Can you engine handle that much HP being mostly stock? Seems like you might should beef up the internals a bit before throwing too much boost at it. Not completely sure 8-12 lbs. of boost is gonna give you those kind of numbers...

runnin any of those kits with about 10-12lbs should yeild about 500 and prolly more with the h/c/i. the stock internals will be able to handle more than the stock block can anyway so i dont see the internals being a problem.

just be careful around the 500 hp area for the sake of your block, and make sure you get a good tune, sorry that I can not give you any input on what set up to get, never looked into a turbo myself.

yea i agree it think it will...

and as for a stock block being able to handle it i would think so... there are several people on here running 450rwhp on a stock block

I hear horror stories about those guys and delivery time
they tell you 4-6 weeks, its really more like 12-16 weeks.

the third link you posted is nothing but the HP kits thru a distributor

check out www.ponydown.net , hear they make good kits and actually delv in 4-5 weeks.

Hellion is also supposed to have the 94-95 kit out soon and
they keep thier stuff IN STOCK.

If you dont mind the wait the HP kit is supposed to be nice.
just BS customer service.

Crazy, read thru all the post at this link

http://www.theturboforums.com/smf/in...amp;board=10.0

You will see that HP and PTK make good kits but have AWEFUL customer service
and delivery problems.

Turbo companies have gotten so bad with customer service that turbomustangs.com
set up a whole forum section just for people to bitch.
