    The basic princibles for engine building are the same between chevy, ford, and dodge moters. Unless your building a porsche boxter engine or a mazda rotery, Everything is basically the same, minus a few minor details....

    Nice!! It happens (stuck with a FORD!) but you can make the best of it by putting some real power under the hood

    With a Ford I would go Whipple/KB and nothing else. Just my opinion.

    I agree 100 % the Whipple and KB will make more power, but I figured for 3850 it's not too bad of a deal...

    I don't think anyone is like SOME of the folks on corvette forum. hell...I have a vette but some of them think if you don't drive a vette your scum and proceed to give the worst advice I have ever seen. I was on a local Corvette forum in Georgia (Peach state Posse) for a while but got tired of the dumbass comments like "at least I drive a corvette". OMG.......give me a friggin brake!

    Well I decided to go with the 2.85 pulley instead of the 3.00, which should give me around 9.7-9.9 lbs .. They say 10.8 lbs for that pulley , but that looks to be a little on the high side... I just want to beast those new 5.0 mustangs... I was talking with my tuner he said I should be around 440-460 at the tire with that pulley..

    I still like the looks of the 4th gen F body... It's so easy to extract big #'s on a LS platform..

    I love the look too. I had a few LT-1 cars but the LS-1 has impressed me. I like the interior of your style mustang alot better. My brother has an 05 and the seats are a dream compared to mine. When ever we race and goof off he always comes back with "my car is more comfortable" lol.
