    Brembo 4P/6P & Handling

    I did the 4 piston swap on my car a few years back myself. The nice thing about that swap is that it's all "plug & play," OEM GT brake lines will bolt up to the calipers and the calipers go right on the spindle. You just need the rotors, calipers, pads and hardware. I think my car has great...

    Does anyone know of any common Key off-Engine off power drains on '05-09 Mustangs?

    So, been awhile but I wanted to update this for anyone else who might come across it. Over the winter I pulled out the original Shaker 500 head unit with the integrated CD changer (the radio looked terrible plus I had a sneaking suspicion the changer was killing the battery) and replaced it with...

    Is there an aftermarket equivalent to the S197 factory mufflers?

    I would go that route but- there's nothing locally, we have no u-pull yards within 2 hours, and everything online is too much money. Out of curiosity's sake, what is your zip and about how much do those mufflers weigh? I'm guessing shipping would be $$$ Plus- the offset/offset configuration of...

    Is there an aftermarket equivalent to the S197 factory mufflers?

    This past spring I put my OE axle backs on my car, which has long tube headers and a catted shorty H pipe, just to see how it would sound-- and I am blown away by them. The car sounds incredible, is still fairly loud, and yet has about half the cabin drone I had with most of the aftermarket axle...

    Clunking end links

    Honestly my car makes so many noises going over bumps, this one probably bothers me the least. And yes they are stock LCA's. At the time I didn't want to spend the cash for GT500's. My end links do have zerks but they are basically stock replacements.

    Clunking end links

    I would think if any front end components were that worn, it would have been caught during my yearly inspection. I replaced the front arms and ball joints about 38K ago just because of that, also I my GT500 strut mounts and struts have less than 20K on them. I dunno maybe it is because of the...

    Clunking end links

    I have had this problem for years, replaced the end links, and still get it. I don't know for sure if I get it on left hand turns but definitely on right turns- if I go into a sharp turn at a good speed, on my initial turn-in I get a clunk from my driver's side front wheel area and I'm pretty...

    Where does extra sound insulation make the most difference?

    That surprises me, because that tar stuff is sticky as hell.

    Exhaust hangers

    Just wondering, but are those tailpipes all one piece? It looks like the tailpipes have been welded on. If so they will have to be cut to be installed, in which case I'd definitely recommend taking to to an exhaust shop.

    Where does extra sound insulation make the most difference?

    I put that 10 mm thick foam all over the front floor and tunnel, you can fit it under the carpet if you pull out the factory fiber mat stuff.

    Resonator placement

    I just found out this year that factory mufflers with longtubes sounds incredible and cuts the drone down to barely above stock levels.

    Where does extra sound insulation make the most difference?

    My job was moved, from being 10 min from my house to a 20 min highway commute. I've taken the car a few times and between putting factory mufflers back on and the sound deadening, it's much nicer to drive on the highway now. I need to do the doors someday.

    Getting back into a S197???

    I'd look on one of the Ford parts sites like Tasca, they have diagrams in the part categories that (usually) make it pretty easy to find what you're looking for.

    Headers Install

    I kept my stock mounts and shimmed them up 1/4", don't know if I needed the clearance but I did it anyway. I have had no clearance issues whatsoever. Stock mounts have 106K on them now and still doing good!

    Reman 4-piston Brembos on 05-14 GT

    Trust me I wouldn't be driving it far on a compact spare.

    Reman 4-piston Brembos on 05-14 GT

    You can find spares from newer cars on ebay...some say they are 18", I'm actually not even sure if any of them are 19", but they are $300-400 so I guess I'll just take my chances with my 17" spare. I suppose if I got a flat on a the front I'd just have to put the spare on the back and put a rear...

    Reman 4-piston Brembos on 05-14 GT

    I looked at getting a 19" spare but they are freaking expensive.

    What have you done to your mustang today?

    Took my car out for a drive yesterday (it was 75 degrees) with the OE mufflers, first drive since I put them on. Man I should have done this years ago. Car still sounds damn amazing but is not so loud and most importantly, seems like it has basically no drone inside at all. And that's with long...

    Reman 4-piston Brembos on 05-14 GT

    If you mean the caliper to the spindle, it just uses the original bolts.

    Does anyone know of any common Key off-Engine off power drains on '05-09 Mustangs?

    I've had LED's in my map lights since probably the second year I owned my car and I've had it for 12 years, so I dunno. Those draw so little current I can't imagine them draining the battery but who knows. Now that I installed a new head unit I would be curious to see if it's better but I don't...

    Headers Install

    I've done it three times so what does that say about me :Big Laugh: The initial install is the most difficult. After that pulling the headers out and putting them back in is easy. Pull the starter, support the engine and pull the motor mounts, disconnect the steering shaft, pull the dipstick...

    Does anyone know of any common Key off-Engine off power drains on '05-09 Mustangs?

    That sucks. Mine was good up until a few years ago- I never added any electrical equipment during that time so I don't know what the issue is. I just have to disconnect the battery if the car is gonna sit for more than a week which generally isn't a big deal.

    Reman 4-piston Brembos on 05-14 GT

    I just looked back at what I ordered, I used 2013 GT front brake hoses but they are the same. I didn't have any problems mounting them at all.

    Reman 4-piston Brembos on 05-14 GT

    What do you mean by square? I just used regular GT front lines on mine, they bolted up to the Brembos with no issue.
