I swapped the thermostat housing on the SVT. It was bad. Hope I didn't hurt the motor. It seems to run just fine so we will see.

Another issue I have is a noise from the front end under braking. It is a rubbing sound under braking or going slow. I could not see anything when I had it on the lift last night. I rotated the front wheels and could not hear anything except some dragging on the front discs. It is kind of a "wppa-wapa" tied to the rotating speed of the tires. It does not seem to matter which way I turn, don't think it is a front hub bearing. CV joint boots are not leaking grease. Any thoughts?

how much tread is left on the tires? could be them wearing out?
