    Hello I got me a engine out of a 90s f-150 and I’m not sure exactly what year but I was wanting to do a turbo build with it and I’ve heard the stock engine can hold it as long as I’m not over 450 hp if I rebuild the bottom end with the stock crank and pistons and rods and do gt40 heads and an...

    Fox Brand New Lifter Ticking

    I just replaced a questionable lifter from my engine with a Summit Racing SUM-HT220 lifter, and it is ticking. It was soaked in oil overnight before installing. I can very easily press down the lifter by pushing down on the rocker arm. Oil pressure is 19 at hot idle, but that should be more than...

    Engine 2000 RPM Vibration

    I've got a vibration between 2000-2400 RPMs that gets worse with clutch engaged. It does it in all gears going any speed, or revving. It gets worse with load too. Not quite sure what it could be. I can feel it the most when I rest my hand on the shifter. Balancer? Clutch plate? Trans input...

    Engine Pull the pistons and crank or leave them?

    So pulled motor and tranny. Eventually going turbo but was trying to maintain somewhat of a budget. Cylinders still look good but motor was filthy. So.... do all seals put it back together or pull it apart and do bearings and rings etc. Cranck has zero play. 87 forged internals.

    Engine Dreaded exhaust/ fuel smell inside car

    I know this is one of the more common issues with these cars, but it’s driving me absolutely crazy lately. I rebuilt my 302 about 5 years ago, using the gt40p setup. The car runs flawless when I do drive it, which is maybe once a month. Within the last 6 months though there is a noticeable...

    Engine misfire during use

    Hey, recently I bought an 04 mustang with the 3.9 v6. It had been parked for about two years so it needed quite a bit of work done to it. I won't talk much about the PCM issue that I had, but once the car started I ended up running into an issue that pretty much made it undrivable. When I would...
