Nice numbers! Looks like a good curve too.

The curves give a great visual representation of how it runs. Great pull all through the range.

I've got Brents 93 canned tune, o/r h pipe, flows, C&L intake, pullies, water pump and 3.73's. I'm putting down 289/302. I was at Brenspeeds Dyno day back in May of 2006. Brent invited me back for a tune on the dyno at a discounted rate. He was confident that he could squeeze more pwr out. I never did take him up on the offer.

If/when you wanna go blown. Do your homework and save up plenty of $$$. Total for the kennebell kit was $6,8XX...then I went ahead and modified the kit some because of my personal preferences. So all together I forked out around $10k roughly. So make sure you're willing to part with the cash...cause it can't be recouped.
Don't let that discourage you though. If its within your means, then do it. I have not looked back once since slapping on the blower!!! Tons of fun is right as someone mentioned earlier.
I was at 286/302 before the blower went on w/93oct and similar mods (M/T though).

Scooby, Thanks for the thoughtful response. That is a trap I don't want to get into. If I put $10k into this project (on top of what I have already spent) I would be just as well off buying a new 5.0. That debate is why I haven't pulled the trigger yet. I need to be sure that these mods will result in a car I want to keep for the rest of my life (I will be 64 in April), because as you say I can't recoup it.

Pete-
Honestly, Ford, Chevy and Mopar are getting back into the
Muscle car challenge again. Prices are gonna start dropping when the new '12 model years start rolling out. Save yourself the headache. Look into a Roush, STEEDA Q-car, Saleen or Ford Racing supercharger install bought directly from them. It's serialized, warranty'd, and professionally built. All your money is wisely spent and protected. An 03 cobra is still worth $15-19k STOCK. Where the same model year GT is only worth $8-10k MAYBE and less if it's modified.
