Yeah the 17x9 Termi rims are nice too and 17s are much cheaper when you are going to rip them up at the track.

The thing is I know I won't be sticking with these cobra brakes forever. When I upgrade I'll be going with a 14" set up. So 17s are a no-go

Then you may want to look for the 00R wheels... Or 19s

I thought about 19s in the back. But they just won't look right in the front. I've been watching AM's monthly sales. Last month they had 18x10 AMRs in like silver for $90 each or something. Idc about looks too much for them.

I've ran AM wheels before, they are actually really nice... but I'm not sure how much I would trust aftermarket Chinese wheels doing high speeds down straightaways, brakes getting hot and just getting beat on for a handling course... OEM rims are going to be high quality and I think the 00R and Termi rims are good for up to 178mph.

I agree.
OEM wheels are very strong and they are easy to find.

First I gotta move in to the dorm next year and see if there is enough room. It's a suite style with lots of room so I may make a table out of them lol. But that would be a 40" tall table lol

Well FML the alternator is also toast. Sat for about 5 days and its dead. Key fob won't even unlock the doors, and the dome light won't turn on.

That is exactly what my car was doing. The alternator is actually discharging the battery.
This could also have been the cause of your lean condition at the track.
I went with a Motorcraft alternator because I have not had good luck with the auto parts store rebuilds.

Well best option is a coyote swap. Bc buying a new alternator and or battery is overrated.

Relax. Your car has actually been pretty reliable for it's age...

Yes. The alternator is completely different than a GT.

This is one of the grounds. Could that be a culprit?

Lol socc ur right ur getting tired of the issues the hell with that car.... (Sps wNna sell it for 1500?) lol im jk'n ur car is nice bud we all get pissed at them some time or another ... Hell i caught my car on fire when i put my torq box plates in on the inside i was using a small torch to heat up the tar crap ford puts in so i could weld the plates in and a dam rats nest was up behind the rear quarter panel ( the inside plastic one) and it caught fire and in turn that set fire to the insulation back there so i had to very very quickly remove the plastic panel to rip the burning insulation out needless to say i got it out but my heart sank when it happened lol

2001 Bullitt Build Thread

As far as ur ground question u can see how much if any of a voltage drop u have by placing a volt meter probe At each end of the cable and check th... Theres a writeup somewhere that im sure if u look u can find on how to check if u dont already know, there should be very little from one end to the other ... U can also check the resistance in just that cable which would be easier method , also id be concerned for a parasitic draw but u kinda need jumper cables and a volt meter to accurately test it because all the systems need to power down and if u dont set it up right when u probe around ull wAke the systems up lol

Yea i don't have any type of micrometer or way to check voltage levels. I may go and get the alternator checked at like Napa since thats the closest. Then i'll buy a micrometer and start checking other various parts that might cause draw. I watched a few videos on how to check for draw from accessories by pulling fuses (watching videos make us experts right?)

That ground definitely needs to be replaced.

Do you have the tools there, to replace the cable and remove the alternator?

Just basic hand tools. And something to relieve the tension on the belt tensioner, to remove the belt.

Yeah. It's just 10 mm bolts holding the alternator. You'll need a 3/8 ratchet for the tensioner pulley.
The ground cable, if you want to put it back like factory, is going to be the most difficult part...

Haha.
Just measure the cable and install it outside of that cable wrap. Use zip ties to hold it in place.
