Car is running like a champ.
Exhaust makes a "ticking" sound under load. I can't find any evidence of an exhaust leak and manifold / head pipe bolts are tight. I think it has always had this sound to some degree, but I notice it more now since the Simons exhaust isn't as loud. Thoughts?

That’s not a leak. Stock resonators sound the exact same.

Thanks. It's been a while since I've heard one in stock form.

Occasionally having a "high idle" after driving for a while.
When the high idle happens, it comes down to normal idle (~800 rpm) and then jumps to ~1200.
Turning off the car and turning it back on immediately yields normal idle.
It only seems to occur after the car has been driven for around an hour.

My first thought is something with the VSS circuit, since that is not stock, but so far my diagnosis hasn't found anything concrete. I monitored the voltage from the Ford VSS on my multimeter to confirm it was generating voltage. During driving it does show voltage on the multimeter so I am assuming that the VSS is ok. I do not think I can check the output of the Dakota Digital box without an oscilloscope.

Any thoughts?

I found that the bushing in my steering rack was MIA...maybe that's why the steering has always been shaky ...who knows how long it has been like this, but was an easy fix with the SuperPro SPF0931K replacement. Made a noticeable difference, especially during lane changes on the hwy. Should also re-check the toe alignment at some point.

Before:


After:



What was left of the original bushing:


Made the drive out to the Mid-Atlantic Volvo Club meet-up in NJ.

Nice fix on the steering rack! It was a really nice day and I'm so glad you made the ride. Your car is one of my favorites.
