    Project New beginning

    I didn't intend to replace the engine with the intent of going over 350 hp. I bought the super coupe motor from a friend cheap when the mild n/a motor started knocking. Oddly enough from being started too infrequently of all things. It should have just been about 270 hp and was a relatively...

    Project New beginning

    Not sure who is left. I am currently building a 20 over motor out of a supercoupe for my 94. It will be MPX supercharged on a heavily modded motor.

    New Engine 4.2l Upgrade 2000 Mustang Coupe

    Those are good clearances. The 3.8SC motor I am currently building has 18's an the mains and I could only get 20's on the rods with an undersize bearing.

    New Engine 4.2l Upgrade 2000 Mustang Coupe

    I always run a high volume but modify the pickup. You cut away some of the tin that blocks the mesh screen. The larger opening allows the pump to be able to draw in more oil.

    New Engine 4.2l Upgrade 2000 Mustang Coupe

    The stock oil pump pickup opening is too small to allow a high volume pump to draw in enough oil. May lead to starvation.

    New Engine 4.2l Upgrade 2000 Mustang Coupe

    Did you ever finish this? Been on the dyno? Does the 4.2 pan come close to the frame or steering? As the first person to mass produce G10 phenolic spacers, I can say that the guy who quoted some bullshit Audi test to claim they don't reduce heat is full of crap. Aside from the touch test Six...

    FIRST Ford Barra motors in the USA! IT HAS FINALLY HAPPENED!!!!!!!!!!

    The old big blocks were pretty wild. I have a 72 Mustang with a quench head Cleveland. I picked up a 410 stroker for it 10 years ago but haven't touched it yet. I have a 1991 Supercoupe with a ton of bolt ons and a 4R70W swap that I love to drive but it has a no start gremlin. It dynoed 260...

    FIRST Ford Barra motors in the USA! IT HAS FINALLY HAPPENED!!!!!!!!!!

    After going through all the trouble of a unique swap, it would be wise. From what I read, it is a simple upgrade. I just added a lot of high dollar upgrade parts to my brother's 2004 Hemi Durango. It is the one year that engine was a bit iffy. It ran awesome for 6 months. He went out to...

    FIRST Ford Barra motors in the USA! IT HAS FINALLY HAPPENED!!!!!!!!!!

    Beg to differ. There is NO N/A motor period that can handle 15 lbs of boost. That's low compression forged piston/crank territory. Ford forums Australia says 6 lbs with a good tune that is not too aggressive. The last thing anyone wants is to spend big bucks on a motor and turbo setup to...

    Dreaded 1999/2000 3.8L Pinging & How To Eliminate

    Try adding a PCV baffled catch can to reduce oil drawn into the intake. Reducing the timing won't help. With a programmer I took out 8 degrees. Didn't help.

    Dreaded 1999/2000 3.8L Pinging & How To Eliminate

    I think you guys are confusing detonation with engine wear. Detonation onlly occurs during acceleration and usually at part throttle. Worn lifters are noisy all the time.

    No THIS ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ is the reason that any forum has a "crappy reputation". There is no reason for this kind of response to anything he said. How the **** would you know what anyone can afford? Please don't play big shot as a means of arguing down another person. For all you know...

    AC compressor wont turn on

    A low charge or burned out relay will prevent the system from coming on.

    Same as before I guess. If you give me an address with zip code, I could figure out the shipping.

    What are they currently selling for? I think I still have 3 or 4 left.

    Intake spacer

    It is better to only drill out runner openings. That way the phenolic sheet acts as a barrier between the upper and lower intakes. If you do a search on spacer results, something should come up. Many posted dyno results and temperature readings, including myself. I had a $2000 laser...

    Intake spacer

    When I started making these 20 years ago, I used G10. It is the best phenolic material available and is virtually indestructible. The brown phenolic will warp from heat and chemical exposure.
