max i would put to it would be a 100shot but a 75 would keep it on the safeside.

i dont mean to rain on your parade but if your goin to buy a kit why not save a couple extra dollars and get a intake and heads

just my thinking but like i said max i would do would be a 100shot for engine longevity

1991 hatch 347 forged bottom end.
Tube front end, auburn rear, 5 lug conversion,TKO500
little bit of everything.

why not put that money toward a decent H/C/I

for what you have a MSD will not do anything really noticeable.....

stock ignition is more than enough at this time......


n2o is a power adder not a power substitute.....

Your 86 Mustang doesn't have forged pistons either, unless your motor came from a newer car.

In my opinion there are better ways to get more power out of the stock motor. Then add your nitrous.

slap the wet nitrous kit on there with 150 shot and colder plugs. do a h/c/i swap for a real nice kick in the pants when you hit the little red GO button

91 mustang coupe: 331 stroker, jr heads, Vic intake, 292h cam, Holley hp carb, bottle fed, 5 lug disc swap, prostars, built rear with 4.56 gears, etc...

1985 -- 210 HP @ 4400

  • Hydraulic roller tappet camshaft introduced. 266' duration, .444 valve lift
  • Revised block (122 lb.) with two retainer bosses for roller tappets.
  • New cylinder heads, revised to allow service removal of the roller tappets
  • Distributor drive gear material changed to be compatible with steel camshaft
  • Forged pistons with low tension rings and thicker ring lands. Compression remained at 8.4:1
  • Holley 4180C carburetor, with improved secondary metering
  • Water pump impeller diameter increased to 4.4" for increased flow
  • Stainless steel tubular headers
1986 -- 200 HP @ 4000

  • Stronger block (126 lb.) incorporating "squared bores" for better oil control.
  • Compression increased to 9.2:1 with flat-top pistons
  • Masked intake valve, high-swirl cylinder heads, casting # E6AE-AA. This head was also used on 1986/91 normal passenger car engines.
  • Roller cam same as 1985
  • First year for multi-port speed density fuel injection, 58 mm throttle body, 19 lbs/hr. injectors
  • Dropped cold start exhaust control valve, header outlet size changed to 2 1/4"
  • New water pump with exit scroll and more efficient impeller.
So yes the 86 does have forged pistons.........

93 was the first year for the hypers.....

150 shot on stock guts seams to be the safe number!!!!! and yes on the colder plug I run autolite 133's and most important is your timing. My base timing is 16* and when spraying the car you have to take a bunch out depending on the shot. For my car for the 150 I take the timing back to 8* to 10* and 6* to 8* on the 175.. I have a 190 fuel pump, 65mm t/b and maf. stock 19# inj. better have some good rubber. Im at about 400hp sprayed.
