Once a gain I need the help of my Mustang fanatics.
I'm looking to make a little more power with my engine without going with a turbo or supercharger. Yes I want to stay N/A.
What should I look for in the next part to take my car up a little bit in hp or torque?
You can check my signature on what I have.
I've been thinking to change my heads for boss heads but it's expensive and not an easy job to do. Maybe supporting mods to better put the power to the ground? Right now I don't have that big of a problem with traction.
What I should look for... Let me know what your suggestions are.

Have you looked into the Ford Racing Cobra-Jet intake? People seem to be getting decent gains over the Boss intake. It wont be cheap as you will also need to replace your TB and CAI. I agree on valve job/porting is also an option. Also the Cobra-Jet ignition pulse ring to get a little more rpm. I think you are already beyond any easy or cheap hp or tq gains.

If you want more power than you have now NA is not the route I would go. You're going to start giving up driveability and reliability if you try to make more on muscle. I bet the reason you have no traction problems is the cams, they don't make much in the lower rpms, and just about anything you would do to add more NA power is going to bump the power up higher. It sounds like fun to drive a killer NA motor on the street, but in reality it takes a lot of the fun out of the car, the power is in rpm's that are pretty useless for the street.
