My idle jumps around when I turn on the ac as well, it kinda stopped there for awhile once I unplugged the battery and let it relearn itself .. Still stalled out though when I got on it so idk.. I might try the iac from AM and see if that helps but I feel as if it's gonna be a lost cause....

I have now seen quite a few people say the auto parts store IACs are garbage and they helped their cars but didnt fix them properly. They swear by using the OEM Motorcraft IAC it solved their issues for good. Im going to order one and give it a try, if its the same Ill return it like the others. These are coming from forums on the 4.6 engine specifically not just Mustangs.

So I was able to get it fixed, it was the damn IAC after all. I took the IAC off of my 96 GT, even though its a different one that is supposed to go on the 03. It works perfect, no more hanging idle, no more stalling when you stop after a 3/4 throttle pull, just a slight fluctuation in rpms with ac or defrost setting on like they all tend to do. So Ill be ordering a motorcraft IAC to put on one of them, hopefully that one will be good. I think a lot of people have such issues with the idle stuff because of crap aftermarket autoparts stores junk.

The longer I work with these cars the more I stick with OEM stuff.

I have one from a 96 GT on my 03 and it runs great and its 20 yrs old, so yeah I would say it will work it did for me. Then to replace the one on my 96 I got one from a 96 Grand Marquis and it works great also. They both run and idle perfectly. The only difference between the 2 is the older IAC has a breather vent cap on it and the 02 and up ones dont. Its funny a 20 yr old junkyard part works when a new aftermarket one wont, lol.

You can look at crown vics, grand marquis, lincolns, etc I did notice the truck IACs are a little different and wont work, they dont have a stem for the vac hose that goes to the intake. But surley there are some 4.6 cars in your local yards I would think?

I dont have the tires yet, was worrying about the IAC issue. I am going to order them soon, then sell my stock Bullits and tires to recoup like $350 of the $550. I also will be getting the lowering springs soon, a guy at work committed to helping me to change out the springs and ball joints. Just have to order the stuff soon.

That's good bro I hope you get em on soon, make sure to post the pics when you do!! And to be honest I didn't even think about the grand marquis and crown Vic's when I typed that, I'm sure there has to be something, then again there's only like one salvage yard that's not at least a one or two hour drive..

Let me know and I could always try to snatch one up for you at one of my local pick n pulls. I have 3 of them within a 15 mile radius. Then just ship it. I will be hitting them soon to look for a couple other things anyway. The only hassle being in the case it didnt work for you. Probably be $20-25 for the part and $10-15 to ship it to you in Tenn. If all else fails let me know, it will beat spending $100 on one.

Painted the center caps of the wheels on my 96 the other day. They are OE brand wheels and had an ugly center cap. Not a big deal or challenge but they came out good and it was free! Actually changed the look of the car a little bit to me, Ill get a side shot later on. Small stuff is fun sometimes and satisfying especially if you dont spend too much money.

On the O3 Ill be painting the calipers verse ordering the caliper covers like I did on my 96 GT. Also will be painting the rotor hub (not sure of the technical term right now) on both of the cars. I love it when wheels are clean, fresh painted brakes, etc, looks so good to have those little touches done to me.

Just ordered my lowering springs for the 03 today. I ended up going with the SR springs from AM. Hopefully they get the shipping right. I didnt want to use them after the last debacle but I really couldnt find springs with a 1.5" drop any lower in price with free shipping, and seemed to be of good quality. Anyway Ill be installing them with a friend when they come in along with new Moog ball joints as well. I will be installing without isos, so hoping for and should be close to a 1.7" drop. Will wrap top and bottom coils with elec tape to reduce any noise issues.

Now Im shopping for some good paint for the calipers, as I will also be finanly ordering my tires later this week as well so I can have the new wheels, tires, lowered, painted brakes, and get some things checked off the list now that its running perfect and I knocked out most of the detailing and small issues.

I will be also repainting some interior peices as well soon with the duplicolor interior vinyl paint. Going to do the bezel around the radio and the door handle pull/inserts. Their slightly worn/chipped, this is all I need interior wise to be satisfied the rest of it is really clean and no issues luckily. I will add a double din headunit most likely next year and focus on the rest of the sound system. Want this car to be as comfortable as it can be, so some new tech, bluetooth, etc will be nice for DD in the spring/summer.

I'd do the SEM interior dye vs duplicolor... True black is their Landau Black. The charcoal... I have to get the name on the can I have at home.

I got the same SR springs still waiting to get installed, I m waiting for my CC to arrive with 15months 0% intrest and I ll order my front struts and maybe order a mid pipe at the same time I m not sure which one to go with yet but I think if my isolators still look ok I will leave them on with the new springs for a drop of 1.5"

Im hoping to have mine on and rolling in the next 2 weeks or so. I got new ball joints coming, and Im going without isos and will wrap the ends with elec tape. Hoping for a 1.7-1.75" drop doing it this way. Im gonna take mine to the same shop that aligned my 96 and see if they can work their magic (my 96 was very, very, close to spec without adjusting the plates when I lowered it with H&R Supersports) so gonna gamble it can be made close to spec. If not Ill order a set of MM plates, have a guy on the Corral Ive been talking to that has a lightly used set for $100 plus shipping costs I may spring for, or just order new ones if they dont check out or are sold then. Ill be out $50 for another alignment if it doesnt work out tho. I also just ordered my tires for the MMD wheels I got a while back. Hoping to have it dropped, new staggered 18s on it, all around the same time. Then Ill move onto painting the calipers unless I have time to do it agter the spring install. Gonna do a little interior work too soon on some slightly worn panels to make my interior 100% mint on the 03. Hopefully will be adding the off road H pipe within the next 2 mths as well. After all this I will be probably done for this season. If I feel like pushing the budget Ill get a tuner as well from MPT or Bama too before the summer is over. I would love to do gears this summer but probably wont happen, we will see, if so then, all I would be adding probably over the winter would be a TB/plenum (TFS Summit), J mod next spring (still dont have the courage for this mod DIY), subframes, and LCAs in the spring as well. With all that I will be happy with it for a while Im sure. I will also be adding some small things this year too like Mach 1 chin spoiler, OEM correct smoked headlights (has new clear ones on it now that I will sell), and a honeycomb deck lid panel or a black one of some sort, maybe dip it or try too anyway.

Hopefully you get those springs on soon! I hope I like them. Decided not to go to agressive with the drop since I will be driving this car as much as I can in the summers. Ill be happy with a 1.7" drop, and 18" wheels.

In the next couple weeks Ill be ordering a Mach 1 chin, off road H pipe, caliper paint, interior paint. Then lastly this year Ill try to get a tune as well, probably just go with Bama since its the best priced and they will send updated tunes when I add things. I wont be doing any crazy mods anytime soon so it should hold me over a couple years if and when things get serious power wise. I wish I could load tunes for 2 Mustangs on one Tuner, that would be awesome, is there a way to do this?? I assume you could get a tune for one, install it, un marry the tuner and get a tune for the other car that you will be adding more to in the future. Would like to get a good 93 tune for my 96, load it, leave it that way, then get the tuner set up for my 03 that I will be doing more mods too in the future. Either one of them if FI is installed at any point then it would be getting a dyno tune from Lidio at Alternative Performance which is about a 45 min drive from me currently.

So it can be done though? I would only do it once, to tune the 96 with 93 octane, then un marry it and use it on the 03 only at that point. Does that mess with your Bama tunes for life? If you unmarry the original var you had tuned?

Thats the plan Im hoping for. Actually will be doing some work on the 96 soon too, repainting a couple interior peices, fixing a spot on the leather passenger seat (still researching as how to dye it in one spot only), then maybe finding a good deal on a new or used headunit as the JVC in the 96 is dated and it has a blown channel I think, all speakers work and sound good, except for the passenger side rear. All wires are good, fuses are good, reset the radio, unhooked, rehooked, etc and still wont power that speaker, its annoying as hell.

Listed my OEM wheels and tires Wed night, and had them sold by Thursday afternoon. He drove 4 hrs to look at them so I didnt make him wait until next week when I get my tires shipped in for the 18s and mounted, installed, so he wouldnt have to make that drive again. He was a really nice guy, just getting into Mustangs, think I made a new friend, lol. Anyway sold them for $450, listed them at $500. The tires alone were worth that as they are $169 each on Amazon and had maybe, maybe 1k miles on them now. Anyway he got a good deal and the OEM Bullits were in pretty good shape, with minor flaws as any wheels will have but for 13 yrs old and 75k miles they are nice. He didnt need the wheels but he will sell the ones off his car as mine were nicer or he will use snow tires on them or something.

But its on stands for now. Had to rush out and borrow a set, and buy a set, was cheap though. Looking at how hard it would be to install the new lowering springs and it doesnt look bad at all with the wheels off now. The shocks and struts still look brand new, no leaks, and have about 1k miles on them so they should last me a couple seasons anyway. The SR springs came today from AM, man there shipping is quick to my location. I may attempt the rear springs this coming Wed without my buddy here to get a head start on them. I will also be painting the calipers and rotor hubs too on Wed so when the new wheels and tires go on they wont need to come off for a while at least. Be nice to finanly have it lowered, staggered 18s on it, freshly painted brakes, and I will be cleaning and painting quite a few items under the car while I have access to it for a while now while its on stands. Cant wait to have some progress on this thing finanly, now that the idle issue is fixed.

Also clay barred it on Wed afternoon and put a nice even coat of Meguirers carnuba on it too. My arm hurts still.

In the next week I will ordering a set of smoked (OE style) headlight housings and installing those too. In about 2 to 3 weeks (buddies help permitting) at the most it should look like a different car to me at least. Then its on to a mid pipe and possibly a tune/tuner his summer.

Lucky. I've been trying to sell my OEM wheels and tires for less than that and have not had any bites at all.

Rear springs are super easy. Took a while my first time, but now i could do both sides in 30 minutes, including jacking up the car.

Also in the pic it looks unlevel but its not, just the angle of the pic. I have a jack stand on each side of the front where the jack goes, and then I have my 2 stock small jacks that came with my cars under the front as well, placed under a solid peice of frame, just slight pressure to make them even with the jack stand height. In the rear I have a stand on each side where the jack would be positioned, and my small floor jack under the rearend (cant see it in the pic, too far underneath the car). The one jack in the rear wheel well is just sitting there I had 5 jack stands and that was the odd ball, it looks like its being used but its not. First time for me having the entire car up in the air with no wheels on it, ready to work on it, so I wanted it to be safe. I dont love being under or near under cars on jacks or jack stands. Its very, very stable though and isnt going anywhere. Im probably more suited for ramps with my paranoia and anxiety issues, ha.

Anyway just thought I would point out how its sitting now and make sure there isnt a better way to let it sit like this for work if anyone had any suggestions on how to make it safer or easier?
