Thats What She Said
That engine look beautiful.
What are you trying to do to make the SVT Intake work with the Zetec ECU/PCM ?- I still have some work to do to finalize the conversion to the SVT intake so it will be compatible with the Zetec computer.
Hey Tom,What are you trying to do to make the SVT Intake work with the Zetec ECU/PCM ?
The switch over point is 5300 SVT stock , you more then likely never get below 43-4500 so you wouldnt have to do anything , in the relaxed position the SVT intake is in the high RPM side
Thanks Tom. Give me your thoughts on the benefit of a harmonic balancer versus a UDP on a Zetec. I've never had a harmonic balancer on it - had the UDP when I bought it and ran it for two track seasons that way. Never seemed to have an issue, but I am not super familiar with the finer points of the Zetec. I have run light pulleys on drag motors, but I have always (except for this motor) run a harmonic balancer on endurance/road race motors.I sure wish you would throw that UDP in the trash and put the harmonic balancer back on
Love the parts
Internal or external balance has NOTHING to do with a Harmonic balancer , your showing a total lack of understanding about what your talking aboutThe Zetec is internally zero balanced. The crank pulley is just that - a pulley. Harmonic "balancers" are used for balancing and engine.
LOL , LOL An external balanced engine means it has weights on the balancer , Flywheel or both and again has NOTHING to do with how or what a harmonic balancer does/works , whats hilarious about your statement is the FLUID in a Fluid Damp Balancer is there to help control the Engines Harmonics better vs the stock rubber in the stock Harmonic Balancer About Fluidampr you might want to read this , everyone thinking of a UDP should read the 2 links I put in hereEven Fluidamper has stated the only thing better than their pulley is an internally zero balanced engine. Even Ford Racing sold UDPs. We've got millions of miles on our personal and customer vehicles with no ill effects.
" few " meaning ?hpA UDP will show a few HP on a dyno, and of course the reduced weight on the rotating assembly will allow it to rev faster.
I've got a good size power steering cooler with dedicated forced air, and it seemed to work well for the last two track seasons. I may move it and provide a better forced air path because I need the space where it is currently located for something else.Its a pain to press off and on but there is a UDP PS Pump pulley to slow the pump down but they dont make a big difference in fluid temps , that with cooler helps a lot tho
