MoTeC + Mustang

by Kyle Tomita on Tue, May 3rd, 2011 | Client Vehicles, John Reed Racing, On The Dyno

Recently a client came in with his 2006 Ford Mustang GT.  It already had a supercharger, Ford Racing throttle body, and the other supporting mods.

The previous engine management system did not provide the control and ultimately the drivability we wanted.  A new solution was devised, which included a MoTeC M800.  The M800 would provide the control of the engine that was required to further improve drivability and performance.

The M800 standalone ECU offers the control that John requires to properly tune this Mustang.  A set of Bosch sensors were added to monitor the engine.  This engine features variable cam timing, which the other tuning solution was unable to control.

After the tune, this setup produces 530whp and 460 ft-lbs of torque.

After this Mustang, John is working on a MoTeC solution for a supercharged G37s. Check back for more on this MoTeC controlled G37s.
