    Doesn't someone on here have a Woofer Tester?

    Car #3 is down now too. Fuck me. . . . . Only have two more left running. Hope my driveshaft is done tomorrow.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    So, I started tearing the T-bird apart a few months ago to restore it. Two weeks ago, I had to replace some exhaust parts on the Mustang, and upon removing some stuff, I broke the bolts at the manifold. YAY!. Went to jack it up, and found a broken ball joint on the PS, and the DS was worn to the point of breaking. Ironically, neither of them showed any signs of wear whilst driving. So I have the Mustang up on jack stands with the entire front end torn out. Ordered a new clutch since I figured why not since I'm this far into it. Fast forward to today and I'm coming home from picking Gavin up and my truck starts to make this atrocious noise. I knew immediately what it was. So we limp home, I get under the truck, and sure as shit, the carrier bearing for the driveshaft it shot. I get online to check on prices, and they're $5-$15 through Rock Auto, so I am not too upset. I start doing some more price checking, and I find out that my particular truck has a non-serviceable driveshaft which includes the shaft itself, the the U-joints, and the bearing. So now, I stuck with spending $800 on an entire new shaft, which thankfully replaces the non-serviceable parts with serviceable parts, but WTF? I have NO luck with used vehicles.
  4. I'm going to bet it a power steering issue causing strain on the pump which causes excessive parasitic drag. This could cause belt slippage, or tensioner issues which means the alt struggles while turning. Come out of the turn, no more excessive load, all good.

    They are ALL super-hard. I was just discussing this with our PPG rep. These things cure in hours and there are no more solvents to evaporate. It's strictly endothermic and boom, they're done.

    Box build for f150 fx2 sport

    Why do you want to build bandpass when you can accomplish the same thing with a simple vented enclosure?

    I've been in some sorority sisters before. Does that count?

    FUCK that! Take some time off! No sense in making other's rich.

    Odd to me that you think that. I don't think any of them look alike. I can distinguish any of them without issue.

    Advice needed

    Depends on the application and the amplifier settings. What are your enclosure specs? Use your ear when setting and you should be good.

    They make the best kit, IMO, but I only trust them professionally installed. VERY intricate.

    I don't have room for that, and it would require a massive undertaking for protection if I did. Guess I'm forced to build and test. Thank you for your input though!

    It's quite alright. Not many people understand my common sense.

    Those with truck experience, I need some help here. My truck has quite a bit of room behind the seats. I have an 18" Ultimax I would like to run in there. I am worried about cancellation if I fire forward, so I am going to load it off the rear wall. I've never used this application in a truck before. Does anyone think it will be an issue?

    I wouldn't buy TP from that guy. Too much bad news and mystery behind him. No idea how he's still in business.

    Roush has always made good cars. They do a lot of design, engineering, and manufacturing for Ford Racing as well, so there is a huge factory relationship between the two. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Roush. I almost bought a Roush Ecoboost before I picked up my '16.

    The car needs some help in the sound department. Nothing crazy, but just wanted it a little louder.

    I don't shop them any longer, so I'm not up to date on pricing.
  19. You're using an LOC on a Boss radio? Does it not have RCA outputs? If the amp works when you give it 12 volts from the battery, then obviously the turn-on lead you are currently using is causing the issue.

    My baby momma spent $33K on an Escape in 2011!

    Recommending a Mustang. If I had that money, I'd only opt for the GT350. There were a couple dealers selling some boosted GTs for like $40K though if you want to save some money. Around 800HP with warranty.

    Started removing my H-pipe today. Broke a couple studs on the PS manifold, so now I have to remove the front suspension and K-member, AND the manifold for repair. I guess this was a blessing in disguise though as when I was removing the suspension, I found both ball joints excessively worn and a broken spring. Never felt an issue or made any noises. Odd.

    I wouldn't even bother.

    I am not a fan of the C8. Perhaps when I see it in person, but, for me, the C7 is the second most beautiful Vette, and the best modern Vette to date. I get why they had to go mid-engine, but to me, it's now no longer a sports car nor grand tourer.

    Further North. Maybe you'll get more snow and can sled more.
