  1. september notes

    the issue with the Se isn't as bad as I was thinking it was. I think its just running very rich. As noted last night when it was pegging the a/f guage which is set to display a max of 10:1 a/f. otherwise it seems to be running very strong at 12 psi. in the cool air last night it was hitting 13 psi. so its either making more power or the falkens don't grip as well in the cooler weather as it would very easily spin the wheels. man do the rpms shoot up fast when that happens. I also swapped the ...

  2. on a possitive note

    The SVT has been running really strong. The clutch isn't hasn't been acting up as much as it was, but I am doing alot of highway driving with it currently. The fuel pump still acts up but it doesn't seem to be getting worse. Over the weekend I got it washed up and I put the aftermarket wheels back onto it. The FSVT wheels where nice but the tread is gone on the tires. Now two of the KDWs are not great either but I have them in the rear, they have inner edge wear. The back camber isn't as bad ...

  3. the SVT wows and fails all at the same time

    With all this rain I lucked out big time this past weekend. The weather was perfect and I was able to cruise around in the SVT all weekend.

    First the fail. I think the voltage regulator is starting to go. I got flickering dash lights and volt guage. It went away but I can sometimes see the volt guage light flickering. It also drops alot of voltage sometime when coming to a stop and releasing the clutch. Seems to me it might need the wiring fix as all the lights dim when this ...

  4. Carlisle All Ford National

    Yet another good weekend down in Carlisle for the All Ford Nationals. Group was down some this year ubt we all still had a good time. Always great to see people I haven't in a year. Weather was actually bearable this year to move outside of the tent. It was nice to see a heavier Ford Involvement in the show this year.

    And to my suprise the SVT received a 2nd place award in the car show. Was not expecting it at all. The SVT did run great over the weekend, however the intermittant ...

  5. things with the SVT

    well last week I installed the DDM tuning HID kit. Worked out great. I got to try it out in the rain friday night and I was able to see really well.

    Took the SVT to a meet up in NH and it drove great. I have only seen one issue that maybe coming up. I am wondering if there is a problem with the alternator/voltage regulator. sometime the charging voltage will drop to 14 volts. other time it just up towards 15 volts. when it nead 15 volts the guages in the guage pod start flickering ...
