Re: Choice of injectors/393 stroker

Aren't you running a 302 stroked to 357?

I'm concerned about my pedal being to sensitive also, with the 70mm TB.
That is why I'm thinking about using the 65mm TB I already have, if it won't
choke the performance out of my 393 motor. Guess I could always run the
stock Mustang TB for great pedal control. LOL.

What does this mean?

We all know that Dyno2000 is probably 10-20% high any way. But, if the 30's
will idle nicely, that sounds like the safest way to go.

Anyone running the eec-tuner to recalibrate for larger injectors? Last I
remember, seems like you could put your stock mustang maf sensor into a
larger MAF (like the new 4.6L vehicles or something), and re-set the
computer for #30 injectors. Basically off setting the cost of the
eec-tuner, by not needing a special calibrated MAF. Anyone know for sure?

Think about how much fun you can have playing with it today, and what the
resale value will be tomorrow!
