Well, some guys want to beat those cars N/A. And its really something when a all motor, no power adder car can outrun a s/c'd or turbo'd car.

Different strokes for different folks.

Plus he's wanting to beat his dads 99 Cobra, they're the None supercharged Cobra's so motor to motor is what he's after.

i think there some good info here guy's...alot was thrown out,and like this person said he's not familiar with parts..

intakes....edel/holley/trickflow top three...cannot go wrong either way
heads.....afr/trickflow/brodix
cams.....lunati/trickflow/and there's custom
blocks....outside of dart/manowar/dss level20.....stock.....just put some forged lite pistons,and maybe a girdle...any more is just a waste.


like i said any manufacture listed you cannot go wrong with..

Personally I would just do heads/cam/intake and a mild supercharger. That could be done for close to 5g, prolly a touch more depending on the parts you pick, and it would give you the streetability and HP numbers that you want.

Comp Cams and Crane Cams are also good brands, both make many cams for different applications.

ah really? I hope to have good luck, I went with the Steeda #19 Camshaft, and after I got it I noticed that it is indeed built by Crane.

You have a ****ing cobra. Get a Tune and chip, forge the internals and get a 100 shot of NOS and you'll be about 370.

Get a Powerdyne S/C....with stock internals and 10 psi of boost with a good tune.....you can hit 400 hp for under 2g's........Just my 2 cents

the best way for low cost. is get a good intake and all the suporting mods, then get a s/c run 8psi and you be like 350hp. if you want more crank the boost up.

400 hp 5.0 can be built for around 1'100 bucks with a stock bottom end !

I had a 430 HP 302. No power adders.
Cost somewhat more than $6500 when it was built about 7-8 years ago. This also was NOT a street engine. Race only.
Didn't really last that either.
I really don't see how you are going to get your 400HP without some sort of a supercharger........

Car craft did one about 3years ago. Stock roller block with aluminum heads and carberated. Im picking up a block next weekend to shoot for it myself. Comp makes a set of dressed aluminum heads that can be found on ebay for around 500 bucks. And the right cam can be found there too.

I'll pay attention to this 8 year old thread now, lol

And no disrespect Steve, but 400 hp NA 302 for $1100, really isn't possible. Unless your starting with a built 302 with 395 hp.
