We have this Tacoma in the shop for a customer complaint of excessive noise. The truck was just recently purchased but had a large aftermarket muffler on it that dumped almost directly under the cab causing drone and bad interior resonance. We are fabricating up a new exhaust system that mimics the factory setup; allowing the exhaust to exit out the right rear of the truck.
Subframe connectors are steel tube reinforcements that are welded to the bottom of the car. They connect the front and rear subframes together. This strengthens the flexible floorpan between the two subframes, and greatly increases the rigidity of the Mustang’s unibody chassis providing a better ride, improved handling, and a longer lifespan for the floor pan as it helps prevent fatigue.
The Mustang GT that was here for a sway bar and shock upgrade came back for a panhard bar installation as well. Its a suspension link that improves stability in straight lines and cornering; assisting the vehicle to maintain a straight line when launching and helps to stop the tendency to make steering corrections when tracking.
Got this Shelby in with some power issues that were traced to the catalytic converters being spent. The car already had a custom cat back exhaust system and since the customer wanted to upgrade to Kooks Long Tube headers; he went ahead and ordered their new “green” high flow catalytic converters. This GT500 can breathe right once again and makes incredible power.
Out with the old manifolds and worn out cats
In with the shiny new Kooks long tubes and “green” catalytic converters.
