High compression and boost dont mix. you can maybe put 8 psi into this motor and thats about it. 280 (maybe) whp for another 5000. When a base ST starts at 24,900.

You cant get a base focus for under 20,000 that will compare to the ST base
As a general rule of thumb, what's the relationship between boost pressure and HP gains? That is, if you boost an engine 5psi how much of an increase can one expect if the starting point was 160HP?

The best systems make 10-12whp per pound of boost on our motors

People must remember your not adding a turbo on top of the 165-170whp that came from the bolt ons... Those get removed so you back at adding power from your factory mark.

Sort of, adding an SC removes the intake, but doesn't remove the header or exhaust. I see your point, guess I'll just get an ST... Boo...

Just kidding.

Do you have the ability to log fuel pressure?

All I have to say after looking at the graphs is HOLY SHIT... This car runs 13+ AFR under WOT thats not a good sign.... That means with tuning were not going to see crap for extra HP on the same gas... Its running Super lean lowend Way to lean which means we can get hp and tq up BIG TIME at 3500-5000rpm mark but past that by bringing it to 12.8-13.0 afr we may see a whole 3-4whp maybe on 87... 93 with higher timing is another story.

could that be due to the openness of the fswerks design pulling a lot of air in?
