power # questions

Discussion in 'Fox 5.0 Mustang Tech' started by payupsucka, Jul 3, 2006.

  1. here is my engine's component list:

    forged 306
    box stock tfs tw heads
    crane 1.6 rr
    e 303 cam
    cobra intake
    70mm t body
    73mm c &l maf meter (calibrated for 24# injecters
    frpp 24 # injectors
    mac equal length 1 5/8 shorties
    bassni 2 1/2 inch catted x pipe
    mac 2 1/2 inch cat back

    car made 280 rwhp and 313 rwtq
    i was lead to believe that the output was average for the intake and the cam
    but i have heard a couple people say that my power numbers are a bit low.
    basiclly iam looking for more opinions on teh out put and maybe suggestions as to where to go with it next.
    as always all help is greatly appreciated!

    thanks in advance,
  2. Who cares about dyno numbers. Go to the track and have fun. For more power I would look into a better intake, custom cam and valve springs, longtubes and 410 gears. But i'm not sure how wild you wanna go. Maybe simply porting the lower manifold will satisfy you. If it was my car that would NOT do it for me.

    Fwiw I made 304/339 with tw heads, street intake, stg 1 cam, shortys, 18* timing, stock eec and 100k mile stock shortblock.
  3. Numbers look ok to me...280 is very resonable for an non dynotuned H/C/I car...you could probably gain a bit with some A/F and timing work, but would you notice it?...probably not.
