I agree. Makes me wonder how even bigger tires look in real life when they already look huge in pics.

Yeah, I took the picture and was let down. I figured they would look wider than that in the image.

Edit: treed
Very Nice I had the triple gauge cluster on the dash on my last mustang. Did Oil pressure, Fuel Pressure, and Volts.

All the ones ive seen not last are on DDs and are typically over used. If its a weekend thing you shouldn't have any issues.

I got bored two nights ago and decided that she didn't really need to have an axle any more...




So then I replaced the upper control arm bushing in the top of the axle housing. This is much easier with the axle out of the car.

Then I figured, I might as well paint all of this bare steel...

I love that. It's the little things that go a long way. If I keep my car for a longer period of time, I will be doing this when I get a DD.

I've debated on which spark plugs to go with for awhile. I never could find much info on e3's spark plugs on this forum. I know they're 1 piece, which is a plus. I found more positive reviews for e3's than bad reviews so I figured I would give it a shot and be a bit of a guinea pig, for this forum anyway. They are usually between $8-$10 a piece. I ended up finding it for $4.95 a piece at AutoPartsExpress.com Performance Spark Plugs on sale! AutoPartsExpress.com plus $8.99 shipping. Even with the shipping added on, it's only $48.59 for all 8 shipped. I'm not out a huge amount if they don't work.

I'm also going to do the impact method that a lot of the 3v truck guys use when taking them out. A lot of people have had success with that. I have 147,000 on the original plugs (as far as I know) so it would be quite a feat lol

Im curious to see how those plugs work for you, I never see anyone run those. Ive used e3's in lawn mowers but never a car. I just replaced my plugs with brisk plugs and mine were also the original plugs (as far as I know) with 125xxx miles. Surprising only one broke off so you might get lucky, that is if you dont use the impact method.

I have my doubts on the impact method, but I've talked with people that swear by it.

Ive seen it successfully done a lot on youtube, granted its youtube, but I think itll work. I think the key is getting the engine warm before you work on it and an impact just helps.

I'm going to run a can of seafoam through it the week before and spray some stuff into the wells for a couple days to try and help break it up.

I ran seafoam but I didnt spray the spark plug wells with anything. Whether it helped or not I cant say but I will tell you that all but one came out cleanly. The combustion chambers still looked like hell but I think it helped clean the little stuff around the plugs and I saw one valve and it looked pretty clean. Our cars suck in oil like theres no tomorrow. When I did my charge motion plates, the stock plates and intake runners were so damn caked with oil/crap and Id like to clean them someday I just dont know what to use.

Is that bracket held on by double sided tape? If so you may want to consider other methods... mine never held no matter what. You are already drilling a hole in the dash mind as well tape some screws or something in.
