Ok i havent posted in awhile been busy...lol...Anyways i bought an 87 GT vert with an AOD its has a paxton supercharger model SN93....I was going to do GT40 heads...GT40 intake, 1.7 roller rockers..But money is tight right now and the job scene is getting a little crazy...they layed off some people so i really dont want to go that crazy with the car...So i decided to leave the stock heads and intake for now...Im converting it to MAF im upping the injectors to 24 lbs...an adjustable fuel presssure regulator..Im installing a Power pipe and relocating the MAF into the fender well...Also the car has a 70mm TB too.Im also getting rid of the smog pump and all the A/C stuff including the condensor..The car has BBK shorty headers already .Im going to use an Off road H-pipe and Maybe a MAC cat back,...I will be installing 3.73's...Im installing also Sub frames,strut tower brace and in time a 6 point roll bar...My question is How reliable are the STOCK head gaskets with say around 6-8 psi of boost and do you think this car will run alot better converted to MAF will i notice a difference?...And of course do you think i can get this into the 13's....? Thanks...Oh yeah it has one of a shift kit...i think it might even have a mild convertor..I know it has a big trans cooler...:)...So this is going to be a budget build and im hoping for at least high 13's do you think thats possible?

well my 93 gt with an aod ran 14.91 and all it has is a shift kit bbk shorty headers no cats flowmaster delta 40's a/c deleted cobra intake thats been ported to fit afr 185 heads but still have stock heads cold air intake relocated to the fender well and underdrive pullies. if you have a paxton with 6-8 lbs of boost you should be running high 13's easy more like low 13's and as far as i know the stock head gaskets should hold out but i would still swap them out for a set of felpro's or mr gaskets.

Thanks for the info i was going to do a head and intake swap...but money is tight so im going to run the stock set-up for now and if i blow a headgasket then i will do heads and intake then....This isnt my daily i have a 93 GT vert for my daily so im hoping the stock headgaskets will hold up for a little while....:scratchchin

Going with a STOCK head gasket wouldn't be advised. Go with a stock style graphite gasket and upgrade the lousy head bolts up to ARP's, that'll be better.

You should have 13's no problem, shoot for the 12's! My best time is 14.12, will all mods listed below
