I like the sound of the shortys with an o/r h and I'm going to be making my real power with a whipple down the road

LTs will help with those cams. You should consider them before you commit to the shorties.

Shorties on a modular are a waste of money, the stock manifolds are not restrictive. Oh well if you already have them hopefully you got FRPP stainless ones.

Like I said the exhaust really isn't for power that's why I'm going supercharged soon. I was just wondering what kind of numbers I could expect with all my mods thus far.

True but later down the road you will want long tubes to have more power flow

Boo hoo.....this is the interweb. You are gonna get all kinds of opinions. If the OP knew how to make the most power like you stated then he would have never made this thread asking how much power he would make with his combo.

We'll alittle disappointed I got the car back from the dyno and only pulled 296 rwhp and 286 tq. I know everyone is going to say that shorties are worthless but I expected more from the o/r h with the rest of my mods

Wha??
That's WITH cams and bolt ons?
Tbh I think those shorties are holding you back. And I think gear ratios affect the final dyno numbers but I'm not sure

Well that's lower than I thought for sure lol. A couple questions though.

1. What kinda wheels/tires did you dyno with
2. Did you know mustang dynos usually read low?
3. What was the weather like?
4. Did the shop custom tune it or?
5. What gear was the final pull made in?

Stock wheels and tires. 235 all around. Mustang dynos factor in a lot more factors than dyno jets It was in the 50s when I did it It was a custom tune
And it was in 4th gear for the pull

Well stock wheels and tires are best for dynos because of less weight. And you can bet it would probably be another 20hp or more on a dyno jet lol. The custom tune could be very safe also, which could put you down on power. And they used the correct gear!

Yeah but it's not all the numbers it's how much you enjoy the ride. And right now I love it it sounds amazing and it has power too.

This x1000. Dyno numbers are great until you get your *** handed to you by someone making less power with a better setup. Perfect example is the GT500 guys making 800+hp and can barely run a 10.

Exactly. Numbers are just on paper. The enjoyment is what matters
