Thread: Base Tune 5.0L With Vortech

  1. #1

    Default Base Tune 5.0L With Vortech

    Does anyone have a base tune for a '92 Mustang 5.0L with a Vortech? I've been building mine, but would really like to compare it to one that someone has used, just so I can make sure I'm not overlooking anything.

    Few more details:
    '92 Mustang 5.0L
    Holley HP with NTK wideband
    Holley 7" Digital Dash
    Vortech V2-Si supercharger
    Around 10 pounds of boost
    Anderson Power Bypass with Mondo Bypass valve
    GT40 heads
    B-303 cam (LINK)
    Explorer upper/lower intake
    65 mm throttle body
    Holley 66 lb/hr injectors
    Tremec 3550 5-speed
    3.73:1 gears
    Full exhaust
    Using Holley for WOT cutout for A/C
    Corvette C6 fan
    Using a PWM signal to control a Corvette C6 fan controller.
    Thanks in advance!

    Fan is not in yet. Going to work on it tomorrow. Working on a couple of different ways of doing it. I'll let you know.

    I spoke with Moore Racecraft. They charge $150 for a base tune. Is it worth the $150 to have them do the base tune? They state:
    "Our base tunes include: 5 Standard ICF Configuration. Proper Axis Defined, Ignition Setup, Fuel Injector Data & more."
    I know they are good with tunes, just curious if it's worth having someone else do the base tune or not.

    Basically, if you have to ask, it's probably a good idea. What I mean is, if you're not confident with your Global Folder/File, I'd do it (especially with a forced induction application).

    So I take your advice and pay to have a base tune written. Here's a screenshot of the Base Timing Table for my combo, supercharged (approximately 10 psi) running 93 octane. Anything stick out?

    Is that the purchased tune from a dealer, or a Holley base calibration? Does it idle at 900 RPM? You probably don't need the zero MAP kPa row & 7000 RPM column. It's a loss of valuable Base Fuel/Timing Table resolution (LINK & LINK).

    That's a purchased tune unfortunately. The big one is way too much timing during boost conditions.
