    I know we use 4.7L of oil here in Canada...

    Nice to see you fixed the sound.

    I know my power steering fluid was clear or at least I though it was. But people allways have tricks of using other fluids for things that supposadly work better, cant help ya there sorry.

    Not sure how many people know this, but you can run the fox style FL1A filter on 94/95 mustangs, thats what I run and it gives me a few more psi's of pressure. My ps fluid is gray, probably time to change it though.

    Not sure what you mean by Fox style Fl1A our cars call for the FL1A Cobra's fun a smaller one.

    The foxes use the FL1A just like the 94/95 gt's, FL300's also work on the 94/95 gt's. Do the cobras run the FL300?
