What trans is backing your 5.0? If its an AOD you can go with a 4.10 gear and still daily drive it with food gas mileage. It it's a 5 speed 373 all the way. Why are you gonna get the catted x or H pipe? You can go with an O/R setup and that will free up a lil more HP. Try putting the power you have now to the ground it may surprise you. Add the gear and maybe some Drag radials or new suspension. That will set you in your seat with a good launch. And when you want to tear the top end off definitely save for a good combo like the Trickflow setup TH recommended.

When I bought the car the guy said it has 4:10 in it now and yea it's a 5speed and the catted h pipe was just going off by what a co-worker told me what's o/r set up

The off road h or x pipe it is a non catted mid pipe which means it won't restrict airflow as much.. But some states are very tight on there emissions. so unless your car is almost 25 yrs old or you know a lick and stick inspection place. You should go with the catted one. I have always personally gone with an O/R setup.

Also if it has 4.10's and it's a 5spd you will know it.. I think you will be around 2700rpms at 65mph.. But I'm not sure about that.. If you have the gear try to get some good tires on the back to add traction.

I was thinking about that I'm in jersey my inspection good till the end of the year which is when I'll stop driving it to fix it up....so I'll go with the non cat for now and just put back the cats web going for inspection

Not a bad idea it wouldn't take too long to do that either.. I don't think it will affect your ECU at all.

If the torque isn't enough for you right now with 4.10's dropping to 3.73 will defeat the purpose.. IMO the 373 is a great gear choice but if you want more torque and power dropping to a 373 from a 410 won't do it.

---------- Post added at 10:38 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:36 AM ----------

I have ran several clutches I find Ram to be a pretty affordable clutch and they can take a beating.. Just get a 30% over stock you will be good. Also have the flywheel resurfaced!!

A new clutch and fresh flywheel make a world of difference if yours is worn out.. Also do you have a short throw?

Never owned a mustang before to be honest with you and te stick is weird it comes out crooked....so I highly doubt it has a short shifter.... Yeah I stalled out in second the other day forgot to go back in first was at a toll law I shouldn't be stalling in second so I'm assuming it's worn

That doesn't necessarily mean your clutch is bad.. It could be out of adjustment, or driver error. If your clutch is bad when shifting gears you will grind cause your clutch isn't disengaging all the way or a synchro. Or while in a gear and your accelerating it feels like it's tugging. You will learn from experience an a lil time. I would definitely recommend a short throw shifter. They are easy to install and will allow you to jam gears much quicker.. You can also adjust them to keep from overthrowing a gear and harming your trans.

There an awesome set of heads. But I would hold off on them for now if I were you. Get the Trans perfect. Then look at a H/C/I swap the trick flow setup will work great and can be installed by you if you can swing a wrench.

Yeah heads/cam/intake. possibly injectors if you go with the Trick Flow setup. Usually end up upgrading the TB and MAF also upload some engine pics if you can lets see what you have.

Is anyone else having trouble uploading pics to there profile by phone?

From what I see the only mods you have are aftermarket headers and CAI. You can go to a junk yard or get on Craigslist and find a GT40 upper and lower intake really cheap that will be a good starting point.

---------- Post added at 01:35 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:34 PM ----------
