Today i took the trip up to bluepower in the xr6, fg intake manifold bolted on ready for a retune wasnt quite sure how successful this manifold would really work... As ussual chris dropped me off to the mall, watched the new batman movie, ran circles around the centre looking like a noob but eventually i get the call with fantastic news. Keep in mind that previous tune was done with 3.45's (now 4.11's) with a catback exhaust change from xr6t to gt system (same size as far as i know) of 160.2rwkw. So off to bluepower we go, checked the dyno readings. First run before tune lands a 168rwkw WITH the fg manifold, but after 2hrs of "magic" chris managed a final reading of 179.6rwkw!!! A really surprising result, still amazed right now. Goes to show ford did a great job with this manifold. I havent been able to give her a good run as the roads are just way too *moist* give her some throttle just wheelspins, hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. But 1 thing i have noticed is the midrange feels very strong over the ba bbm.
Enjoy some pictures...
Theres still improvement to be made, may need to experiment with the manifold actuator to try remove that "dip" from change of plenum volume. Will be an interesting task. Thanks again Chris! Im sure to be back sometime soon.
So whats next in the n/a devolopment?...
Sorry to the big forced, v8 boys if i bored ya haha
