    Im wanting to go forced induction and I'm leaing towards the vortech v3. I was thinking ditching the fmu and wanted to know if you guys thought that 24lb injectors and the maf to go w/ em would be sufficient? Right now I'm pretty much stock, stock heads and intake with comp cam and sct chip and exhuast making 209 rwhp.​

    but if youre getting a tune anyhow, id consider ditching the fmu and upgrade injectors and fuel pump

    Ditch the FMU and put some 42's in it with a new MAF and larger fuel pump. Ford used 36's on the Supercoupe from the factory and it was only a 3.8L V6 so I wouldn't chance it with 24's. Get the SCT chip re-programmed for the blower and the injectors though.
