What to do next?

After this weekend, my 04 GT will have a cold air intake, 73mm throttle body/plenum, underdrive pullies, stage 3 cams, 47 lb injectors, msd ignition, longtubes, off road h, no cats, egr delete, new valve springs and retainers, adjustable cam and crank gears, upgraded fuel pump, front and rear strut bars, lowered 1.5", subframe bars, front and rear anti roll bars, steeda short throw shifter and stage 3 clutch, caster/camber plates, and 3.73 gears..

It will be dyno tuned afterwards... So first what's a rough estimate as far as hp and tq? And what can be my next mods? I really want to Goto a f-1 procharger, also I have a 150 shot but it won't get used very much

325 hp!

You have the bolt-ons pretty much covered except for rear lower control arms and under drive pulleys.
If you want to go FI, I suppose that you should start thinking about the supporting fuel system mods...

If you are planning on a F1 head unit. You better build the bottom end, bc the F1 will be a waste on a stock motor. Also better be looking at something more than 47lb injectors.
And stage 3 NA cams will be a waste in a supercharged motor.

Honestly you need to rethink your build from step 1 if this is your goal

I've got the pullies, and have an upgraded pump and injectors..

So I was thinking some weight reduction stuff, tubular k member, lighter driveshaft, the control arms, lighter racing seats, fiberglass hood.. Then of course some FI next tax return..

Right now all I have is the pullies, cold air, throttle body/plenum, short throw, stage 3 clutch, o/r H and exhaust, 3.73 gears, lowered 1.5" and the strut bars..

So will I notice a big difference with the tune and new parts? (Headers, cams, fuel goodies and subframe connectors, dyno tune)

1. Just a pump and injectors won't be good for a F1 head unit build. You will need a full return style sytem.

Haha.
I read your first post like 5 times looking for pulleys!

Yes! Aside from building the motor and raising the compression ratio, you have done everything for NA.

What are your goals for the car? Road race or drag race?

I was looking at tfs heads, but I think I will tell a big difference from the hp I'm at now which is probably 265 maybe... But it's my daily driver lol I take it to the strip every once in awhile

Bone stock is 240 at the wheels correct? So with the pullies, throttle body/plenum, o/r H ,exhaust and cold air in probably 265 now right?

So if he can squeeze 325-330 out of it with the 91 tune I think that would be a huge difference

Different dynos will show different numbers but you are right in the ballpark.

This is Rapinator's field of expertise but the setup that you have should work very well with nitrous. With a 150 shot you will be right around the limits of what the stock rotating assembly can handle, as far as horsepower.

Forge it and do the heads and cams then spray it. Plate kit 200 shot.

A NA cam will work perfectly for nitrous

It will add some horsepower at high RPM's but you will lose a LOT at lower RPM's.
They aren't good for daily drivers...

Guessing 295 rwhp currently. What exact cams are you getting? Like actual part number. "Stage" is just a marketing term. My guess is comp 270s.
