First post here. What power should I expect? 1996 PI head/intake swap and cams

Hey guys. I'm 18 years old and bought a 1996 Mustang GT last summer and immediately did the PI intake manifold swap because of the old leaking one. Now I'm having a cooling problem so I pulled the engine to change out all the gaskets and decided to do the full head swap. While I've had it apart I have been working my butt off for some money and decided to get stage II 268 comp cams. What power should I be expecting when it gets back together? And should I do a dyno tune or just handheld? Thanks!

With cams, I would do a dyno tune. Have you done anything to the exhasut? Do you have an after market plenum/TB?

With the comp cams, pi heads/intake, I would expect 300ish (300 being on the high end) to the wheels...just a wild guess.

Have you made sure your PTV clearance is ok? Better get that checked if you havent yet...

All I have done so far is pypes O/R x pipe into super 44s. Thinking about a throttle body, plenum, and cold air set from AM or somewhere before I get the tuning done.

Don't be concerned with dyno numbers....they honestly don't prove much. You will notice a difference but its not going to be anything spectacular. Full exhaust LT headers will help out also if they are in your budget.
