It might be pretty easy to convert the Up Pipe and then you could do twin 38MM MVS, and go with a twin scroll turbine housing. That might be a pretty cool project. Just a thought though.

I knew you would not use the AVCS on the AEM V1, so I assume it works well for your application.

I see that you got the 44mm on there. Did it alleviate the creep?

What are you shooting for with this project? Low 10s...maybe 9s'? That would be pretty nice. Either way it looks like it is fun to drive.

Once you get it sorted out, why don't you and Junior bring the car to Akuma. We can do a few dyno pulls to compare the numbers...Mustang V DJ. Obviously, there will be no charge. I could then figure out what correction factor I should set the dyno at to get it reading more in line with the rest of the community. Just a thought.


I think the creep was alleviated since we put the new gate on the car. Gonna put the car back on the dyno to retune for pump again then put some e85 on turn it up a bit more.

If this car doesn't go 9's ill burn it, lol.

Still have the treadstone core. I doubt this car will max it out.

We can figure something out. I'll gladly bring the car by and do a pull or two. But track numbers first !
