    Hello,

    I got a GT 1994 stock, the car is automatic and it's a little boring, I found this used kit for sale in my local site, it's a Vortech SC, the price is $2200.00 :

    My question is what I must have to change in my car to install it; what size of injectors ? need new exhaust ?

    In fact I dint research a high power Mustang, just a little boost.

    Thank's

    Francis

    Dont use the FMU..

    just get 42# injectors.

    I also dont like the "piggyback" fuel pumps. so just put in a Walbro 255LPH hi pressure fuel pump.

    Then you'll need a X-cal 2 for a tune. Thats not a bad price for the kit though.

    Thank's for your advice,

    So I just need to replace injectors and the gas pump, can I also keep the original exhaust system ?

    woops.. my mistake, i just noticed it said 94 gt. A chip w/ a dyno tune is still something i would suggest. you can still use the original exhaust.

    Hello,

    So I call the seller and he said to me that I can use stock injectors and I will not have any problems, also he recommend the using of the FMU unit.

    He offer me to buy this part in extra for $250.00:

    I like this because it's more sleeper, nobody saw theses gages from the outside.

    Is it true that the power whit a vortech arrived around 2800-3000 rpm ?

    Thank's

    i never noticed any lag with my s trim instant boost when at wide open throttle ..... as for the stock injectors their to small i think even running low boost...dynoed my stang at 8 psi and at high rpm's was starting to lean out thats with the t rex fuel pump and 24# injectors so if i were you install that t rex you can get 24 # injectors cheap on ebay and then buy a walboro 255 high pressure intank fuel pump ..... you should be safe with that thats what i have an im running rich and also get a kirban fuel regulator so you can fine tune you fuel pressure
