    Rev Limiter On 1998 V6 Mustang

    Does the 1998 3.8L V6 engine have a rev limiter? I know that the auto transmission shifts at 4500, and that the red starts at 5000, but the tachometer goes to 7000. I was wondering how high can you rev it to in first and second gear before it damages the engine? Thanks

There is a bearing that sits next to the gear on the counter shaft and one end of the bearing is tapered. Does anyone know if the tapered end should...

    Engine An Engineering Question On Improved Torque

    So I know that everyone loves to watch your engine twist when you hit that gas. It just speaks raw power. But when I look at that I see potentially wasted torque. Is there a concrete reason why someone couldn't brace your engine and tranny so that they can't twist and flex so that all of that...

When RPMs are falling between 1500-1000 there is a loud rattle coming from under the car somewhere from the front wheel well to the seats.

    Can I Use S550 Exhaust Cams In 11-14?

    Hi all, I've got a new crate engine in my 2011 Coyote. It's got the 2015 cams/Phasers/chains etc. I've been told I need to change back to 11-14 VCT for the engine to run properly. I keep getting bank 1 and 2 intake cams over retarded codes. I've heard that the S550 exhaust cams can be used...

    Those who have done it tell me all about it. Did you upgrade anything other than injectors? Power gains? Did it actually eat through anything? A safer e70 tune worth it? There's tons of rumors out there that are just rumors. Hoping to get real experience an even some tuners words of wisdom if...

    Engine Oil Leak Only When Engine's Cold

    So I recently purchased a 1990 Mustang GT, so far it doesn't leak anything beside a little power steering fluid (or radiator fluid I'm not sure).
