What did you come up with on the dyno? This is a pretty stock engine other than for the MS?

Motor is stock except M30 injectors and shorty headers, and has +190k miles. I did not dyno before MS, but while tuning on a Mustang dyno, got 161 hp @ 5500; 158 ft-lb@4500 at the rear wheels. New, stock motor spec shows 168hp at the crank. Honestly, I don't believe my dyno numbers.

Car will now out pull similar cars on long straights (that I couldn't pull before), so I think it's got more power than before. Since I didn't dyno before/after, can't quantify improvement.

Sweet, thanks! Might be even better when you get your spark curve tuned in. . . 8)
