01 bullitt

Just picked up a black 01 bullitt 80xxx miles wondering what mods are worth the time ..goal is to be around 3oo rwhp on motor with no internal work.. Right now car has bbk off road x pipe magna flow exhuast k&n filter looking into getting 4:10 gears with sct bama tuner off americanmuscle.com... Is a throttle body or mass air or cold air intake worth the money on a bullitt thanks for replies

I would look into getting the gear and tuner combo, it's pretty much a must when installing gears and it'll really wake up your car

The tuner is the must lol

Cool car, question about the K&N Filter. Is it Just the filter inside the factory intake system; or is it the K&N FIPK intake system?

Re: 01 bullitt

ok cool, I ran the K&N system for years on my V6. it performs very well for a short ram style system. I honestly prefer a fender well Cold air. Any brand will work. Just keep in mind that for emission reasons I would keep the K&N, or get a BBK / Mac cold air as they are 50 state legal and have a "C.A.R.B. EO #" sticker

The '01 Bullitt is just a special edition rebadged GT!.. Performance wise there is no difference!.. So anything to improve it's performance is worth it to me!.. The gears and tuner combo will be a great wake-up-call for your ride!.. A tuner is a first mod must in my book!.. Getting to about 300hp at the wheels with just bolt-ons is possible, but you won't get much more with out touching the motor itself, or with out going FI!...

I knew a guy once before that had one of the older Bullitts like that that!.. His intake was identical to that of the GT!..

Ok cool!.. Just weird that I've never seen that intake before!.. Know of anywhere I can pick one up for cheap?.. If it's got similar performance gains as the TrickFlow but without have to shell out $800+ for it!...

Agreed! If it is truly a Bullitt, leave it as is or you'll regret it trust me!

You may have seen rebadged GT's to look like bulitts! Lol

---------- Post added at 05:15 AM ---------- Previous post was at 05:12 AM ----------

The stock bulitt intake is a good performance adder for a stock GT, but something to look into is the alternator. I believe (could be wrong) that they have a different alternator then the GT's. That's why the trickflow has you turn the alternator around on the GT's. The intakes are really good for FI and there's room for porting if you desire.

where you sit now vs 300rwhp is a long road and I dont see you getting there without building the motor or going into it at least.

You can get there with bolt-ons!.. I'm at about 275hp at the wheels and all I've got is 75mm TB, CAI, Pullies, O/R X-pipe and cat back, and a tune!.. Another 20 can be had with LT Headers, which should put me at or just under 300hp!..

To hit it you'll just have to basically throw every Bolt-on onto it!..

Do you happen to have a dyno that shows you at 275?? Because I was dynoed with 70mm TB/plenum, CAI, Long Tubes, O/R prochamber, cat back and a tune and i put down 268rwhp. That means I had your mod list minus pullies which are MAYBE 5hp and i had LTs which added at least 20hp. I believe you are confused...

There is a formula (I forget it off the top of my head) that you can use by taking your trap times, your trap speed, and weight of your vehicle, to give you a HP average!.. NHRA used it for a number of years because there really isn't a Dyno that can truly measure the amount of power they are putting down with the Top Fuelers and such!... My 275hp is an average from all last season runs between two different tracks!..

I've also got the matching 75mm Upper plenum, Intake Spacer, and MotoBlue coils!.. Didn't mention them before because I'm not totally convinced they are all doing that much for me!...

---------- Post added at 10:51 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:48 AM ----------

And as far as that Bullitt intake I think I'll just wait and get the TrickFlow instead!.. It at least uses your stock GT parts and gets the same goals!..

Well most people on here go by real dyno numbers. You can take a stock gt, do a ton of suspension mods, and get a way faster time but that doesnt mean you ever gained the first extra pony. Coils add no horsepower, intake spacer may add 1hp if your lucky, and on a bolt on gt the extra 5mm on your TB/plenum combo wont help you any at all. Not trying to bash you or anything i just dont want anyone to read this then go to the dyno for real numbers and wonder why their numbers are so low

I've read multiple articles that dyno the 01 bullitts and they hold the 275 to the wheels like ford says. So picking up 25 ponys should relatively easy without tearing the motor completely apart.

That's just it!.. Dynos don't show real world numbers!.. Dynos are mostly only good for showing improvements over what you had before!.. My numbers come from running at two completely different tracks, on hot days and cold days, and everyday in-between!.. Most people that base numbers off of Dynos only go to one a couple of times!.. If that many!.. Lol.

And I know some one is going to want to say, "Well this dyno this, or That dyno that!.." Don't!.. Dynos are tools and nothing more!..

It's a trade off really. Real world at the drag strip will show you how much your mods picked up the car by trap speed and time. However a good example of how the two can misrepresent is gears. Go from stock 3.27 or whatever to 4.10 and of course you're gonna improve your ET especially with sticky tires but the trade off is on the dyno if you were to do back to back runs with just a gear swap..... The 4.10's will actually show a HP drop usually 10-20 HP.

It's all relative. Dynos are great for dialing in you A/F especially on FI or nitrous cars.

You should be able to get 300rwhp or very close with full bolt ons. I know those who have put the trickflow upper motor package on theirs have shown significant gains in the 360+ rwhp numbers. But I think that's more work then you are after.

No they arn't to be honest. They are a waste of money unless you want your pulleys to look fancy. Other then that, save your money
