    I actually sold the car a little while back, but I did run a few tanks through it. It was a lot of fun, actually! With the gears, tune, and 75-shot I was able to keep up with my buddy's Charger R/T for a bit haha

    Yeah I did it the help from a mechanic friend on a lift, the same time the clutch was done. If you have to replace the clutch, now would be the time! Otherwise if it's not leaking too badly I'd recommend living with it. Oil pan can stay, everything else has to go though.

    Disable CEL for Evap Code?

    Yup from the gas tank, right where you put in the pump nozzle. Mine actually drips a little gas while filling up. Fairly common spot to leak on our cars.

    Need Help ASAP - Gear Install Fail :(

    Douglass, you're exactly right and that's what I ended up doing with the new pin. She's all back together now and working great. Thanks for all the help! Lesson learned on this one. audioAl- happy to let others learn from my screw ups! :p

    Disable CEL for Evap Code?

    I have a minor evap leak code being thrown, likely due to a leak in my filler neck. Just curious if I can use my SCT X3 tuner to disable that... Thanks!

    Need Help ASAP - Gear Install Fail :(

    Heck yeah! 18x10's in the rear. Traction isn't really that big of an issue without either rain or nitrous.

    Mine's a stocker, as far as I know.

    Need Help ASAP - Gear Install Fail :(

    Appreciate it, David. I did find the stuff I need (hopefully) and order it already though. If it ends up being wrong I'll hit you up. I'll take a picture later, but there is definitely no way the original pin was going to fit in mine. This is on an 03 for what it's worth.

    Need Help ASAP - Gear Install Fail :(

    Just looking at this...At what point is the cross pin supposed to get installed? I followed most of this guide during my install, which has you put the lock pin in towards the end - Mustang Differential Gears - Installation Instructions at AmericanMuscle.com But my ring gear sits too far over...

    They're out of stock because I just ordered the last one :). Going to hunt down the c-clip next.

    Need Help ASAP - Gear Install Fail :(

    Thanks so much, Phil! Looks like this is exactly what I need- Mustang 7.5" Notched Cross Pin (79-10) I can't believe I'm paying $50 for a pin...

    Need Help ASAP - Gear Install Fail :(

    Fun story here. First off, I completely regret attempting the gear install myself. It was not worth the money saved seeing as how I had to rent/buy/borrow a stupid amount of tools. And I'm a pretty competent person. Usually. So I got Ford Racing 3.73 gears installed, successfully I had thought...

    Next Mods???

    Looks great, Branden! I like the look of your car a lot. The next thing I would do would be lowering springs. SR Performance has a nice affordable set that won't compromise ride quality much. They say they're for the GT's, but they fit v6's just fine and provide a 1.5" drop (I measured before...

    I don't know anything about cars

    Kudos to you for having the humility to actually level with yourself and know your limits. That being said, don't sell yourself short! With any of my hobbies money has always been an issue. I found ways to get things done myself...things I could have never been able to afford if I were to have a...

    NEED MORE MODS FOR MORE POWER

    I just finished a 3.73 install yesterday. I completely regret doing it myself. A trip to Harbor Freight, multiple trips to AutoZone, borrowing my mechanic friends tools, taking the diff and pinion shaft in to get bearings removed/pressed on, measuring backlash, grinding the pinion shaft lock pin...
