 Tune Time Performance’s new Lakewood, New Jersey, location was a 45-minute pleasure ride to dyno test the new cam. We’ve known all along since the baseline the torque converter hasn’t been conducive to chassis dyno testing, but it has supported us with great e.t.’s at the track. When the Dart 509 showed 669 hp on the engine dyno and only 406 rwhp on our baseline Mustang chassis dyno test, we knew there was power going through the converter and not showing at the wheels. It was now more evident testing the cam where it showed peak power and torque moving way down the rpm scale showing peak torque increasing by 217 lb-ft at 3,700 rpm, and 42 rwhp at 4,100 rpm. Previously peak torque and horsepower was at 5,500 and 6,000 rpm, respectively. This being the case, we could only guesstimate the horsepower gains by using the average power (54 hp) gained through the dyno pull. Like old times, we’ll use the e.t. and mph improvements to estimate our gains in power.
