Mod power

I know, I know, sorry guys there's many threads on this but just trying to get a quick general idea on how much power I'm pushing..currently I have an o/r x pipe, full LM1 catback, and an SR cai, I know cai is merely nothing without a tune, but a tunes from Bama is next on the list, should be coming in the next week or 2..what kinda HP numbers did I gain with my current mods? And how much more will I gain come the tune? Thanks everyone

Bullitt stock hp 265, intake 10, midpipe 10, tune, 15. Gears add no hp. Gears don't add hp. So maybe you're talking about crank hp

I wouldn't even buy those numbers if they were claimed at the crank.

It sounds like you have some awesome mods so far! The Bama tune will definitely be the best mod so far. You'll notice large gains in power, torque, acceleration, drive ability, gas mileage, throttle response, shift points (if AUTO) etc...

I would imagine your car is in the low to mid 200 wheel horsepower range! That's the norm when it comes to the 2V motors.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future. Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266.

You either have a factory freak, a mod you aren't telling us about, if there was a previous owner maybe they did something? 294 to the wheels is NOT normal even with a cammed 2V.

There is something else going on here that is not being mentioned.

The +/- 10 to 20 lb-ft peaks and dips in the torque curve, between 3000 and 4000 rpm ,intrigue me...

01Bullitt, do you have a photo of your engine bay?

Methinks someone has a dyno that reads high... would not be the first time. I'd like to see what that car makes on another dyno. I'm not saying the car isn't making that sort of power or doesn't have something else going on like cams and a tune done by a previous owner but I know personally if MY bolt on 2V dynoed 294 to the wheels I'd immediately take it to a completely different shop for a confirmation pull.

^this.

The 2008 Bullitt with the 3V engine only delivered 315/325--at the flywheel...

And you were able to do this with 19 lb/h injectors on an otherwise stock engine?

Absolutely fantastic--makes one wonder why Ford felt they needed to use 24 lb/h injectors in the 305/325 fwHP/lb-ft (260 at the wheels) 4V Mach 1s...

I have a awesome tune I built myself, also with 93 octane fuel but 24 lb/h injectors, at 30 ft elevation in Daytona Beach (at Raabe Racing) and all I have been able to muster is 262/305 rwHP/lb-ft. Which by most dyno runs I have personally observed is rather high for a bolt-on 2V. Of course that is with a just plain ol' GT, not a "Bullitt"...

Dude you definitely have something else going on with that car if you are, in fact, making almost 300whp on a 2V. Like I said I'd go take it to a different place and go from there. Your Bullitt should be making right around what Cliffy's car is, maybe like 5wtq more because of the Bullitt intake but you're also a good 30-40lbs heavier because of it haha.

Like I said, not calling BS on your numbers, just your mod list. Any timeslips for this thing? If so what are you trapping?

The previous owner on my car had it dynoed and mine put out 245 and it only had exhaust. I know I didn't gain 25 from exhaust but I do know that some motors perform just a hair better than others if the same make. I'm now up to 275 on a dyno but my torque numbers are only 302. But me having 275 doesn't mean anything when I can't get my car running right lol

275 is really good but as I've been saying all thread, all dynos are not created equal. And lol totally agree it does not mean a damn thing if it doesn't run. A 1/4 time or lap time is what really proves how fast your car is. That's why I laugh at all these "get me to 300whp" threads that pop up on here or the corral or wherever. Like if they get 296 it'll be some sort of disaster. Plenty of cars making way less power on the dyno and running better times due to any number of things. I've seen cars with stalled automatics making nearly 100whp less than the stick car they line up against just RAPE them down the 1/4 mile. I can put a bus length on a Hemi Charger right off the line and I'm making what like 100hp less or more if its a SRT? I've got suspension, sticky tires and gears so yeah perfect illustration of this although I am not bragging about beating a Charger... they are slow fat pigs although the owners seem to think they are the fastest things in the world...

Yeah I got mine down to a 13.1 with a amazing 60 foot when it was running good lol now I probably can't get a 14. I've beat plenty of other mustangs that claim they are 300 plus

And believe it or not but the 4 inch cowl hood helped me top end speed over the stock hood. I mean it gave me 1 mph and .1 on the track but aero means a lot with these cars not just power.
