A short video in my friend's Cougar. We didn't meant to achive the car's top speed, just having some fun. The car is a 2.5 V6 24v 2000 Ford Cougar. Responsible for that sweet sound is the Issota exaust.
I'm sorry for the camera going all over the place, but we didn't initially meant to edit and upload the vids... maybe in the future we'll try and make one of higher quality.
p.s. Sound track: Jin - Peel off
1999 Mercury Cougar 3L Turbo "Time Warp"
Video camera was securely locked into the camera holder, but the holder was
slightly loose. This lended to create a really cool "Time Warp" effect. The
turbo is a Precision SC-61 and the turbo kit is home made using a TiAL 50mm
BOV and TiAL 38mm wastegate and all 304SS tubing.

2001 Mercury Cougar V6 Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2001 Mercury Cougar V6. I
take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
1999 Mercury Cougar V6 uncontrolled acceleration
Here is the strange problem that has plagued my car for a while now. I have
replaced the IACV and TPS and it didn't fix it.
EDIT 2: The problem ended up being the TPS wiring rubbing on the water pump
belt. Fixed the frayed wiring and moved it, and it never did this again.
EDIT: I believe I found the problem. One of the bolts holding the EGR to
the UIM was broken off, and was allowing a vacuum leak around the EGR where
it wasn't sealed down tight. I've got a new UIM coming, and will update if
that fixes my problem!
Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all
the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option
packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that
XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in
one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
