85 Mercury Capri New Engine First Time Out (Stumble) 3rd run
First time out for new engine. Had a very bad stumble off the line. Found
out later that my MSD 7AL2 was pulling 10 degrees of timing out between
3,000 and 4,000 RPM's. So I was leaving the line with only 24 degrees of
timing!! No wonder the car was falling flat on it's face!! Despite dismal
60 foot times in the 1.80's, the car was still running 7.0's in the 1/8
mile at 97 MPH. That was short shifting at only 6,000 RPM's. My goal of
6.60's in the 1/8 with this new engine should be easily realized after it
gets sorted out
My Old Car Stopped By For A Visit
1986 Mercury Capri 5.0 (which of course is exactly the same as a Ford Mustang 5.0 except for the fat
fenders). I used to have all the modifications listed on a Stangnet page,
but they apparently revised the site and it ain't there no mo.
If I remember the G-Tech times correctly went 0-60 in 5.87 and the 1/4 in
14.27 which was not bad considering a stock torque converter in the shift
kit equipped AOD.
I don't know what is going on with it now since some parts have been
Chip Foose needs to overhaul this sucker.
