Cool I'll just leave this here...



Feel free to ask any questions regarding this kit.

This car has been complete for a little bit now but we've honestly been so busy I never put anything up.

On our Mustang dyno we made 336RWHP and 328RWTQ on just 9psi of boost! That's a gain of 90 wheel horsepower over stock and 100 more torque at just 3500 RPM!

That's around 15 more rwhp than a stock auto SS will make here and the V6 car is 400 lbs lighter!


I'll post a couple teaser pictures for now,

What we started with..










The finished kit has been fully powdercoated as well..






I'll post some more in a bit.

looks great, but i have the same concern as hunter, looks low for twins at 9 psi, should be closer to 400

Well consider the fact that we are making 90 more wheel horsepower than it did when it was stock. Not to mention 100 more torque at 3500 RPM!

Turbos are Borg Warner EFR 6258's.

Don't get caught up on the number itself, our mustang dyno is known as the heartbreaker as it never gives out the numbers people expect lol Most recently we had a corvette put down 650 wheel on our dyno and we then took it over to a local dynojet... the same car same setup etc put down 775rwhp! Granted thats a higher hp car through a manual trans but you get the idea. The dyno is merely a tool we use for tuning and to measure hp gains.

We used a mix of HP Tuners and EFI Live on this car.

This is very cool! Always good to see more companies diving into FI for the V6.

Joe most here understand well enough that your dyno may show low numbers, and that is fine. I think what might be bugging people is that you said the car only made a bit more power than a stock L99 SS. Still great of course, but IPS offers a TT LFX kit making 450+ rwhp. Sure on your dyno that might only be 380 - 400rwhp or so, but its still way more than the L99 would ever dream of.

But that could be because the IPS kit may have boost levels considerably higher than 9psi, so I really can't comment on that, and I'm not implying your kit SHOULD be making more power. Just wanted to point out the above. Have you toyed around with higher boost, or is that what you feel is a safe zone for the LFX?

Again, always great to see these kits and thanks for putting in the work!
