The quickest and probably easiest way barring using nitrous would be to install a Trick Flow top end kit.
The kit in the link should net you around 360 HP.

Do it right. U have the appropriate funds, build everything from the bottom up. Heads, pistons, pistons rings, injectors, manifold upper and lower, exhaust, pulleys, everything.

---------- Post added at 01:00 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:57 AM ----------

Cams, gears, rear end, eliminated everything that is not needed if ur gna build ur stang for power.

How many miles are on your motor?
If you ask me it's pointless to build the top end an have the "old" bottom end..

Think of it like a foundation for a building... You don't want the taj mahal built on a swamp!!

If your gonna invest time an money, do it right!

An 10k is more than enough to build 300hp

Re: NEED ADVICE

I would go with new tires/rims, short shifter, rear upper/lower control arms, and a blower. And with whatever is left start saving up for a cam, intake, and heads!

Re: NEED ADVICE

300hp (flywheel) should be VERY easy to get with a nice motor build. The right intakes/ heads/ cam will have you there. Just be sure to spend money where its needed. If 300 is your goal and your goal for a long time you wont need any forged internals really etc.
