what do I have????

Hello, I am new to the 5.0 seen. I was a old Grand National owner and raced the Buicks since 1988. I loved those cars but I also always like the Mustang even though the buick guys and mustang guys did not get along.

Well now I have bought myself a 1987 Mustang GT with the following mods.

Brand new Eagle 347 Stroker with Mass air
AFR alumium Heads
Elderbrock upper and lower
42 lb injectors
70mm BBK throttle body
Long tube BBK headers
MSD TFI full ing.
vortech s-trim blower

hooked to a PA C-4 super comp trans with brake
alumium drive shaft
Built 8.8 with spool 3.73, moser axels, c clip elm.
Florida 5.0 dash...ect

Well my question is that this car has about 50 miles on it, eveything is brand new.

It has 6 passes on it with pump gas and has run 10:66@125 thru the exhaust on drag radials.

The car was Dyno tuned to be between street and strip, so it runs on pump gas only.

But there is no O2 sensors in it. How does this all work like this and is this a normal setup? what do I have???

Re: what do I have????

What sort of system are they using to control fuel?

I'm not 100% sure on the rustangs, but with my buick I can tune in what's called 'VE performance mode' which will bypass 02 sensors and run timing/custom fuel maps based only off of MAF scaling.. makes it real easy to run the car using a wideband 02 sensor (that you monitor) but is a PITA because any weather changes and you have to upgrade your tune
- not sure how the mustang would use this type of setup, is there a module that came with the SC? it'd probably be mounted near the MSD ignition box
