Last year I got the Teksid rebuilt and it lasted 4k miles.
First the mods:
Block bored .020 and crank turned ,010(rods and mains), Probe pistons and around 11:1 static and nearly 10:1 dynamic with 205psi cranking compressions. MMR forged rods, Expensive 3 layer bearings.
Heads are ModularHeadShop stage 2's. They flowed 210/175CFM after the valve job was redone.
Cams are custom Comps, 230*/234* on a 110*LSA & a 106* install line. These specs give a quicker turn on and better mid-range torque.
Edelbrock Victor headers, what a shame these have been discontinued
AWESOME! Simple install! Steeda UDP's, SVO intake port matched to PI heads w/complete install kit. I tried to sell this but since they are port matched for PI's it seems that npi guys are the guys who really want them. Same with the cams, even at $250.!They are the PI version with .550" lift.
Car has 4.10's and a 3800rpm stall converter that locks at part throttle in 2nd egar like 3rd did before the tune and it locks at WOT right after the shifts.
This is a '99 Convertibl;e, red metallic with white top/leather. So it has it all, heads, intake, 24lb. inj's, 255lph fuel pump, HO oil pump, cams, dual 57mm throttle blade, RAI/CAI system with a scoop where the fog was(moved it inboard) and it has 4" aluminum piping leading oncoming air inmto the stock air can w/S&B filter w/stock inlet tube(is this a serious restriction from experience) as I did have a JLT when stock intake and it worked great! Wideband O2 sensor/gauge, white face gauges.
Welkl I am almost deaf and it knocked and damaged 2 pistons and the ring moly. I have a TurboXs knock light and the Teksid has bosses for the sensors BUT they sit too high and the intake hits them! I can have the bosses cut down 1/2" but what sensors are shorter, any Ford units? My teksid is a '93. Bests were a 2.80/12.75/108.1mph. Not bad with no dyno tune but that likely ruined the motor.
More to come about the new build in a couple of hours.
Opinions will be asked for, educated opinions, please, Mark
