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!

1999 Mercury Cougar side exit exhaust in-car video
I've had a few people ask for it, so here's some in-car video of my new Exhaust. John, aka Predator, shot the video while I was driving. It sounds even crazier from the drivers seat, I can literally hear the "rush" of air coming out of the Exhaust. Sounds mean as hell though, thats for sure!
