    I've been building this 5.0 with my friend and have put a lot of time and effort and his money into it. It's really heavily modded, and I finally got to race a bone-stock 02 Trans-am at Kil-Kare on Friday. I really expected to do better. Here's what's in the mustang:

    I am still using the stock heads as $ wasnt available to pop for some nice aluminum ones and I haven't hooked up the nitrous because we couldn't afford it after all of the other parts.

    Now for the results: 14.6@94mph for the mustang, 13.3@107 for the LS1. WTH??? Need some help... those LS1s are fast!

    Twin-Turbo is a winner!

    Damn, I forgot to add the "Tornado" supercharger we picked up at the autozone last week.
