Yea lm not a big fox fan either, I think the lx with a Saleen spoiler looks ok but I would never buy one.

That sounds like running out of fuel to the cylinders, may need bigger injectors and or f/p

Dollar for dollar you can't beat nitrous and you can run low 12s with a 5.0 pushrod on the bottle with just bolt ons. Maybe even faster than that. But you'll also need the fuel system to support it and the suspension and everything else that goes along with it.

Gotta pay to play. If you have a spare $5k lying around and can DIY you can build yourself a very stout 320whp NA HCI 5.0 or a 400whp supercharged stock longblock with a decent suspension setup and trans to go along with it.

Nah, a set of 1.7 rockers is a decent upgrade for the stock motor. I'd go do all the bolt ons first and then go from there.

Yeah they go right on you just have to make sure you properly set the lash on them. Crane 1.7 pedestal rockers would be my vote.

As far as bolt ons for a 5.0...

-gears
-full exhaust
-cai/maf/tb
-pullies (after you upgrade to a 3G alternator)
-short shifter
-suspension suspension suspension
-wheels/tires

I just read this. Talk about the competition heating up and reaching a boiling point. I hate to say this, but it seams like I learn more because someone does not know and someone else protects the knowledgeable reputation of our sight. Great job.

Thanks scotty for adding the after 3G upgrade, also keep in mind that about 70% of people have issues with the UD pullies, some have charging issues (which the 3G upgrade would help alleviate(thought not always)), others have cooling issues which could be fixed with an electric water pump(but at that point why not just skip the pullies and go 3G/electric pump) just a thought.


I would also say that upper/lower intake could be on that list, but since the heads are major limiting factor it really depends on where you want to take the build.

I sometimes forget that not everyone has owned a fox and knows about the horrific 2G alternators... On a 3G I had 0 issues and didn't on my Cobra either which rocked the stock 3G alt hooked up to a pretty decent sound system and never missed a beat. And that car had pullies too. Never had cooling issues on anything but I always changed the water pump on higher mileage cars I had.
