I would love to see that, do you have the name of the video or the link? Well at the moment me and my gf are having problems so most likely the mx6 will go with her and I'll stay with the GTi. BUT Imma sell my GTi for $1500 so I can get myself another MX6. F**ken girls man!!!!! I should just give my car a girl's name and and spoil her!!! LOL!

what do you have on that 302? not even headers? A few months ago I had my dizzy messing with me but did not know at the time, so I was doing diagnostics, I changed some things so I took it for a ride, so I was flooring it reving high, then mustang 5.0 early 2000's came up to me and starting reving as well. I wooped his a** bad. As a matter of fact last weekend when i changed the rad. I went for a test drive when a honda civic wanted to join me, its was hilarious he couldn't keep up and my car was smoking like crazy!!!! that must been embarrassing, losing to a car who clearly has something bad with the engine. I was just waiting for the loud clancking sound of something going terribly wrong but my 6 came through. Too bad people in Tuc. with mx6 don't chill together. I have to use my GTi if I wanna go to a meet.

Well... it may have been a 4.6 mustang GT if it was early 2000's... My Fox has a stock 302, speed density system (converting to MAF soon), a bigger TB... is the only MOD i have on my car. If you need some help say on a thursday or Friday... i have off from work and wouldn't mind coming down to help get the 6 on the road.

soon the Fox will have 3.73 gears, and a turbo

you're right, I forgot they got smaller displacement than earlier models.... I thank you alot for the offer but I would hate to impose, and on your day off too (but it would be great help!!). Well at the moment my car has me scratching my head because I did another diagnostic on it and the comression is still good across, but the bubbling when accelerating went away, I have not lost any coolant since 3 days, usually it last only about a couple of hrs, and the temp hasn't gone past normal. Imma do a coolant sys compression test but the one autozone has for rent wont fit, so Imma have to take it to a shop. I hate shops!!!!! Unless its mine (which I dont have one) so I hate them all.

Know when you guys would be coming up here? I wouldn't mind giving you a hand pulling the motor after work if you guys still need help. As long as its not insanely far away.

The guy didn't have the engine out!!! man it sucked to take it out, luckly it didn't have a tranny so it was fairly easy it was just too HOT!!! I have the engine in Rio Rico ready to be installed tomorrow. I never done one so I hope everything goes good. Do you know if I have to take out the tranny first?

you should, if done right be able to take the motor and tranny out in one shot... without seperating them... then remove whatever you wanna keep... swap it to the new motor and then reverse the process. there is a really good right up on probetalk.. i dunno if its on here about doing motor swaps.

Thanks man but I already did it, I couldn't bleed the clutch an a mechanic that we know said the bearing fell from the fork cuz it was very lose, so my girl and her parents convinced me to re-do it but I did have it right. So now I just need to do the timing right, I did it by feeling it but I'm sure is a couple of degrees off. Now imma re-built the other engine and find a cheap car with bad engine and swap again, I'm confident that I can do it now with no problem.
