yeah I may end up just going with the stryker 340 lph pump
Be like gaetz and just make a custom tank and get some fuel rails made so you can run return style fuel lol. The more I look at it, the more I get interested in just doing that lol.

Also, did you ever get your hot side in? When do you plan on putting it in the car? How much do you need to fab to get it in?

I thought about going return style but too much money lol.

And the hotside got shipped to a buddies shop...and he wasn't there.... so now I'm waiting for him to go get it at the post office or something. :nopity:

I'm hoping that I won't have to fab much to fit it.

well, today i bought my lightning maf and my m112 kit was shipped....major plus's :D

major negative...i left the car to run, something i do once a week to keep her circulated and charged...about 10 min give take....well today i am outside and turn around and the damn thing was smoking!!! ran over and shut her down, f#@cking thermostat locked shut and pegged the temp gauge. i let it cool down, refilled the coolant, checked the oil and she fired up again no hesitation. i dont know if any damage has been done or not. i didnt see any coolant / oil cross contamination. i am going to swap out thermostat this weekend. i am hoping since the engine has barely 1,500 miles since rebuild she will be ok.
if not...well back to the starting block.

the hope is to have it done by Carlisle All Ford Nationals - which is the first weekend in july. I think that should be pretty doable. I have almost all the parts and I don't think it should take more then a few weeks at most to put together.

dunno when the summit show is this year - I have two weddings I have to go to in july.

I think its usually like the last weekend of July. Don't know for sure though. I said that too about when I woudl have it done, but you are just putting the turbo on right? Doing anything wtih building an engine yet?

My coolant scared the hell out of me too. I had that happen where the gauge just kept going up and up because I had air in the system. Here's to hoping everything is ok man.

Just the turbo. Hence why I don't foresee it taking very long.

Ok. Got my valve and guide ordered. I'll take the head to the machine shop Friday and get it back the following Monday. Then next weekend it's going back together. Sofa king ready to drive a 2wd car that can pass a V6 truck. Lol

Got it on the dyno today, went very smoothly. Only had one run where a coupler blew off, and other then that nothing went really wrong.

Put a tune on the car, ran to 3.5k, was really good, ran to 5800, was doing great. Only made a couple adjustments over the entire day.

Initial 5psi video (wastegate referenced off of the charge piping)

243rwhp 253rwtq

Best 5psi video (wastegate reference off of the intake manifold)

267rwhp 270rwtq. Made quite the difference

Made a couple other adjustments, and ended up with this as the biggest pull of the day at 12psi. (about 15-16degrees of timing)

353rwhp 370rwtq

Dyno graph


Max power was 353rwhp, 370rwtq, and this is with a "12psi" run (The tuner suggested I get a bigger spring for the wastegate because as you can see peak pressure is 12psi, but after 4.5k rpms it drops to around 8. So the boost controller isn't keeping it at peak boost).

One issue we ran into was with the fuel pump which is an aviator 310lph fuel pump. We were maxing out its duty cycle, which shouldn't have been a problem. The tuner noticed that the duty cycle of the pump just at idle was around 30-40%, which it should be below 10, so his thoughts are that in the tank I have a leak in one of my hoses. So I will have to drop the tank to put a new line in it, no big deal.

The other issue we were having was with holding boost through the whole rpm range. I would hit peak, but then after 4500rpms it would drop a couple psi, and the tuner suggested that I should put a bigger spring in the wastegate so that I have a higher starting point, and the boost controller should do better from there.

All in all I am pumped about how smoothly everything went and no real issues. Idle is still slightly rough just because of the maf and having the piping the way it is. Brian (the tuner) suggested an Abacope mass air meter since it has 4 sensors and averages them to give a much clearer signal.

Over the winter the plans are to get the fuel pump figured out, potentially get a different maf, and if money still allows step up to the 60lb injectors. That should put me pretty much where I want to be. I didn't quite hit my 400rwtq target, but nothing came apart and im only 30ftlbs away, which once I get the other stuff squared away I should be able to hit that pretty easily.
