FORDSVTBIRD MIR Sept 1 2008
First pass after being tuned. Have some minor issues to work out, but
overall it was a success at the track. I'll be pulling the trans for to
get a higher stall TC very soon! R/T: .122 60': 1.992
Bad Ass FORDSVTBIRD
Ok, finally she's running. The FORDSVTBIRD is alive!
See attachment..I think the sound speaks for itself. Not sure how much
it'll be, but it sure sounds like a lot! I still have to get a Dyno tune and Exhaust.
Key points: No Exhaust, just the
Kooks headers 1 7/8 into 3in. collectors.
RPM is around 1600-1800 during the sound clip.
94 thunderbird supercoupe
1994 Thunderbird SC 5.0 Cobra project car.
We picked up this car last year and it had a blown 3.8 supercharged 6
cylinder engine. We decided a nice 5.0 should take up residence in between
the shock towers and built a 5.0 with fresh GT 40 iron heads, e303 camshaft
installed 2 degree's advanced with a frpp multi index timing chain. Up top
we used a 95 Cobra intake and a 65mm throttle body to handle the induction
chores. Engine managment is controlled by a WH4O pcm from a 95 Mustang GT. The engine harness is a
93 mn 12 and the body harness is 94 sc. We had to repin the engine harness
to handle the 4R70W electronic transmission. To use this 2000 4r70w tranny
we changed over the transmission harness and solenoids to the early style
to work with the Mustang
pcm. The torque converter is a 9.5" 3000 rpm stall lock up converter from
ATS and the trans also has the infamous J-MOD done to the seperator plate
for lightning fast shifts and added transmission life. The rear carrier has
been rebuilt with 3.73 gears and traction lock. Watch for this car at shows
and at Castrol Raceway near Edmonton AB.
2001 Ford Crown Victoria police interceptor Jmod 0-70
2001 CVPI After doing Jmod to the 4R70W transmission. im submiting this
video of what the results and gains were from it im not 100% sure but it
looks to me like i began accelerating at 0:51 and reached 70mph at 1:01 so
0-70 in 10 seconds maybe. not Super fast but works for me.
