project 5.0

Wanting to build up my 95 5.0 but trying to fix my ignition proplem. Maybe someone can help me figure this out. So far changed spark plugs alternator battery the cap and rotor look relatively new. Had my start er checked its good. Anyways sometimes it starts right up like it a 2014 and other times its a ***** like I'm sitting the for ten min with it cranking but won't turn over than i pop the clutch or it decides to turn over on it own. And once its started it drives beautifly . idk how new the wires are or the coil. Thinking maybe the coil but don't wanna waist money if that is not the problem

Ya it could be. I dont know tho. Like its obvisoly a spark prob. Or fuel. But fuel pump kicks on. Just trying to not play find the problem game. U think I should just do new msd ignition but start with coil then try wires etc than if still doesn't fix it then maybe a weak fuel pump or bad fuel filter?

Distributors on these cars are notorious for ****ting the bed. Pull your cap and gander in there, if you see a silvery powder that means the PIP is toast or on the way out. Usually a bad PIP causes issues with the coil as well.

In fender is actually better. I had that same BBK unit and I didn't like it. It was very nice to have the filter in fender but the BBK kit necks down too goddamn small going from the MAF to the TB. Get a JLT and call it a day.

Ya so that didn't fix it. So far new coil, cap, rotor battery, alternator. So guess wires & ICM is next on plate. After that idk. Wish i knew exactly 100% what it was. Maybe the rotor isnt pointing at #1 I had it but for some reason my starts at top left not top right like every other 95 5.0

The pip is the part of the dizzy that fails, has nothing to do with the rotor spinning or not. A new dizzy will have a new pip and therefore fix it... anyway...

Believe i Found the problem its my fuel pump and filter . On Fri switching to a bbk 190 lph pump. Anyways about to get a throttle body what size is good enough. I was looking at 70 mm. Idk what's on there now which I'll check of coarse before ordering. Only has cai cat back soon to be pump and cams right now. After this tb il get headers mid pipe 24 lb fuel injectors jet chip. I figure thats good enough then I can start cobra clone.

Don't get a tb right now wouldn't see much gains if any at all, save the money and use it for another mod. But that is my personnel opinion, I have talked and heard from too many people that is was a waste of money and they didn't feel anything. But don't get me wrong with more mods on your car I would say yes to a tb to compliment your other mods.

It all depends on your goals for the car is. For a street car I would say forget the upgraded fuel injectors no need for them on a pretty much stock motor. Get the exhaust then some gears and maybe a short throw shifter and underdrive pulleys are okay you will see a little gain. I would also look into upgrading your suspension. Scotty will probably jump on this and tell you a little bit more.

I forgot about suspension I need it bad I hit a rock and I feel like I hit a truck lol bounce out ta my seat Hella stiff ya I was thinking about the pulleys and gears so no injectors than? If i go for gears than a chip would be a waist of $ than hu. Ya like i said not going for track but a nice cobra type r clone quick street car. Like u can see from the list not going to crazy.

If your talking about the bama chip from A.M then no the chip is not a waste because it come with lifetime tunes so if you make any changes get another tune and you will be fine. But do some research into those chips, there is a guy on here with a 94 cobra I think and he got one and was a waste from what I heard from him. But look up some reviews and see what you think about it. Cause honestly I was thinking about doing it after some more mods but after what I have heard and nightmares of people screwing up big time on the install.

Ya I might just say screw it iv heard from places its a waist if u get gears in ur car. But thanks for pointing me in a better direction. With next months allowance lol I give myself thinking under drive pulleys or gears but then I would have to wait to following month for shop to install that $$$. Idk what I wanna do first or maybe headers but same issue would have to wait. I saw for gears it hooks up to a 8.8 axle I think or something. Is that what I have cause I saw in the comments the guy had to buy another part cause he didn't have a 8.8 axle or exchange a piece. Lol thing would be a beast with gears and pulleys alone lol

Yea man you should be fine you have the 8.8, the only reason that guy needed another part was because he had a 7.5 rear end which the offered in older mustangs. Or some one swapped out his rear end with something else and he didn't know. I would 100% recommend a shop do the install on the gears but the under drive pulley should be pretty simply to do yourself. Look up a how to vid and see if you can tackle the job.

$150-$300 for the install is really good dude, if you don't want to pay that for a gear install, just sell your Mustang and get a Toyota. Most ppl get quoted double that at least and that's just for the install.

A cel is a check engine light.. If you have bad cats, you could remove them and pick up some power but I noticed you live in Cali so that's is a big no go with your emission laws. Good luck man

Imma get new ones on tuesday which will restore a little performance. Wi5h new 190 lph pump . i wanna get pulleys but might have to get cats if so i can get catted x pipe whixh i wanted to switch to x anways. Morrow il hook up code reader see if it says anything about cat. If not i can always go to smog shop and have them just run it to see if my hc bad if so thats cat.

What code reader are you using that is pulling from an OBD1 car? I just always did the CEL method to pull codes for free. You don't need a new pump unless yours is failing, for a midpipe a BBK with cats is fine or just go offroad if you have no emissions. For O2 sensors don't pay out your anus for ones from a local box store, Rockauto has Densos that work well for $40/ea I believe. You only need two in a 94/95 no matter what anyone tells you. I had more idiots at box stores tell me that I needed "downstream sensors" when I was pricing them out vs the Rockauto ones back in the day. They went to 4 sensors in 96.
