I recently bought a 2002 mustang gt with the common bolt ons and a procharger with a 3 core infer cooler. I got it dynoed and it was 401hp and 396 tq. I want to get into the 600 range and to do this I realize I need to forge my internals. My car has a mild street strip cam nothing big at all. I want to change my cam while the engine is out anyways. What's a good brand and lift? It is my daily driver so I don't want it crazy aggressive but I want to know its there at the same time.

personally, i was going to use comp 270 cams with a eaton until i built a high compression N/A motor. imho, i would go with mhs 2-3 blower cams and turn up the boost. i would also keep the compression in the 9.5:1 to 10:1 to help with the low end lag and will get you more rwhp with less boost. ported heads and edelbrock vic jr intake manifold will help out too.

I have stage 1 ported heads from patriot. I have kooks long tube headers to basani x pipe to car back back flowmasters. I will look into those cams. Are those pretty common cam choice ? Is it really aggressive? To get to 600 all I need from what I understand is to forge those internals an then a different belt and that'll get me there. I just want a new cam sense it's not everyday that you can get to your cam easily
I'm in the process of getting the same exact power like you and I can tell you that you're going to need a bigger fuel system that comes with dual fuel pumps and you'll need an 8 rib set up so you won't have belt slip.
How much is the 8 rib? And also what kind of upgrade should I go with? What sized injectors? I was thinking about going with the twin fuel pumps that slip into the same tank. Just it's a different hat that fits two pumps. That the right way to go or what?
