  1. S197 Mustang GT (2011-2014)
    Question is in the title. Nothing wrong with the engine, just has 200K miles. All I want to do is fresh bearings and rings. Can I just pull and replace to factory spec and replace the torque to yield bolts. Does it require a hone with fresh rings? If so, can I do that myself by buying a...
  2. S197 Mustang (2005-2010)
    I just received a re-manufactured trans and it was shipped with 13qt of Pennzoil Platinum Advanced high millage full synthetic. I know that the 5r55s requires Mercon 5...

    Hello, I have a 86 mustang that burns a ton of oil (1 quart every 100 miles or so) and I have since purchased a stock 302 out of an explorer. I currently have it all apart, and while I was looking at it I noticed I probably should get my crankshaft, cylinders, and heads machined (150k mile...

    Hello, I picked up some GT40 heads from a buddy and they came off a good running motor with a bad head gasket.

    I took my front gear case cover off my vortech v3. I have 2 wave washers on each bearing. Im not sure how these wave washers are supposed to be put back in. are they supposed to be stacked like pringles chips or offset so they take up double the room. I tried off set but couldn't get the case...
