There are also good power gains by getting your heads ported and replacing the stock cams. A bit costly but well worth it.
The pump and tank are plug and play. They use the same wires as the stock pump. If you are going over 600rwhp I would suggest fuel rails.
12's with 410's & DR's. Mine went 12.86 @ 105 w/1.78 60' when it was on a prepped track.
Thats just about what mine Dynoed when stock, after I did the same mods you are planning it Dynoed at 294rwhp and 293rwtq.
I believe they are 39 lb. injectors.
Gene Evans Ford is also pretty cheap on their Ford Mororsports stuff.
The KB bar is NOT NHRA approved. Its more for stiffening but not a ROLLBAR. Removable rear cross bar will not be safe and not be NHRA approved....
I dont think less of the 03/04's but I would love to see Ford make a N/A 400+rwhp Mustang, then add a blower to that. :D
01 stock you should get around 22 to 26 on the highway, after a few mods like I did and you'll get about 1 mile a gallon at WOT. :D
I have CPR fuel rails, I think they came from Modular Performance.
Go with the 03 pump and tank. It will support over 500rwhp and you can add fuel rails and get it over 600rwhp without going return style.
I ran into the same problem using 55's, stock rails, 03 pump & tank, NO boost-a-pump. I replaced the rails and now have great A/F (11.5) out past...
I use the Magnaflows and I'm vary happy with HP! If you want more HP put cutouts in.
I still have the 3650, but when (not if) it goes I'm going with the auto.
My 3650 has held together for around 100 passes, 75 stock and around 25 with some nasty hp and tq on a solid rear. I'm sure it will break this year...
Get the 03 and mod the **** out of it. The 03's are power monsters.
Traction control is gone on mine. Custom tuning can get rid of it so it will never come on. We did this so the fuel didn't get leaned out under boost...
I love my 01, Trans seems to be pretty strong...have not broke it yet.
You better get some forged parts for your botton end or you'll be replacing your motor just like he's going to have to do making 570 on a stock...
