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.
You know we use our dyno here for performance tuning; but did you know we also will perform dyno pulls if you’ve built your own car and just want to see what it does for power and torque? If your vehicle has a wideband; we can also monitor the AFRs as well. Its a great opportunity to This 300ZX took advantage of this service; customer bought the car and just wanted to see what it was putting out.
This ’68 came into our shop this week with some driveability concerns; and after some sorting out we concluded a switch to a better Holley 4bbl carb to replace the malfunctioning Demon double pumper was the best option and the customer agreed. Car runs substantially better now.
In came this very rare factory D-Dart; which was a little know go-fast package right from Dodge.The owner of this one has had it since brand new in 1965! It has fully redone engine; and was converted to a dual carb setup – but when they were rebuilt by another individual; the jets and calibrations were all completely off – making this car run so rich it was smoking even at idle. We have the dual 4’s calibrated and running substantially better now.
This ’73 was brought in to us earlier in the week to set up the newly installed carburetor. Setting up the primaries, installing the proper jets and power valve, then setting up timing on the dyno. Now this car runs as great as it looks.
Specifically built for 1/4 mile racing; this Trans Am is hitting the bottle soon. Brought to us by the customer with the kit ready to install; we are handling the installation of the system here – no tuning.
Cobras always turn heads; in this great blue and white combo it really brings out the curves. It is a replica; however it is a very accurate one even down to the period correct gauges. Its got a modern, warmed up 5.0 powerplant with an electronic engine management system with a 5-speed manual behind it. Awaiting a Stage II clutch and upgraded flywheel.
