    A bunch of us Memphis Racing Scene folks made the 2 hour trek to see Don Polk on the 13th, and we had a fun dyno day.

    On the wideband, the car looked perfect at 13.0 - 14.0 air/fuel, so we really only had to play around with timing to get it to make the best power. Ended up at 20 degrees of base timing(a lot!), running 89 octane, and the car ran pretty flawlessly for an 18 year old domestic. =)

    Jody's '86 Mustang GT Dyno - 7.2mb

    Car Facts are basic as follows:
    '86 Mustang GT - Manual Package - Raceweight ~3000 Without Me
    Tremec TKO 5 speed tranny - Pro 5.0 Shifter and Steeda Tri-Ax handle
    Centerforce 10.5" Dual-Friction Clutch
    Stock '88 GT motor - ~80k miles
    $50 used MAC Shorty Headers
    2.5" offroad H pipe - No Cats - No Smog Pump
    2.5" 2 chamber Flowbasturds
    Moroso Cool-Air Extension w/ Oval K&N

    I'm pretty happy with the daily driver. =)

    Sorry that she's so nasty in the video, but we ran into some rain on the way to Arkansas... Here's what my "beater" usually looks like...

    Checked in at 213 HP and 279 TQ at the wheels. Not too shabby considering a stock rating of 225/300 at the crank.
