Re: I have a ?

Very rough estimate.... and ballpark, I'd say you're probably sitting around the 290-300hp mark. There's plenty to make it quicker..... just depends on your budget.

You could put on a set of underdrive pulleys and a tune for some quick ponies.

Ok so I have a question as well. I may be rebuilding a 2004 mustang and I want to put in a manual transmission and new engine into it. If the engine and transmission come together is it possible to put the set into the mustang that was originally an automatic car? If so how?

K....if you still have the stock plenum the rest of your mods have done nothing to increase hp. The plenum is the real restriction in the air intake system. I have the same basic mods other than I punched my stock mufflers out and I felt no gain til I installed a professional products plenum. Woke the car right up. Whoever wrote 300 hp obviously didn't read your mod list or has no idea about mod motors

Actually it not.. The front end is made to peel away like that to Cushin the blow.. But if u measure the distance between the bottom corner of the glass and the center of the shock tower bolt the distance should be the same.. I measured it and it was about a 1/4 an inch off.. If was more than an inch it would be.. But u can get the front end replaced.. I learned that from Joe Hebert at Ascention Pony Cars in Prairieville. They have a salvage yard in GA that has a front end I can buy for 350 and get someone here to wield it on..

If that frame is bent at all the car will never dive that same, might be better parting it out making a few bucks rather then having a salvage title and car being worth $1500, but if you think that it can be fixed then I would do it. Just the frame is what worries me

For sure my dad had a 03 Roush and bent the frame. He loved it so he fixer her cost him 5 grand to fix the frame alone. Wasn't the smartest thing he did but it's a sweet car.

Ok well back to the question.. If I fin a a manual transmission wat all do I need to make sure I have. I need to no anything and everything to convert it to a manual. Like I said there won't be any engine or tranny and I'll buy that as a set. And I am going to put a new front end on. I had forgot to mention that they talked to a mechanic and the guy said the frame wasn't bent. So there goes those worries. I will install everything basically myself. I will get the parts step by step in order so just need to no if got to get a different radiator, do I need to make any mods to the tunnel, will the shifter go right in.. Stuff like that. Please guys I Ned all the help I can get

Mustangs are unibody. They don't really have a frame. The whole car is the frame
