dyno results

I went to Misener's dyno days today and was surprised at the numbers the
Lightning put down 366.68 rwhp 402.18 rwtq .The only mod I've done is a cai, so
for a pretty much stock truck I was pretty happy and now I've got a baseline
for further mods

The temp in the shop was only 72* with 40% rh the print out I have doesn't
show the A/F ratio. I was too busy listening to the blower scream to watch
the computer screen. It was the first time I got to listen from the outside
of the truck. Man that blower screams at 5 grand.

Can't wait to put on the 4# pulley I bought from you.
Picked up some NGK TR6's as well, but I think I better pull the blower
and clean my intercooler before I do anything.

Ya definatelty pull that sucker off, if you need a hand let me know,the last 2 torque yield bolts on the blower are a nightmare as they are right under the firewall. As long as you're careful, the gaskets and bolts can be re-used. I wouldn't mind making a trip out there. I am assuming you're storing it for the winter? If so, best time to pull it.

The temps for your pulls were good, hot air KILLS our trucks, I don't even like driving mine when it's hot oustide cuz it's so doggish that it's disappointing.

Who's going to tune the truck? Find a handheld?

It's all about the boost!

I talked with Jay @ Miseners about tuning the truck and I think I will let him do it. With
the 4# I'm not too scared. He said he can put a real safe tune on it and he's an SCT
dealer,his shop is only 10 minutes away from me. He's a Ford guy and has done 2 other
built Lightnings. Jay seems to have a good reputation in the area, and after seeing some of the cars he built at the dyno day I think I can trust him. Jay ball parked the price for the tune @ $700 which included the SCT x3 which I thought was cheap

P.s. MJG I would welcome any help you're willing to give. If you need to do any work on
Your truck as well ,bring it on down I have a large shop with a hoist.

I may just have to take you up on that offer, truck's too darn low to do anything anymore.

$700.00 for the handheld and dyno tune? That's a fair price, I would go for it.
I may even enquire about his shop rates to remove and install a built shortblock for me.

I think you should grab a built block at the same time to knock down shipping costs lol

It's all about the boost!

Just pm me if you need the shop and I think you'd be happy with Jay's work he told
me the last Lightning he did it was easy to lift the cab off to install the motor

Great, always good to know.
Now once you get that blower cleaned and the pulley & tune, all that's left to do is lower that 4x4 some!

It's all about the boost!
