Which How-To's / Information articles would you most like to see?

Just wondering what you feel are the most popular or the most needed how-to's that we should be looking to get up on the site... keep in mind that I dont have 3500 bucks to buy a turbo kit to tell you how to put it on unless someone wants to buy it for me.

We already have a few going, you can see whats already up at www.mustangevolution.com/articles

well brent is fixing to go though that very thing, a complete engine build, If i can convince him to take pictures, or make sure im there and I can be the picture person.. then we can probably get a good how to wrote up on an entire engine build, then just break it down into different areas perhaps.

i havent seen a post like that in a good bit actually, for a 99 up vs a pre 99 its pretty darn easy anyway (stock pre 99 gt of course) especially the 94-98 version

Oh Please tell me your kidding about not seeing that Q asked cause Jimmy freakin asked like yesterday.

I think it needs to be addressed. Cause it would take care of the majority of Qs that get asked here under that How to beat a GT

I asked if I had xxxx mods.... would it be feasible. As I would have like 265-270 horsepower... I didn't ask "what mods do I need"... see the difference?... also, I speak to you now, the owner of a 8.8" rear end... that is awesome.... 2 WHEEL PEELS

LOL i really hope you are talking about somethign OTHER than bolt ons cuz... nothing will get you that amount of power with out going into the motor big time, or going with a power adder. Just cuz you match the hp/tq dotn mean you will run the same times either.

I don't have much I can offer for a "how-to"... I'm still learning all this stuff. The rear install was easy as pie to tell you the truth.... as I thought, just bolts.... nothing sticky except for those damn driveshaft bolts.. good lord.. I pulled my tricep getting them out. That's sayin' a lot by the way. 20" biceps (tricep is included there ).... so yeah... we had to get a cheater bar and the WD40. My right tricep is hurtin' like a ***** this morning. It'll be fine by tonight, for work... but wow, didn't realize I was pulling that hard. So anyway, I wasn't talking about bolt-ons... I had mentioned some port and polish stuff, as well as a shift kit, and a chip... there was a bunch of stuff. And I was just asking if I would hang with a GT with those mods... because I want to work to a supercharger in another couple years.... and I'd like to be able to hang with a GT before the supercharger.

I'd like to see a detailed write-up on the 8.8 swap. The spring one would be nice as well.

Maybe subframe connectors so people dont go welding them on with the car jacked up?
