2007 Ford Mustang GT500 Super Snake Check Engine Light

This gorgeous 2007 GT500 Super Snake arrived last week with the check engine light on and multiple codes stored in the system.  Upon inspection found the electronics on the throttle body causing multiple codes.  This car has a Kenne Belle Supercharger fitted by Shelby.

After extensive research we have discovered the Kenne Bell throttle body does not come with any of the electronics, just the throttle body.  After receiving a new factory throttle body from Ford and removing the sensors and installing on the Kenne Bell throttle body this beauty is roaring again.  Customer had lost their initial SCT X4 tuner, so we installed a new one and we still had the original tune from their prior visit a couple years back.  Programmed the new tuner with the previous tune and this amazing car now puts down  690HP to the wheels.

Mustang GT with intake upgrades

We have this 2000 Mustang GT here for some tuning after getting an upgrade from the conservative factory setup. The car now sports a TrickFlow throttle body, K&N cold air intake, and is equipped with an SCT tuner to calibrate the car for the new values.

Spec Miata is a class of racing used in road racing events across the US. The Spec Miata (SM) class is intended to provide the race in low-cost cars with limited modifications; mainly those suitable for racing competition. Regualtions of aftermarket parts and accessories are in place to encourage low cost, production car based competition leveling out the car’s capabilities making it more a test of driver skills.

Today number 308 is here for a dyno run and tune to find the proper air fuel mixtures from idle to redline for power at any point in the race while being within the guidelines. Check out the pop-off Sparco steering wheel and the required cage.

LS3 powered CJ6 gets tuned.

Another local shop brought us this Jeep project after doing a beautiful job putting it together to be tuned and get the engine broke in and sorted out. A fast EFI setup was used and worked great. A single plain manifold modified for port injection was used for induction.

The engine ran pretty rough with the start up file it came in with so we spent some time on the dyno sorting it out. End result was 400rwhp through the th400 and throwing the big tires around. LS power is awesome.

Custom tuning

Here at Fast Specialties the 1750SE Mustang Dyno is the heart of our tuning capability. When it comes to performance evaluation we believe this machine to be head and shoulders above other machines on the market. Our modified 4 post lift allows the dyno to accept long bed and dually trucks without pulling the rear wheels. It will handle and record over 2000whp and statically absorb 500HP, basically whatever you can throw at it, and while running a car for a HP number is fun, its the machines ability to simulate load, maintain steady speeds, and readout torque in real time that makes it such a powerful tuning tool.

The dyno gives us the ability to control the testing environment, but you have to be able to manipulate the car to realize any true performance improvements. Here at Fast Specialties we utilze a wide range of tuning systems. SCT, Diablosport, Megasquirt, Holley, Fast, Accell, and a slew of others. Is your car carbureted? If so we have you covered there as well. Holley modular carbs, Edelbrock/AFB, Weber, Solex, Mikuni, 1 carb, or multi carb, turbo charged/supercharged blow-through or draw-through, e-85, propane, or pump gas, again, you name it and we have probably tuned it.

1965 Shelby Cobra

Got in this beautiful Cobra with a freshly built engine for some fine tuning and adjustments to bring out its full potential.

Changing out the jets on the carb, adjusting the throttle linkage, and getting the timing just right really makes this Cobra pack a punch now. Plus it looks great doing so.

2012 Ford Mustang 5.0 – CAI and tune

A perfect starter package for your modern daily driver or pride and joy; a cold air intake and tuner are a great pair that delivers performance you can feel and a sound you will love. Factory intakes have several pathways and air restrictors inside of them to slow down and in some cases block airflow for a quiet, almost no-noise intake sound.

While that may be preferred for some, the rest of us like hearing our V-8s breathe. Call today to get your quote on a tuner and CAI package today!

Turbo Volvo 740 tuning

We have this super nice Volvo 740 here for some tuning work to be completed using Megasquirt software. The car is already a great running car and was needing some fine tuning to be dialed in. Numbers we’re shooting for are about 250 rwhp at 11 psi. IMG_0931
