My friend who is big into cars is about to port and polish the heads on his Mustang, and offered to do mine while he’s at it, as long as I help him… YAY!!! Anybody think they wanna guess at how much power I might see come of this???
Caling JohnP…Calling JohnP…here’s a question for you! ^^^
In terms of power gain its negligible unless you have other power adders in the system like a new intake, intake manifold, P & P throttle body, bigger MAF, just to get the air in. Then a header and a good exhaust to get the bad out. Nothing is really going to add a massive amount of hp unless you have an entire series of mods or forced induction. A P & P by itself no miracle power adder.
Well duh… lol. Yeh, I already have an intake… big whoop. But I guess I should get that other stuff done too, ey? Probly won’t be hard to get my friend to P&P my throttle body… I know the Focus racing manifold can be made to fit on our car… P&P that too… but where can I get a bigger MAF???
Hey none of us know what you did to your car first so we don’t know what to tell you anyway. A new MAF can be made by most custom shops if they swing the escort way but that can only be used with a new fuel management system, larger injectors, prob a bigger fuel pump, maybe add a proper fuel return system.
You can get a bigger MAF on EBAY with out any problems. Look for a Mustang MAF; just be sure about which one you need and what they are calibrated for. I just won a 70mm MAF for $51 plus shipping. But I needed a MAF with the IAT sensor too. That meant I need a 6-pin setup as apposed to the older 4-pin.
If you have the 4 pin it will be much easier to get a MAF and cheaper. But if it has the 6-pin like mine, I had to wait for 2 weeks before I could bid on one. Just keep an eye out for one, that’s all. I have found that they really didn’t implement the 6-pin setup until about 2000 or 2001.
oh yeah if yah need a head work done we can do any and all porting and polishing, installation over oversized valves…etc
