    Default SVT full 3.0 dyno

    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:

    Mods:
    -'01 Taurus 3.0
    -MSDS Headers and y-pipe
    -Stock resonator removed
    -eBay intake and filter
    -Optimized 3.0 throttle body
    -warmonger tune


    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?

    what manifolds are you using? i'm guessing 3l cams by the hp curve. so are you using 3L manifolds too
    also,what are you doing for a catback? stock catback is holding you back some,thats for sure. tq curve doesnt look that good,falls off pretty hard

    He has a full 3L swap (cams/intake manifolds, that's why he's selling the SVT stuff in the classifieds.

    I agree with the catback suggestion for a few extra ponies. Not bad numbers for a straight swap.

    it is amazing to see the 2.5 SVT make more torque above 6500 rpms that explains why the 3 liter cams fall off so hard. That is not to bad for a 3 liter swap I am so darn anxiuos to see how we can squezze more power out of the 3 liters with certain combinations.

    Hey can you do a datalog for me so i can compare the airflow and loads against my 3 liter just curious to see since I didn't get a full datalog on the 3 liter motor. Joey

    The torque curve isn't too bad, considering 99.999% of my driving is under 5000 rpm. I was hoping to see 200hp, but the numbers I have now are definitely an improvement over stock.

    well maybe you can wait till joey has his dyno data,perhaps a manifold change will be in order. i was planning on straight 3l swap too,but to be honest,i'm not that impressed w/the way the tq comes on and leaves. i've had really tq'y cars before(mazda f2t 2.2L)

    There's no way I'm going to the 2.5 intakes. $300 for the LIM adaptor plus an SVT UIM worth $235 (what I just got for it) is NOT worth a few extra hp up top...that's MORE than I paid for the whole engine!

    I have heard that the '04+ 3.0 manifolds could be helpful, though.

    Coincidentally enough, there was a 93-94 Turbo'd Probe GT on the dyno when I got there. I believe he was putting out about 210hp.

    Exactly what did you want as far as the datalog. Do I just hook up the X3, start data logging, and drive around for a while, or should I make a couple specific runs?

    I was also running a KKM during in addition to the Bassani and probably less than 13k miles.

    Any idea how many miles were on the Taurus motor when you swapped it?

    We should have had him print the Vortech and Venom pulls that were on the computer and maybe one from Buckshot's 3L SC! Just to see wheere you could be someday!
