We shall see, but the whipple will make more power me likey more power
Did you ever throw it on a Dyno to see what she puts out?
My recently calibrated assclenchometer says 667 rwhp +/- 3.14%.
Seriously - I'm due. The car is the same monster it was when I finished this upgrade. No check engine light, no hiccups, nothing other than rocket-like acceleration any time I want it.
This rear drivers bolt is ridiculous, cant reach it with your fingers, they put a vacuum line in front of if that hardly moves, I've got more time trying to get this bolt tight then it took me to take other s/c off. ugh. I give up for today, start again tomorrow.:fm:
I can chuckle, because I've been there. That bolt is a real PIA.
Step back, reevaluate, and formulate a plan. I wish you luck brother!
Yeah, I am or have to because my back is killing me from leaning over for hours. Maybe a trip to the hardware store in the morning I can find some type of thin ratchet wrench, or something, these MM turns are getting old. Wish I would have just screwed that bolt in a few more turns in the beginning.
Have someone with smaller hands help you out with it. My big ham-hands wouldn't fit in there, but a friend had smaller hands.
Also check out my install thread on [blank]. Tons of pictures that will hopefully help you out.
Tim, if there is a relevant portion of the thread, click to edit the writeup you did, copy that section, and present it here.
About how long does this install take?
If you're a good mechanic and well versed on the install - part of a day. That would mean having every possible thing you'd need (tools, permatex, etc).
What you'd be waiting for is the ProCal tuner, which comes in a couple of days once you forward the relevant PCM information to FRPP.
Beware - this isn't necessarily a mod you'd want to shop price on for the installation portion. A quality install takes time and experience. If you can spin a wrench and have read up on all possible nuances via the installation instructions, writeups such as this, etc, it isn't beyond doing it at home.
I am far from a mechanic and never really did any serious engine work prior to my FR 750 kit install. I was slow and methodical. I made some mistakes along the way that slowed me down some more, but in the end, it took me 2 long days and the end result was good.
My Procal tuner arrived the very next day after I submitted the info.
If I had my guide that I made on fordgt500.com for the install, it would have been much faster with a lot less problems.
I decided to tackle mine after getting a $1,200 install quote and seeing various online helpers like TOB's.
I didn't know much about these engines before I started, but I sure learned a lot in the process!
Just wanted to say thanks to Goose. Finished my install up on Sunday and it's a beast. His directions could easily replace and supersede the FRPP/Whipple directions. As far as the pain in the ass points he listed, they are right on. I had a buddy do the fuel pump and I know he was really frustrated. For me, the EGR is the nightmare. That took me several hours. The back bolt on the blower wasn't too bad, but then again, I had a different buddy with small hands do that one..heh. But, thanks Goose!
Has anyone with the kit ever checked to see what kind of numbers it puts out with Fords tune?
I would also like to know
I think Justin can answer that...
635 sae, DynoJet, sea level. Exactly what they state (when converted to fwhp)
(321) 206-9369 x 112
How does the torque look and numbers compared to a typical TVS setup? I am going nuts with dyno tunes and smog tests, which is pushing me to go to the FRPP kit and forget about it. :bash:
Sorry, missed this post. Glad it all worked for you!
Interesting how the blueprint titles the piece W170ax but it's marketed W175ax.
Thinking about buying/installing a Whipple, eh?
