I cant decide which route to go with the car now.

I want more HP but I am never home to drive it or go to the strip(1/8th mile)

I am getting a PPRV delete done sice its making my dual pumps max out.


I cant decide what route to go.

1. retune after the delete and see what I really make as I sit.
2. Pulley, tune
3.better cams, pulley, tune
4. Ported heads or Patriot heads, cams, pulley, tune
5. Trickflow 44cc TH heads, bigger cams, pulley, tune and return style fuel
I will be getting a 78mm TB/P regardless.


Mod list as I sit:
5.1 stroker
Vortech V2 T-Trim
3.33 pulley on 8psi
aftercooled
anderson power pipe
egr delete
HP292 cams
03/04 cobra hat
two walbro 255lph pumps
alum flywheel
alum driveshaft
ram power grip clutch rated for 550
stock heads/springs
stock updated manifold
stock throttle body and plenum
long tubes
off road x
lm1's
4.10



I would like to go with the most power and expensive route. Money isnt really an opbject. I just dont want to spend another 5-7K on a car I dont drive but maybe once a month but I want 600+ Im at 460/432 as I sit with pprv ****ing my pumps up. Tuner said I should be 530-550 as it sits.

after you fix your fuel system Do A 2.9 Pulley which should put you in the 18-19PSI range getting you to your 600RWHP Goal.

Since you have a T-trim I say #2, with a pulley and tune, assuming your pumps support it, you should be right around 600rwhp. Now I realize money is no object, but the transmission and rear-end are probably going to be on borrowed time, if they are stock, with that much power. I'd also swap to a good inter-cooled blowthru setup instead, that's just my preference.

Edit. I'd also swap gears, unless you plan on running some serious tires all the time.

I want to do option 5 but I dont know about putting that much more money into the mustang since i am never home. But want a very fast scary car.

Trickflow heads would really raise the bar as far as potential goes. They outflow 4v heads so a bigger cam and more boost would get you the hp you're looking for.

Im not convinced on that I have yet to see a TF 2V making much more if any then a good Ported 2V on a FI setup.

Meh, i'd do number 5 if you don't plan on selling your car in, at the least, the next couple years.

Or you could buy a bigger blower and jam the boost as high as that bitch will whine :D

I do not plan on selling.

After I make this round of mods, I am sending the car to the body shop to fix the damage from the prev owners wreck and repainted. then built trans, more power, and suspension. i figure i wont get the 30K back that ill invest

But I do plan on getting TFS heads at some point, just dont know what to do first

Cabike all you really need with your combo is more Boost, fuel ans a retune.

Might as well do the tfs heads now while you have to get a dyno tune anyways.

I have a similar setup..do #5 and you should be able to crank up that boost to 20-22 max.

Just go with #2. Theres really no point in wasting money on tfs heads when you can hit your numbers like pate said. Save the money that you would buy the heads with and pick up a full exhaust and boltons for the goat :D
