I would think u would be ok but like others have stated a dyno tune is your best option for longevity of the engine. Im gonna be buying the parts for th B302 upgrade here in a few months so that my engine will last a long time as I plan on keeping this car for a long time. Good luck I know the feeling of waiting sucks but its worth it

Nice choice of mods

Why the Accel COPs. There are guys with built motors make bigger numbers and still using the stock ones. I will be using my stock ones when my built engine gets here.

I just heard from a few people they help with throttle response because of more spark. I put them on before I bought the charger. One of the first mods I put on. Hearing now that the stock ones are a bit more reliable believe it or not. Especially once u get the custom tunes & higher H.P. Guess Accelerated aren't as good as they used to be?

Yes, very true. I'm at the peak of the HP curve and if I want more then its forged internals and a bigger charger with more boost, TVS, Whipple, Kenne Bell, etc.
My benchmark vehicle is the Roush P51 Mustang or 2010 Stage 3. They have the 4.6L engine with forged internals and the TVS 2300 charger. They put down 600-800 RWHP.

Right now I'm very happy with my car. With the UCA, LCA, Watts link, anti-wheel hop kit and Nitto tires I hook up well. But if for whatever reason i need more HP, then its the forged route.
