I built up my car over the winter and would like some opinions and suggestions on it. this is what i did to the car.

Engine.
Bored.030 over with new speedpro flat top pistons/rings
new bearings throughout the entire engine
Heavier/tougher crank out of older mustang ( not sure of the exact specs)
Camshaft out of 91 5.0
Crane 1.7 roller rockers
comp high tech pushrods
comp roller lifters
Ported stock heads
BBK SSI lower intake manifold
BBK ssi upper plenum
BBK 65mm throttle body
BBK cold air intake
Ford Racing A/C and Smog delete
BBK underdrive pulley kit
centerforce dual friction clutch
Professional products harmonic balancer
re-surfaced flywheel
MSD 6al ignition and blaster SS coil
I also had the motor balanced.

As for the rest of the car I put new KYB gas shocks in the rear and moroso weld on subframe connectors as well as 3:55's..i am rolling on falken 512's front and back..I also installed all new energy suspension bushings throughout the car.

It runs awesome.

My future plans are a more agressive camshaft as well as a MAF conversion.

whats everyones thoughts on what ive done? I dont have access to a dyno anywhere near my area, i am not sure exactly how much power it makes. Probably around 280HP or so...maybe more. Anyones guesses would be awesome...I'd like to reach around 375 HP

This site is awesome and has helped me alot with questions about my car.

flat top's are gonna possibly cause ptv issues with an aftermarket cam, i would have got a light weight flywheel and maybe 70 mmm tb since your gonna cam it mass air it before you do any cam
