I would find something/anything that fits inside the holes you will be creating, and epoxy it in. That's easier than trying to fill the whole hole with epoxy. like a small bolt or nut.

This is the one I have. Very pretty. Works perfect and has maybe a few scratches but you can't tell when it is installed. It comes with a relay precut so you can wire it in however you wish.
Pm me an offer I'll ship it for free priority.

This thread reminded me of the N/A build list I did for my stang a while back.

Ford Racing 85mm Cold Air Intake (05-09 GT) $309.99
Ford Racing High Performance Intake Manifold (05-10 GT) $669.99
Ford Racing Natural Shorty Headers (05-10 GT) $319.99
SCT iTSX Wireless Tuner w/ 3 Free Custom Tunes (05-10 GT) $469.99
Ford Racing CNC Ported 4.6L 3V LH Cylinder Head (05-10 GT) $949.99
Ford Racing CNC Ported 4.6L 3V RH Cylinder Head (05-10 GT) $949.99
Ford Racing Hot Rod Performance Camshafts (05-10 GT) $729.99
Ford Racing Laser Etched Valve Covers - Black (05-10 GT, GT500) $279.99
Exedy Mach 400 Stage 2 Clutch (05-10 GT) $349.99
Ford Racing Twin 62mm Throttle Body (05-10 GT) $599.99
Ford Racing 4.6L 3V Ignition Coil Set (08-10 GT) $269.99
Ford Racing 0-Degree Spark Plugs (08-10 GT) $89.99
Ford Racing Bullitt Axle-Back Exhaust (05-09 GT, Bullitt, GT500) $399.99
Subtotal: $6,389.87

That's a lot of dough. But, it does include a stouter clutch. I bet that all those parts installed would run 10k. That is a lot of money, and I'd probably put down 350-360whp if I had to guess.

And then there still is suspension, one piece driveshaft, 4.10's... rear seat delete... yadda yadda yadda. I can put 20k in my car all said and done. But it will still be a 2005 mustang GT that gets eaten by a bone stock '11 and up 5.0. It would sound awesome though.

(yes, I know, why no LT? why no full exhaust? why no X pipe? Because I like OEM cats, and like the sound level to be manageable at low revs without the Xpipe rasp).

For that same amount, you could get a whipple and call it a day.

Yup, but if one wants to stay N/A it is a fine way to spend 10 grand imho.

Actually... no it isn't... Brenspeed 326 block + clutch, and then start adding those goodies. Or change your mind and add a supercharger and run ~600whp all day long. (till your transmission takes a dump).
