That link doesn't work, think you need to enable sharing on photobucket and get the link from that.

Weight is 20lbs more than it was stock with AC and PS. Expect 300+hp and 350ft lbs with the same redline at 7000 rpm. Goes to the dyno soon.

My goal was to try to be the same weight as stock. I'm not done yet.

MrJoshua that made me lol.

93 5.0 stock bottom end, Trick Flow aluminum heads and roller rockers, Holley systemax II, light flywheel, BBK longtube headers, Milodon 7 quart pan and pick up, 70mm MAF, E 303 cam, remote oil filter and RX7 cooler, aluminum radiator, electric fans, is what I recall right now.

Weight of the car is about stock, with the 5.0. without AC the car is within 20lbs of stock, but 3x the HP and 4x the torque.

This is a road car with a full interior and a stereo.

Nice. How are you tuning this, Tweecer? MS? I wish there were more intakes that weighed less, the 5.0 intakes are all so huge unless the Comp Cams plastic box is used, and that thing has no runner length save for what's in the lower intake that it's said to kill torque. Would like to start work assembling a replacement 5.0 for my Mustang in a year or so and looking for ideas.

I wanted a simple system, so the guy I went to not only dynos the car but re writes the factory computer's chip to work with the engine you have in the car. Yes, a simple rewritten chip.

My plan is to spend time driving it, not tuning it.

The systemax II works pretty well, but it does increase your engine height.
