I would love to see the 500hp range in the future but I've read a few posts in magazines about some mustang owners reaching the 420 mark on the stock engine but having to do major mods to go further. I got my stang painted so I'll post a before and after.

Well I asked a friend here in my town about the gears he seems to insist on 4.10's but i dont know if i plan on doing much track racing but then again i dont know the true difference between the two sets of gears and what they both provide at different rpms.

I've read that for a daily 3.73s would be better. My cuz has 3.73s on his mopar and works out great. I would say a couple bolt ons and a stall would do just great to start off. That's just me.

If you're going with a procharger 4:10s will be fine for daily driving or the track. I'd say gears and exhaust to start then plan for future mods to the car

Yeah def looking into the procharger type of FI and i saw some of your comments on the recent thread about procharger vs the KB setup. Seems alot of people lean toward the centri setup rather than the PD. Seems like it would be more of a pain to redo my top end for a KB setup so i might just go with the centri and the 4.10s but i believe someone in this thread said that 4.10's would be too much gear for boost?

I ran 4:10s when I had my vortec and my procharger and I have no complaints at all. 3:73s 3:90s and 4:10s are all great gears for a centri blower. For a Kb or roots style blower I prefer 3:55s or 3:73s even stock 3:27s are fun with a roots style blower IMO

Incoming noobie question, what kind of pulley should i run for the centri? Or is it just a one size pulley thing? I know PD can use different size pulleys. And if i do run a centri on my stock block should i upgrade any internals to account for the boost? I.E. cams, rockers, etc? And can the stock trans handle it? My next purchase will be the exhaust and the gears for sure. I just ordered new coil packs and a 70MM throttle body for extra air for until i save the money for the centri then ill up it to a 78mm.

dont put any money into....save and buy a cobra. seems like a big goal, but if you really want a nice fast car, its more cost effective to cut your losses now and start fresh. I tallied how much i had into my car at well over 20k with buying price. and even though almost everything mechanical has less than 10k on it my car is still worthless and slow lol. If you want a fast car worth the money you put into it buy a cobra.

It all depends on what u add and to what car. Who's doing ur work and ur tuning. Because I seen hondas that are tten second car. But then again with a 2v there's only so much u can do.
