    i think they are badass trucks. And supercharged ford V8s show huge gains from simple mods. There is a guy on here ZAPFOOL! who has one. I think he has like 500hp. He is a good person to ask.

    mods:
    cold air intake
    4 pound lower pulley
    factory tech valve body
    bassani mid pipes w/ high flow cats
    bassani bx catback
    hotchkis TVS
    mail order tune from amazon racing

    made 385 rwhp and 499 rwtq on 91 octane

    best time of 13.089 @ 104 on street tires...so close


    the only mustangs that keep up are the newer GTs, mach ones, cobras (99 and up), a stock to lightly modded ls1 f-body is a close race....., ls1 GTOs are easy...the ls2 gtos are close ....havent had an import or other truck come close and yes that includes an SRT 10

    any other questions

    Thanks for all the info. Do you think all of your Mods were worth it?

    oh yeah....just be sure to get a good tune.....remeber a 50 shot acts like a 100 shot on a blown application...highest I would go is a 75 shot...its easier just to swap pullies and add boost

    you want an 03/04...the whole spark plug thread issue got fixed....but an 01 and up will have 380 HP and 450 FT/LBS versus the 360 HP and 440 FT/LBS of the 99/00...also you get a 3:73 rear end in an 01 and up versus 3:55 in 99/00
