essex v6 tuning

Post by garrettvadival » Fri 23 Oct 2015, 17:06

Hi guys I need some help tuning my cortina v6 with the essex v6.I have gasflowed,ported and put a 390 holley but looking to get more power.I heard stories of guys getting up to 300hp from this motor and I trying to get up there.

I have been told to put an electronic fuel pump and regulator but I dont know how to go about doing so.

Please let me know if you have any information.

Warlbo is good. I the on the regulator there is a supply pipe for the fuel,output pipe to the carb and a return line to the tank
Magic happens.

Might help a little. I noticed the Holley 500 two-barrel works best.
