I'm well aware of the difference between rear wheel HP and crank rated HP.Mercury lied. Advertised 302 at the crank... just sales talk. Real World Horse Power........260....on a good day.
Coils really don't do anything on a stock motor, what is the 'tune' (Professionally dyno tuned, or canned tune? If canned, what brand), What brand CAI?, What gear (and who installed it)? And why would a swaybar help your power?I did coils, tune, gears, cai, sway bars,.... still won't light the tires up. wondering if its time to stop pretending.
LeoVampire is running a water system with 3 jets in the lower intake and ALOT of headwork (all done on a flowbench)Wow the hp numbers are even lower than I thought....242 hp stock??
Looks like a 4.6 is too small but drill em out and it can be done
isnt Leo Vampire using some sort of water or meth kit to double down ??
This is what I'd do... Spend $1000 on bolt-ons and what are you going to end up with? A power band that's moved up which will likely yield you even less low end torque and a mediocre horsepower gain or supercharge it and get more horsepower and an assload of torque.Gonna throw 3 to 4 thousand at it this winter?
For 3 to 4 thousand, you can just Eaton swap the sucker. Be at 380 to 440 rwhp and call it done.
I'm at 400rwhp 410tq, stock exhaust and full emissions with my Eaton swap. All parts and a dyno tune cost me a cunt hair over $4,000.
I couldn't agree with you more!If you want it to roll the tires put a 3500 converter in it.
You need to get the motor in the power for it to run.
Ford fucked these cars for grunt. Take your motor that makes the least low end torque, stick it in your heaviest car and saddle it with a tight converter and moderate gear.
