    Modified Mountaineer running rough / misfiring

    Thanks Don. I'll keep rechecking and test the fuel pressure next. The assumed dead cylinder injector is directly below the fuel pressure regulator on the stock fuel rail. It's nearly impossible to get to the test port on the fuel rail with the way the lower intake mount is on the explorer...

    No blinkers - front parking lights get brighter when braking

    Well it ended up being the switch along with some "mis-placed" wiring. I determined the correct electrical flow of the switch and found that two wires had been swapped. I put a new switch in and no longer had the problem of everything lighting up... but still had no blinkers. Corrected...

    5.0 Camshaft Specs

    Looking at ordering a cam for the mountaineer. Wondering what you guys are running, and how much lift I can get away with and still have enough piston-valve clearance. I spoke with someone at Comp Cams about a custom ground cam and they were concerned that something running .530-.540 lift...

    tires or gears first

    I am the guy from another board runnin 4.56s with ~30" tires. First thing i want to say is: that chart seems to be way off IMO. At 75 mph I am barely over 3,000, maybe 3,050 at the highest. Because this seems high, I like to cruise right around 68-70 mph where my rpms are around...

    turbo or supercharger?

    I would go with the supercharger. Ive driven turbo cars before and the feeling between a turbo and a supercharger is completly different.
