Hello!!!!!

I apologize, posted in the wrong section before,....

Hello everyone. New to the site as well as Mustangs. I just bought my dream car. A 90 Fast Back!!!! She is red, she has a 5.0, she has the gt40p swap, as well as the 5 lug conversion and 4 way disk. she is lowered and her name is Scully. She is a very sexy red head with an attitude. I traded my very cherry 96 cherokee for her. I totally made the right decision. She needs a little love, but i think I am the right man for the job, with a little help from you guys. I look forward to reading your guys info and ideas. Heres to project Scully!

Back in the day, 1971 to be exact, my '66 289 Coupe and I were stationed in Cheyenne (me being from Texas). I found out the hard way that one loses roughly 20% of one's horsepower when operating at 6,000+ ft elevation. A quick re-jetting of the old Holley somewhat fixed the situation and man did it run great when I brought it back home to 750ft.

My question is do today's computer controlled fuel systems make up for this or do the cars still not run as well up high as at sea level?

Nope we still get a bad power loss. Turbo cars aren't affected as much but pretty much everything else takes a major hit.

I heard a comparison once that taking a car from elevation down to sea level was like adding a mild 6lbs of boost to your car. Not sure if it's true but you can definitely tell there is a lack up here.

It's something like that. I had a buddy pick up 2 psi of boost on his Shelby when he drove down to Texas to do the Texas Mile

The old rule of thumb was that you lost 3% of horsepower per 1,000 feet elevation. Sure blew a lot of black smoke at first.

So how does that effect stoic when your ecu is attempting to calculate for the elevation already.? Does it ****** or advance timing?
