Horsepower on my 2000 GT?

Hey guys, as I said in my intro, I recently bought a modded 2000 Mustang Gt. My question is, can anyone estimate the horses that it's pushing?
It's got:
K&N Cold Air Intake
BBK 75mm throttle body
BBK headers
Full exhaust system (I think it's by Pypes)
SCT performance tune (NOT custom)
Staged-out clutch for my 5-speed manual.

Any other details needed, please ask!

Thanks guys!

You're probably around 250whp

1. That's nowhere near "heavily modified
2. Probably 250whp like JDF said.

Okay, maybe not heavily modified. But the STOCK horsepower is 260, so how would it be 250 horsepower?

260 is to the flywheel, after it goes through the transmission and everything you lose about 15% since it's a manual. If you dyno the car stock you won't see 260. So it's around 220-225 stock to the wheels.

I sincerly apologize! I just read that on Google that it's a lot less to the wheels. What do you think it's pushing from the engine? Also, what would 4.10 gears do for me?

4:10 gears would turn it into a completely different car

You'll be around 290-300 at the crank. As far as 4.10s, they're great gears, but you'll be doing a lot more shifting if you drive in lots of traffic
However the acceleration sure feels nice

I'm fine with the shifting, that'll just take getting used to. What's the best gear for a 1/4 miles drag? How much is the labor cost and what else do I have to do to make it safe?

Horsepower is just a number with these cars. You will never be able to claim any impressive numbers nor should that even matter. Fully built or with fi these cars move pretty quickly and can hold there own in most cases.

My friend's got a 2009 Cobalt SS/TC with a GM stage 1 tune. I pretty much just want to build my car to beat his in a 1/4 miles drag. I know I need higher traction tires, but what would be ideal to do from here?

I'm rolling through the traps near the top of 4th gear with a stock tire height and 4.10s. I spent $200 on labor because I helped the guy who was doing the install, most people pay anything from $400-$900 depending on the shop and if the parts are included in that price. As far as necessary stuff, you'll want the gears, gear oil + friction modifier, and a bearing install kit (either Ford Racing or Yukon). You can also upgrade to Carbon Fibre clutch packs like the Terminators have, and if you really want to go all out then you can upgrade to a 31 spline carrier and 31 spline axles.

I would go 3.73 or 4.10 gears with a 31 spline rear end, and Weld RTS wheels in the back with slicks. You will launch greatx

I'm going to be in auto tech next year, I've already been told he's more than happy to help us with stuff like this for free. He's a fully certified mechanic. Anyway, I'm thinking 4.10 gears and better tires. I'll have to look into those spline rear ends though.

Auto tech is a great way to learn things like that. Just remember to pay attention to how the diff is set up.

I'd REALLY recommend you get a custom tune because I've heard really bad things ab the SCT set and go tunes.

OP, I sincerely apologize for this incident. I've tried to teach Soccerluvr multiple times about cars but he just doesn't get it. Cars and motors just aren't for him but he denies it, so please excuse any misleading information he may try to tell you.

I already apologized to him, I realized I was the idiot there. I was talking about engine power and they were talking to the flywheel. I can turn stupid sometimes, sorry guys.

I paid around 175 for the Ford racing gear set and install kit. Included all fluids etc, Also bought a new speedo gear. Labor was 305. So less than 600 total.
