42"s are going to be tight depending on your RPM limit. Plus the spray is piss-poor. Honestly you're further ahead picking up an EV6, Deka or ID are easy to tune.

I've had good luck with running 60# base vs the stock 39#. Runs noticeably better actually. Then again I'm not running as much compression as you ... stock zetec pistons and -0.045" off the head.


Things I'm curious on,

Clearance specs between head and pistons? (really hoping you clayed it and measured)
(I want hicomp pistons but I fear I'll have major clearance issues)

The NO2 setup, what did it set you back?
(It's my next move but I want to do a sandwich plate between the FRIM rather than drill into the manifold, bottom feed also)


I've been pump E85 for going on 5 years now. No issues.

im thinking that as well on the 42's its a set i had laying around. i have a set of 60's but its ev6 and currently im to lazy to fix that issue at the moment lol

i did clay it but i dont remember the specs. i had plenty of room with the cams installed straight up. now once i started moving the cams around things got tight.
the n20 kit was cheap. i bought a v8 direct port kit. used half of it and sold the other half for almost what i paid for it

Just get the Ford Racing adapters --> http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustan...tV1&adtype=pla

That's exactly what I'm using with my PZEV injectors.

UPDATE:

to the OP above... stumbled upon a issue with domed pistons..lol

was farting around working on the tune last night and car was just not running right. changed out the injectors but no help. i used a infared heat gun and was checking the temp and the header primaries and was getting readings all over the place. from 500 degrees to 120. so i decided to pull the plugs to see what they look like and the gap on EVERY plug is smashed down to .005" or less.

so i look in there with my bore scope and the dome of the top of my piston is hitting the ground strap of my plugs and closing the gap

so i dig through the back and a grab a set of brisk plugs i have back there for a 5.0 coyote and because they are non prjected tip. they work perfect. same number of threads but the tip doesnt stick out so far. dropped them in and BAM!! runs perfect.... mission accomplished. so in the future either clearance piston for plug of run the coyote plugs lol

i was planning on running the coyote plugs anyway as they offer two and three steps colder plug but was going to wait till i had the n20 hooked up.

Very nice. Got to love it when there is a relatively easy, off-the-shelf to solution to what could be a serious problem.

no kidding, plus i solidified a option for the boosted svt guys for coler plugs :)

just use the brisk racing coyote plugs.

funny thing is the guys that have coyotes and want to supercharge them and needed a step colder use the ford racing plugs which are factory svt focus plugs...lol
