    It could have a bunch of stickes that were locked that have the steps to do common mods. Like cai, pullies,mass air, chips, that sort of thing.
    What do u think? Would this help the members? I think it would.

    I have seen other boards that have had great success in making a Tips and Ticks/ How to section.

    The other problem is alot of the times the searches come up with the wrong **** or not so good threads. This way We could make sure that all he how to threads are of the highest quality and awnser the most questions.

    see, somebody agrees with me. :lol:

    yeah, a few months I got started on a web site containing all the info from the major "how-to" threads on here. unfortunetly, I'm lazy, and it didn't get all that far. I imagine that if somebody could make a REALLY good web site with tons of how-to stuff containing info from here, Sean might add a link somewhere. who knows.

    I think that we should have a forum dedicated to the info already on the stite. How many people are awaare of the other parts of this sit? How many people think to look at the other parts? I still think we could use a How-to forum.

    Yeah there are other sites that have really nice “How-To” section. i guess you just have to bookmark these things for yourself for future reference. don’t know why 3.8mustang.com doesn’t want to provide the same type of set-up. i’m sure the authors of these “How-To’s”and any others would be more then happy to allow them to be published here as well. and then any new “How-To’s” could be submitted to the proper powers to be (Sean) for review, approval and addition to the list…

    just don’t get it, after all the threads that get posted with the same repeated questions on how to do something… maybe it’s a space issue..?

    anyway, here’s the list i have, maybe any other’s that people have can be added to this list and then that master list posted in one thread listed as How-To’s, that way if a member does a search for “How-To” it will come up with this master list of links…. just a thought…

    appearance = http://v6stangs.com/index.php?page=how_to/appearance/index.php

    maintenance = http://v6stangs.com/index.php?page=how_to/maintenance/index.php

    performance = http://v6stangs.com/index.php?page=how_to/performance/index.php

    tips and tricks = http://v6stangs.com/index.php?page=how_to/tips_and_tricks/index.php

    here’s another great site with mixed = http://www.miracerros.com/mustang/index.htm

    and of course the wonderful mustangworld.com = http://www.mustangworld.com/ourpics/fcar/ctips.htm

    misc….

    Mach1 grill install = http://members.cox.net/red9r/Installations/Mach 1 Grill.htm


    anyway… i agree with having a “How-To” section and hope this information will be shared..!!
