Yes they can be expensive but somehow I'm always able to come up on low priced injectors for my vehicles...my previous I was able to get some 60s for my cobalt for $100...sometimes I just get lucky

I understand the concern on runnin to lean and detonating..but like I said if it looks like I need more injector ill get some later...I don't even have the supercharger yet...I gotta save up at least $2k to get the kit...


Now as of 2 days I ordered a ranger front valance/air dam to improve on the aero and yesterday I also bought a timing light which I also used to adjust my timing...I set my timing at 14* BTDC...so far power feels great. Since in Eco modding most of the time we tend to stay in low rpm I figured it would be a good idea to have a bit more low end power.

Beings I can't post links or images yet just google Brazeau racing mustang air dam and it will take you to a how to I followed.

p.s- I have a 84 GT and although it didnt fit 100% it was close enough and after some fine tuned trimming it looks decent
i went ahead and ordered one for 30 bucks from ebay...i should have it here soon...thanks for letting me know about this option

well after doing some calculations at 85% duty cycle with the 24s...

max safe hp = [ (injector size) x (total # of injectors) x (max duty cycle) ]/BSFC
forced induced numbers....
24lb/hr x 8 injectors x 0.85/ 0.55 = 296.7 HP
or 251 HP @ 0.65 BSFC

it is do able but at higher demand theres not enough...so yea looks like I will be needing a bigger injector...at minimum a 30 @ 0.65.. 314 hp @ 85% Duty Cycle ...but that will be in the future...thanks for the heads up...

but as of right now...my the 24s are perfect for the current setup...

I think they way they get by is by raising the fuel pressure...the FMU supplied with the kit raises the fuel pressure from 40psi to im going to guess 60 and that is how the 24s are able to keep up with the extra fuel demand...so by using those same 24s and raising the pressure to 60 the new flow rate of the same 24 injector is now 29.59 lb/hr at 60psi

I had great luck with the crane Hi 6 s ignition, throws multiple sparks at lower revs and smooths out the engine nicely, super easy install also ,summit racing has them , so far used them on 4 vehicles unfortunately not the one I'm driving now, saving up and looking for used, also if you get into timing and are stock now you can easily advance 2 to 4 degrees from stock and pick up power , not sure about mileage but probably so , another must is the redline synthetic in the rear differential , call summit on that best price, and their tech guys are good also , If you can get a hold of some 4 cyl rims might save a mpg or two on that over the bigger ones, should be cheap . good luck

Modding has been halted for a while I have a baby girl on the way my wife is 8 months prego next week... Been buying lots of stuff for the baby...

The mpguino shows I've been able to get between 30-35mpg on the frwy... I do average about 25-27 on my 70 mile trips to Los Angeles

I recently moved out of l.a. And I now stay in Moreno Valley... My work is less than 2 miles away so I'm really not driving much...

Good time to relax a bit , once the little one comes it all changes, for the better I might add, lots of fun. and good luck from all of us. we're saving gas for her first ride. remember no burnouts till she's one or so , their necks are very weak until around 6 months anyway,
