  1. Most of you are aware that I changed my rotors and pads in early summer this year to the EBC Slotted/Dimpled rotors and EBC Redstuff pads. One of the requirements for Pennsylvania state inspection is the inspection and measurement of brakes and pads. I have probably put about 7-8K miles on my car since the change and I was very pleased with the results of the inspection yesterday. Both front and rear pads measured at 12/32, which is still very good. It is also nice to know that all the pads are wearing evenly. Thumbs up to EBC! One thing that I found funny was that my General tires have 1/32 less tread on the front than on the rear....darn that front wheel drive basis! Or could be I have gotten a little to heavy footed leaving from a stop on occasion????
  2. Ford Nationals 2018-Carlisle

    Hard to believe it is time to start thinking about The Ford Nationals in June of 2018. Just wanted to reminder everyone about the 20% discount if you register before Dec. 31st. Also just heard that BPD will be attending again this year. And we are hoping to have a good SHO presence in the downtown parade this year, so I plan on signing up for the parade, hopefully those of you who are going to be there will also do the parade. Now, go register and save the 20%!
  3. Ford Nationals 2018-Carlisle

    Booked into Motel 6, looks like it is very close to the Holiday Inn Express. Mike we should be able to hang outside the show without too much hassle!
  4. Ford Nationals 2018-Carlisle

    No luck, no rooms available.....
  5. Ford Nationals 2018-Carlisle

    Will try to book into the Holiday Inn Express sometime this weekend. Almost sure I would like to stay down for the entire event.

  7. Power Loss After Catback

    I believe you are incorrect about not needing back pressure. We have heard too many times that the modern engines and computers need back pressure to work correctly. Not sure I understand it, but seems to hold true. There has been too many times that people have reduced back pressure in several different engines and have seen performance decrease. Kinda like that none of the aftermarket CAIs work to improve performance. The best track times always come with the stock air box.....
  8. Looking for advice

    Dump your CAI and go back to stock, most CAI's reduce power and speed. If you want proven tunes that work without harm, chose either Livernois or Unleashed. Both are very good and proven winners. Don't even consider any others.
  9. Power Loss After Catback

    Apparently you reduced back pressure with the catback and this caused a loss of power. I had the same thing happen with my 98 F-150. Never knew the newer engines required a certain amount of back pressure to perform correctly. It also may be you just need the tune to be customize to take in the catback.
  10. New Nebraska member

    Glad you've joined us. The color of your PI is one of the more popular for Pennsylvania State Police.
  11. So hopefully some other host will see the stupidity of Photobucket and discover they can increase traffic and business with some inexpensive hosting.
  12. Ford performance exhaust

    I really like how quiet the car is with the stock exhaust, and none of the aftermarket exhausts show any improvement in performance. The new downpipes are the real secret to increased performance with these cars. That said, I said I will replace the stock exhaust with a Borla when new exhaust is needed. Since Shelby picked Borla for his Shelby Mustangs, I figure if it is good enough and picked by Shelby, then it is good enough for me.
  13. Good luck with your search for the glass. Be sure to keep us updated.
  14. I bet if you take the measurements on a 14 you will find they are the same as your 11. And it wouldn't have to be a 14 SHO mirror, I am fairly certain that all models use the same size mirrors.
  15. Ford performance exhaust

    The Ford exhaust is made by Borla, but is fairly pricey.
  16. Didn't realize that they changed the rear view mirrors. I do know when I broke the glass in the mirror of my 98 F-150, I couldn't purchase a replacement glass, had to purchase the entire mirror...and it wasn't inexpensive. If I remember correctly around $250.00. But that mirror did have the turn signal lights in the mirror.
  17. 2017 Ford Map/Navi Update(s)....

    Just received another flyer about the new map update that is available for the car. Again, since I updated last year, it will be a few more before I update again. Besides, I have a orphaned Mustang GT that needs some love and attention!
  18. South Florida SHO lurker

    Yes, great find. Glad you joined us. Hope you enjoy your time here!
  19. Gotta love it! Just reading your last post will have me smilin' all day!
  20. JMS BoostMax

    Never heard of this.....
  21. MKS EcoBoost from the PNW (Portland)

    Glad you joined us! Hope you enjoy your time here. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have or encounter with the car. Sure one of us can help!
  22. Why does that not surprise me???? LOL I guess the audio guys knew only too well what would happen had you had full power at Carlisle!
  23. 3.5 eco boost acceleration problems

    It would be best to not guess and chase the problem. Get a dealer to hook it up and see what codes are being thrown.
  24. Power Pack specific VIN?

    And if it the performance package car, it will NOT have a spare tire but an electric tire pump.
  25. No reason to do intake or exhaust, neither have shown any performance improvements. Best results have been with the stock air box (stock or modded a bit) and the only exhaust mod that works to improve performance is new downpipes. So you made a wise decision to go the route you are going.
