@  BlackBetty : (21 December 2014 - 08:39 AM) what are u having to fix Steve? Mine saves me money vs costs on my charts
@  steveyjr1982 : (21 December 2014 - 01:36 AM) Car is getting old and tired.
@  steveyjr1982 : (21 December 2014 - 01:24 AM) Tired of dumping money into this thing.
@  BlackBetty : (20 December 2014 - 07:47 AM) See if you can pick up a used set of TOG headers then. ive read tons of great things about them when fitment is a concern
@  Sapias Lupus : (19 December 2014 - 09:25 AM) But then again with the SD I've only heard of the fitment issues once or twice and just needing a new flex, So I probably will go with the SD. We'll see.
@  Sapias Lupus : (19 December 2014 - 09:16 AM) (Car came with Dp and Plog from PO, or I would have had headers rather)
@  Sapias Lupus : (19 December 2014 - 09:15 AM) I mean I've already got a plog and dp from zzp but I am going upgrade to headers, and I have utilities to make them work, my only issue is fitment being off and all the other glorious problems said to come with SD, so I was thinking Pacesetter because they are slip and fitted right and the Y is fixed via ZZP (review of leaks but I can just just weld them up.
@  BlackBetty : (19 December 2014 - 07:05 AM) go with speed daddy's. I do everything myself so i went plog/pem.. but would rather have the headers anyday
@  Sapias Lupus : (19 December 2014 - 05:35 AM) I mean so then I don't need clamps and I won't get leaks.
@  Sapias Lupus : (19 December 2014 - 05:24 AM) Pacesetters or Speed Daddys worth it if I have a welder available and an expert to do it for free?
@  novascotiaGS : (18 December 2014 - 01:50 AM) When is the new calendar going to be again available anyone know?
@  Sapias Lupus : (17 December 2014 - 04:01 AM) I went ahead and PMed you, I feel you know the roots of what the motor can handle with the gen 5 from your experience. I'd like to talk more extensively if thats cool.
@  Crazyguy03 : (17 December 2014 - 03:57 AM) it wasnt until I added a S1X that i could take the timing all the way up to 21* no kr
@  Crazyguy03 : (17 December 2014 - 03:56 AM) then I went to a gen5 and FSIC and N* then I was able to run a 3.0 WITH decent timing
@  Crazyguy03 : (17 December 2014 - 03:56 AM) from there i added headers and 1.9s
@  Crazyguy03 : (17 December 2014 - 03:55 AM) lol its hard to understand and remember but I can say I remember where I started it was a bone stock motor with just an intake, 3.4, and tune
@  Sapias Lupus : (17 December 2014 - 03:48 AM) I'll pm you.
@  Sapias Lupus : (17 December 2014 - 03:46 AM) Oh sh*t wait are you saying you ran a 3.4 on a gen 5 with nothing but intake and tune lol and didn't "need" an IC until you dropped again?
@  Sapias Lupus : (17 December 2014 - 03:41 AM) I'm not looking at SSICs I am planning to get the FS. I just don't exactly get what you're saying with the guys with the gen 3 running 3.25 because I'm not getting a SS. IGNORE THIS I think I done goofed
@  ejguillot : (17 December 2014 - 02:03 AM) Hi guys

Step 1: Loosen Dogbones with 14mm (sorry no pic of this)

Step 2: Move dogbones out of the way and reinstall bolt

Step 3: Get out some WD-40 and get to sprayin'
Posted Image

Step 4: Tighten the bolt as seen in the picture above and it should flip 90* quite easily, and this will be the final result

Ive got mine in the freezer. I hear it helps shrink the rubber a little. Plus mine are new and never used ones. Ill use lubricant also though.

edit: I used dish soap as the lube. And freezing it helped with breaking apart the small amount of glue they put in there. I had bought new ones and then found out about this trick. So, I did it to the new ones. It worked great. The engine sits still instead of flopping around so much.

This will also help if you sometimes have a "clunk" when you go from park to reverse or park to drive. The GTP was clunking. I noticed the motor was flopping in the wind. So I flipped them. The mounts were 160k miles and worn out. This cured that.

They really should say "spin the torque mount". But they also call polyurethane mounts solid. Im a Mustang guy and when i hear "solid" i think of a unit that is made from steel and has zero give.

Seems to be a good time of year for this mod. Thinking of doing the same to my '04's original mounts this weekend too.
Good luck with yours 03

Okay, I've searched high and low and cannot for the life of me find the square dog bone mounts except for stupid aftermarket poly. My passenger mount broke clean in half as it is with the stock rubber. Last thing I need is a more firm mount, but I do need new square torque strut mount bushings. Anybody have a part number or link? Not even RockAuto sells them.

I had looked into this too and you have to buy the whole assembly:

I ended up just getting the poly's from zzp.  The vibration is a noticeable at first and only at idle, but you get used to it

Welcome to 2013 bro.

Didn't even see the date.  Not like this info is outdated anyway.  Still only available in the whole assembly. Just thought I'd try to help someone
