what to plan for next ?

ok so i got duals , sway bar , just ordered ud and alternator pullies , getting a cai within the month (any out there better then the K&N ?), getting new wires and plugs. so i was thinking about throwing some short headers on but i was wondering would it be worth it ? or should i save that money and put it into a port and polish job ? whats the benifits of a port and polish ? and where can i get the intakes at ?

The Short headers really wont do much for you... the Stock ford ones are not that bad... Port and polish is really two parts the port is allowing more Cubic feet per minute to be flowed into the engine... and polish is just smothing the surface on which the air flows.... thats about all i know.... it should give an increase in power... and torque...but it gives potential for alot more...

yeah, after the port and polish you can really take advantage of a nice cam, and THEN you could use some headers . ..

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

here's a step by step on how to do the upper intake yourself, or you can go to www.moranav6racing.com www.supersixmotorsports.com or www.rpm-mustangs.com.

RPM splits them and does a thorough job of smoothing the flow.

I'm saving all my motor mods for the Wintertime when it's in the garage. I did enough for this year, true duals, tires, striping, K&N, short throw shifter, and just finished building a custom sub box to fit under the mach460 surrounds in the trunk. I have been trying to get fellow Mustang owners together for a ride-in. Our first meeting is this Thursday night, and we're going to a car show at a roadside snack bar. We should have around 10-15 Mustangs in a row driving up there. It should be pretty impressive.....

Gettin' which set up? as long as you get a gasket match, you can farm out to whichever gets the job done for less.

They all do great work. And they've all held the record at one point or another . . .

If you've got the space, just pick up another engine, and get the work done on that one, then whenever you're ready you can drop it in.

After that, sell the components of your old engine.
