      Buy fox body Mustang, do basic mods(cam, headers, intake manifold, exhaust, heads if you can afford it). Then get a set of slicks and a 150 shot of nitrous. Probably the cheapest way to run 11s

      If she paid a shop to install a transmission sourced by them then let them deal with it and fix it. Then it would be a good idea to sell it

      The heater core alone is supposed to be flushed with CLR then flushed with water and filled with coolant/water and bled. That only works sometimes.

      On B6s the part can be had for less than $100...

      Got a pair of H13 bulbs in our Ford Flex, they work well but the high beam is not as bright as low beam and the fans started to make noise a few months in.

      A lot of cars have fittings to test fuel pressure, on the 1.8T you'd have to get an inline fitting on the fuel feed line and a short piece of hose, then put a gauge on the fitting. They can be found...

      It's not worth it. The only thing that may be worth it is to use parts that were available on the same vehicle as options, but even then it will get expensive and you'd be better off getting a...

      The .91 5th goes about 220-230km/h with ~140hp
