QUARTERHORSE

Unread postby PRPOLICEMAN » Wed Dec 12, 2018 10:43 pm

I just bought a Quarterhorse for my TBird TC and by reading here and else where I might have gone over my head. I am a mechanic and I used to tune my old 5.0 Mustang with a Haltech F9 but i do not get the terminology used for this quarterhorse at all. I want to change to Speed Density or MAF but i'm not sure I understand how this 1/4horse works. I am lost.... :(

The learning curve is steep but is still manageable. Let's start off with some information:
- car year
- equipped ECM
