    Post Links for Mods/Parts

    Ask and ye shall receive(when I'm bored at work):

    -J-Mod --> http://www.tccoa.com/articles/tranny...on/index.shtml Here's ALL the info.

    -Underdrive Pulleys --> http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...product_id=103
    http://www.summitracing.com/parts/su...crown-victoria
    http://www.summitracing.com/parts/tf...crown-victoria
    *REMEMBER- THE WATER PUMP SNOUT CHANGED LENGTH IN 2001. THERE ARE 2 DIFFERENT SETS: 96(93)- 01, AND 01-04(11) MEASURE AND CONFIRM BEFORE ORDERING*
    -Dual Exhaust --> You can go stock: stainless from the junkyard, or order cheap Walker crap like I did from www.Rockauto.com
    Or a full real stainless exhaust --> http://www.stainlessworks.net/ford-crownvic/
    http://www.kooksheaders.com/amfinder...a-v8-4-6-10571

    -3.55, 3.73, or 4.10 gears --> Things I realize: RockAuto has rear gear sets.
    This page: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...ory&path=59_67

    -MSD Coil Packs--> PN: 8241 http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ms...oria/year/1994
    These are the Accel units: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ac...oria/year/1994

    -Grantelli coil plugs --> http://www.summitracing.com/search/m...rder=Ascending
    Or the MSD ones: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...ory&path=59_64

    -Electric Fan --> Source from Junkyard Lincoln Mark VIII or Ford Contour/Merucry Tracer; see: http://www.grandmarq.net/vb/showthre...118#post675118

    -PI Heads --> Source from the junkyard to have them rebuild or YOLO it and throw them on. Lol.
    Here: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...ory&path=59_68

    -PI Intake Manifold --> A bunch of fun: http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustan...olds-9904.html
    Just the FRPP manifold: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...product_id=158
    Complete manifold install kit: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...product_id=165

    -PI Cam --> PI cams can be sourced from the junkyard. Or buy them brand new from: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...ory&path=59_68
    Or here: http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustan...afts-9904.html

    -Larger Throttle Body --> There is some debate on size. Some say the 75mm is too big. That's not what she said. I run the 75mm and have no issues. But you don't have to take my word for it... 70mm: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...&product_id=76
    75mm: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...&product_id=77
    A bunch of different throttle bodies: http://www.americanmuscle.com/99-04-...le-bodies.html
    One more source: http://www.summitracing.com/search/m...rder=Ascending

    -Aluminum Driveshaft --> You can score one from a 00+ CVPI bearing that it actually has one. A more desirable drive shaft is the Metal Matrix Alcoa (MMX/MMA) driveshaft that came in the 1999 and early 2000 CVPI's. These are the same weight as the aluminum ones and, don't quote me, but I've heard they're 30% stronger. Or so. Regardless, you'll want to rebuild the yokes on it because it may have a trillion miles on it like the one I picked up the junkyard.
    Brand new: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...product_id=145

    -Headers --> There a few kits that are direct fit kits for the Aeros. Most are from either Kooks or Stainless Works.
    Stainless Works: http://www.kooksheaders.com/amfinder...a-v8-4-6-10571
    Kooks: http://www.kooksheaders.com/amfinder...a-v8-4-6-10571
    The FRPP shorty headers do fit. HOWEVER, the down pipe/ catalytic converter pipe needs to be modifed for it to fit. Modified as welder/torches/cut. not in that order. http://www.americanmuscle.com/9904-m...y-headers.html

    -Cold Air Intake --> Very debated item as well. If you want one, you can get a K&N one here: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...product_id=155
    A JLT one here: http://jlttruecoldair.com/ZenCart/in...roducts_id=163
    Many choices. Such selection. Very intake: http://www.summitracing.com/search/m...rder=Ascending
    Or do what I did and order the cheap-o kit on eBay for a 01-04 Mustang GT and modify it to fit. I don't have a link for that, sorry.
    Also recommended are the Zip Tubes from 04+ CVPI's. You can source the tubes and the airboxes from the junkyard or by new: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...product_id=161
    For 05+ non-CVPI vehicles: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...product_id=163

    -Ported/Larger Upper Plenum --> There's a ton to choose from: http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustan...olds-9904.html
    http://www.summitracing.com/parts/tf...view/make/ford

    -Nitrous --> Yup. Not my cup of tea, but to each, his/her own. http://www.americanmuscle.com/99-04-...g-nitrous.html
    http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ze...crown-victoria

    -High Performance Water Pump--> http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...ory&path=59_66
    http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustan...umps-9904.html
    http://www.summitracing.com/search/y...rder=Ascending

    -Spark Plugs --> Really. Everyone has their own opinion. I prefer E3's. Others swear by Autolite or MotorCraft. And NGK's. So I'm not going there.

    -Bigger Injectors --> On a Naturally Aspirated (N/A) motor, these really aren't necessary. Only if you go Forced Induction(FI) or larger motor (Bore, Stroke, or both).
    http://www.americanmuscle.com/99-04-...-delivery.html

    -Larger Mass Air Flow(MAF) Sensor/Housing --> Definite need for FI motors, or just to increase the amount of air available to the engine. The 04+ CVPI air boxes have the MAF built into the airbox with a slot style MAF. If you're at the junkyard, make sure it's an 80mm unit. Both 70mm (non-CVPI) and 80mm(CVPI) MAF's are integrated into the airbox. Or just buy a Marauder airbox and MAF.http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...product_id=164
    http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...product_id=161
    http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustan...sors-9904.html

    -Tune to match larger MAF --> OK, so I'm a big fan of stuffing on as many bolt-ons as you can before using a tune. You can have your local speed shop hook you up with a dyno tune.
    Or check this guy Lonnie out at Blue Oval Chips. He speicalizes in Fords and knows TONS about Panthers. http://www.blueovalchips.com/ Just browsing this page is good for you.

    -Higher Stall Torque Converter --> These will help launch your car better by allowing you to use better powerbands in the engine. There are many options here:
    Check out Blue Oval Chips (BOC): http://www.blueovalchips.com/index.p...duct_list&c=14
    Or American Muscle: http://www.americanmuscle.com/tciaut...rtor-9604.html
    Or Summit: http://www.summitracing.com/search/y...rder=Ascending

    -Lightweight Flexplate --> I saw this on ADTR, so if you're changing torque converters, you might want to consider this. Less weight equals less rotational mass: http://www.adtr.net/store/index.php?...product_id=218


    Ok, this is a basic list, but, as with anything, this is far from complete. Links subject to change.
    Thanks.

    With the driveshaft, make sure the yard forklift didn't fork it. Because then it would be forked up.

    Dunno about spacers, but the older box wagon coils raised my rear more than that (b/c old ones were worn out).

    A spring shop could make you custom springs.
