Fuel system currently is that pump I got off you in the tank with a PW Surge with 2x 460s.

I am going to upgrade that to 3x 460s in a bigger surge tank in the coming weeks just for a bit more safety at sustained boost.

 

We ended up at around 40psi.

Have always run the standard Ford one mate, that's what Colin, who built my engine has recommended, so I just popped another one of those on.

 

I got confused with the head studs too, and they are in fact the 12mm Atomic studs, I wound them up to 120ft/lb, gradually from around 80, and they didn't show any sign of being overtightened.

I think one day when I pull the engine out I might look at the 14.3 studs.

 

Still the stage 2 as well lol, I will upgrade that sometime soon as well, but its coping fine in the cooler weather.

 

I want more already, but moreso some more control over the fueling, so I am waiting to see what happens when Haltech release their plug and play unit.

You're singing the song I want to hear !!

 

factory head gasket and Atomic 12's upto 120ftlb and there's 1200HP+ I knew it could hold some power but that's amazing and exactly what I like to see

That's brilliant as I've just finished my current build for a customer with that exact head spec combo as I believe it could hold some pressure if done precisely on installation and having the head surface machined to a true flat 

 

I did add some Atomic 28mm OS washers in the mix but again as you did I went from 80 to 120 in small increments and very methodical so I'm hoping that I can keep a lid on things to but it's not going as far as yours has haha :) 

 

The Atomic M12's had no issues at all going up to 120 and Brad said there's no signs at all even at 150ftlb on the test batches 

 

love it !

I am not talking atomic. 

 

I still don't like the finish on his threads.  Wouldn't put them in my car.  And you can bank that.  I see failed bolts daily

Looks sweet mate.

I went for 295/55R15 on the rear and a 26x6 on the front.

Wheels are JEGS SSR, and MT S/S tyres
