    Good to see it move under it's own power. Sounds like it idles a little high.

    Nice. Glad you got that camera. Gotta say, I thought you would sound different for some reason. The '92 is sweet. Seems to move out real well. How does it feel/sound compared to an NPI 4.6? The stock AOD 1-2 shift sends shivers up my spine. J-mod in the future?

    yea it does idle a little high......ivan said it kept stalling for him, so he turned the throttle body screw......funny it doesn't stall for me lol

    greg: my friend joe is a cop and he drives a 07 vic and he said it felt the same powerwise......feels about the same to me too

    doubt i will mod the trans, it's got 166,000 miles on it......when it dies then i'll do something about it........this is my beater car to keep the lincolns off the road in the winter, i have been trying to keep it low budget, cause i'm not sure how long i will keep it.......if it proves reliable enough, then it will be kept........so far not so good, 3 of the window regulators broke in one day lol

    If it feels the same as an '07 power-wise, that's pretty impressive of your HO. Seems failed window regulators and Panthers go hand-in-hand. Time for another how-to vid?

    That driving impression makes some logical sense. Isn't the Mustang 5.0 a bit torquier than the cop 4.6? Add that to the '92 being somewhat lighter, and I wouldn't be surprised for it to feel rather decent, especially for a stock-parts effort. Driving around in the '81 now that it's going and insured again, I'm a little surprised how nice that junky little engine feels (being basically a Mustang motor with Explorer cam swap).

    believe it or not, that trans is one of the best shifting AODs I've ever driven. Its smoother and quieter than most. Also I didn't think the Jmod applied to AODs, only the AODE and 4R70w family? Would be nice if it does, I hate that 1-2 slopshift. Both of my AOD cars do it, and I would love for that to go away.

    Shame I had to drive you around in the MK8 and not the POS when you were in. I think you would have liked the way it shifted. And yes, the J-mod is not for the AOD. Maybe I should have said "TransGo-mod"? Been driving SUVs and minivans for too long it seems.

    Just watched the vid again, and I don't hear the first gear whine almost every AOD/AODE/4R70 car I have driven has had.

    IIRC, the B&M kit firmed up my shifts just driving around, but was still sloppy, slow, and loose shifting gears at heavy or WOT. Pretty much opposite of what I wanted. Was planning on going with a manual for the longest time and just gave in and had someone go nuts on the AOD. It served me well for many miles, and none of them were easy miles.

    Scott, is that an open diff? You were chirping all over the place, lol. Planning on going LSD before the snow flies? I know I'm in the minority here, but I like Panthers to be nice and quiet. I wouldn't change a thing about the exhaust note.

    Still shifts pretty good, actually, though it has never in my experience spun tires whilst shifting except when under heavy throttle on wet pavement (speedo suddenly shot up 10mph without the car accelerating).

    Interestingly, SilverFox on Click Click Racing says the only TransGo product he likes is their governors, and that less since he saw one crack. Nod that I'd object to modding my own governor if I had half to three-quarters of a notion just what to do to it.
