yep...

neighbor told me that the tire was hissing and flat, went out and this is what I had... put air in it to find the leak and you can see where an ex-nail/screw used to be and where the leak is.

Went to autozone bought a plug kit for 9 bux and plugged it misself. We'll see how it holds.

What sucks is now the 600 bucks for towards the new 390 that I'm trying to build is going towards two new tires. The hits just keep coming

Funny thing is Shellie is trying to get me to buy a new 5.0, I think cause of the dual-climate control, ...... BTW have you seen the new whipple for those things. 7lbs boost and they're hitting 600+RWHP on a safe tune.

Check this out! new pics of the jack roush crash..LINK

Roush walked off the plane and was sent to the hospital where he was initially listed in serious condition. His injuries included a fractured back, broken jaw, and the loss of his left eye. Yes, that's right Roush lost his left eye.

I got a screw in the back tire of my red car last week.
Plugged it and it is holding just fine.
Good luck with yours Brian.

Tested the plug on the way home and so far so good. Plug kit($9) + being lazy to remount the tire($5) < $20 to have it plugged for me

a plug should hold perfectly fine, as long as its not on the sidewall.

its a little off the center and right in the meat of the tread... what is left of the meat of the tread. After the first two mini-first-gear-no-traction acceleration tests, so far so good

Sorry to hear about the flat but I feel the pain: my radiator has gone to sh*t. I was going to go all-aluminum but the plastic held up ten years, so it'll do for me.

Are the 5.0's making that much power with the stock bottom end?!

If I had a 'do-another Mustang' card, all I would do is tint the windows, springs, wheels and tires, and a CARB approved twin screw, and call it a day.

I have a "do-another Mustang" card

As far as power goes, I'm just going to wait until I have the money to get the new 5.0 engine, then just get an intake, tune and exhaust. Same cost as a blower, with the same amount of power, less weight, and CARB legal.

For now, I'm just focusing on maintenance and appearance(which I'll be done with the exterior by the end of the year )

You talking about putting in a new 5.0 crate motor in your car? Sounds awesome and crazy at the same time.
