re: Planning mods - What HP ??

another thing you might want to specify is what kind of CAI.

I could see why you might think so but there really isn't much if any difference in power from one to the next

Ok, even at 6-10 hp is that worth 5-600? Your car your money, and of maximizing hp is your thing then go for it, just my
.02

Anyways I'm willing to bet 415-425

The shop that will be doing the work said that 445 is wat i will make. I am thinking around 430 but they will dyno the car so i guess we will see.

In that case I'd look into heads, cams, and custom dyno tune first, other wise you're pretty much at your limit if you do not wanna do that sort of engine work.

---------- Post added at 12:05 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:04 AM ----------

A proper tune will get you there, looks at dwc smozilla, he's got similar mods to what you want and he is at 446 with a great tune

As far as I know the only heads really even available for our care are the boss heads which have something like 4% better flow, then you could go with comp cams or a custom grind cam... Check out JPCracing.com and look at their top dog package, 500 rwhp, package will run you about 5-6k if you give them your stock heads and cams as core charge.

Honestly again, if you wanna make some crazy power to FI, will cost you the same amount but you will get more like 575-650rwhp for that amount

McQueen,

We made 406rwhp on our 2011 GT auto with LT's, O/R Xpipe, Boss intake, CAI, and tune. Now keep in mind that our '11 GT is an auto, so you're going to dyno a bit lower then a manual trans. I would guess that you're going to be in the 425-430rwhp range on a cool day (with a stock TB).

You have a good setup planed for any direction you wanna go in (besides turbo). With our Bama SF3 tuners and Free Tunes for Life program you can get constant tune updates for bolt-on mods and keep your 5.0 running healthy. Plus, if you decide to go with FI, you can still use the SF3 tuner to store custom dyno tunes on, so it's always useful!

Hope this helps!

Shane

re: Planning mods - What HP ??

PD is generally considered more fun on street but for track I have seen the best use from centri. PD will roast the tires with instant boost and tq whereas the centri will build boost alont with rpms.

what do you want out of street use is the real question? driveability and slower power build or roast the daggone tires off but instantly gain speed?

Considering what you told me vortech or paxton would be better for what i want.
Thanks.

I wish they would make a glass hood like the zr1 to show off the boss mani or the SC.
Who could built one????

This is the most depressing thread in better than a week...
Price out these mods, consider the warranty ramifications... An all we are talking about is about 50 at the wheel?! F me!

I, like McQueen, had some delusions of grandeur about an NA track beast. This suck.

I agree....that is why I am only doing the Boss Intake and I will have Ford do the work and the tune on it at that time so I can keep my warranty....I will do more to void it later when I find out if I will need it or not.....at least that is the plan right now....but plans change quickly lol

I mean if you go full bolt ons you can add about 50-70 rwhp with a good dyno tune, it'll run you about 2-3k for full bolt ons and tune

Hell no, more than that lol
Full exhaust is 2,400 from kooks or SW
Boss mani with tune and cai 1300
Plus installation for the full exhaust is around 500.

The only true mod that i think all GT need is suspension, even with the track package.
