I've got several sets of HO pistons, if you want to go that route.

Pay for the ride, you can have a set of 'em ;)

Nah, in the summer, there's no real need to warm it up. But, you do you ;)

I wouldn't ever "warm up" a vehicle in the summer.

Start it, let it idle for about 30 seconds, then drive gently for a mile or two.

Then again, my last three explorers all had over 175K on them when I got 'em.

The 98 now has over 250, the Mountaineer I had before is over 300, and the '06 I've had since March is almost at 180.

In the winter, I let em run for a minute or two.

Anything else is just wasting gas.


Have had several "pros" tell me that, and have no found no evidence that refutes their knowledge. ;)

Most in-an-out "general" places ain't gonna touch a fuel system overhaul such as what a 32 year old car like yours needs.

The money is in the 20 minute oil changes, the brake jobs, and airing up of tires and lubing the suspension..

The bigger shops CAN pull codes, but how many Fox cars do you reckon they see?

I'd bet not very fucking many.

Burn it down, it's your car, IDGAF.

FWIW though, the fuel tank and lines are easy to take down and clear out.

What relevance that has with actors working on brand new cars on TV shows is completely fuckin' beyond me, however.

Oh, they have a hellcat? "yawn".

We've got three 1270's and a 1370.

They'll move some stuff, especially the 1370.

turbo powah FTW.

Mine are 17", and I think 9" wide, not for certain though.
Rears are 275/40, fronts are 245/45, on my '87 Stang...fit perfect, don't think I could any more tire in the back without rolling the fenders..

Might be the angle of the pic, but those look like they stick out some. What spindle you runnin'? 94-5, or 96+?
