List your mods and post pictures of your sheets so people can see what's possible with what!

Edit by DanG: The discussions should go to PMs or separate threads. This thread should be dyno plots only, to keep it readable. I'm pulling all the extra posts out.

Here is mine. I think there was something funny going on with my engine when it was done; in particular I wonder if the alternator started causing problems at the top end (though it certainly doesn't look it).

This is a completely stock MTX V6 Cougar except for a K&N Drop-in Filter and Ford Racing 9mm plug wires. The plugs and wires were new as of a few months before this dyno was done. The UIM and LIM had never been cleaned and the car had over 60,000 miles on it.

(Not a real good graph, I know. I'm working on producing a better one.)

I don't have adyno sheet like yours, I just have the one that came with my car.

It's a naturally aspirated 2.5l, runs with a Ford ecu and the emissions have been taken off. I think its okay and it goes quick enough, but it is a bit loud, :evil:.

I had this car on a dyno over the weekend and it is down to minimal mods as follows.
MSDS Headers
BAT Pipe
Open air filter
93 octane tunes
new autolite double plats
FMS 9mm wires
Car has stock exhaust with cats and all I was actually impressed.

According to the Dyno operator, he said that I left a lot of power on the table because it appears that the PCM makes the car go super rich at around 5.3k rpm. He believes it's because the PCM thinks the CAT is burning up since it sees a long haul at WOT, so it dumps gas at it. Noticing the Cougars dyno'd that day, those with SVT PCM's had almost straight line A/F. They too also went rich at 5.3k rpm but it was almost negligible. A Cougar with the same power mods but with the SVT PCM and 19lb injectors ran 159 hp.

I need to get a SVT PCM, 19lb injectors, and some new plug & wires (it dyno'd on the originals) lol. 89k miles.



MODS: MSDS Headers + Y-pipe, K&N SRI, Trubendz dual Borla.

Best of 3, 146.4 hp, 140.0 wtq.
