Lol, dang. I bet my sportlines feel like a caddy compared to H&R SS's. They are 550lb springs in the front compared to 700lb. Once I got the new shocks and struts, my Mach handles better than it did stock. The ride is stiff, but bumps are better than the stock shocks and struts. Probably cause mine were so old.

What's wrong with MMFF? Can't be any better or worse than any other magazine that relies on product advertisement.

@azurebluemach
All the rags inflate numbers, exaggerate manufacturer's claims and flat out lie.

I don't subscribe to any because they're all just filled with adverts and 1 or 2 knob slobbing articles where they try to hock more product and don't really tell you anything useful.

I thought so. I dont want to drop it much but I want a much better spring rate than stock. So I was going to go with the B springs from Ford.

B springs are fine, the SR springs from AM are actually pretty good too from what everyone says. I normally steer clear of SR anything but the springs are ok apparently.

I follow MM&FF because they are big on the west coast. My clubs president was featured in one coming out very shortly (white terminator). And they are covering the car show we are hosting tomorrow (technically this morning... I should go to sleep lol).

I have not followed them like that in a while. Picked one up a few months ago and it seemed like more of the same to me. They do sometimes have cool build articles, one of my favorite SN95 builds ever was featured in MMFF a few years ago, real low mileage Buillitt built and On3 turbocharged with an auto swap. Thing is sick.

However, it is still "Mustang 101" that you never go by performance numbers and claims in the rags. These are the same idiots that found a 20hp difference between the Explorer and GT40 intake manifolds that circulated around for YEARS. It still does somehow... The intakes all flow the same. Same guys who found something like an 8whp increase from going to all Royal Purple fluids with no other changes too and they consistently ride MSD's cock even though MSD products are absolute **** these days. Those are just a few examples.

If I remember right, the guys at Horsepower TV did a RP comparison. There's was like 2-3whp increase that they saw, but I would think that would be the variability of a test anyway. I've never been to a dyno sessions, but I can't imagine they ever come up the exact same everytime you run the same setup.

If they did it on a black LS1 Camaro then we watched the same episode... back in like 2003 lol... Wow...

And that is the sort of **** I hate. Take god knows how old fluids out of the car and put new stuff in and then re-dyno. Of COURSE its probably going to run a little better with all brand new fresh fluids it would have done just as well with Autozone brand stuff.

RP is the most goddamn overpriced stuff in the world anyway. You might as well buy Amsoil if you are going to pay their prices. If not just run M1 for $26 for 5 gallons at Wal Mart.

I agree RP is overpriced. I don't have the experience to say Amsoil is better or worse though. I think they are great, but I also think RP is great lol.

Lol and you are spot on, fresh oil of any kind is going to improve how the engine runs compared to used.
