5.0 tuning help needed!

Im building a h/c/i combo for the stang. Trick Flow heads, ported Cobra intake, 70 mm BBK throttle body, and E cam. What do I need to maximize this combo? Is a Pro-m MAF and adjustable fuel-pressure regulator going to be good enough?

Re: 5.0 tuning help needed!

I'd go at least 24lb injectors ,maybe 30's and make sure you get the meter calibrated for the injectors ( very important ) that's about all you need , old 5.0's are simple , you can get it tuned ,but on an old 5.0 it wont be worth the $$$ for a dyno tune ,they might be able to get you 5 - 10hp , you can pretty much get it dialed in pretty good ,with timing and fuel pressure !!! I'd say 38 psi and 14' initial timing

Everything stampde said plus I would choose a Trickflow intake matched to your heads. They are designed to work together and should provide you with an increase in power.
Check out the ABACO MAF's. You can calibrate them yourself with your PC or laptop. No sending them in to be recalibrated if you change injectors.
