Finally Had Chance to Dyno it...

I had a chance to strap down the Foci yesterday at the college I teach at. I gained 70HP with my JRSC and a BBK. Is that right?

I had base-lined my stock motor a few months back after averaging several passes.
Yesterday, we opened up the dyno to the public and let everyone make 1 practice and 2 power passes for $20 just for a fundraiser for our auto club.
Our Mustang dyno has been reading low lately, and guys that showed up just to show off were verifying that we were in fact measuring low. I dynod at 168HP which factors out to 180HP or even a little more at the wheels.

I'm happy, not bad for one day's work, $650 in parts and a tune.

Actually, I think it was a take-off from a wreck and the person that removed it never bothered to grab the supporting parts. It had a few little pieces missing and I had to buy a couple gaskets. In reality, I think I estimated low, it was more like $720 plus the BBK.

I scored the expensive alternator and support brackets for $6, that's not a typo, six bucks on ebay. I made the PS reservoir bracket.

All that I got for $650 was the blower and the manifold.
The BBK pretty much filled in the rest.
I re-coop'd some of the $400 BBK cost because I already had an SVT air box.
I bet I spent $1000 or darn near close to it in total.

Looks good Dan. Add the smaller crank pulley for a couple of extra psi...get's you to 200.

dont you mean larger crank pulley.... or smaller blower pulley....
a smaller crank pulley would result in less psi.

I'm sure he meant smaller blower pulley.

Chalon, where can I buy one?
I'm already running the BBK pulley.

Yes, yes I am!
It's funny how many times that setup changed hands before it finally made it onto a car.
