finally getting tuned!!!

whats up peoplee.. well im finally done with this long process that has taken me a year to get my parts and have enough to install and get it tuned.
im curious of what my numbers will come out too..
my mods:
-evo3big16g turbo
-565cc pinks
-255 wlbro fuel pump
-helix tmi
-ap v1
-down pipe
-tbe
-up pipe
-headers
- aem cai
-samco turbo inlet
i think thats pretty much it. its not as much but im hoping i get close to 300 at least because i dont want my srt4 homies to still keep whooping my butt...
so now im just waiting for my dyno tune and it will be ready by this week coming up..
ill keep you guys posted with the numbers..

You should brake 300whp. But it depends on the tuner. Im going to go ahead and assume that Cali has some good tuners though. Good luck with everything.

Depends on what kind of dyno you get it done on also, if its on a dynojet or dynopack I believe both read significantly higher then the mustang dyno so I would find that out so your not super disappointed if its done on a mustang dyno and only makes 260whp or something like that

Dynapack...if I remember correctly. The type that hooks up to the hubs. Nothing wrong with it. Its just going to read higher than a mustang dyno and it's going to be HP at the hubs. Not at the wheels. Anyone can feel free to correct that statement. But, that's what I can recall about it.

There is nothing wrong with a Mustang Dyno. Mustang is a company that makes dynos, it has nothing to do with the Ford Mustang car. Most people will respect your numbers more if you use a Mustang dyno versus a Dynojet or Dynapack since it has a reputation as the most conservative.

A friend of mine with similar mods put down 300 whp 260 tq on a Dynapack with 93 Octane. You might be a little less on 91.

This is hard to understand. If you are saying that your turbo doesn't spool until 5k rpm then that is not normal. If you are saying you lose boost after 5k rpm then you maybe upgrade to a 3 port BCS?

You should hit full boost by 3500-4K.

nope my car hit fulll boost until like 5k rpm. my mechanic told me that the turbo i gave him has a huge turbo lag and he does not knoe why. i can feel the turbo kick in like at 35k but it hits super hard untill 5k. its pretty weird and kind of sucks. cus other cars willl be in boost way before me

Did you install a better BCS? What brand of headers do you have?
