We were talking about mustang mods in the thread about Kawboy69's new ride, and I thought I would go on about my son's Stang for a bit...
He is working at a Mustang performance shop now (dream job for the little Ford freak), and finally got a chance to mod his own car. I don't have pics yet, will post them in the next couple days, though.
I got to spend a few hours at the shop Saturday with them while they did some dyno work on it. That thing is awesome! When I was building street rods (in the 70's, yes they did have internal combustion engines, you little bratty kids), our only measure of sucess on a mod was whether or not it would now beat Scotty's Charger! Well, till we got to the strip, which didn't happen much. That Dyno is great, any adjustment nets imediate info, good or bad.
So, after boost and air fuel adjustments, the final numbers went from 367/414 to 395/455. There is a fair amount more to be found, but it will be a process over time, at least on this motor.
Oh, yeah, mods to this point are:
2000 Mustang GT,btw
Helion Turbo kit
some kind of electronic boost control
Twin Magnaflow mufflers at the end of the turbo pipes
Cobra 6 spd trans
Cobra IRS rear
Tube type K member w/coilover shocks frt susp
Probably more I don't remember
Not sure how much power this engine will generate, The stock heads flow ability will probably be the limiting factor. But, he has a 5.4 lightning block on the engine stand waiting for forged rods and 4v heads to be installed
Should get REAL interesting!
