1990 Fox, stock w/ 2.1L Kenne Bell
I want to start this thread so I can ask questions as I go along with my KB install. My car is a 1990 LX 5.0, 5 speed, and the motor is completely stock with just some 1 5/8" BBK long tubes and typical exhaust. My suspension is completely done with MM coil overs, Cobra IRS, etc.
I have a 2.1L Kenne Bell Flowzilla (90mm inlet) which has the bypass already on it from KB. This is going on a stock E7 headed 5.0, stock cam, with an Explorer lower intake, 90mm Accufab TB (still need to buy), 42# injectors (still need to buy), 255 fuel pump (gss340), and Stinger Pimp speed density MicroSquirt tuning.
This is NOT a max effort build. This is strictly a fun street car. I am not getting different heads or anything so lets not go there.
My questions to start this off is....
Where is the best place to install my ACT sensor? Drill and tap the #5 runner in the lower intake like stock?
Will 1.7 roller rockers help me out any? Maybe the extra lift will help the KB breath a little easier on the exhaust side of things?
I am looking to run 8-10lbs of boost, maybe a tad more if my stock head gaskets and bolts can take it. I don't mind removing the heads to install ARP head studs and 9333 gaskets.
Thanks in advance for any helpful information. I am new to boost but not 5.0's
