the OP Bo is a very busy guy with his porting buisness and i know spends alot of time on other forums for his 4cyl turbo ford heads that he sells so i doubt he checks FTE much but i will throw him a text and let him know yall want more info haha
Cool, looking forward to results! My setup was 468, stock f3 heads that I just cleaned up, custom torquer cam, 5psi vortech and it made 305/420 rwhp/rwtq thru 35x12.5's. Your's will be much more, sweet!
We are working on re-producing this "kit" as it has been so hard to locate and it seems the interest is still very much there. It will be available with a "plug and play" piggy-back ecu, injectors, in line fuel pump, cnc ported heads, optional cam, many different stages. Don't mean to make this a sales pitch but there is a lot we are working on right now for the old 7.5L EFI and we are expecting 500-600whp on 91 octane pump gas easily. I have some of the best tuners and connections in the industry to make this happen, and it seems like the demand is there to reproduce a modernized bolt-on kit version of the vortech kit that was available back in the day.
I sponsor and work closely with this racer Matt Culpepper (also a lightning guy) sponsored by myself and Stinger Performance. This is a STREETABLE 9 second door slammer pump gas 4 banger on ported factory iron heads block and manifold. Just to give you an idea of what we are capable of.....The plug and play "PIMP" ECU we are working on will basically the same hardware as the ECU in this 9 second 4 banger pass in the vid.
Old combo with mild porting, small .400" lift cam, T5 trans, not very good tune up:
New combo**** (much better vid!!!!) ****with basically same head but larger (still tiny) /.520" 240@.050" solid roller cam, 20# boost, little bigger turbo, Doug Nash 5 speed trans, A LOT of chassis breaking/tuning/work, P.I.M.P ECU tuned by someone who all I can say was heavily involved with Ford's Roush-Yates E.F.I. Cup cars.
Looks like you found a Vortech kit. Looking forward to seeing what you have to share.
Thanks dude! I ended up getting that kit in Wyoming you sent me the link to. A customer/friend of mine picked it up for me who was in CO only a half hour a way or so. Thanks for your help locating it, and I'll be happy to help any way I can with your kit. I'm getting the mounting plate reproduced so we can have these available at minimum for these EFI 7.5 truck engines, the rest is easy stuff. FMU's are oldschool, we need a new completely programmable ecu, bigger pump and injectors. At 8:1 these things are DYING for boost.....I see no reason why we can't manage 600whp out of this stock shortblock. I made 500+whp out of a stock pinto shortblock a third the size and with a lot lesser flowing heads. I dont see why 600 at the tires would be an issue with the old V-1 and this trans. I love me some BBF!!!! Stay tuned!
