^+1 these cars respond well to mods. Not hard to get 350WHP on a N/A car.

I'm near the 350whp mark and have to say, the car is a lot of fun n/a. Revs high with the cams and super reliable. I could probably surpass 350 w/ udp's, elec h2o pump or a bit larger injectors and another tune but I figure what's the point. The suspension mods I've done along with running DR's allow the car to hook extremely hard off the line and barks hard on upshifts. It ****s and gets stoplight to stoplight lol and probably runs in the mid 12 second range so I'm happy with that in my DD. I can also swap just about any part on/off this car in my garage on jackstands and ramps in an afternoon's time.

I'd love to put a centri s/c on it and would shoot for a safe upper 400whp on the stock components with a good dyno tune but have been investing in other areas lately and unfortunately I'm not that wealthy...yet lol. I do love my little 3V mustang though. It's a blast. I'm sure I'll start dumping money into it again real soon.

so is 2010 4.6L engine the same as 2005 to 2009
because someone was saying you get less hp for mods with 2010s
I want to get my mustang to 350wHP with bolts ons, meth injection and a tune (SCT)
Remember though, these cars put out a lot more torque... Thats key in the drag races.
