Red light Ticket

So the other day, I had to work late & got hassled by the cops on the way home (around 12:30 at night).  They were just looking for DUI suspects & my car makes a good target for them.  But instead of letting me go when they learned that I wasn't drunk, they gave me a ticket for their fabricated reason for pulling me over  "Running a red light"
Well, that just wasn't right, so I fought it in court.  
Here is the Recorded Transcript of the hearing. It's in a MP3 Format so feel free to download the file.  (Spoiler- I won!)

My new Ford Racing engine!

M-6009-A463SC Aluminator

Fox Lake CNC Ported Heads

Stage 2 Ported & Polished Stock 3v Heads

Kenne Bell 2.4 Supercharger

I just had to get the polished one!

Sorry for the small size, the point is the advertised HP rating of 523 here is CRANK HP.

3.73 Rear Gears

I thought they were going to make a bigger difference than they did.

Zero Degree Plugs

Needed for the Supercharger

Pro 5.0 Shifter

A lot stronger than Stock & has absolute stops, so you can slam it hard without damaging anything.

Too Loud, I have switched to a Catted Long tube header setup.

Dyno Charts

Mustang Dyno - June 26th 2006 - SVC Motorsports - Scottsdale, AZ
These are with the stock 4" 8psi 2.4L Kenne Bell w/ no other mods.

Expected Dyno

My first Dyno Ever!

Are these always dissappointing?

Notes:
These are from the first day of the blower install.  This shop didn't have the experience to recognize that the torque curve didn't look right I guess.  354hp/338tq

Pretty far from KB's claims! but I bought into the excuses.

Dyno Dynamics - July 17th 2008 - Dyno-Comp - Scottsdale, AZ
These are with the stock 4" 8psi 2.4L Kenne Bell & 3.73 Gears

Horsepower vs Torque

Notes:
Obviously a hot day,  but I really didn't buy into all the "Correction Factor" numbers they were throwing at me. This sure looks like 367hp/331Tq to me!

This reinforces orig. Dyno #'s

DynoJet - August 4th 2009 - PSR - Phoenix, AZ
These are with the 3.5" 11.5psi 2.4L Kenne Bell & 3.73 Gears

 

Notes:
This is what I was running at when she threw 2 rods out of the side of the stock block

AMP Performance - April 17th 2009 - Dyno-Comp - Phoenix, AZ
These are with the 3.5" 11.5psi 2.4L Kenne Bell & 3.73 Gears

First run on new engine

Current dyno chart as of June 9th, 2010

Notes:
1st one is out of tune. 2nd one is with LongTubes & 3 3/8" Pulley & Tuned.

Picked up 56hp and 64# of torque.

If my calculations are correct, that's 583 hp & 565 #Tqe.
...as a car mfg would market it.

 

Just an Apples to Apples comparison Derived from the KB Chart and My Dyno's
The Data in Red is my current setup. This is really for my reference & was only true before the headers, as I am at 495 with the 3 3/8ths".
