I was wondering how much horsepower I would gain from a port/polish, and P&N intake, and a 207 cam.... I was planning this for next summer, and it's a nice chunk of change.. just wanna make sure I'm getting what I'm paying for.... or would it be better to save for something else?.... I know I want to get 8.8'' rear end with trak-lok and 3.73 gears. I'll need a chip at the same time as the gears... so that's an additional $400.... maybe this is a two summer project?.. would it be best to get the rear end and gears and chip first? I'll have to get a new chip when the P&P is done... or no? Also, does anyone know of a vehicle that has an 8.8'' rear end with 3.73 gears and trak-lok that'll fit a Mustang?

old t-bird turbocoupes had 8.8s with 3.73's in them already. What I would do is get the gears and chip now and then when you think you're done you can get the chip burnt one last time. You don't need a new chip after every mod. I would say after gears, a new cam/heads/intake setup, and if you stroke it would be the only N/A mods for a new tune. if you supercharge or use N02, then you definately need a chip.

Anyways, sorry bout that, but you'd pick up about 30~40 hp with that cam, intakes, and head swap. Possibly more. People claim more, but I wanna see the proof and physically be there when it happens. You'd be around 230hp or so. When it comes to hp, ALWAYS be a critic or skeptical. It's not as easy to come by as most people think.

I'll make it easier, I want to get to be near what the speed of a stock GT is.... so would the P&P heads, with P&N intake, with CAI, duals, 8.8'' rear end w/ 3.73 gears and t-lok, also UD pullies.... would I be pulling close to what a stock GT is? (also shift kit)

Well I'd say you have about 205hp with is about 165 to the wheels. If you had all that stuff you've listed, I would say you'd be very close to the speed of a GT. You're slightly lighter by about 200lbs so that's in your favor. What's a P&N intake btw?

with a 99 up and bolt ons along with pp heads/intakes and a nice cam set up you can see 230-250rwhp and tq with a 4.2 ALOT MORE nearly 290rwhp and tq I would say. if you have a automatic..... lower numbers..... Ill let you know as soon as i get my stuff installed :) may be a bit though :(

I agree with most of the numbers here. with a small cam and stage 2 intakes actually you will be closer to 150 Hp or 190RWHp and stage 3 165-170 or 205 -210 RWHP. Wit the new Big Valve heads from RPM, RGR, EE or any other companies 220-230hp or 190-210 RWHP may be obtained. Once I get my RPM Big Valve heads on I will post my numbers.

A BV lower intake? How does that work?

The BV lower intake is square ported matched to the square ported heads instead of round and the runnner have far more material removed than my stage 3 lower. This will have tremendous flow advantage with the BV heads

will this mod, plus 3.73 rear end with the 8.8'' and trac-lok make me able to compete with a GT? Just compete... in the same ball park. Also throw in a shift kit
