Nice! :bigthumbsup I need to drop some gears in asap! (still stock). Post up some vids with the gears? And cams are gonna be an expensive job as you need 4. I want to go that route as well, I'm a sucker for a well built NA mustang. I think a guy on svtperf. spent a little over $2k on those, (kind of an aggressive cam) but that's including retainers, springs and all that good stuff.

In My Opinion: Cams aren't worth it on a 4V until you've done everything else. For the price of those cams and install and retune, you could have bought a used supercharger and made 100 more horsepower.

But yes, 4.30's are awesome........:bigthumbsup

Here's a video of 4.30's in a stock engine Bullitt for the guy asking. And the Cobra responds better to them than the 2V. The blue Bullitt was running 3.73's and has cams and was running M/T Drag Radials. My green Bullitt has stock cams, and was running on Nitto 555R's:

True, cams are expensive for a 4v :/ but once done it sounds awesome. Just you might regret not having just gone FI after all the money spent. Problem is finding a good used SC for the cobras. Hahahahaha dang those 4.30's owned those 3:73's! Thanks for the video, that helps a ton!

I found my car to drive much better with a Kenne Bell 'boost a spark"...
Next like Bullitt says, suspension work...upper and lower rear control arms at a minimum
Cams are cool, but yeah, expensive...consider a 100 shot of NOS

I was only in the 1st 4 videos. After that was my buddy Joe's True Blue Bullitt.

2780lbs without me in it, and I'm right at 200lbs depending on the day. There's still quite a bit left that can be taken out, but everything that has been modded was done with weight reduction in mind.

Still crazy, Im 6' 196 lbs and my car weighs in at 3270 even with my extra power I cant beat that weight reduction you got there, Im stuck in the 13's but i recently grabbed a 100 shot so we shall see :laughlitt

My cars all high end power atm with heads and cams, I can get moving but its a duck off the line im hoping the 100 shot will get its fat ass moving =X
