First step.

Go to Adobe.com > Products > Photoshop CS5.5 > Trial > Select Operating system.

Then go to Google.com > Images > Dyno Sheet. New search > Orthographic grid paper.

Back to photoshop! > Open Image > [Dyno sheet] > Import image as new layer > [Orthographic grid].

Resize the grid to completely cover the previous dyno tune.

Select > Pen tool > draw a HP and TQ curve. Set this one lower. It will be your base tune or first dyno run.

Change the texture of your pen to a different color now. Or a dotted line. Just change it up. Now draw a different set of curves. This will be your Tuned result.

Now rasterize the lines so that they dont look too perfect.

Select > Text box > On the bottom of the sheet (or wherever it is located on yours) and overlay your new numbers over the previous ones as well as changing the car info and general details.

Go to allfordmustangs.com and svtperformance.com and post your new numbers along with your imaginary list of mods!

Put the results in your signature.

The first thing you'll need to do is get the suspension mode selection switch from an old VR4 so that you can switch between sport, race, and street.

Next, check with Crazy Hal's engines...

Probably not a bad idea. Most of us here are moderately functional retards who barely are capable of pumping their own gas.

Here, I'll give a brief shot at answering your questions with some degree of accuracy.

1) Yes, 400rwhp is quite possible with supercharging, and it is about the max amount you want to shoot for on a stock shortblock. Above and beyond that number, forged internals become a necessity. You will need..... A supercharger, intercooler setup is good also, fuel system upgrades like larger injectors and higher capacity fuel pump. That's the short list, as there will likely be some little stuff I'm not thinking of at this moment. Figure 8-10 lbs of boost, intercooled and with a good tune will get you real close if not slightly over that 400rw mark.

2) Figuring a 15% parasitic drivetrain loss which is common for these cars, approx. 425 rwhp would equate to 500 at the flywheel.

3) Somebody's used crap is going to be the least expensive route. There is no such thing as "cheap".



And you guys are a bunch of dicks. This guy's new, cut him a little slack.

You idiot, you can't use the suspension switch from a VR4. It's a German car, Mustangs are American. It simply won't work. You have to use one from a Thunderbird SuperCoupe. Thought by now this was common knowledge.

Who's the idiot? The VR4 is freaking Japanese!

On top of that he just needs the switch.

My bad, was thinking of a Passat or some crap. Lemme see now, you would be referring to a Mitsu 3000GT if memory serves me well?

Either way, I still think there are cultural differences and possible language barriers that need to be taken into consideration, and wouldn't just recklessly go around installing switches from one car to another especially when there could be a possible nationality based conflict. It's a real slippery slope, and I'm not saying it couldn't or shouldn't be done, but just know that it could be slippery and there could be unintended consequences. That's why I suggested using the T-Bird switch, 'cause you know it'll keep the funk down to a minimum.

I was thinking Galant VR4 (they're actually awesome, worked on and driven two of them).

Thing is, the switch is labeled in English, so I think it should be okay.

He said "with" a supercharger.
