    I'll give it a try and see were I'm at and go from there cause I know how to shift my AOD so thats no problem and I sure you mean WOT and I'll let you all know were it sits.

    Exactly. Put the thing in "D" and leave it. Put your foot to the floor and take it near the limiter. Then see what you got.

    Turn up the fuel pressure a little more then stomp on it. As long as timing is at 10* and your are using premium gas. That kit doesn't come with a BTM because it's not needed.

    I've put my stock 130k mile shortblock through the following.

    Overheated 3 times
    Ran about 10 min with antifreeze in the oil
    Ran the car without oil for 30 seconds
    Roughly 470 horsepower
    A couple over revs from miss shifts
    10psi of boost
    Numerous Dyno Pulls

    And the ****er still runs..

    Go out there and beat the snot out of her!!! With the FMU and under 5 psi, you should have ZERO problems!! Vortech intentially sets it up so you run about 10:1 and 11:1 a/f ratio. Don't be afraid!!!! :nice:

    That's my mentality. My headgasket went for the 3rd time so now my 331 is on the way. What an expensive hobby were in. Not to mention all of these mustangs are money pits. I have over 3 times the money in my car than I paid for it :bang: .

    One of the only reasons I dump my money into it. I spend all of my free time playing around with it and fixing things. Keeps me busy and happy to spend $2,000 here, $5,000 there. There's something wrong with us Mustang Guys :rlaugh:

    didnt read the whole post but DO not hook up the boost guage to the fuel pressure regulator vac line.... the boost guage is sort of a vacuum leak, the FPR needs to have a god vac signal...

    I hooked up my hand vacuum pump to my boost guage before installation and it held 30 in of Vacuum all day long. Is there something I'm missing??
