I stumbled across the VMF last weekend and have solved problems I have faced since I bought my mustang (in high school, many years ago). If only the auto shops in my area read these posts, it could have saved a lot of frustration.

Magnum 500 differences between front/rear with disc brakes
Overheating, adding a 6 blade fan, shroud and 180 thermostat
Oil Leaks and synthetic oil.

Thanks for all of the info and keep it coming.

Question for the day, what recommendations for converting the single to dual exhaust? I am not big on loud cars, but I do want her (my car) to be happy, benefits/pitfalls?

1968 Mustang, 65A body, 302cid, Autotrans

For the exhaust, now is the time to upgrade to headers if you want to. Careful though, cheap ones can get loose and leak so if low maintenance is your top priority stick with the cast iron manifolds. You'll really want to have a crossover of some kind, whether it be an X-pipe, or an H-pipe. Makes it sound and perform better. Then go find the shop that you want to do the work. Check out a few, figure out which one likes to work on classics and will do a good job the way you want it done.
