Mustang can handle higher boost... Camaro has an amazing motor... Mustang has a better rear end... jezz lol I'm going to drive what i want you can drive what you want

    mustang cant handle higher boost anymore--- the new 5.0 has 11:1 compression. not good for boost.

    i didn't say they cant handle any boost. i said they cant handle higher boost. and by bolting on that s\c they're only hoping to gain around 80-90 hp.

    low compression. just like the 4.6

    it's simple. you can only compress the air\fuel mixture so much before before the heat causes detonation. the higher the compression of the engine, the less boost you can apply before detonation.

    oh for sure. all you have to do is put in lower compression pistons or bigger CC heads. it's not impossible just alot more involved than it used to be for the stang boys.

    Yea, but are starting out far better than before ... I think the 5.0 is going to be much better in a the upper RPM end anyway ...

    i didn't think the 5.0s internals were forged.
    it wasn't always easy for the oval boys to go s/c'd..remember the 4v 4.6 wasn't fully forged..if they started pumping up the boost..they had to address that at some point.

    Those were 9:1 engines and came factory with forged pistons. Great for boost or a shot of spray.

    I never have likes Mudstains... When I had my '87 GN I couldn't fin one that could hang, but I was running 10.30's on slicks! Now I have my stock '00 T/A and wouldn't trade it for the world. I don't plan on modding at all, so let the Ford have fun, but you can't beat the look of. 4th gen. Just BEAUTIFUL!!!
