Daryl's back!

Yeah, post up your dyno graph whenever you get it done. Which tune will you be running at the dyno? Be sure to bring along a USB memory stick along so Doug can give you the run files. Then you can download the free viewer and play around with the CF's and smoothing.

Also, good thing you trimmed your Shaker shroud now. When hooking up to the dyno, he'll need to attach a pick-up sensor to the #1 coil pack. For me, I had to remove my whole Shaker as they couldn't reach up far enough to attach the sensor.

Doesn't matter, I'm becoming a pro at removing and installing that thing. Will have to remove it once more in a week or two when I install the CMDP's.

Just got a call - my transmission is in! I go tonight to pick it up at the FedEx Freight facility. Luckily, it's only about 25 minutes away in Orlando.

They're awesome of course. I don't really need convincing when it comes to gears what I need is $$$$. The ride along with Bill was more of a joyride than a sales pitch.

I posted our vid up on the main 2005-2009 thread. Let's see what kind of feedback we get.

Well, I've finally been green lighted for a tune and CAI... I may even be calling Doug tomorrow!

I will most likely order a JLT with a 93 Race, 93 Preformance and a 87 tune as well on an Xcal2.

For anyone interested, here's some pretty cool calculators.

Supercharged HP Calculator
Input your base rear wheel horsepower, boost pressure, type of blower and see an estimate of your new horsepower. Calculator takes into account adiabatic efficiency of different blower types (roots, centrifugal, twinscrew, etc.) as well as the effects of charge cooling.


Mustang GT 05+ V6 Gear Calculator
With this calculator you can find out the exact speed you should be in each gear given gears, tires and rpm. Change axle ratio, wheel size, tire characteristics, rpm and see the impact on mph!


Effective Gearing Calculator
With the Effective Gearing Calculator, you can see how much your effective rear axle ratio goes up or down with changes to rear tire diameter. Simply input your original and new tire sizes along with your axle ratio, and the calculator shows you "effective gearing" with the tire swap.


Wheel and Tire Calculator
Swapping out rim and tire combinations? This calculator allows you to compare total tire diameter, sidewall height and tread width between any two wheel and tire options!


Top Speed Calculator
Find out the aero-drag limited top speed of the 05+ Mustang with different horsepower and gearing scenarios.

Hey all! Busy as usual for me. I've been watching the thread, just haven't had anything to add. Great vid Bill! Zach instantly went "that's me!!!" impressive numbers on the dyno! Had to push the harley 2 miles home last night (I just sold my trailer). Blew out the ignition fuse due to a short in the starter switch in the handlebars, so I'll be ripping that apart later this week. Big tough biker pushing his scooter home down the sidewalk! Thank god it was dark and not many folks around, plus nobody from the neighborhood saw me (I Think). Let the games commence.
