I have been seeing alot of these flex fuel cars. What make em different from a regular Vulcan.
I have read the same thing before. I was trying to authenticate the info but couldn't find it. It might have been on my service manual CD-ROM but I don't have it here at work.Originally posted by PC_Marine@Mar 1 2004, 09:44 PM
I've been told that the FFV Vulcan produces 2-5 HP more than the regular vulcan due to having larger fuel injectors and a few other optimizations.
SourceThe cost of making cars or trucks FFVs is estimated to be as much as $300 per vehicle, which Ford does not pass on to the consumers. Upgraded components in FFVs include the fuel pump, fuel rails, fuel injectors, fuel lines and filler pipe. In addition, the package includes a unique electronic engine control module to calibrate engine response to different fuel mixtures of gasoline and ethanol.[/b]
Just adding larger injectors won't get you any gains, if you add fuel you gotta add air too. Larger injectors are useful (and necessary) if you want forced induction or certain other performance upgrades.Originally posted by stang2be@Mar 2 2004, 03:30 PM
So could you put the FFV injectors on a non ffv vulcan and get any gains?
