    I just wanted to say thank you! Although I have my trusty Chilton, I feel a lot more confident changing my spark plugs! I just wish it wasn't getting dark. Actually it is dark but I do have a light. Again, thank you!

    I'm having a serious problem with another moderator who goes by the name Deadsp0t. He just issued me an infraction for doing the same thing that he did to me. It started with him posting an attack on me and I responded. I've had problems with him before in which case he issued me a warning, but was not very polite about it. I responded, and he again was rude with me. This time, I tried responding to his warning, and he gave me an infraction, yet he continues to keep doing the same thing that he is telling me not to do. The comments were deleted off the thread shortly after they were posted from both him and myself, but I don't think it's fair how he can threaten me and tell me what I can and can't do when it's the same thing he is doing. Can you please help with this and possibly let him know to leave me alone? I wouldn't have a problem with him, but it seems that he is always trying to start something. I will also be talking to other Moderators/Founders as well. Thanks.

    :confused:SpectorV, I have a question or two, that hopefully you can answer for me. I wrote it in the 2005-2009 Mustang blog and it's called "ELECTRONIC TRANS". It's basically questions about the TSC button and the OVERDRIVE button, I see a few people viewed it but no one has made any comments.

    Hey, mine is a manual and ive never really had any direct experience on stalls, I am sure someone on the forum may have input as to what works for your desired goals (track only car, street car etc)

    Hey SpectorV, how's things going? Your car is a stick right? Do you have any knowledge or opinions on Stall Converters for Automatics?? Thinking about those and want to match up my 4.6 and 410 gears with an upcoming Super Charger.

    centrifugal would be - procharger , vortech and for a twin screw whipple is a good way to go. A friend of mine has an 06 GT with a paxton and loves it. Its all about how much boost and how good the tune it... you may require fuel pump/injectors/maf upgrades it all depends and I am not sure on your car. The end result will be 9-10psi and about 450rwhp which is about the limit your car can handle safely. Some push higher but I would not. The tune once again is the MOST important part. Post this question on the forums as well for more people to reply.

    SpectorV, I have a personal question for you. What SuperCharger do you recommend for a stock engine (4.6 3V)?? I have been told/warned about being careful which one I choice cause many are geared for Engines that have Internal Mods, not stock with bolt ons. Mine only has Steeda CAI, SCT tuner and 410 gears only. Saleen and Roush has been mentioned to me as good choices, others to be careful of cause with some, I could BLOW stuff in Engine up. What do you think??

    just H&R race springs for front and rear. The rear have both isolators (OEM rubber ones). The rear is 26.5 inches ground/fender and front is 26.0. I have an IRS but the drop on a live axle should be about the same. The offset on the rear wheels also helps as they stick out as far as they can.

    yea, If I was doing it over again i would go with a straight shot. Everyone has a different opinion on power etc. I would do it if only for the ease of working on the car lol... if I ever have to have the tune tweeked I plan to swap out.

    Hey bud, just some food for thought. Both myself and my buddy with an 04 Torch red Terminator changed our CAIs from the JLT that you have to the straight shot JLT. I know the look is awesome on the bigger one like you have but the straight shot is much better for the engine. With all the bends in that CAI that we all had with the old JLT it makes it harder to pull air. Not to mention it is pulling air off HOT pavement. My tuner (PHP) recommended a straight shot CAI after my first Dyno tune, after I put it on my Check engine light went off. The car feels better and has better throttle response. Just wanted to let you know that.

    the mach 1 used a tokico shock/strut, different springs (600/300 rate linear i believe), and a different front/rear sway bar for the most part. I think thats correct.

    You can buy some tokicos valved for a 600 front / 300 rear and go with ford racing C springs. That should get good results.

    there are a ton of mustang forum members in your state, Ive learned a lot from most of them. Just been digging and finding answers for a long time lol

    What's up man? Like your ride. Checked out some of your posts. You've got good info and are pretty accurate with advise. Glad to see someone on here knows what they are talking about. Ever in Louisiana let me know.

    i can never remember, i just did per instructions and make SURE they dont hit the underside of the hood. You want the most big spacers on top as you can get if I remember right so the strut gets more of its normal travel start/stop position back. I think in my case I put one bit/one small on top and the same on bottom (same top/bottom) just be sure to put some putty or something on the top of the strut shaft and close the hood to make sure when you drop it that it doesnt mess up the hood with the top of the strut shaft :)

    Quick question: When doing the CC plates. There was 4 small spacers and 4 big spacers. Do you recall how many spacers did you use above and below?
