5.4 32V NA Project done! Dyno, vids, pics

Bought the body in white in 2005.
Now powered by an Al Papitto built 11:1 5.4 32V motor
Motor uses Aussie Boss intake, Boss 330 cams,
Custom LT's, 2000 "R" spec T56, 04 Cobra IRS w/STEEDA upgrades,
but mostly OE Ford parts.
99% 04 Mach 1 wiring and PCM, 1% Terminator wiring (Decklid)
Yes, I built the entire car, and used it to develop the swap kit.

Started here Feb. 2005:





Crate motor for testing with Aussie Boss lower intake:

AMAZING!!! I couldn't imagine the amount of man hours put into this. I tip my hat sir.
I really want to do something like this in the future as a side project, it'd be badass!!!...great work.

Re: 5.4 32V NA Project done! Dyno, vids, pics

Many long nights in the garage (NO lift or compressor by the way),
a few skipped meals, barrels of Mt. Dew....................
There are a few more around here with this setup.
My buddy's 98 Cobra with a VERY mild 5.4 put 345 Tq. to the wheels
on a fresh motor (I built it), and it has gained some since.
It's forged crank, rods and pistons, stock unported 01 heads,
shorties, O/R H pipe, and FGT cams and 4.10 gears.
All fit under the stock Cobra hood.
I do have a couple pics of that one.

Final finish with the Boss 330 cams was late November when
I was in Texas for a bit.
I originally wanted his design cams,
but they were in the pipeline when Crane shut down,
so I went with Crower Stage 3 NA cams.
It busted a sec. timing chain, so I switched to Al's cams at that time.
Not sure why a brand new chain went, but it did.

If you don't mind me asking, what's the cam specs on yours.

I am not sure exactly, as they are Boss330 racing proprietary grinds.
I do know they are around 13mm lift,
with a bit more duration and overlap
than the Crower Stage 3 NA cams.
Al spent a lot of time deciding the package, from the piston design,
which are custom CP slugs, the head porting and the cams.
This was the first motor he built with my Aussie Boss setup,
which has 10" runners.
There are a few more in the works,
with one being a twin and going into a Mach 1.
It makes a crapload of torque, and pulls HARD all the way up.
And I do mean HARD.

Bad *** dude, I don't know if you remember me but I bought your old tires off of ModularFords.com, but I have been following your progress. Great work, definitely effin' sweet! Since my 95 is nearing completion, I'll hopefully start tearing down my navi motor.

Cool, just wondering...they have a nice lopey idle...makes me wish all newer v8 mustangs came with the 5.4L and those cams, lol.

Ode to the good ol' days

Cool and thanks!
Those tires had very few miles on them.
Those were on this car originally until Dario at STEEDA
gave me a killer deal on a set of 275/40/18 Nittos.

I didn't mean to have a short reply, I edited it.
Must have hit the wrong key on the above camshaft post.
(My bad)
The idle sounds rough, but under the hood it's silky smooth.
As soon as you hit the throttle, it is exceptionally smooth,
and the torque is unreal, as you might guess looking at the sheet.
The car has IRS w/3.55 gears and (repeating myself again)
It pulls so hard, feels like a roller coaster or a freight train.
Al knows his stuff.
I told him I wanted high torque, and around 400/400.
Once the motor is broken in and it gets tweaked,
it should be well over 400 on both counts.

Yea those tires looked brand new! It was definitely a good deal! Are you still making swap kits? I saw a post when you said you only had one left, didn't know if you were still making them.

Yes, that should be handled via PM's, as I am not a vendor here.
I do know of a Fox chassis owner doing this setup but with twin turbos.
Can you imagine the torque?
That one is going to be a front inlet TB.

That's crazy man...I just love that it's a nice, big naturally aspirated engine...takes badassness to an all new level. I could imagine anything taller than 3.55's would make 1st pretty much useless

Re: 5.4 32V NA Project done! Dyno, vids, pics

Thanks guys.
Currently waiting on FDOT paperwork to have it inspected,
have a VIN assigned, and then be able to drive the car.
Hoping all goes well with that.
I do plan on taking it to the STEEDA Stampede later this year,
and joining up with a couple/few more 5.4 NA cars,
maybe even one or two from Vero Beach, Fl.
No disrespect to FI folks, but after seeing a few hundred blower cars,
NA is a nice change of pace at shows.

I have always been an NA guy, small car with a big motor.
LONG ago, I put a 351C 4V in a Mustang II,
drove it for 10 years before I sold it.
