Re: 95 upgraded hp

Supercharger or turbo would be your best bet. You could do all the bolt one but you still wouldn't be close to that. You could also look into a h/c/I package for some solid gains.

Re: 95 upgraded hp

you can build the motor (heads/intake/cam) and do all the bolt ons. You will probably be around 300rwhp or more~ thats not to far off from 350 at the flywheel.

The 5.0's are rather easy to build. You can build a beast of a motor for not a ton. Look into AFR heads etc. I dont know exactly the best parts or what not but dont just go with GT40 heads or 93 cobra stuff.

i make 456 at the wheels with a 7.5 and 3.42ratio (factory 4 banger) (street tires) the car has been a v8 for over 5yrs. and it hasnt broke yet. so i think an 8.8 with 350hp at the crank should be ok. make sure auto is in good shape though. i run built aod with a 2700 stall...it's freak'n nasty!

Re: 95 upgraded hp

I would recommend a turbo, period. Better gas mileage, better torque, and well just better. The stock cam profile is already all you need to max out the power that the block will handle. Same goes for heads/cam/intake. See on3 performance for an inexpensive setup. As far as tranny/rear end holding up, it depends on how hard you drive it, how often you race it, and so on. Technically it will all be on borrowed time regardless. FYI, the blocks are good for around 500 or so hp, anything passed that and the block will split. Plus, if it blows, you won't have to fret over the money you spent on internals that you didn't need in the first place.

Re: 95 upgraded hp

Thanks for all the info. I have been doing some research and pricing around. Looking to sell the Harley and getting back into go fast on 4 wheels. Found a 95 with great body/paint and crack in the wind shield for 1800 so I think what the harley brings I will use to rebuild the running gear and other goodies.

I turbo'd my 94 gt a yr ago, boost brothers t67 turbo. With the turbo kit, fuel system upgrade and a tune it got me up to 360hp on only 6.5lbs. 1st I had stock 5.0L block and heads. The car ran gr8 and I was able to drive it everywhere with no problems. Cost was around 3000 but did all the work myself.

Re: 95 upgraded hp

AFR heads are probably the best for the money. Why dont you just spray it?? A good 150 shot will throw ya right in the 11's for under $700. you can put it on yourself in an afternoon and go enjoy it. no tuning required.

150 shot no tuning WTF. If you run a 150 you better ****** the timing by 2 degrees. I'm running the nitrous works kit hitting the 100 horse pill on my 95 GTS with normal bolt- ons and street tires running 8.83 1/8 mile. 365 fwhp will not get you to 11's not even with steep gears.

Re: 95 upgraded hp

man, I ran 15 initial all day long in a fox body, stock motor ran 11.5@117 on a 150 shot. I just ran a 1 step colder plug. If you feel safe, then bump it down 2 degrees, most nitrous kits are fat to save the motor anyway. SN's have an even less aggressive timing curve than an A9L. If ya hear some detonation, then ****** it, if you pull your plugs and see you see the electrode looks like signs of detonation, ****** it. Just speaking from experience. I also only run wet systems, never dry.

I am spraying 125 on 4 degrees of retarded timing. If you got the money put a turbo or a supercharger. I bought nitrous cause I am poor if I had enough paper I would buy an on 3 turbo and call her a day. Or try to find a used supercharger

Re: 95 upgraded hp

2 degrees for every 50 is the safest. That, or run a few gallons of race gas, as long as you don't have cats.

Re: 95 upgraded hp

by the time you save up for a decent nos kit....do a bunch of tank fills.. you coulda saved up for a blower. with a blower the power is always there, no tank refills required. you pop your motor...just put the blower on a junk yard block and you got a fast stang again. a blower or turbo seems like a large investment, but if you have the patience to save up for it, you will be alot happier in the long run...without repeated bottle refills. everyone i know with a nos kit, at the end of the day still wanna be boosted.

Yup. I wish I could afford boost. However your motor isn't as stressed as when boosted because the nitrous is only hard on motor when spraying. Actually I could go into the pros of nitrous but at the end of the day I want a turbo. Plain and simple. And outlaw motorsporys has totally custom bent kits complete with everything for the edge 4.6 for 2600.00 bucks. A total steal for a brand new system. But I look into my kids eyes and raising them comes first. So I manage to do what I can in this hobby of mine with what I have to work with. Once I win the lotto I will order it up. And even pay someone else to install it cause I won't have to. I probably will anyway because I love turning a wrench but I will be doing it cause I wanna not cause I havta

hay..i got 2 kids, im not tryn to under play it. it took me over a year to save up for my blower. all im sayn is take the time to save up for it...u will spend more on nos in the long run. even if it takes 2 years. where there's a will there's a way. ne way, there's not all that much stress on your motor if you stay low boost. do your research and dont believe the hype. you can run pretty much run all stock crap if you stay under 14psi. safely and reliably. i make 456 at the wheels wit a 7.5 rear end and junk yard components, and i been beat'n on it for a very long while.

Oh I have done my homework and know boost is safe up to about 9lbs on stock internals. I will boost my next motor once I burn this one up. I am building a 4v 5.4 litre. Taking my time to shop for and buy all the right parts to build it. I figure I got a few years left in this 4.6 and by then the wife is working which will free up some money. I want to build my 6 yr old boy a 2.4 litre turbo fox body for his first car.... Then I can control the boost,speed limiter etc. Cars are a family affair in my household

believe me when i tell you 14psi on stock. you can go higher than that if you want. there's guys runing 18 as there safe tune on 3.8
(stock) six cylinders. when i say research..i mean talk to guys running boost. not the manufactures recommendations. not to mention...if your building a 4v, 9psi is just getn you in the door.. it can handle alot more than that (safely).

ima pushrod guy, not a mod motor guy. but i can help you with the basics. all that crap that ppl tell you you cant do..but has been done by other ppl safely. and i got sum friends wit 600 at the wheels wit stock 4v. im not a super expert. but i talk to alota ppl wit boost (even honda ppl). wutevr i dont know, i can try to find out,. you can p.m. me or i can give u my # and i will help u any way i can. stock ford components tend to be a bit under rated.

I got alot of respect for those ricers. Anyone who can get 400 hp out of 1200cc has to be doing something right. I try to absorb all that I see hear and do and apply it to my personal situation. All knowledge can be applied in a different situation when the principles are the same

that's true, their motors cant handle as much boost stock as i thought they could. but dollar for (money invested) dollar..and hp to weight ratio..the guys that know wut they are doing are force to contend with.

Most stock motors can run 10-12 psi easy, and thats any car make model 4,6 or 8 cylinders. Main reason is that it doesn't run at full psi all the time, so you'll be alright unless you are running the salt flats in Nevada or something.

the most ricer science i seen in this thread is the 400hp remark on a stock 4cyl. most honda guys have told me that their motorscant candle more than 5-6psi stock..which still puts them under 200hp crank

Re: 95 upgraded hp

Put 12 psi(more than 500 crank hp) on a stock 2v and watch the fireworks. And let me drive the 450 hp car with the stock 7.5 lol. I'd grenade it first pass. You are one lucky sob.

your funny as hell!!! and if you think the 7.5 is crazy..im still rockn the 4cyl. brakes too. and 12psi on a 2v, i think it's doable. you will probably have to put a tune on it to back the timing down a lil. but 12psi isnt that much boost, your still under a full atmoshphere.

also, i dont drag race the car. it's never had a set of slicks on it (im not crazy). im sure it would break within 3 passes or less if it hooked up real good. besides that, i got the idea from another friend that drag raced his stang with a 7.5 w/3.73 and traclok with a 427ci. he beat the car for a whole year before it broke

Re: 95 upgraded hp

im living proof that stock parts can handle more than most ppl give ford credit for. i ran my same set-up in a '90 v6-v8 tbird conversion for several years with a 7.5 never had a problem (street car..no slicks..ever).
