Hustle And Flow
Below: Test 1 was simply a baseline with a seasoned stock Three-Valve 4.6L. Test 2 was the stock engine with the addition of the Ford Racing Three-Valve intake manifold. For Test 3, we added a set of Ford Racing's Hot Rod camshafts with the FRPP intake. In Test 4 we installed FRPP's Stage 1 CNC-ported cylinder heads with FRPP intake manifold. We also ran this test with the stock cams.

Test 5 used the same FRPP cylinder heads, but we reinstalled the stock intake manifold and Hot Rod cams. For Test 6 we brought the Hot Rod cams back to see how the FRPP intake, Stage 1 heads, and Hot Rod cams would work together. In Test 7, the Stage 1 heads were removed to make room for the FRPP Stage 3 CNC-ported cylinder heads. The Hot Rod camshafts handle the valve actuation and the stock manifold handled the induction. Test 8 was our all-out test to see how much we could make with Ford Racing's newest Three-Valve components (Three-Valve intake manifold, Stage 3 CNC-ported cylinder heads, and Hot Rod camshafts).
