    Official ET/MPH List

    Oh I did get the 4R70 swap done. I never made it to the track though. Did this on the test drive after new trans was in so I gave up. I have a fully built 4R70 trans with a 2600 stall billet converter sitting here with less than 25 miles on it. Stand alone trans controller to go with...

    Kenne Bell Supercharged Explorer...

    No I'm using the Baumann controller with normal automatic operation. I went with a B&M Hammer shifter and mounted it where the cup holders used to be. I also made a custom fiberglass part where the shifter mounts in the console.

    Kenne Bell Supercharged Explorer...

    I did the 4R70 swap and kept the AWD. You have to use an earlier 4404 transfer case though. Of coarse you have to get a 4R70 with the AWD/4WD tail on it. The stock driveshafts fit and I only needed to make a plate with some holes drilled to get the trans mount bolted in. There is a floor brace...

    Burnout Video Thread

    I know, but it's the only video I had around. I'll get another video after I get the new transmission in it. Too cold and too much snow right now where I live.

    Nothing much here. Just a small burnout the one time I had the front driveshaft out.

    Explorer Sport......very odd timing indeed...

    Good to hear you will be working on another build. I have been kinda absent on here for awhile too. Mine has been broke since June so I didn't have any reason to post. Couldn't afford to fix it on unemployment.

    Trying for 12s in the 1/4 in my Mountaineer!

    I can get pics of whatever you want. Just let me know what you need. I'm away from home this weekend at an all Ford show, but next week I could help. After that you will have to wait a couple more weeks.

    Turbo Mounty is down

    It was running for a couple weeks, but I destroyed something in the transmission again. I lost 3rd gear this time. I drove it out to OH and had dirty dog rebuild it again last week. It looks like this trans is never going to hold up. Trying to find an alternative to the 5r55 that I can also...

    best turbo for a 5.0 remote mount

    For what you want a 60-1, 62-1, T61 would be plenty. A 255 lph fuel pump and larger injectors would be a good idea too.

    It's been running for about a week now. Here are some more pics.

    The line is Fragola performance and yes it is push lock style hose. http://www.fragolaperformancesystems.com/9pushliteracehose/pushliteracehose.html

    Some more progress. I should be able to get the fuel rails and injectors in tomorrow.

    Turbo Mounty is down

    Trying for an 11 something. I'm converting to return style. The blue ones are just -6 AN bulkhead fittings. The brass ones are -6 AN to barb fitting. The rest of the system will be all pushlock fittings.

    Turbo Mounty is down

    Had to have it towed last week. Seems like the fuel pump decided to stop working. I have power into and out of the inertia switch, so everything is good up to that point. Of coarse I had just filled the tank the morning this happened! I'll eventually get the tank emptied and dropped when it...

    The only thing removed is the 3rd row seat. It was 4860# with me in it the last time I had it on a scale. The trans was built by Dirty Dog Performance.

    Official ET/MPH List

    I had a feeling the trans was slipping bad before. The new one shifts now when it's supposed to. The extra boost was part of it too. I did manage a 12.59 with 15 psi though. I will try to get everything dialed in with the tune over the winter. I also have to get a catch can for the trans...

    New best for the turbo Mounty. 1.74 60' 7.935 1/8 88.28 mph 1/8 12.433 1/4 109.2 mph This was with 17-18 psi of boost. I know I can shave some more time off that. I was having problems building boost on the launch. That was run in full street trim just as I drove it there. A...

    2002 4.6 needs a converter.... what is best?

    Here is one that's not too expensive. http://www.dirtydogperformance.com/converters/ford/5r55-n/s/w-/5r55n/prod_19.html

    common 5r55w shifting characteristics? please help!

    The noise may be coming from the torque converter. I'm guessing Ford didn't replace the converter when they changed the transmission.

    Thats should get you a very low 12 in the 1/4 mile. Nicely done! Any pictures of the setup? Looks like I'm going to have to get a bigger turbo for mine now.

    Henson's TurboX RIP!

    Sorry to hear about the truck and boat. At least you are not in the same shape as they are. You can always build another one.

    5R55W/S transmission tuning

    OK, I took some video today. The beginning is just some light throttle (about 1/4). I have a launch from 0-90 mph towards the end. Here is a link.

    5R55W/S transmission tuning

    I'll try to get a video of mine shifting tomorrow. You can compare it to that. I'll even do a boost launch if I can get the camera mounted up someplace.

    5R55W/S transmission tuning

    LOL. If it was only a woman describing that. Is it a bang when it goes into gear or just seems like it wont shift? You will need the Pro Racer Package from SCT or you have to pay your tuner to adjust it (unless he's a nice guy). That is the main reason I tune it myself. Unlimitted tune...

    5R55W/S transmission tuning

    I have finally found some of the relevant parameters in the tune. I have way too much time on my hands now being unemployed, so I put it to good use. Trans Pressure > Target slip time This will firm up the shifts if the numbers in the table are reduced. It refers to the 1-2, 2-3, 3-4, 4-5...

    Update. Went to the track again tonight. Crap hot and humid weather, but I still improved a bit. 1.75 60' 8.25 1/8 82.96 mph 1/8 13.02 1/4 102.62 mph 1/4 I backed it up with a 13.05 but just couldn't manage a 12 anything. Oh so close this time!

    Official ET/MPH List

    Mine is running again and it feels much stronger on the top end. The trans is still shifting wrong though. When I get that figured out, it will be at the track again. I was messing around this past Friday with some friends on the highway. Pinned the speedo and it was still pulling. This thing...

    A high DA (Density Altitude) will have less oxygen in the air and produce a lower horsepower. Your track is at roughly 1000 ft elevation. The DA showed over 3600 ft. above sea level. This is like you running your truck as if the track elevation was 3600 ft. There is a correction for 1/4...

    Official ET/MPH List

    DA was probably hurting your times if it was anything like the current conditions there. I'm guessing this is the track you were at. Current weather information for Heartland Park Topeka in Topeka, Ks temperature = 68 deg f barometer = 29.89 Hg relative humidity = 87 % uncorrected...

    STS Turbo 01 Explorer sport vs v8 S10

    I'll be getting my 5R55W rebuilt when the time comes. I found a guy in CA that will do a built trans. He is the only place in the country that I found that has a hardened input shaft for it. Every other place uses the weak stock 5/8" input shaft. Not sure if they can do much for the 5R55E...

    01 sport - 4.0 SOHC STS turbo charged (Project complete)

    Go with the methanol injection. It will drop intake temps by 60-80 degrees and increase the octane! Every pound of boost adds 10+ degrees to ambient air. Cooler intake temps have a higher air mass.

    01 sport - 4.0 SOHC STS turbo charged (Project complete)

    You are only a few tenths behind me! I better get my 12 second slip soon for some breathing room.

    Found my loss of boost problem!

    I would be happy to see a 12.6 out if this truck. Not sure if it will get that quick unless it gets a bigger turbo. A rollbar isn't needed until 11.49 ET (it used to be 11.99)
  39. M

    Found my loss of boost problem!

    It's back together again! I'm retuning it right now, but I got it pretty close up to 10 psi. I had to add about 5% fuel, so the intake setup is working better. Above 10 psi its really leans out.
