    The rule of thumb I recall following was 20 ft/lbs and no more than a half-turn on the torque. I followed that on my E7s and TecNickal's GT40 heads. I know my E7s were not decked, and I cannot recall...

    Essentially these: Amazon Link

    I’m running a similar style set in my ‘97 and they’ve been working good for a long time. Only thing you might have to do is change your turn signal flasher if you’re...

    Can't say I've done anything with LED headlights, just the tails.

    Small anecdote, but I usually recommend a relay upgrade first and make sure the lamps are actually aimed where they belong. I've...

    If its happening in the third row, I'd check the window seals and the roof rack where it screws into the roof.

    Apparently that was an issue on my '87 prior to my ownership. The roof rack screws...

    If you’re considering front shocks in your future, the spring doesn’t need to come out. The shock simply passes through the center. Two bolts on the bottom of the control arm hold it in down there,...

    If you're speaking of the air suspension compressor, there's a switch in the trunk to turn it off. It's supposed to be switched off before lifting the vehicle. The ECM has no control over the air...

    The front is a little off after having new control arms fitted, but it was torqued correctly with the weight on them. The rear springs are sagging. I went back through some old photos to double check...

    Since Thanksgiving is coming up and I'm headed out of town to see family, I took the car in for tires on Saturday since I'd run the Kumhos down below 4/32nd all the way around. While some may argue...

    The front clunk might be sway bar end links. I was dealing with a clunk on bumps despite a tight front end. The end links had just enough slop to be noisy.

    Best the '87 ever managed was 21 MPG prior to dual exhaust and HO conversion with a 3.27 open rear gear. I don't think it's done any better than 18 since being converted, but I haven't done any...

    Cheapie Dorman clone. You can use it, just keep an eye on it. Some folks have had issues getting them to seal properly around some of the intake ports.

    F8AZ-9424-AAA was the part number for the replacement suite for the nPI intake. It includes the revised aluminum crossover along with the replacement bracketry for the alternator.

    Now if any of...

    That class action settlement was completed in 2005. Ford extended coverage on the intakes for up to seven years after the initial purchase of the vehicle. In both instances, there’s no recourse for...

    I think that generation of Focus was a conventional automatic. I believe the DCT troublemaker came along in 2012 with that new generation of Focus.

    Yup, that’s supposed to be everything they need to clear. :D

    Just waiting for them to ship. Seems like there’s a lead time on them (I ordered mine through Holley), so that’s the only slow down....

    I plan to attempt to use a set of these under my ‘87 since I’m fitting shorty headers and redoing the whole exhaust back. They will be cut down and fitted for wagon side exits if they fit worth a...

    I added dual visors with Homelink to my ‘97 years ago. Absolutely love having them with the convenience factor they offer.

    Always fun times with this car. :D It was definitely nice to finally not see it in an assumed service position. I think it's been about two-ish years since the heavy drivetrain work started and I...

    I've done fluid and filter on a handful of these cars, several of which were definitely a little "past due". Last one was a '99 CV that had a torque converter shudder and what I got out was nasty...

    It's stuff like that which makes me feel better about my own cars, even if subjectively they're also not in the greatest shape.

    Intake manifold crossover is a place to look. If it has the all plastic one, that might be of concern. If it has the later aluminum coolant passage on it, it’s fine.

    Also, check the coolant...

    Usually the conventional, frame type blades fit fine under the hood. It's usually those beam blades that have issues from time to time fitting properly.

    Regarding where blades are made, most I've...

    U-Haul still wants to know what you’re hauling, so I told them a Ram 50 (secretly plus 100). Luckily the place I rented from is a local joint and I know the owner, so he had half a clue what was...

    Whew, long day for myself and the Marquis. Made two round trips from Evans to Waynesboro (roughly 40 miles each way). It should have been one single movement and I shouldn't have towed a whole Dodge....
