If its a stock 5.0, a stock replacement would be fine. I've got a 94 gt also, an I just did a clutch. For 150 bucks, i got a clutch, pressure plate, and a tob. And the clutch is strong. My car has no problem breaking the tires loose in 3rd gear.

If you want an aftermarket though, I'd recommend the king cobra clutch. Very strong, and not bad for a price.

Straight from fords website, they say that it will fit 94-95 gt's and cobras directly. No need to change the bell housing. Just make sure you have everything resurfaced so it's all in good working order. And break in that clutch too.

How's your budget? If its tight, then I'd say 3.73 gears, or 3.90 gears. Personally I recommend the 3.90s. GT40 heads an intake are among the cheaper heads and intakes, but you will notice a difference. The heads aren't as important, but the stock intakes on the 5.0s are very restrictive, one off of a cobra, explorer, or an aftermarket intake would be beneficial.

If your budget isnt too tight, Id go with the trick flow HCI kit. Comes with aluminum heads, cam, aluminum intake, valve covers, gaskets, etc.. Essentially every single thing you'll need comes in that kit. For us though, (94-95 mustangs) we will need an adapter for the throttle body, and a spacer for the intake. About 200 dollars more. The kit itself is 2600 dollars, but for about 3 grand, you go from a measly 225 horsepower 5.0, to a 350+ horsepower motor.

I dont quite understand what you're asking. If you cut your stock springs, then it's going to be way too soft and you'll bottom out.

Yes. If you want low, then you have to take the stiff.

i disagree with the heads not being as important. as they are the most restrictive part of a 302 motor. the e7s really choke everything down. IMO they are the single most hp maker you can buy.

and for the springs being cut. the previous owner of my car cut the springs , and i have had no isssues.

Cutting springs will be almost exclusively a looks mod. If you want tuned handling along with stance, some brand name springs would be your best bet.

my car is pretty stiff. it corners pretty good. but i was more going for straight line. i have sub frame connectors, umi lift bars, kyb shocks and struts, and the drop is probably close to 2"s

i didnt cut these springs and would probably just buy new ones. but they are fine. and i have done them to vehicles in the past with good results. the most important thing is to make sure you cut them identical. you dont want your ride sitting out of level.

but my car seems to hook up really good. if your looking for high speed cornering i would look into that kind of specific suspension.

exactly. i do think that the lower helps work well with the lift bars though. i think it increases the geometry change it was already doing with the relocation brackets. i do know was super pleased when i added the lift bars. but yeah i agree 100% with your statement.

*edit*

The difference in aftermarket heads could be nearly 100+ hp. Or what dead said. Lol

Wow that's horrible lol.

I just didn't think that they were that bad because, well, Im used to Mopars. I've got a Dodge Dakota, 5 speed, 318 stroked to a 402, making 450+ horse on the stock heads. My bad haha.
