Well you probably already know that I'm a big fan of the smooth trunk so I think that your car looks great!
What happened to the hood scoop for your car? Did you swap hoods at some point or did you buy it like that?

I really like the wingless look too but it looks funny without more stuff going on with the front of the car.

The '99s and '00s didn't come with the hood scoops other than the 30th anniversary cars. We just have the "notch" instead.

It is a travesty that they didn't adorn the hoods of those cars with a giant piece of plastic with yet more honeycomb on the front!


I'm not a big fan of the scoop but I think that you're right. I considered going scoopless on my other Bullitt because it needed a new hood anyway. I came to the same conclusion as you that it probably looks better with something up front, so I just got another GT hood.

Yeah the honeycomb is pretty retarded. I'm tempted to go with some sort of cowl hood but I'll need to do a lot more work to pull off that sort of look. If I could get my hands on a Mach 1 hood and shaker then I would hop all over it.

I am seriously considering it for my big spring time purchase. I have done a couple Google searches and found a few pics of sn95s with them. I believe they were on the LMR website or possibly SVE customer pics. I liked the way they looked. I would get 18s staggered and try to sell my staggered bullit set to offset the cost some. I think the pics I found look good, I'm on H&R super sports but would Love to get it a little lower in the front with that wheel set up if I did it.

JDF do you think the steeda ball joints would be good to get my front a little lower? I believe they give you about 1/2" and Maybe leave out the isolators Also?

Hmm I might need to check out their customer pictures again cause now I'm curious. Selling my FR500s was how I managed to afford these.

I've heard that the Steed a ball joint will drop it, but I've never installed a set self so I can't say for sure. But I can do know that taking the iso's out will drop it a little. Before spending the money on anything I would try removing those first and then decide if you want to go lower or not.

Yeah I would be going with the silver or a gunmetal if they make that finish (can't remember). My car is laser red metallic so not too far off from the one pictured. I was leaning towards the FR500s but I think those look best on new edges. The ones in the pic here aren't staggered either I don't think.

You're good man, it's not like I'm trying to make any informational posts right now. I don't think they make a gunmetal color, at least as far as I have seen. FR500s are always a safe route to take

Yeah it may be some other wheel I'm thinking of, I have a habit of looking at quite a few, lol.

Who doesn't do that though? I probably looked at 5 different set of wheels before I settled on these

The SVE drifts only come in silver or black. I might be painting mine white soon though. Click image for larger version

Maybe you need to go with a little colder spark plug. I'm using Autolite 104's. They are copper core too. They seemed to work much better when I was running a tune.

Hmm I might have to look into that, I really need to do another set of spark plugs. I think these ones are 3 years old.

Haha yeah the altitude is not helping, and the added weight of my IRS is making it worse. I have another thread in the Track section documenting my drag racing exploits

Well the day I've been dreading for the past year has arrived... I took my car in for an emissions test. I had swapped mid-pipes about 2 weeks ago and was driving around to make sure the CEL didn't pop up. Besides the catback hitting the chassis I was feeling good about it. Took it in today to see how she did... and failed miserably. CO readings are about double what they should be, which means I've got some unburnt fuel going out the tailpipes. The readings are so bad that they aren't even on the charts. So now comes the fun part. I ordered an intake manifold gasket due to that leaking some coolant and also because I'm a little suspicious that it's been leaking air as well, I get a hissing sound (like air leaking) from the engine compartment. I also ordered some fuel injector o-rings in order to swap back to the 19lb injectors, along with sending in a tune request to Bama to get a stock style tune. After that it's going back in for a retest. If that fails then it's getting dropped off at a Ford dealer. Depending on what they say is wrong then I'll have to go from there.

Needless to say I'm pretty frustrated with the car and it hasn't been helping the thought that's been floating around in the back of my mind about selling it or trading it in on something else

I don't think that any of the things that you mentioned will solve your problem. Nevertheless, if they need to be fixed... Fix them!

1. The most overlooked cause of a rich fuel mixture is the air cleaner. If it hasn't been cleaned or replaced in a while, do it. Clean the MAF while you're at it.
2. Faulty Oxygen Sensor. It will usually throw a code but maybe not if it is just getting weak. I like to replace them about every 100k or so, just like any of the tune-up parts.
3. Defective Throttle Position Sensor. If it is failing, it will confuse the PCM into enriching the mixture. Again, you would expect a code but stranger things have happened... Right? Lol.
4. Defective Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. If the PCM is unable to determine the engines accurate temperature, it will not adjust fuel delivery properly, resulting in an overly rich mixture and high CO levels. Whenever one of these sensors fail, the PCM prefers to add more fuel as a safeguard to prevent the combustion chamber temperatures from reaching too high of a temperature.

I remember that your car has a slight miss. Has that gotten any better or worse?
I wonder if this could be related to that somehow?
Bad COP? Defective Fuel Injector?

I'm thinking that miss has something to do with it. I had thought it got better, but it's looking like it hasn't. As far as everything you've listed:
1. Air filter is definitely dirty and hasn't been cleaned in a while. MAF sensor was cleaned some time last year
2. Front oxygen sensors are about a year old, rears are turned off via my tune
3. Will look into it. Car hasn't had a CEL in probably 2 years
4. Will look into it

I'm beginning to suspect that the spark plug I blew the tip off of possibly did some major engine damage and is causing the issue somehow. But any help I can get will be greatly appreciated.

Yes. Definitely pull the plug from that cylinder and have a look at it. As a matter of fact, it may not be a bad idea to look at them all and see if there are any that are a different color than the rest of them (darker). That could give you a good indication if this CO problem is being caused by a certain cylinder (or cylinders), or if it is a fuel delivery problem that is caused by one of the sensors.

A thought I've been having is would loss of compression cause a cylinder to not burn all the fuel?

It absolutely can cause a "dead cylinder".
It is pretty noticeable when it gets to that point though.
If you suspect that may be the problem, then do a compression test while the plugs are out. It's a good idea to check the compression, in any case. It will, hopefully, eliminate that as a possible cause.
