    EVO 8/9 Pistons in DSM Block

    http://i.imgur.com/oreVytB.jpgThe interesting thing about nitro is it still makes power running rich. Leaning out 0.2 picked up 12whp, and I'm sure there's more power to be had with rpm based boost control.Right now I'm using a MBC and boost goes up 3 psi on the mid range with nitro so I...

    RG's MD500 Mustang dyno. Have done ~1100 pulls on this machine. A 150lb heavier 1g awd did 136mph on 503 whp on this dyno so I'll be looking for 142+ when the track opens in 2015. Does anyone know what the current mph record is on an fp3052?

    Definitely interested to see your results. I test in 3rd gear with no PAU force, so rolling strictly on inertia which gives around 4 seconds on boost. How long does your car see full boost during your dyno pulles?From cbevo.com: 02/09/2011 Buschurs dyno on the BR 2.3 and FPGreen HTA73...

    GSC S3, FP3052, 538whp Mustang dyno

    The difference on my current setup is 12.5%, but would probably be more on a higher flowing turbo. I do have a GTX3076 available for testing, but I'd have to drop it into my FP turbine housing. The car is out of injector though, so I'm looking for a set of ID1000's.

    Still on the FP3052. S90 70mm throttle body, extra wg spring to hold 30psi up top. I have not seen any 3076R make more power than this (622whp Dynojet), but if anyone knows of one, I'd like to hear about their setup.

    Old cams were Comp 100, -2 -2. Did not try moving the S3's around yet. 10:1 2.0, mild porting, stock intake with custom plenum, FP3052. This is on a stock calibration Mustang MD500. The corrected numbers are Dynojet equivalent.
