Here is the 1st dyno I got after the install... It was lean starting at 4200 Rpm and by 6000 it was way lean 13.6 AFR . Target is 11.4.

I have since fixed the lean issue But I have to get a new dyno run. Ill be getting it soon. I expect atleast 25-30 more HP and TQ?? Check out the torque curve of the kenne bell!!! got love it.

I plan on getting water/meth injection and bumping up the boost to
12ish psi... That should crank out pretty good.

Its not a very good picture but... The first run file was shut down way early, so disregard that one. Dont forget this is through 37" tires also...

The net increase was about 80RWHP and 80RWTQ...

You can pretty mush see right at 4200 rpm the torque starts diving and the hp starts to taper off. Thats because it was lean. I cant wait to get it back on the dyno!

Very good, very clean work. I really do wish that we had a little more room to add boost easier. Keep going, inspiration is helpful.

Thanks guys for the compliments....

Redranger4.0:
Stock mustang 5.0 engines are dogs. They only come with 225 HP and thats at the crank not the rear wheels. The beauty of them however, is they are easy to get horsepower out of them. When my 5.0 was stock it only dynoed 196 HP through my drivetrain... It has alot left in it. These dyno numbers were also very lean 13.6:1 AFR. I should be able to get it back on the dyno soon and see better results now that it has been richened up. Also, water methanol, 12psi,and some more timing should be worth another 100 or so rear wheel hp.... The stock heads are Very restrictive

It was running super duper lean with 6psi. Just getting the bugs worked out should make the numbers you are expecting.

Looking good Tim. A 4wd drive train and 37" tires eat a bunch of power. Swap some 31"s on there for a dyno run and I bet you would see the numbers go up.

Ditto, I expect to lose 50-75hp in my 4WD also. I will have more than the low boost Eaton XP8's, but not the 350RWHP+ that would show in a Mustang. Making a heavy truck fast is a whole lot tougher than a light sports car.

Yeah the AWD is a killer sometimes, but other times I'm real glad I have it.

I love the full time traction, hopefully the BW4406 clutches have a long lifespan.

I hope to be at TDS! Right now I am scrambling trying to find a cheap used 4.88 for the dana 30. I changed my rear not to long ago and I got to match up the front. Im not going unless I can get it matched up.... Problem is, im broke right now, . I hate to even spend any money on that axle because my full width axles are just waiting to go in I need to win the lottery!

IIRC, you had unmatched gears the first year we saw you at TDS!
