Would you say that it is worth the buy? Theyre quite expensive. Has anyone had any experience with this?

Probably one of the best upgrades you could do to your stang to get the most pep in its step. Evenly distributed power to both wheels with a lot more torque = happy mustang owner

Feeling of torque yes but not literally more

OP, be sure to get the install kit for it and if you have higher mileage the master bearing kit would be a better idea

The cost of new gears/diff may be high but it'll be worth it

the issue with the 7.5" rear tlok (oem design with spider gears/clutches) is that its weak to shock (instant take off such as with slicks from a high rpm). The spider gears will break~

if you stay off the track you wont need anything else but if you play to run on a sticky track or with sticky tires it can cause breakage.

If you are gonna go to the track and launch the car hard go with a auburn or some other brand thats stronger.

DO GEARS AT THE SAME TIME its the same basic amount of work so should save you some cash.

I know you were asking them, thought I'd just throw my two cents in there. Unless you're planning on putting a blower on or something, I don't think it's really neccesary

Well hell if you've got a cheap one then why not! I've been actually looking for one so I can pop new gears in it and s/c, but I haven't found a good donor car and online everything is way too expensive even used that I've seen

If you go the route like you said here I would recommend 8.8 especially if manual since it puts more of a shock on the rear of the car when launching

And I know him haha jpl4k3 he's running a forum right now, not bad numbers considering his style cam and other factors

What does deleted IMRCs from lower intake mean?
In the 01-04 models there are runners in the lower intake that have butterfly valves in them, they open up ~3000rpms, helps with low end tq

Yeah 00 won't have then, and if the motor replaced in yours has them it isn't functional since your ecu doesn't have the program for it

And no spacer under the intake if that's what you mean, I have an adapter for my throttle body but that's it

I went with 3.73 (and TLOK), and it was definitely a noticeable improvement. You wont make more power, but your RPMs will stay higher between shifts, and therefore you will go faster. I got mine used off ebay as a combo for 400$, and have not had a problem yet after a year (people take them out of their F-150's when they upgrade to 4.10's or higher). I try to use Ford Racing parts whenever I can, so that is what I would recommend for you.

The TLok is a great investment. it will help you put more power to the road, and make your car safer to drive. I have owned 3 mustangs; my second one I wrecked in the rain by accelerating too hard. Because the power goes to one wheel in a stock mustang, it sent me spinning out into the guard rail while I was getting on the interstate. When I put the Tlok on this one, traction improved significantly, particularly in the rain. I recently added fatter tires, and I am now only "chirping" in the rain when I floor it, and leaving camaro drivers feeling inadequate about their suspension.

Do you mean the stock LSD, or a TLOK made for the 7.5? The 7.5 rear-end is well-known to take up to 300hp and do just fine. I would expect having to change the clutch before having to change the entire rear-end.

You aren't supposed to use slicks on a stock 3.8 period. It would likely break the 8.8 after a few pulls as well. You have to have the right suspension setup and a good amount of HP before you even think about using slicks.
