Default Holley systemax 2

Does any one have Holley systemax 2 in their car?
Is it better than Trick flow engine kit?
It took me almost 5 years but I can afford to buy one now.
I have 24 lbs injectors, 190ltr fuel pump, 75mm maf and 70mm throttle body on its way.

The intake is better, but the heads are not.
Twisted Wedge heads with Holley Intake would be good.

I know iceman had the Holly kit on his fox. Put him into the middle 12's I believe. Good kit, looks awesome too!

both kits are decent kits for the starter mustanger...who want's to have all the guess work taken out of ordering piece by piece.....however if you want to maximize your power output for less money then you can put together your own combo for cheaper that'll produce more power......but if maximizing your potential is not a huge goal and all you want is a quick solution to some more power with no guess work then both of those kits will meet your expectations

do r.barns suggestion it is the way to go and theres not much guess work and go to cam inovations and get a cam and springs from him and your setup will be sweet.

You may or may not be able to make power for less. It depends on what you are willing to give up.

All in all, the trickflow kit is one of the best bang for the bucks.

The Holley isn't any better than the Trickflow intake. It all depends on what your goals are for the car, to which one is 'better' than the other.

this isnt true AT ALL..

I made 276rwhp on a GT-40 top end (stock Cobra equipment). Many TFS top end kit owners dont even break 285rwhp.

so.. $700 GT-40 top end kit... ot $2200 TFS top end kit.

the extra 10hp isnt worth $1500

Do you have all accessories?

I don't think you are comparing apples to apples. Did you get new bolts? New rockers? New pushrods? New Heads? New Cam? New Intake? New gaskets?

I have seen SEVERAL combo's make over 300rwhp. Go do a search all over the net with users that have the kit.

Good Luck.

Give me a link to the top-end kit you are talking about? Are your heads aluminum?

lets see. $100 intake, $100 heads, $150 cam. Head bolts are $100, gasket kit is about $130

dont think I missed very much there...

next time you think you can prove me wrong... dont try.
