Im giving up..

I give up on getting my car to run right.

If you read V6Power, you know the problems I have, Im too lazy to retype them all.

But basically, I made 20rwhp and lost a few rwtq with my heads/cam combo, has a few other daily driving problems, but it runs and thats what counts right now.

Jason(white95stangv6) you mightve heard me drive by your place on sunday a few times. I was back home for a day. I tried to open it up a little as I went by 8) It sounds great, just has some hidden problems right now.

I Dynoed at 160rwhp on a 99 AODE

Yep. Figure 190 - 25% drivetrain loss. I never did a baseline, but should have come in about 140rwhp stock.

Don't know why this thread is in General..


Corey, if you had invested that mod-money in the vastly superior and more powerful split port you would be over 200rwhp by now..

Instead of you measly 153rwhp.

Yeah, maybe Ken, but there is something fishy about those numbers, the many has already taken down 5.0s with that car, which he shouldn't have been able to with 153 rwhp.
