fuel injection

  1. News
    Direct injection. Just about every car has it now, and those that don't probably will in the next few years. It can add power, reduce emissions, and is a big part of why just about everybody is offering tiny turbo engines that make big horsepower. But how does it work? And why does my dealer...

    Posted a few questions in here, but need some more help. I am putting a 1990 mustang 5.0 in my car with efi. I already have a t5 that I am using in it with my 200ci l6. I already have 8" rear, v8 suspension, 5 lug, v8 steering linkage, and everything. This is not to be told I need those parts...

    1989 5.0 w/t5 So I want to move into EFI tuning and a turbo setup after I get the hang of it. I contacted DIYAutoTune in regards to their packages and asked if this one would suffice (5.0 Mustang DIYer Kit Package #1 DIYAutoTune.com) for my turbo needs (MAP sensor, fuel tables, spark...etc) I...

    I feel a little in over my head. I inherited my mom's 1964 mustang which I have done some work on over the years but I am now looking in to really taking on fixing it up. I am wondering if the fuel injection is working correctly as when I stop a a red light it will stall however if I put it in...

    Okay, I first want to say thanks. I've been lurking and making some decisions about a path that I'd like to go, and would appreciate any feedback. I recently bought a stock C-code 289 2BBL 67 coupe. The engine is all stock, except the added vintage air A/C. It runs fairly well, but I'm a...
  9. 4.6L Tech
    I've recently bought a 2001 Ford Mustang, but I haven't been able to get it working properly the entire time I've had it. Before, it would run for about twenty minutes tops, probably even less, before it would overheat and completely die. It wouldn't start again until it cooled down. We replaced...

    So, The reverse has been covered a million times but, im not a mechanic so i wanted to get some clarity on what would be involved and what the best route might be. I picked up an 88 gt donor car with a good running motor so i should have all the parts i need but, what should be replaced with...

    I just installed a 1987 5.0 HO into my 1966 coupe. Upon start up I identified the #5 cylinder was not firing. It ran great prior to the transplant. Here is what I've done to no avail: Verified spark at plug (pulled plug and wire - all new BTW, verified gap) Checked compression (150# right...

    Could an improper fuel injector order cause an engine to act like a rev limiter? I have an old 289 that is running a 302 H.O. firing and injector order. I runs but, around 3500 RPM it acts like thats it like that is red line. I thought maybe if I repinned the PCM that it would run smoother and...

    What size injectors should i go to? Can i leave the stock 19 in it or do i need to go to 24lb? E303 cam, gt 40 heads, explorer intake, stock fuel rails. And i have to get the matching Mass air meter for 24lb also correct?

    Hey guys, i just did an engine swap in my 91 gt. I took the motor from an 89, but the motor itself is an 86. It was carbureted, and im putting my fuel injection on it. It came with a summit racing ignition box and distributor. The problem im running into is that my distributor has a little...
  16. V6 Talk
    So I know that most people that build V6 race cars go with the New Edge V6 (99-03). I was wonder what the differences are between the 1994-98 and the 99-03 v6's. I know the Fuel Injection is different but is that it?
  17. 5.0L Tech

  18. 5.0L Talk
