2003 5.4L Ford Modular BOSS 260

Hi There

Such a thread would be much better if you could complete it with real-life engine data (such as a power/torque graph and a component list), the achieved Automation figures and a little picture of the engine in question.

I've made some changes to give a better idea of the real world engines :)

Excellent! Now I can see an incentive for people to download and take a look :)
Would be good if you could put your Automation power/torque figures behind the IRL ones in a different color :D

Re: 2003 5.4L Ford Modular BOSS 260

Maybe I'm blind, do your posts say anything about the fuel system used? That seems to be vital information in building engines.

Also, I think you'd only need to do the "...AutomationValue" for power&torque as well as stuff that can't be recreated in Automation or things you're unsure about. Would increase the general readability of your interesting posts! :)
