I didn't setup the boost controller. It was Motorsport Developments that did it. Any Jap tuner will be very familiar with them.
I found the boost controller very useful. It is quite an under estimated bit of kit in the Ford world. It is a self learning device and extremely useful for traction.
When I had the engine in my car it didn't light up the wheels. It just hooked up and flew. Made for a seriously quick car.
I was speaking to Gary about your suspension etc. One thing I would strongly recommend is that you consider purchasing some of the MEF Motorsport suspension bits that get rid of the poly bushes.
With the power of that engine I would seriously think about investing in the front bits. Front tension struts, adjustable track control arms, top mounts and decent roll bar clamps.
It's a hell of alot of power through the front wheels. You have my strut brace don't you? That was a massive help too.
The engine drives beautifully. It made 309 bhp & 276 lb ft torque at just 11.9 psi. It was last on the road setup at 22psi peak and holding around 18 psi. Motorsport developments reckoned it was around 360 bhp.
It flew to say the least.
The engine will run 2 bar of boost all day. The only thing that you need to get done to be able to do this is get the lifters and valve springs uprated.
They couldn't map the car above 22 psi boost as the valves weren't shutting and opening quick enough. As explained above.
I know Motorsport Developments are a long journey for you. But I cannot stress how good at their job they are.
I wouldn't and won't use anyone else for my mapping in the future.
Well worth the travel.
Any other bits you'd like to know, then just drop me a message.
I have free calls to land lines in England if you need to talk over the phone with a long answer
