Well, little update folks. Got sick of a vibration I was having, and my alignment constantly being off after 2 go-arounds by Ford. I put a set of StopTech stock size Cryo slotted rotors on the front with Akebono pads, and the bite is amazing! Believe it or not now that they are breaking in it stops close to the Cougar, which has the Cobra brakes front/rear. For the rear I put factory Motorcraft rotors and Wearever Gold pads. All the brakes are breaking in evenly and bite really well and it made a big difference in stopping power over the crap slotted/cross drilled chinese garbage the previous owner installed. Upon changing the rotors I was greeted with a failed passenger Wheel Hub assembly, so I had to overnight one from a Motorcraft warehouse. Got that put on and everything cinched up, only thing left is to put on my new Stainless braided brake hoses, and have the system flushed with my new ATE Dot 4 TYP 200 Fluid.
Should stop on a dime now! Finally got a mod list together for it, and here we go:
- Air Silencer Delete
- 3.73 TL Differential
- Dynotech 4" or 3.5" Aluminum driveshaft
- Magnaflow 2.25" rear mufflers.
- SCT XCal 4 Tuner
- IMRC Delete
- Circle D 3800 Stall Triple disc Torque Converter
- JMOD (Heavy)
- Stock FN-10 Motorcraft Trans Cooler
- Mercon V Fluid change
- Higher flow fuel pump and injectors
- E85 Tune
- Bilstein Rear Shocks with Jay's Mounts
- ADDCO 1.25" Front and Rear Sway bars.
All stock take off parts will be stored to keep the car readily able to return to stock. You just never know. So the fun is just beginning and I just got promoted at work, so this should all start happening soon once I take a trip to RobertP
