Picked up the V form Epp today with the new ProCharger & kooks tubes.
When I got there to pick it up they said they were just getting 4 lb boost & it dyno'd @ 435 rwhp, So they changed the pulley from a 4.25" to a 4" &
all of the sudden we had the 8 lb boost & here are the results from the Mustang dyno
Also my friend that took me to pick it up in his new vette couldn't believe it when I blew his doors off on the way back

508 rwhp
458 rwtq

Sorry, Having trouble getting the scan right so you can see it clearly,
but if you look close you can see it

Looks like a Whipple charger...the slats below the windshield scream late '80s early '90s but not sure about make and model...

Lightning

Nope, not a lightning but close. It's a 2004 product. Little serial number plate on the firewall is a giveaway.

First clue: it's a V8 .....that help :)

It looks like a SOHC Mustang. My guess is it's a Saleen.

Definitely a Ferd...not Cobra.

Congrats to AngLe, it's my '04 SC281SC Saleen, great guess, that was quick. How'd you know? Funny thing is, I took the cover off this weekend to start it up and damn is that steering tough and the clutch peddle feels like a truck compared to my V. Fun and very fast car nonetheless. I do love it (for a Ford) and have high hopes it'll be worth a butt-load of cash one day at Barrett Jackson.

The hood prop gave it away as far as it being a mustang and I knew it wasn't a cobra by the location of the alt. (I have an 03 Cobra) and with the plaque I figured it had to be either a Saleen or a Roush.

Here's the best I could do on short notice, The Guys @ EPP know there stuff & are really great to deal with

Below are some shots of my V the day after picking it up
508 RWHP
458 RWTQ Acually better than I expected, I was hoping for 500 rwhp & got 508

Don't have the stage III on yet, that is scheduled for saturday 1/20/06
Really need it bad & maybe some different tires , Any thing below 60 mph is serious wheel hop when you nail it

Even with my Stage III, it hops LIKE MAD in first and second gear (at any speed in those gears)

450+ rwtq is just too much for the street in this car in my opinion without some other mod/consideration.

Do you get the hop with TC on and off?

I get hop regardless, especially with TC off.

Very nice, at 8psi you are leaving about 100RWHP on the table. I presume you kept you motor and did not build the bottom-end, still very nice. What is the max boost you can get out of the ProCharger, as I am looking into one for my C6.

Boost capablity, that's probably one of the main reasons I chose the ProCharger over Maggie, Since I am planning on alotta work on the bottom end & I wanted to be able to raise the boost to much higher levels later.
And it is my understanding that the ProCharger is capable of boost levels as high as 25 psi. Of course the other work on the bottom end is pending my being able to get the drive train to handle the HP & Torque I already have & right now the wheel hop is a major issue, hope the stage III helps & I am making a tire change, Going to GS-D3 Goodyears 275/40/18 rear & 255/40/18 front

Great attitude, I wish you well on your build. Based on experience, anything over 500RWHP will require 'The Damian Rear'. This recommendation is not limited to hard launches, as you will also grenade the drivetrain on hard 1-2 and 2-3 shifts. Going with the ProCharger will definitely put you in the "10-second motor, 12-second rear" Club. Don't ask me how I know...

Thanks OneBadCad,

And I do appreciate any pointers you can give me , such as the problem with the diff on 1-2 & 2-3 shifts on anything over 500 hp . And by the way what is the damian rear ?, don't remember hearing about it

I do not have collected data, but think many, if not the majority of broken (not whining) rears have done so during a hard launch. You can adhere to the 'no dropping' rule, but given 500+RWHP, you are living on borrowed time. A hard 1-2 or 2-3 shift is enough to grenade your rear-end,,, again, don't ask. Just be nice to the rear-end, and it will nice to you. To maximize your enjoyment of the V, avoid the clutch drops, hard shifts and use street tires if you take it to the dragstrip. Damian is better known as 'Drift Caddy', a Forum member who owns a Speed Shop, and earned his nickname by drifting a V as good as any ricer car. He has engineered a rear-end that will take a lot of abuse. Many others before him said they could deliver a bullet-proof rear, but he is the only person marketing it at this time.
