    Oil Pan Clearance Issue with ARP Main Studs

    Well I just broke one of the bolt holes on my stock oil pan because I didn't realize the ARP main studs I used are quite a bit longer than stock. I searched around the site and only found issues with stud girdles which required the main studs and the pan to both be ground down. Is that how...

    Looking for the ideal blower setup for new build.

    I'm in the process of finally finishing the new motor on my car and was looking for some input on the ideal supercharger setup. First I'll say the car is a street car first and foremost, and will be a nice weather daily driver, that I can take to the strip when I'm in the mood. The new motor is...

    4.2 stroker rod orientation?

    I'm starting to finally put together my 4.2 motor and I'm stumped on which way the SCAT rods go on. They have a chamfer on one side only and I'm not sure which cylinders week have the chamfer facing the front of the motor. I tried going bearing tabs up for all of the rods and I'm not sure if...

    Wheels Needing Larger Studs?

    So I've come across a deal for the FR500C wheels that I really think I can't pass up. They are Fikse Profil 10 3 piece wheels used on the FR500C race cars. Everywhere that sells them says the stock Mustang wheel studs won't work and they require .625" studs. Being that the wheel will have the...

    Oh, Snap!

    Finally pulled my motor out today, took a few pictures. The crankshaft snapped right in between the first two cylinders. Found it was turned .020 by the paint on the crank, and the car had maybe 15k on it when it blew. Lesson learned, don't buy a reman motor from a random engine depot. New...

    Steering Wheel Options

    I was looking into upgrading my steering wheel (I have a '90) to something a little more modern and possibly a little smaller and thicker. Retaining a somewhat OEM look is a huge factor for me in this. I understand that the early model and later model cars are not easily interchangeable so I'm...
