Moved to the Forced Induction chat area


Plan on a built lower end, rod and pistons and upgraded fuel system as the return less style that we have won't hit those numbers, it maxes out around 350hp if I remember right.

^^Bhahahaha


Yes, plan on spending some money if you want some hp. You don't want to skimp out on some parts to only have them break and take out all your other parts so when trying for big numbers like that it's best to buy quality parts.

While you're dropping that much money in it, just make it a v8.

Does the returnless fuel system on the Duratecs also top out around 350? I had planned on building a full fuel system, but my power level goal has changed. If I can make 250-300 on the stock fuel system (obviously upgrade injectors) I'll just do that.

Should be the same since the fuel pumps and stuff are the same. Your limited to about 250hp without a built block.

I'm building a dedicated turbo motor right now. Just waiting on paychecks to keep the build going! I will unfortunately have to replace the turbo itself, so that will be a minor financial setback in the motor build. Should be done by September though if all goes well.

I think 320 is the limit of the stock fuel system, I'm sure someone will chime in with an actual answer.
