more torque.

I have a 2012 5.0 GT with a 93 race tune, LT Headers and Magnaflow exhusg. Planing on getting a one piece drive shaft. My question is that I would like to get more torque. So what direction should I go. There seems to be a lot of good mechanics on this forum with good advice. Thanks for any info I can get!

Id get gears.
3.73 or 4.10s
It won't show tq but it'll give you more up and go.
Hope that helps.

Yes, but at about 2.5-3k it picks back up, and it picks up what? 20tq? If not more tuned?

He has gears, so I'm thinking a set of NSR cams would be a nice thing to get.

TQ is all bottom end. A high reving motor will make less tq. Turn the 5.0 into a stroker and then you will have it all day long. The cams are great from Ford and the aftermarket ones really won't help on the bottom.
