Just got back from Tom's final run dynoed at 171.3 hp and 137ft torque
. Went to spray and had a few problems
but everything is all good now.
By the way this is N/A.

So is the 171 with or without the N20? I'm not following "this" in the last sentence...Sounds pretty powerful either way, nice job. Peace

look at torque...it's NA.

Impressive. You got a graph? Or at least peak HP RPM'S?

kinda curious.

tho

This run was without nitrous. And needless to say I don't have nitrous on my car anymore.

The Bizarre thing to me is such a Big HP # w/ that kind of TQ #.
At Tom's I Dyno'd about 118 HP, but about 128-130 TQ.
How do things get so Lopsided?

Because you have to sacrifice TQ to be able to Make high HP...

I thought HP was sort of a Function of TQ, and it was just a Question of how the curves are shaped??

I will retain comment until mods are posted, although i'm assuming these include a built bottom end and some other things along those lines in order to cope with the 150 shot of nitrous.

Can you post or scan a dyno printout? that would answer a couple of questions I have, at least.

Michael, you know how HP is tq * rpm/5250?

THis means that above 5250 rpm's, torque is multiplied rather tahn reduced (engine rpm/5250 >1). SO, say his peak torque and peak HP occured at the same RPM...then that RPM would be at roughly 6800 RPM. Your car on the other hand as a much lower torque/HP peak, so the multiplicative factor is smaller (engine rpm/5250 <1). HOpe that made sense. If not, ask your stepdad

10.5:1 JE pistons, eagle rods, ford racing head, ford racing intake manifold, crower stage 2 cams, FCTB 65mm, fc header and flex pipe, magnaflow exhaust, fc 2pc pullies, FC cam gears set at +2intake and -4 exhaust which gave about 13 to 14hp and 8 ft torque, FC cai with out the box, 30# injectors and a 70 pro-m. yes I do have a copy of the dyno run. Give me till tonight and I will post a pic.

Thanks.
I knew what you were saying, but had forgotten the details.
Your "Reminder Explanation" was perfect.

WOW!
That means with what I got and will have I'm gonna be more than happy. Not too fond of the tq #'s though. I always thought N/A was all about tq. Impressive though.

Hey Cannon, can you run regular 87 octane through that engine or do you use the premium stuff?
