The process was smooth with no problems at all. These guys are the best. Explained everything even fix a couple potential problems. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone in the area. We were all surprised with the results since it was an auto and 12 bolt on a Mustang dyno which typically reads lower then most other Mustang dynos. I haven't got the car back yet had to finished removing the N20. I could only imagine this thing being beyond fun to drive. Sucks I have a couple days of driving then storing it for the winter but next season such be a blast, definitely taking it to the track.
Will post the graph this week end, video below is a pull to 6000 RPM. Didn't get a video of the last pull with the final numbers. Let me know that you guys think.
So I switch from the SLP MAF to a GM 85mm truck MAF. Mike (tuner at Striaghtline) suspected in my application it may be causing a very rich top end. Turns out last time I was on the dyno he tried to rectify it but resulted in loosing some power, 438hp & 419tq to 431 & 411. I took the car back to him with a the GM MAF and he found some additional power while improving the drivability of the car. I haven't been able to get the dyno sheets or drive the car, stuck in Michigan for another 2 weeks for finals. My brother picked up the car and said it was a blast to drive. I'll update then with new dyno sheets.
The results of the new tune with nothing else added except the MAF, corrected 445.2 RWHP and 430 RWTQ.
Added new dyno sheets. A comparison of the old vs new #'s, new graph of the new #'s and the sheet with the corrected #'s.
Car was very impressive!! All the cars parts old and new just fell into place and worked well together. Hopefully we get some more warm days so you can enjoy it before the snow! Thanks again for the kind words. Glad to help with your build!
Very impressed with the results to say the least!! I picked up the car tonight didn't get on it much but my first driving impression is awesome!! Power is increased all over the rpm band. Feels stronger every where. The tune is spot on! The heads really liked my "baby" cam. Love the end result. Striaghtline is the best!!
Nick/Mike-thanks again for everything!! Customer for life.
I'm loving your setup. I'm saving for a set of those bad *** heads right now and have been doing a lot of research on what cam or size cam to go with. You've got the best of both worlds; a cam that gives you great low end torque and power and a cam that still makes great overall rwhp and rwtq numbers. Most people sacrafice one for the other, but looks like you've found a combo that gives you both. Bye the way, your car looks amazing too.
I've been busy working my azz off so you guys can get me back in the seat!!
With 4 kidz, mortgage, 1 in college, a girlfriend and a wife on the side, this hobby of ours gets hard to accomplish!! Lol last years winter project has turned into this winters project! But my **** will be ready by February so have that trailer ready nick! Lol

Thanks guys. Got to drive the car more today and traction is def an issue. These are some badass heads!!
Yes they did, they have always done the work on my car, I have always appreciated the work they have done. Mike had actually convinced me to get the 220's and the vrx5 and I put down 456 and 400 lbs on his dyno, if you see my graph it was still climbing at 6500 ( mike was pushing me to take it to 7k but i chickened out at 6.5k true story) with a fast 90/90, pace headers and y and a magma flow cat back. I held the title for most hp with a sbe for a Lil while lol !
Enjoy the car man and REMEMBER to always warm up the car before getting on it! Ask me how I know!
The graph was overlayed with my hot cam only set up prior.
Litle- Straightline is definitely impressive and have won me over. I'm only going there for now on. I always make sure to warm the car up before any fun. I take it you found out the hard way but have an excuse for building something bigger. I see you from Burbank i'm in crestwood 10 mins away.
nasty-converter was locked.
Finally got my graphs and results sheets up. let me know what you think.
Wow congrats on the numbers! Thats def getting it done through an auto and a small cam. I'm actually thinking of getting these heads for my build, just not sure how they would do on a 408 as apposed to some L92's.
