Hey all, i just wanted to know if it is possible to reach 300hp without doing major work like FI, cams, heads, etc. What is the best and most legit way to reach 300hp?

maybe at the crank with full bolt ons and tune, not at the rear wheels

Eh... I don't know man...maybe with a really good tune a none ragged motor... LT headers mid pipe a good cat back good set of under drive pulleys after market plenum and a 70mm throttle body maybe even leave it stock and a good cold air intake... That's all I can think of I'm sure there's more tricks you can do I just can't think of

What are you pushing danny boy?
not too sure because i havent dynoed it out yet, but i know its not 300 rwhp but im guessing maybe 265-270 rwhp and around 300 for torque if im lucky. I still need to do this the local mustang performance shop THR is going to give me 3 passes along with 3 SCT custom tunes for my stang for $100 since i bought the tuner from them. I just need to raise the cash to do it but right now my concern is my rear spoiler its oxidizing and looks bad i need to re-paint it or find some one who is willing to trade me and who will take some cash on top of the trade.

if you would have had an LS1 camaro/trans am then you could get close to 400rwhp with just a cam swap and headers prolly!

you can get the cams themselves cheaper than that though.
