Just finished up this build and was a little dissapointed with the results. I know dyno #'s dont tell you everything, but I was hoping they'd be alot higher.
stage 2 patriot heads
Bullet cams (227, 228 @.050) lift
24 lb injectors, focus pump etc.
ford racing intake
made 286rwhp and about 305 trq.
Suppose I were to add LT's, bigger cams (stage 2?) and maybe udps and possibly a trickflow or edlebrock intake...
DO you think not having these things is really holding it back? I was on a budget and tried to save some money, but now I'm wishing I had gotten LT's at least. And with the cams, we were trying to watch the clearance...
What timing are you running and what a/f? Post up a datalog screenshot so we can see spark and a/f.
Your cam selection should be fine. You don't want to got big with cams unless you want to essentially bleed off cylinder pressure (torque) under 4500 rpms.
If I was in your situation, I would save for a centri blower setup. Your engine is setup almost perfect for low boost and high rwhp. Or you could spray it as mentioned, I recommend a progressive controller.
Wow that's really low with just the bolt ons injave I out down 267 and 307 and I don't have cams or heads or headers. There is deff something goin wrong with that setup. If you checked the compression ratio and that was good how else would you be able to tell what the problem is? Do you have a mid pipe and cat back as well still would only be worth maybe 10-12 hp you should be easily in the 320-330 range. Long tubes and full exhaust should bump u up maybe another 20 so you would be at 300 by then ur still seems low maybe the air fuel is off or something or the timming is messed up cause that engine is def sick and no feelin well
