  1. To Dye or Not

    Hey thanks for the input guys. That's a cool color interior Jet445. I like it. I was able to get a refund from Damien at Dashes Direct for the door panels because they simply did not match. I was talking to Gene Painter and will just get him to redo my original door panels. I'm just waiting for the sample colored vinyl to arrive to confirm the color..I like the suggestion to take a sample of my interior to a paint store and have them match up the "dark red" in a vinyl paint and try it out. If they can match it up at least close then I'll keep the interior dark red. Frankly I do like the red because it's a different color. I talked to TMI and they say 5 weeks for them to make a full set of dark red seat covers and same for Gene on the door panels. If I can find a store to make up some vinyl paint I'll be very happy!! I'll keep you guys posted.
  2. To Dye or Not

    Hi All, Does anyone on here have any experience dyeing the interior trim on your mustangs? How did things turn out? How does it look and are you happy with the results?Here’s my predicament I ordered new deluxe door panel in 3D Red from Dashes Direct with matching red carpeting on the bottom of the door panel for my Mach 1.The Red is more of a Maroon as opposed to dark red.So it’s a different colour red. The seat covers from TMI are dark red but very dark aswell and slightly different than the door panels. Now both of these are completely different red from the rest of the interior which is a brighter red and not Maroon. So I was thinking about ordering a set of seat covers in black from TMI and dyeing the rest of the interior black to match. So there’s no mismatch in the reds.

    Hey Bob, sorry for the delayed response. I’ve been extremely busy with work, just got married and honeymoon. Do you still need Dizzy?

    Hmmm - not sure - I can try to find out
  5. FREE...FMX Transmission...

    I have an FMX trans for free to anyone. Was rebuilt 1000 miles ago with a 2800 TCS Stall converter.My zip is 98230 which is Washington.

    Hi Bob , do you need a pic of my unit?
  7. WTB 69 or 70 351W Motorcraft Distributor

    Hi Bud, I have a factory 351w dizzy and it has a Pertronix in it already. It was all custom curved 2500 mile when my engine was rebuilt. Let me know if you're still looking for one
  8. Hi guys, I just installed a Paxton SC 69 Mach with 351w and now I need clearance under my hood in order to close it.I need to cut a hole for clearance and want to install a B9 scoop. My Mach 1 doesn't have the "pie shaped" holes with the cross bar but has a large stamped hole covered over with metal that the original scoop bolts to.It looks like that piece is held in place with putty. So is it just a matter of taking off the factory Mach 1 scoop and prying the piece that covers the stamped hole?
  9. Steel Bellhousing

    Hi all, I'm contemplating putting a steel bellhousing in my Mach 1 and was looking for some opinions of if its worth it or not? I mean do clutches really blow up if I buy a good quality clutch like Valeo or Spec? My 351W dynoed at 435 hp and 430tq at the flywheel. And it's looking like I'm going to install a Paxton Novi 1200 this summer. So what do you think?
  10. Cryogenic Treatment for eng and trans?

    Hey Barnett468, you're right! I just checked out McLeod's website and they sell a T5 with a 26 spline input shaft 2.97 1st and a .63 5th OD for $1995.00. So I think a nice gear set like the Astro Z Spec and tightened up with new bearings and syncos will easily handle the 435 tq at the flywheel on my car..I just won't do no 4000 rpm clutch dumps...
  11. Cryogenic Treatment for eng and trans?

    OH yeah? Really? I didn't know that Mccleod made T5s! I'm gonna to google that right now and report back.. Thanx !,
  12. Cryogenic Treatment for eng and trans?

    Yeah that's true Barnett468. I'm looking at upgrading the internals with a Astro Z Spec Kit with 2:97 1st gear. I also want to talk to Walt at ProMotion Performance regarding some better internals or one of his better built T5s. I looked in a TKO but the cost is prohibitive due to the fact that I'll need to change all the other accessories also i.e.: clutch, bell, cross member etc.I want to pull the trigger within the next couple weeks.
  13. Cryogenic Treatment for eng and trans?

    I was also planning on getting micro polishing ($400)done before the Cyro ($350)I'm thinking - if this will help strengthen my T5 to take some abuse then it will be worth it.And it might also help a lot of others who are also wrestling with the age old question of "How do I upgrade my T5 to take more that than 350tq without breaking the bank?"It'll still be half the price of a TKO500 or 600 plus bell,cross member etc..etc..My Mach puts out 435hp / 435lbtq at the flywheel and I was toying with the idea of adding Nitrous. I don't do clutch dumps or power shifts...But I don't know...I'm not sure yet..I also just went up to 15" Magnums from 14"s with MT275x60x15 Drag radials on the rears and 28x6x15 Sportsman on the fronts.I can't wait to try the car out.But we've seen a ton of friggin snow up here in Vancouver so I haven't had a chance to take the car out.
  14. Cryogenic Treatment for eng and trans?

    Apparently they'll last 2-3times longer because the wear resistance is improved. They won't warp and when it's time to machine them the finish on them is second to none...Pretty cool.
  15. Cryogenic Treatment for eng and trans?

    Yeah, I'm going to try it out on my T5 to see if it make a noticeable difference. My buddy will tear it down then I ship it out for the process my buddy will reassemble it and we will see what kind of a difference it makes....Truth be told I'm kinda excited about it.
