As many of you know, I've had a slew of problems in the past 6 months. From a broken T-5, to a backordered T-56, to a broken timing chain that lead to bent valves. Well I finally got everything back together, finished some much needed wiring, and bought some new nittos. I did put my 3.33in pulley back on (forgot how big that thing was), b/c with the 2.95in the fuel system was not up to it. The ET in the sig is from way back in April '02. At that time I had the 2.95in pulley, stock EEC, T-5 and 3.73s (too much gear). Now I have the PMS, T-56 and 3.55s. Its been a long time since I've raced so I am not expecting much for the first few track visits. With the less boost, if I could get some 11.70s out I will be happy for now. Going to try to go racing sunday night, if I can remember how. I just need some serious track time with the PMS.

The one with the car losing power and torque @ 4600 till 5400 rpms. I lose near 40 to the wheel w/ no change in the air/fuel??


But back to you. What are you expecting?? 11.00 to 11.40's??

Good luck:D

Troy,
wasn't you seeing 13psi with the 2.95' pulley? What do you predict you'll be seeing with that larger 3.33", about 10? Tell you what, when I raced last and ran [email protected] with a 3.85' pulley and 10#'s of boost the car felt ok, however when I put on a 3.55" pulley and see about 13psi now, it is a huge difference in power. ( Don't know what my point is )
Just saying that there is a huge difference in the power between 10psi and 13psi in my opinion, and I am sure you will be able to tell the difference. I honestly believe that there is about a 3-4 mph gain with the additional 3psi with my combo, so I'd say easily the same with you.

let us know how you do

later

Dan

SilverGT:...no no no...I think 11.60-11.70s will be good enough with this big pulley. Forgot how big that thing is..lol.

Dan: The reason I put the big pulley back on is this: 1. not enough fuel system with the added boost (was seeing 14-15 with the other pulley) 2. I feel more comfortable, for now, with the bigger pulley with the motor and tuning with the PMS. I just got this motor running again and I want it to last a bit, so if that means slowing down the car then so be it. I know this was a long time ago, but with this 3.33in pulley, Cobra intake, stock 60mm tb, stock EEC...I went 11.87 @ 120 in July heat. So I think 11.60s should be attainable. I just know I am going to be a little rusty the first few passes. I'll let ya know, if the numbers aren't too embarrasing...lol.

J-M Cain: Well I went with the PMS for a few reasons. It is very simple to use, and I love having the boost tables. I really liked the TwEECer and think it is a great product. But I didn't like having a set timing curve and fuel curve. I just feel more comfortable with the PMS. Like I said before, the boost tables really make things easy when doing the timing curve. I just set up the boost table and boost retard and then go back and fine tune it in the WOT tables....pretty straight forward.

94BLOWNCOBRA: Tranny feels great, like butter on the street and even better at WOT. No I haven't powershifted it yet, nor will I ever power shift it...lol. I just don't powershift my trannies.

I only know of two EFI Systems dealers...Total Performance and Anderson Ford Motorsport. I know AFM sells the kit for $789 + ~$50 for the MAP sensor. I bought mine from Total Performance for $725 + ~$40 on the MAP sensor. You can go to EFI Systems' website and download the manual to check it out.

Troy

Damn Troy, I saw the title of this thread, then your name, and I was all excited to see your new numbers(!) Only to realize you habven't gone yet. Dough!

Have you done any tuning yet with the PMS? It took me awhile before I started wringing some good power out of mine (didn't want to get to agressive right off the bat;))

If you want, we can always share some set points and see how each of us have ours tuned.


Good luck sunday (I'll be waiting for your thread)

BTW- Its 7 degrees out here and we have several inches of snow on the ground. Thats right. Seven Degrees.:rolleyes: Have fun at the TRACK. :(

Bishop, we should definitely share information. But just to clarify, I still have yet to install a fuel system or the 55lb injectors. One of these days I will have the money to buy the fuel system. Just sucks that my rearend is peg-legging (maybe), and I need the fuel system. I'm still trying to decide my next purchase. I need to see how the rearend reacts sunday, and I will go from there. As for the PMS, I am loving it very much and can't wait to get on the track with it. My buddy made a nice lil bracket for the PMS so I can monitor the O2s going down the track till I get the wideband.

All the settings that I currently have are for my 36lb/hr injectors along with my old combo, so it should be somewhat close to what you have.

I shoot you a spreadsheet via email later today that includes all my settings so you can compare.
