the 6-rib? I assume when I did my Whipple 4.0 upgrade that didn't change the speed of the 6 rib? I heard the alt pulley is 59mm...

    Diagnostic codes and car won't run

    Hi All, Yesterday, at the car wash, the car wouldn't start after being washed and when I was able to keep her running, once in a few starts, she would run very rough and spew a ton of black smoke Codes I get are: P0720 P0068 P2196 P2198 Wondering if it could be the MAF, or the voltage...

    The 2005/2006 Ford GT Takata Airbag Recall Program

    My Ford dealer refused to come to my home to do the recall and either of my FGT's. I'm calling Ford now to find out why, and if they won't come, why are they not paying the transport to and from the dealer? I'm in Canada. Bad enough they refused to sell me a 2017-2019, at least make good on...

    4th blown alternator

    It's for sure not a load issue here...it's a dead short at high RPM, so no matter how much power we rebuild / rewind to, it won't fix the issue. I am looking in the exhaust area to see about melted cables as I believe that's where the issue is.

    4th blown alternator

    I bought a new OEM from Ford last year as I was seeing a bit of flicker at idle. That one died on me in spring after only a few hundred miles on it, and the bearings were toast...so we didn't think the problem was anything beyond that...but we were wrong. I took it to my shop, who said he felt...

    4th blown alternator

    No it's not a Dyno tiedown, because it has happened in the street on a WOT pull (often in this car ;))...I am going to check the cable near the exhaust...that makes a lot of sense to me too! I'm with the high current short philosophy too... Guess I'm driving the Performante for a few days till...

    4th blown alternator

    My alternator blew for the 4th time in 2 months, last 2 times in the dyno during a pull. We've changed it and even done a rebuild 2x. 1st time we changed it we noticed the bearings were shot, which was on the OEM alternator I got last year, but the last 3 didn't have that issue. There are no...

    OEM Wiper blade replacement

    I got a pair of Michelin 24" blades, but realize that they don't have the airfoils on them, nor is there any way to mount them on there. What have you all been doing to replace them? I can't seem to find them at Ford... Does it matter much?
