Re: horsepower

450WHP is gonna be the limit and still be safe. There are tons of people with 05-10 pushing 500WHP safely but I wouldn't.

I'm saying stock internals. Like if I put an exhaust and a Cai and a few other things then slap on a supercharger and push between 400-450 rwhp would that be safe for getting decent life out of the car? And I know a place that does good dynos tunes and only works on mustangs

---------- Post added at 08:13 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:09 PM ----------

Also I drive pretty conservative and only get on it if someone else is trying to mess around or just a little here and there
