Great power from what you have. Here's the reason why I asked. I have seen some of 5 Stars dyno charts for the Super Duty's where they have a cold air intake and a tune. They seem to make about 260 hp and 320 ft-lbs to the tires. Does your exhaust make that much difference and/or are the Torqshift transmissions that much of a power suck? That's a difference of 80 hp and 123 ft-lbs of torque. Any insight from anybody would be appreciated.

Anything that allows the engine/rotating-parts to spin up faster makes more "HP" on a dyno. Smaller/lighter wheels, driveshaft, rear diff, transmission rotating parts, everything adds up.

Add to that that I'm sure 5-star upped the ignition timing because of the lighter vehicle and all those rotating parts, and you get quite a bump - and all that rotational mass reduction does add up to more acceleration.

Those dyno charts you saw, are they 2-valve or 3-valve?

The dyno charts I referred to are the 3V dyno charts on 5 Stars websites. Granted they are the 87 octane tunes, but I have seen info on the 91 octane tunes before and they seem to be 10-15 ish horse better than the 87. And you'll probably get 30 ish horse from headers and better exhaust, but we are still talking about a difference of at least 40 horse and 60-70 ft-lbs of torque. Maybe the Torqshift is that inefficient. It would be interesting to see a dyno chart from one of those rare 3V V10 manual transmission beasts to see.
About the only other car build I have seen is A 1978 Mustang II Worthy of Our Affection - Hot Rod Network where it put 396 hp and 475 lb-ft to the tires, but it had a custom intake, bigger throttle body, bigger injectors, reground camshafts, long tube headers and a tune. Of course I know it may not be apples to apples, because it is a different dyno, different day, etc...Just not a lot of good data on the 3V V10s out there. I have always been curious to see if anybody has CNC ported a set of heads and see what kind of power increases you would get.

I don't have any of that information yet but it is a blast to drive.
I have been working all the little bugs out of the car. A/C is finally working like it is supposed too.

ill add some , LOL , less drive train loss on this than a super duty for sure, so it put more to tire, timing tables did have a little more to it than a truck would but only by 2-3 , it stopped making power after that base number we use on trucks.
i had to laugh at the "wheres the MAF comments" those were mine as well when i first seen the car. LOL

Mustangrehab is a very talented guy as you can see and this is truly one of the best unique V10s i have done in 15 years , i am glad he saw his project through and chose us to help him finish it.
