Default 5.0 taking on a 2005 GT (advice)

I have a friend (cocky bastard[:@]) at work that has a 2005 GT and he has me beat by a good bit right now, but I have quite a few mods planned for install over the next few weeks. I wanted to know what I can expect when I do my install my parts, will this be enough to keep infront of him.

As of right now this is what I have in my 1994 5.0
-GT-40e Manifold
-65mm TB
-70mm MAF
-MAC U-Pullies
-MAC Headers
-Flowmaster exhaust (2 1/2")
-BBK CAI
-3.73 gears

I dynoed at 224.2 HP and 300.5 [email protected] 4000RPM

I am adding the following over the next two weekends:
-Twisted wedge heads and 1.6 rr
-Double roller timing chain
-e303 cam
-new push rods
-new lifters
-24 lbs inj
-225 lph in tank fuel pump
-Tuning by the Dynoshop in San Diego

As of this moment the '05GT is stock with the exception of the shaker for power. Thank you and let the comments begin.

with those mods youll win, for some reason the 05" gts seem slow, I beat a stock one about a month ago..the mods are in my sig...We raced from a roll 3 time I won all 3 times by about a fender or a little more, it was close.

2005 Mustang
Engine Type 4.6L OHV 24V V8
Displacement 4.6L (281 cu. in.)
Horsepower 300 @ 5750
Torque 320 @ 4500
Compression Ratio 9.8:1

your already putting down more torque to the wheels and with your new mods thats just gonna go up. your hp might still be a little less but torque is would wins races on the streets, unless its more than a quarter mile.

My dads 05 gt runs 12's with not a whole lot done to it, just basic bolt ons and a tune. If he's stock you might have a chance.

your just to heavy....you'll need about 300 to the wheel..a nice 100 shot from NX should do the trick
