She fired right up and settled right down to an idle. Amazes me how easy it is to swap in larger injectors with the iEMS3 and they start right up. Fuel trims were in the single digits +5/-5.
The engine is an all forged internals 5.7 from Sharadon Performance. She sounds soo sweet, I am sure Escape will fill in some details.
She has gone through three heat up cool down cycles tonight, so after I drop a quart of ATF in to top off the torque converter in the morning, she hits the road for a 50 mile break in run and then an oil change and back out to test out some low boost.
Here are some pics I took tonight of his install.
Underside shot showing the main components of the system.
Looking from the back forward.
Close up showing the oil pump mounting and the waste gate atmospheric dump. Similar to what the rally cars run, an atmospheric dump for the wastegate reduces overall back pressure on the exhaust side of the turbo allowing it to spool faster. But...... that's a 60 mm wastegate with a 2 1/4" diameter exhaust cut out, so it certainly will not be stealthy under boost!
Side shot looking up. everything is the same height as the bottom of the fuel tank.
Looking straight at eye level from the side, the SRT-8 side skirts will hide everything, but even on a stock Cherokee, it is not visible looking down.
The engine compartment, nice and clean.
Close up of our CNC black anodized vacuum block we use for our add on vacuum system.
The latest Bosch pencil style EV14 fuel injectors, 56 lb capacity at our fuel pressure. These things are sweet, WAY better than the Ford Cobra injectors I was using previously (I see a set coming for mine VERY soon).
Close up of the 50mm BOV and the water/meth injection nozzle.
The iEMS3 wiring harness in the engine compartment. Other than the white Molex connector, it is indistinguishable from the factory harnesses.
Looking from the drivers side.
And finally, the triple gauge pod install, Escape has a little bit of trimming to do, but looks really nice.
More to come as it hits the road.
