Do you know if you have a different rear end gears? 3.73, 4.10, ect. I would do gears next if you dont already have them done and then heads and cam next. What head and cam combo will want depends on what the car is used for, how much power you are looking for and your future goals. They should also be matched up to work well with your intake.

A/C delete means the air conditioning equipment has been removed. And spark plug wires are...... spark plug wires. But he probably means they are upgraded wires, MSD, Ford Racing, ect.

Yea I know spark plug wires are well just wires I copied and pasted all of the things I saw someone has put in the car and been taking notes as i got under and around the car better after looking at what it had and what he was saying it had when selling it did not match up? So I think previous owner didn't know much and it was the owner before him who did this

I was going to lift my back end when I had another nice day out so I can see what gears I have. It may have gears I have been thinking it might

+1 gears should be the first mod to any mustang imo.

I would go with trickflow topend kit. Great bang for your buck with nearly 125+ hp increase.

Personally I would go with AFR heads over trickflow, just my opinion. Any of the ford racing cams will work good with what you have. I would also port that cobra intake as well.

Just remember that afr heads aren't as friendly with aftermarket cams. They will usually require notched pistons. Especially if you go with the afr 185s.

Even they gave less clearance than the trickflow. That was my ultimate decider when I chose my heads. But with the 165s I think you can stay under 500 lift depending on duration and prolly be allright.

I use 500 very loosely. Depending on cam duration the afr heads are more likely to have the valves interfere with the pistons. The trickflow have this problem less because the valves are more centered in the combustion chamber. Whenever installing heads or cams piston to valve clearance should always be checked. If not and there is interference it could lead to catostrophic failure.

That was my conclusion to. But if are gonna run a small or stock cam then I wouldn't sweat it. also if you wanna change or have the pistons notched then it doesn't matter either.

Thanks a lot this was a lot of help dreamstang. I'm more undecided now between them cuz I'm leaning back to the tricks flows now lol well since I ran into some exhaust issues with whoever installed them rubbing my driveline think ill fix that throw in some gears and make a choice in heads i think trick flows 170s so I can run a bigger cam without issues. Now on to cams if I run the trick flows what the difference between ford racing e303& x303 or the z303s or would a trick flow can work better with a trick flow head?

Dont feel bad. I change my mind about what i want for my car 4-5 times a day lol. Look those cams up on summit racings web site, or any other company that carries them, and read their specs. It will give you their lift, duration, rpm range, ect.

Thanks Keaton5.0 ill be doin some research tonight if I don't get off work to late see if I can make my mind up on what direction I'm going with this .....I'm almost tempted to just get another 5.0 before I start putting a lot more money in my current one I'd like to have another stang that I don't care to much for the looks (sleeper) just a toy to try different stuff on not in as good condition as mine :/ so I won't mess anything up wile learning to tinker on theses and regret it. it just took over half a year to find a 5.0 in decent condition and low miles and for what I was trying to pay for it.....

Doing a heads and cam swap really isnt a difficult task. And it would really pull everything already on your car together. Maybe you could pick up another complete motor cheap and take it apart and put it back together to see for yourself how everything works. There really isnt a whole lot to them. It would be a cheaper route than buying another car but then again the only thing better than one stang is two stangs!

Wouldn't do the underdrive pulleys. They'll cause charging issues, etc. I just got a set for free and I am going to chunk them!
