Rims on the river is this Saturday in downtown Wilmington North Carolina. Who's going to be there?
Going for a cruze after work with the guys.
Hey guys. I'm looking for the best cams for my 2004 mach 1. I'm not looking to make a lot of power,
Really anything from comp cams, trickflow, or ford performance would be good. The ford performance cams will likely be the most streetable but if you want something more agressive all three companies and others offer a wide range.
I'm going to second Hayden here, I think that's a pretty spot on assessment. HAve you made sure you can get more air in and out with the new cams? Any exhaust or intake plans?

So I have a 03 mustang v6 and I'm planning doing a engine swap. A friend of mine has 5.0L from a 89
I say go for it - and let her rip up the streets!
If it were a track-only or autocross-only car, I'd say do it without hesitation. Street car, the enthusiast side of me says "go for it, that could be awesome". However, there is the bit about Uncle Sam frowning upon the process. That's the only part I'd be wary of
Well if Uncle Sam didn't take such a hefty amount out of my check every week I could have some really nice cars, so he'll be fiiiiiiiiine
My understanding is that the bottom end of those 6 cylinders is pretty stout. Have you considered looking into forced induction? You would be able to make as much or more power than an old 5.0L and given time and patience, you can piece together a kit for relatively inexpensive. In the end if you don't want to keep the car, the cheapest way to a V8 Mustang is probably selling the Mustang that you currently own and then buy a V8 Mustang... Cheapest but least interesting.
I have thought about taking that route, but I'd like to have the sound of the v8. My goal for right now is to have a decent amount of power, sound good and feel good. I want it to at least make more hp than my mach 1. It was my first car, my dad bought it for me and I'd rather transform it into something amazing than sell it.
You sounds like my best friend. He refused to get rid of his beat up and worthless N95 for years, finally his brother killed it for him so that he wouldn't be tormented by it any longer. He wanted to engine swap it first, turbo or supercharge it next, turn it into a drift car, anything to keep his first car. I like it when car guys are excessively nostalgic, good work!
Illegal's just a sick bird. Just pick the shadiest possible shop when you get your car inspected. If you don't have exhaust inspection where you live, you might get by.
How do you change the cover photo? I select a image but it doesn't change.
Where are you doing it from? Desktop?
I'm using the app on my phone. I can't change my profile picture or add any photos.
I know the iOS app is going through an overhaul, so things aren't working quite right there. The Android app works well and the desktop version is probably the better experience right now. If you're using the iOS version of the app, I'd suggest leaving that for a while and trying to post/update with Safari, or a desktop/laptop browser.
I'm using the Android version, I'll try my laptop.
