Default 98 GT dyno numbers

I have a full pi swap, 75mm tb/plenum, underdrive pullies, catted h pipe and flowmaster catback. I ended up with 230 rwhp and 290 rwtq. Im happy with the torque especially since i got all of it by 3500 rpms but am dissapointed by the hp. The car seems to give out at 4500.

auto or manual? regardless those numbers are low. But it doesnt matter. What matters is what it runs at the drag strip.

If it does feel like its crapping out could be a few things:
1-shitty tune
2- cam timing is off

its manual. the car feels fine driving its just on the dyno graph you can see that its really not making much power after 4500.

Well from what I've heard on the 96-98 GT's if you do a full pi swap you usually see nice gains and better numbers then the 99-04's..numbers seem low specially from the mods you have listed.

do u think i could be running out of fuel at high rpms? I no i dont need bigger injectors but maybe a stronger pump? Im not expecting it to give me much power but it sounds like it might help.

did you get your a/f ratio logged? if so that would really tell you if fuel is a problem or not.

If its not that only things i could think of are cam timing is off or shitty tune. Having the cam timing off ca cost you up to 20hp or more if its really bad. i mean there are alot of small things can make it happen.

if the cam timing was off would i notice it while driving, because the car seems to run fine to me but i might just be missing somthing.

no... you wouldn't if they were retarded several degrees but otherwise in sync. I'll betcha your cams aren't timed correctly. You should be making like 20+ more hp minimum.

Yeah i would still say the cam timing would have to be off for such low numbers.

I'd like to see the graph, too. Stock PI engines typically peak the torque at 4000 RPM and power at 5000 RPM.

Could result in bent valves.

Thats one of the worst a/f ratios i have ever seen. It should run right under 13:1 for best n/a power.

big bad lean until 4K rpm. That's a proper maf transfer function away from a much better performance. I'd be surprised if it's not pinging at 3500rpm.

I agree....could even run closer to 12:5 and bump up the timing

there's exactly 1 way to "properly" tune air fuel ratios. That's the MAF transfer function. You tinker with that with a custom tune.

Thats what your a/f should look like. Yours is terrible and thats why you're down on power. Find a new tuner.

so you guys dont think its the cam timing anymore? and does anyone know of any good tuners in NJ? I know JDM engineering is supposed to be good but they only tune 01 and up mustangs.

I know this is an old post, but was that a/f AFTER a tune or was that just as you rolled it into the dyno?
