I met up with Eric L at MC Racing for a baseline dyno test, here's what I got:
This is the uncorrected version compared to Eric L's 2.5 SVT/Bassani catback:
And here are my SAE corrected numbers:
-'01 Taurus 3.0
-MSDS Headers and y-pipe
-Stock resonator removed
-eBay intake and filter
-Optimized 3.0 throttle body
I was hoping for 200 whp, but I guess this isn't bad. The torque curve is excellent, definitely an improvement over the 2.5.
Thoughts? Suggestions on squeezing out another 10 hp?
