    Just picked up my first Fox Body...finally

    I haven't had any time to worry about the power steering lately but did get some time today and managed to find what seemed to be the easiest possible solution to fixing my non-functioning cruise control.

    I haven’t had much time to work on the Fox lately but I can’t complain too much since I have a good excuse: Yesterday I found a little bit of time to replace something small - the PCV valve hose: It’s hard to see in the photo but the old one had some small cracks in the bends. You can kind...

    Dealt with a drained battery recently and the trickle charger came to the rescue again. Still haven’t had time to work on anything else for reasons you’ll see in the end of the latest Vlog. :)

    Tuner Recommendations

    My 2014 GT is mostly stock (dry filter, intake tube, OTA pipes, & GT 500 mufflers). I added the Ford Performance Track Cal “tune” and I’m pretty happy with it. I also don’t have any plans to do any crazy mods any time soon.

    My latest attempt to get the exhaust leak sorted didn't work. I have not been able to get the hardware on the driver side to tighten down correctly so thanks to a recommendation from another Fox owner, I stopped by Tractor Supply and picked up some new hardware that hopefully will do the trick...

    Your coupe looks great. Do you have any engine mods to go along with the 4.10s? 10 sec Coyote sounds pretty bananas. I’m sure that’s a lot of fun.

    So I finally got behind the intake manifold and saw that the PCV valve was super loose. It seemed like it was still in the hose but was disconnected completely from the grommet and the grommet itself came out really easily. I was also able to remove the screen pretty easily with a magnet: I...

    I have mostly used cardboard to catch leaking oil. It’s been little too cold lately, so cardboard might not give me enough insulation.

    Upon further inspection, it looks like I've got an exhaust leak in addition to the oil leak that was not resolved by the RMS being replaced. I tried a quick fix on the exhaust hardware but it didn't do the trick so I'll have to get under the car for a closer look. A couple of days ago , I did...

    Almost a month later, I finally picked the Fox back up yesterday. The 4.10 gears are installed…..along with new 31 spline rear axles, a new rear main seal, a new clutch, a new clutch cable, and the speedometer gear kit. Long story but I think most of you know how it goes. I wasn’t thrilled to...

    Added a new vlog after receiving some new parts a couple of weeks ago: Update since then - a Fox owner on another forum that I frequent gave me the name of a shop. I got a much more reasonable quote from them. I dropped the Fox off at that shop the week before last, to have the 4.10s...

    Major complex/technical upgrade accomplished yesterday…….I replaced the passenger side mirror: It actually did end up taking longer than I expected (shocker) because I didn’t realize I would have to take the inner door panel off to access the connector for the mirror. I'm pretty happy with...

    2014 GT - Unsure on how to proceed w/ mods/customization, etc.

    Chiming back in on my thread to report I still haven’t added a supercharger, haha. I’m still pretty happy with the driving experience since I added the Blowfish Racing bracket, Track Cal, and OTA pipes. I’ve been tempted a few times to try and go test drive the new Mach 1 but it hasn’t happened...

    I wish I had more substantial updates to report on the Fox but work has been really busy and lower temperatures have kept me out of the garage. I got the other light fixture installed in the garage and did a little comparison video though:

    What did you do to your foxbody mustang today?

    The Flowmaster American Thunder you have - that uses the super 44 mufflers, right?
