We received a call from a customer who had just installed a newly built big block engine in their hot rod; but experienced constant backfiring and the car just wouldn’t rev. Inspection found that several timing related components were far off from where they should have been; resulting in a significant loss of power. Set everything up properly and the car now does 400 horsepower dyno pulls all day.
If you are going to install a supercharger or turbocharger on your vehicle; you need more fuel. Kenne Bell makes a reliable boost a pump that can be easily mounted in an out of sight location and once properly set may never need to be adjusted or fussed with again; just quietly working away in the background. This one was installed behind a trunk trim panel in an ’07 Mustang.
Today this super clean 1985 Ford Mustang GT came to us for a baseline dyno run; just to see what kind of power it was making. Its a one owner car that has had several mods done over the years but still wears the original paint; except for the custom cowl induction hood.
At just above 4800 RPM on the full throttle pull; the engine was getting starved for fuel. It is now getting an upgraded Bosch fuel pump and a programmable MSD ignition controller so we can squeeze even more ponies out.
Customer stated the rear end of his Mustang was clunking terribly; upon inspection it was found that the rear track arm bar was disconnected and in need of repair. Our fabricator was able to successfully weld the components back together and get it down the road.
This Mustang came in to us with customer concerns of intermittent turn signals and an inoperative horn. After inspection and testing; we confirmed a faulty switch and wiring to blame. Replaced the switch and all is functioning well now.
