Re: blow off valve

Re: Who is running the most power through 225 width tires?

The semi-trailing-arm rear suspension can be a fickle beast. Toe and camber are constantly changing as the suspension moves through its range of motion. You can shim out the camber at static ride height, but as soon as you launch (especially with squishy spring rates) you're left with a fraction of ...

Re: Looking for 4.6 32V Mod motor into XR4ti info.

Take a good look at the stock crossmember. Relocating the TCA pivots upward is not as simple as drilling a new pair of holes - you'd be fabbing a new crossmember from scratch, essentially. And if you're doing that, you'd be wise not to replicate the inherently-flawed geometry of the stock front susp...

Re: fuel injection troubles

Here's how the fuel system on an EFI car is configured: The fuel pressure regulator (FPR) is on the outlet of the fuel rail. The fuel pump pushes fuel into one side of the fuel rail and the FPR restricts the outlet of the rail in order to build pressure. The vacuum reference port on the FPR ensures ...
