I went to TCS Performance in Bishops Stortford last week and did a couple of power runs on their dyno.

Factory rating for my mustang is 225 hp and 300 ft/lb. Seeing as it's still got stock heads cam and intake, I was expecting somewhere around 220-250 hp.

It actually turned out to be 309 hp and 365 ft/lb :shock:
I'm a well chuffed with that and really surprised!

The only down side is that as it has more power than I thought, it means I'm worse at driving it than I thought. :oops:

OK, so you then have to take into account the amount of bhp you loose through the trans, prop, axle tyres

Cheapest way for you to try and get quicker now will be to put the muzzie on a diet and get some of the weight out of it

What sort of rpm should I be changing gear at, based on that graph?
I'm pretty much guessing at the moment.

The norm is about 500 over peak HP

I presume this was carried out in 3rd gear lock-up?

Looking at your power curves, I would say 5200 - 5300 region but you will need to compensate for the lag of brain to action... No punn intended.

Do you have a shift light? This is a must if you want to keep track of what works best, keep a log-book on what works and what don't.

Remember, change one thing at a time as too many variables will get you nowhere.

thats a result, should be mid 13s with some grippy radials, leave the engine well alone and play with the tires and suspension and high 12s could be in there
