    Ford Adds New GT500 Heritage Edition and Exclusive Code Orange Paint | Plus Coastal Edition Mustang

    Another article on new paint colors for 2022. Whoopdee-do. Where’s the technical article on the GT and Mach 1 losing 10 horsepower for 2022? Oh, well I guess Ford isn’t feeding you all press releases on that one, huh? I like the blue…Yawn. How about something that actually matters?

    2021 Mustang Mach 1 | 10R80 | Road Test Review

    so as a follow up, the horsepower reductions in 2022 are to meet LEV III standards, which are a product of that pimple-infested, worthless, braindead dirt licking State of California and their CARB. It’s also about CO2, a tasteless oderless, harmless gas, not a pollutant. It’s an effort of one...

    2021 Mustang Mach 1 | 10R80 | Road Test Review

    Tob, you need to get the lowdown for us on this 10 hp decrease on all of the 2022 5.0 Mustangs. The only thing I’ve seen is it is related to emissions, but that doesn‘t narrow things down much. It could be a calibration change, or a cat change, or ???. I need to know if this is a hardware of...

    2022 Ford Mustang Gets Updates | Including New Stealth & California Special Packages

    I like the GT/CS. I don’t know why they have always made that package exclusive of the Performance Package. It seems like a natural pair. I stopped being excited about Mustangs when the new GT500 and Mach 1 prices made them Luxury car class. Prices increases have outpaced wage increased...

    7.3L Godzilla Swapped Turbo S-197 Mustang Drag Car | What's Not To Love???

    That’s a cool swap and well done, but to answer you title question of “What’s not to love?”: 1) 16V OHC cam-in-block 2) heavy cast iron block (you alluded to how an aluminum block would be awesome. I agree.) Regarding Godzilla in general: How about de-stroking it to a 429 and putting a...

    Off-Road Testing a 2020 Ford F-250 Tremor | Coastal Carolina Sand-Pit | Full Review

    I like the Super Duty. I own one with the 6.7, but they are terrible off road trucks. Ours has been off road twice and both times ended up stuck and had to be pulled out - One time on a mostly flat grassy surface: and the tires are in good shape! These trucks just weigh too much to be taken...

    7.3L Godzilla V8 Gets a Ported Intake Manifold | Dyno-Tested

    I like what Ford did with the 13-14 Trinity GT500: - Bigger Blower - Smaller Pulley - More displacement - More compression - Bigger Cams - More RPM There’s something to be said when a manufacturer takes and ‘all of the above’ approach :-)

    Michelin Cup 2 for 13-14 GT500

    I need new tires for my 2014 GT500. Stock tire size is 265/40R-19 front and 285/35R-20 rear. According to michelinman.com, I can now (finally!) get Cup 2’s for my car. They are Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 Connect (240). I can’t seem to find these on Discount Tires website. Can I get them?

    Ford's New 'Enthusiast' Package Lowers Cost of Explorer ST

    Losing a sound system, rear heated seats and a wireless charging pad, but adding a model year does not add up to a $4k price reduction. Sorry, there is more to the story here. I bet the MT statement of this one being RWD instead of AWD is probably the real reason for the price reduction. It...

    Reviews or Track Times?

    Aha! Rear seat delete. I was WAY off, lol.

    Reviews or Track Times?

    RSD? Roll Stability Datalogger? Red Striped Dipstick? Real Strong Donut? Rally Sport Division? Random Steakhouse Destination? Retail Supplied Database? Roush Sport Durango? Ridge Sheet Drought? Really Stupid Definition? I’m trying but I can come up with anything that makes sense, lol.

    Design “revisions”

    Actually, here is the updated side sticker. Quite a bit different than the original prototype, and I can’t say I like it as much, but YMMV.

    Design “revisions”

    I saw in the Ford Performance Email today an article that talked about the small details they have changed between the time the vehicle was unveiled and when it went into production. Basically, they highlighted three changes. Two of which I hate and the third I can’t notice. 1) Chrome Outline...

    Mach 1 Wheel Design | The Art Behind the Performance

    “Forged with cast aluminum” Isn’t that an oxymoron? Which is it, forged or cast? I was excited to see more information about the Mach 1, but this snippet has absolutely no technical information whatsoever. It would be nice to hear of any technical challenges and how they were overcome...

    Tremor Off-Road Package Lands in the 2021 F-150 Lineup

    Lol. I see your point. After I bought my 662hp 2014 GT500 I decided that 600 horsepower should be the new minimum for any of my future vehicles :-). Anything less is just uncivilized. If a car can’t go 0-60 in under five seconds or a truck do the same feat in under six I’m dissappointed.

    Tremor Off-Road Package Lands in the 2021 F-150 Lineup

    I agree if leaving it stock the Ecoboost would be more capable, but I want to put a blower on a V8. The way I see it, I can give a V8 low end torque (and WAY more horsepower)... I can’t make an Ecoboost sound good. If I want my cake and eat it too I’ve got to start with the V8 :-)

    Tremor Off-Road Package Lands in the 2021 F-150 Lineup

    No I just did MSRP to MSRP. I doubt the 2021 has that big of a discount. It might be a better deal to get a leftover 2020 F150 at this exact moment because of the model change, but I was taking an average (and admittedly simplified) look at prices average prices. Besides from what I’ve seen...

    Tremor Off-Road Package Lands in the 2021 F-150 Lineup

    This post really opened my eyes! I hate to keep harping on it, but I built and priced a Lariat super crew 4x4 5.0 f150 and a similar F250 7.3... and the Super Duty was cheaper!!! WTH? Okay the new F150 has a bigger touch screen... but holy crap the Super Duty is WAY more truck for less money...

    Tremor Off-Road Package Lands in the 2021 F-150 Lineup

    That 7.3 is a huge value! I’ve never considered a Super Duty without a PowerStroke, but the cost savings of the 7.3 makes it worth a test drive at least.

    Tremor Off-Road Package Lands in the 2021 F-150 Lineup

    This truck actually raised my interest until the release appears to require the 3.5EB. This truck, more than any other (currently released) trim level, needs a V8 option. I know how awesome the EB is, but at the end of the day I’m choosing a 5.0 with a 3.0 Whipple. (I have not yet had the...

    2021 Ford F-150 Adds More Power and Torque | Up to 430HP and 570lb-ft

    Last time I checked, the 2020 F-150 Limited was available with a 450 hp HO 3.5L. This new power boost truck, the most powerful power plant currently announced for the 2021 model including the limited, is only 430hp. Has anyone else noticed this?

    2013 GT500 Tire question. I tried search but nothing on options.

    Well I hear Michelin is replacing the Cup 2 with the new Cup 2 Connect. That doesn’t bother me any but right now they only offer the our front tires (265/40R19) in the Cup 2, and only offer the rears (285/35R20) in the Cup 2 Connect. I don’t want to mismatch tires, so I’m kinda screwed. If...

    2013 GT500 Tire question. I tried search but nothing on options.

    Not to hijack the thread but it’s been dormant for a while and I want to ask a tire related question myself: I am replacing the OEM GY Supercar F2s as they are now almost 7 years old. I am considering Michelin Cup-2’s as a replacement. My car is still stock, so about 600 rwhp is my guess. I’m...
