Ok so I have a 2003 gt that I use for my daily, I bought a 91 fox with a stock engine... I drove it a week and pulled the motor. I was looking for some opinions from some experienced 5.0 owners as how to get the most power with a budget build. I am in no hurry to get it done.. but would like to have it back together by spring. I would really appreciate any of your stories as to what set ups you have experienced... Thanks again


As far as boost or all motor goes im open to either or...

i'll be following this thread closely as well since i'm working on pretty much the same thing.

93hatch, might be a dumb question but what is a "set of P's" and a "wet kit". the only thing i can think of for "P's" is pistons and wet kit is nitrous?

fast eddie, the thread i started is called "project newbie" and you might look through there as well. these guys have given me some great advice so far. i just started my project on saturday so i still have a TON of questions coming :)

na dude P's is GT40P's (explorer headds) and wet kit is a wet nitrous kit, one that sprays both fuel and nitrous into the intake

What 93hatch said would definately wake your 5.0L up. You might want to look into a dry kit though, as Ive heard quite a few stories about wet nitrous kits leading to nitrous backfires unless a plate that is placed between your upper and lower intake is used. But I have no first hand experience with either nitrous kit, YET:D

Thanks for the info so far, I guess I should have told you that I already have a set of gt40p heads. I took off a set of unequal lenght shorties, and am thinking about which set of long tubes to get... The car has 3.73's which I think is plenty for the fox. I have 4.10's in my 03 and they are bad a$$.. The fox also has an intake. I was thinking of buying some different heads and a cam first.. and then procharging it in the upcoming summer... The only problem is I never stick to the budget and I go all out then sell the car lol...

As far as the goals for the car I would like to get into the 11's and still keep it on the street.. Its more of a toy than anything, my buddy has a 90 with a built 351 in it and that car is very impressive... I would like to start off with all motor but not limit myself to just that, in the future if i want to boost it I dont want to not be able to because of the build
