MoTeC on a Mustang

by Kyle Tomita on Thu, Mar 31st, 2011 | Client Vehicles, John Reed Racing, On The Dyno, Tuning

A client of ours brought in his 2007 Ford Mustang with a supercharger.  It has a Vortech Supercharger, Ford Racing intake manifold, and Ford Racing Large Throttlebody.  The Mustang's engine management solution was not adequate enough for this application.  The limitations were not allowing for the amount of control necessary to get the most out of the car in both performance and drivability aspects.

We suggested that the client try an alternative form of engine management solution.  Because of PSI's close association with John Reed Racing, a MoTeC solution was at the top of the list on possible solutions.  The client went for it and ordered a MoTeC M800.

A MoTeC M800 was never used for this application before.  Like many of our other projects, we try to push the limits and do things others have not.  John Reed worked closely with MoTeC to figure out how to control every aspect of the engine.

While John was working on the tuning side of this project, Alex Laventure began to design some mounting solutions for the MoTeC M800 and various sensors that needed to be installed.  The M800 allows the use of several other sensors to closely monitor the engine.
