Any new info on return systems or is fuel cell still the only way to push over 350hp?

For some reason when me and Tom were datalogging my fuel pressure dropped pretty low in 4th gear... Like 20psi low. Anyone else ever have that problem? I can't be the fuel filter but could possibly be the fuel pump, anyone replace there svt pump and at what mileage did you do it?


Looking to be home by May to complete this bad boy and turn up the turbo!



Thanks in advance,

Anthony
Hey Anthony, I am glad the engine is running better now. Make me proud. lol

A link to the car running? I've got a video of it idling before it left my house. As far as a build thread goes there is one on here. But he is currently breaking the engine and clutch in so there is not much to see

hate to disappoint you guys but i dont really have any vids of the car running or anything like that right now. ive been so covered up with work and working on my wedding (which is in a month) that i haven't even had time to get with tom to do a cursory tune just to drive the car to break it in yet. we got together shortly a few weeks ago and found out i melted a wire on the o2 sensor because the heat shield slipped off and melted on the down pipe and i had to fix that before we could proceed. i might have time today if he is available. the little bit the car has ran it idles just fine and fuel pressure holds steady. no issues at all to phone home about. i say give me about 2-3 months and ill have plenty of videos to go around of the ugly little bastard. i want to get it on the track this season as much as possible too. i have no idea when i will be able to get it on a dyno though. i might just do datalogging with tom to tune it for now and then get the services of a local dyno to see what it puts down.

and im very pissed too btw tim. just came across a fully built zetec WITH that damned cfm billet oil pump gear that i waited so long for for $5500. if that had come along about this time last year it would have saved alot of time and effort. i could have just gotten the turbo kit and fuel system from you and brought the car home and done a motor swap and we could have been done LOL

before im completely done i still need a good P&P head, intake mani, oil pump gear, and twin disk. that will all come next year or the year after though more than likely. i want to get used to the car as it is and thoroughly wear that 6 puck out before i go to bump it up a notch. hell who knows it might already be too much for me as it is.
