Whats up Fellas just figured I would share some Info on the car.
With the air filter out and a 180 Stat. the car made
185 HP @ 5500
275 TQ @4700
The air fuel was about 12.8:1 acroos the board then it leaned out up top to 13:1
Im not sure what I want to do yet. I was gonna go straight to the turbo, but I think I might just get a pully, chop the cat and do a cold air kit. The guy that Runs the Dyno Ports heads...he just started porting blowers for Ford SVT cars and trucks. He is porting a blower for a 98 GTP. I will let you guys know how the GTP blower porting goes, I am gonna try and get some pics of the blower. Do any of you guys have Dyno numbers?
Are those #'* at the flywheel or the ground? IF they are at the ground that toque # is astounding. 275 lb ft is what your car was rated at atthe flywheel from the factory. I am guessing your #'* are at the ground going by the hp # of 185 as that is 40 hp (21%) less than the hp at the flywheel # from the factory (225 hp).
Let us know if those are flywheel or at the ground.
Either way it'* cool to see #'* as we don't get these often enough around here -helps to set standards and goals.
The Numbers are ground HP. I know the local Dyno guy Very well. 20 bucks for 3 pulls. I was also impressed with the TQ. Thier was a guy their that runs a Ford Super Coupe he **** when he saw the TQ
I blower was realy makin some noise when I took off the Air box and filter
According to Eaton/Magnusson, porting the blower won't gain you anything. The rotors will only move a certain amount of air per stroke. As long as the outlet of the SC is big enough for this (and it is), no porting is necessary.
