I was just wondering if there might be a desk top dyno user that would be willing to run an engine I am looking at building. It's a 2.3L so I don't know, might think it's just a waste of time. I can get a precise list of specs and post if anyone would be willing to help. Thanks in advance.
Thanks conanski, I don't have exact numbers on the heads but found the flow numbers for late dual plug head and a reputable head porter and just averaged the numbers. I know the more exact, the more accurate the results but I think this will be pretty close. Any way, here are the numbers.
Ok I found some specs for a stock cam, with the stock exhaust on it the software says it'll make 125hp and 155tq, compare that to what Ford advertised for this motor (112hp/135tq) and you have a 10% fudge factor.
Hey conanski, did you figure the stroker kit? I was going to run the 2.5 crank and pistons too but looks like the program ran the stock bottom end. How much of a difference do you think that would make? It was my fault, I mentioned the 2.3 and just listed the stroke instead of actually spelling out the stroker. Sorry about that.
I guess you was right when you said it was possible to make 150 hp naturally aspirated with a 2.3L. That is pretty awesome of course we have to deduct the 10% fudge factor so 170lbs of torque and 160 hp, still pretty good considering it's a 2.3! Wondering if I would need a tune to run this set up? I know I would probably need bigger injectors. Wonder if going with a long rod setup would benefit the torque or is that just for high rpm drag racers and stock car?
