    The only horsepower mods are the X-pipe and the K&N. I would say that you have around 190-195 to the wheels which is capable of running a mid-high 14 with a decent driver. Don't waste your money on a stroker kit at this point in the game, you don't have the right stuff to put on the top end. Your doing all the right stuff so far, it sounds like your just getting the car in good shape with the tires and clutch. I would get a new fuel pressure regulator, plugs, wires, cap and rotor while your doing the basic stuff, then throw a nice catback exhaust setup on and then rip into the top end of the motor.

    Stock mustang gt-215 hp @ 4200 rpm, 285 ft./lb. torque
    14.9@93 mph 1/4
    0-60-6.1 sec.
    I wouldnt expect much better than those numbers w/ your mods, but headers/exhaust will help, go with some underdrive pulleys too. Those things are not too expensive and help a lot. Gears are always a big help.

    Look at my sig, I pulled 210 RWHP w/ those mods w/ out the Cobra Upper and Lower intake and C&L 76 MM Mass air, I pulled 21 more RWHP w/ them on.

    I have a set of Rear Kumo Tires that Im going to be selling but not until this spring when I get some nittos, there 275/40/17 and have ALOT of tread left on them, there almost brand new but w/ my mods that Im doing I wont have enough traction to keep the back end down so I need some Nittos.
