Nice to see you finally make it!! :D This is the guy that makes my life a lot easier. He's the one that has all the hard work when a car is being dyno'd. I just set up the computer, and do the run! A lot of thanks goes to him at the end of a good dyno day!!!!

as of rite now i dont have anything i would call high performance i had a 95 z a couple years back that was alot of fun .Im actually looking into 99 or newer 2 wheel drive truck. to put 70 mm turbo on it and keep it stock looking with quiet exhaust. it would sure piss alot of people off getting eaten up by a stock looking truck ,lol :grin

Hey there Harold! That is very respectible for the 80's muscle. Remember you need to compare that to the mid 80's camaro and firebird with the massive 305 sporting 200 or so HP at the flywheel.

Yes Thomas I know...I made the comparison with Glenn at the shop with the Chevy 5 liter. It wasn't much better...but does go to show how chevy stepped it up a notch, ford tried to with its modular motor and still can't come close to the ls motors even with 4 valves per cylinder....

yeah the only way to get a 4 valve to make power is by putting forced air to them. its been proven and you have to run them to 6 grand before they make any power at all.

as much as it pains me to say it the Ford 5.0 will beat the snot out of a chevy 5.0. IMO that is the best motor Ford has ever build, and at the rate they are going it may be the last good motor they ever build. the 90-92 305 was a pretty good engine, pound for pound I think it was better then the L98 but they can't handle the kind of power you can pump through that damn 302.

Even though this *may* be accurate, I call for a :bann just for uttering such things.
