I kept the stock sensors when I bought my wheels and haven't had any problems. I asked the tire shop about it and they said it was not necessary to replace them.

Oh, the two screws are torx so you'll need torx bits if you don't already have them. It's literally just two screws, three hoses and the level sensor wire.

Alrighty then! Ended up with a non-factory tank through Amazon Prime. Already had an order in and wanted it in a hurry. Love the two-day free shipping.

Coolant expansion tank - it's my turn.

70k on the clock so I knew it'd start leaking at some point. Seeing the tanks online for about $60. Is that about the best deal to be had? These cooling systems :mad:

How much coolant will I need?...

My last Mustang was a '70, but I think my Magnaflow is too quiet. I also think it sounds nothing like modern Mustangs - not even close. To clarify, I have the full cat-back system, part #16559.
