[QUOTE=djzx3;1358171What's the Mark making for wheel HP?[/QUOTE]
Honestly, I don't know. Last year before the Cobra intake swap, I had it pulled on a dyno just for numbers(no tuning) by a guy for $50. He couldn't get the converter to lock fully and it made 242rwhp. With my stall, the only way to get a good pull is to have the tuner actually go into the software and command a full lock on the converter not to mention we seemed to determine by the graph that some timing was being pulled up top by the knock sensors because there was a bad warble at the end of the graph. I have since put in a colder plug to hopefully resolve that issue but since it hasn't been on the dyno since, I don't know if that issue is still there or what numbers I have gained since the intake swap. I do know that the stock intake was VERY restrictive compared to the Cobra intake. Less volume and the lower plenum was fed air by two silly oval ports. The Cobra intake has a lot more volume, better runners, and my buddy did some minor port work on the lower.
If I was to guess, I would say it has about 255rwhp at this point. With some refinements before next year and a dyno tune, I hope to be around 270rwhp. I am very curious as to what the car is doing in the AFR department. Another Gen2 Lincoln guy did the same swap recently and found out he was running rich at the top of his shifts. I could have a vast array of tuning issues at this point that I won't know of until it gets dyno tune. Two things that I do know of with the current tune is that the shift points are too low and the converter locks way too early in third gear. All of my runs were manually shifted, so I was able to get the rpms that I wanted to see but the lock-up issues were still there. I was able to decrease the intensity of the lock-up into third at the track by shifting into the gear at a higher rpm though which did help with my trap speeds. But, it won't truly be right until it hits the dyno. I have determined that lock-up should occur at ~95mph as opposed to the ~80mph where it wants to lock now.
