    Carb Spitting

    Hey, I'm looking for some tips after rebuilding my holley double pumper. When I stomp on the pedal (idling) the car will sputter and if I press moderately it will spit fire out the primary and air out the secondary. If I press the gas gradually, there's no issues and it revs as expected. It...

    Engine Turbo 5.0 Mustang bad misfire at WOT

    Hello, I have been having persistent problems since before I replaced the lower intake(about 2 months ago) when flooring it in my turbo fox. The first drive out after replacing the intake I discovered my fuel pump was just hanging in the fuel tank, so I fixed that, and the car ran like a bat out...

    Backfire after cleaning injectors

    Hi, recently bought a 2004 v6 stang and have been having some trouble. When I first bought the car it was running great, no problems as far as I could tell and I was happy. Then I ran out of gas. After I refilled it the car was running terribly. Rough idle and felt like the car was really...

    I have an 03 roush 4.6L NA car, only mods done to it are CAI, Accufab 70mm TB and intake plenum, and exhaust. It threw a code last week for cam position sensor because it would backfire on start ups so I replaced that. I got a new ac system installed today, Just picked it up from the shop and on...

    Loss of Power/Backfiring

    Ok, so this is kind of a long story so let me first start off with the model. It's an 89 Mustang GT (5.0). About a week ago I heard a knocking sound coming from the engine bay, so I took a look and thought the sound was coming from the alternator pulley. I took the alternator to O'reiley's and...

    Engine Weird Idle/cruising Misfire

    Alright guys coming back to my roots here at Stanget hoping to solve this one. Recently swapped a PI 2v 4.6 with a Stroker kit into my 96 gt. Along the way I deleted my EGR because with Longtubes it's darn near impossible to put all that crap back on. Problem is I've had a little bit of a miss...
