Just wanted to share the latest chapter in my car build. I did have a basic efi 302 with cam/gt40p heads/exhaust that made 255rwhp. It was fine for about 2 months then I wanted more power ha ha.
Found a novi 2000 for a reasonable price so bought it. What I thought would be a simple add on ending up not being so simple, but anyway, that's cars isn't it. Saw the seal was leaking so taught myself how to rebuild the novi. Had to clearance the valves covers, clearance the brackets slightly, clearance water pump bolt housings etc etc. Nothing major just time consuming.
Took the gt40p heads off, added 9333pt1 gaskets and arp head studs. Decided to keep the gt40p heads for now. I am using the stock novi pulley for now, but do have a smaller one for later on(in about a month ha ha)
Also added a larger radiator to help keep the thing cool.
Decided(as you do) while everything was apart, the stock ford ecu was getting old, so purchased a Haltech Elite ecu. Wired that in, added LS3 coils and a 36-1 trigger wheel. Put in a late model ford cam synch, so I have sequential fueling. Also allowed me to get rid of the maf and go to a Haltech map sensor.
I have also added a Snow Performance water/meth injection kit. The alloy reservoir next to the novi is the meth tank, and the pump is under the battery tray. It runs off a controller that looks like a gauge, which measures boost also.
I have it up and running, everything seems fine and working well. It is going in to get dyno tuned in two days. This is purely a street car. Main reason for meth was the fact I can't get a 4" cold air intake pipe to the novi inlet, as there is just no room due to how close it is mounted to the shock towers. Meth should keep it nice and cool under boost.
Stay tuned for dyno results
