Best way to get my 2010 gt to 400hp naturally aspirated

Hey guys I recently bought a 2010 gt and I was wondering how could I get it up to 400hp with bolt ons. Let me know what you think the best way to gaining that much hp in my 4.6 gt.

i think the only way ur gonna be able to do it is if you do internal work
and for that money you might as well get some form of F/I

You are gonna have to get basically every bolt on under the sun and its not worth it.Your best bet is with these cars is a blower.

If you really want to go that route go to s197forums.com and look for MattD he has a NA S197 and runs a 11.11 in the 1/4. I highly doubt you will run that in the 1/4 even with his same motor mods.Unless......you want to do a major weight reduction like he did.He car weighs about 3200lbs or less.That's pretty much a fox body with 400WHP.

FS- My 4.6 3 Valve NA Motor - WWW.S197FORUM.COM

Update for you, Matts engine is actually for sale.Now I know you are not looking to buy but there is a complete list of what he has done to the engine to give you a idea of what you would be getting into In order to reach that 400NA HP.

Hope this helps.

Hey thanks for the help! Now I can just add to my engine a bit here and there and eventually get what I was looking for.

Hey is this a daily driver? If it's a weekend car then I'd say steep gears and working on a good launch would do more for you than just HP numbers.

But if it's a daily driver then gears will kill you at the pump, it would be way more cost effective to trade it in on a 5.0 that gets well over 26 mpg on the highway with over 400 hp.

Besides, doing all those bolt ons on a 5.0 would get you close to 500 hp at the crank.

If not just get a blower and be done with it

400hp N/A (at flywheel) vs stock your at 300 its not gonna be easy without major modifications. I would do all the bolt ons and get a good tune, that will put you around 300-330 rwhp (if auto if course the lower end). Thats not 400 at the flywheel though.

You could sell it and get an 03/04 cobra for a great price, have 425 stock hp, 600 for 2k invested... hmmm
