Lots of people ask what the difference is between an X-pipe and
an H-pipe. Sound differences, power differences ease of
installation etc. While this vid has been on my site for
years I've decided to give it a little love with a "tech"
You can hear the difference for yourself but I'd say an X-pipe is a bit more raspy while the H-pipe has a deeper sound. They both install about the same and as far as power - it's a debate that will go on forever...but I'd say an X-pipe (...)
Fox chassis cars are known for having headlight issues...everything from flashing lights when the fogs are on, to blown headlight and multi-function (turn signal) switches. Basically because all the power goes directly through those 2 (...)
Summer 2011 I blew the turbo to manifold gasket and developed a nasty exhaust leak. It sounded horrible and performance was suffering. I originally planned to do it over the winter so I wouldn't have any downtime but I didn't end up (...)

The clear was chipping and checking in several spots and they just didn't look that great - especially when they got dirty. They were "yellowing" in a few spots too - Additionally, one of them looks as if it was (...)
So the dash panels in the SVO weren't in the best shape when I got the car so I decided to research "re-fuzzying" it. After some quick searches I decided I was going to tackle it. See below on how it looked before I started.
(Fairmont/Zephyr dashes are similar)
As I was stripping the old paint from the dash pad of my Capri in order to refinish it I carelessly dropped a scraper on the speaker hole area creating a nasty looking LARGER hole...(Note, this was mid paint removal so (...)
Wild Rides S-Box install – By Mike Martinelli Jr. – aka n20capri
After ripping out my passengers' side upper torque box at Atco in April 2008 it was time to get serious so I picked up the Wild Rides S-box (aka the Stang Box) to solve the problem. It’s beefy, not too difficult (...)
