Re: New Cougar Owner (Introductions and plea for help)

Sounds good. It is still good to have a bit of a long term plan for some things though. You may want to switch to an overdrive which affects rear gear choices if you were changing anything like that.

Re: New Cougar Owner (Introductions and plea for help)

Hi Scott. It would be a good idea to sit down with the kids and have a chat about what the end goal is with the car. If you are staying stock the 14's will be great but if you want to upgrade your brakes you may need a bigger rim. Would hate to see you have to buy new tires again in a year if you de...

Re: How can I make 300HP

Legendarylimeaz how tall are your tires? Just a heads up. There are a couple valve bodies available now that make the kickdown cable adjustment a little less critical on the aod. I believe one of them is made by tci, it's worth taking a look at. I don't have an aod but I've been looking into it.
