In for some timing and carb adjustments is a super cool and clean ’68 Dart; 340 4 speed car. A properly spec’d carb, jetted and calibrated for the engine, and some distributor work made a nice, easy to drive car that now runs as good as it looks.
We had a car dealership up near Seattle contact us regarding our tuning services for a Roush Mustang they had traded in. Someone had installed an Edelbrock E-Force supercharger; but never had it tuned and never included a tuner. Immensely underpowered and running poorly; we retuned the vehicle with an SCT tuner and made it into a reliable, power making machine.
After having a Stage 3 cam from Comp Cams installed; the factory MDS was causing loss of power and performance. We created a tune file for the vehicle disabling the MDS and were able to tune the Hemi to make power to an impressive 6390 rpm as opposed to the 5200 rpm limit when we first got it.
After making a strong 403 horsepower run on the dyno; the customer was happy with the results and the car is going to be turning heads with its new lumpy idle and howl from the Corsa exhaust out the back. Under the hood shows the custom painted engine cover in classic Hemi orange.
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.
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.
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.
