96 cougar j-mod
Well, my buddy just took my 95lx for a spin, and now he wants me to do the J-mod on his 96 3.8L cougar. Is there anything I need (or don't need) to do that would be different from the 95? I think the 96 has the updated accumulators IIRC.
I'm thinking all I need is:
updated 1-2 upper spring (blue)
2 seperator plate gaskets
I think that's it. If I do need the 1-2 and 2-3 accum., please let me know as I'm gonna order this prob. tomorrow. Also, would drilling it out to the 300 hp setting be bad for the 3.8, or does it matter? I have my 4.6 LX at that setting, and it's what he wants as far as shift qualities go. Thanks in advance.
These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.
