hey i got an 1986 5.0 mustang gt. i know my friend has an entirely different car but on his rx 7 he took out some stuff from his engine that he said restricted some horsepower, so he would get small boost to his engine. my question is... Is there any stuff that i could take out of my stock 5.0 engine that will give it a little extra boost? thanks.
You could always bump the timing to 14 degrees. You would need a timing light to do that. Remove the plug by the distributor thats about 1/2" x 3/4" and black. The car will act like its running like crap. Point the light at the harmonic balancer and loosen the 1/2" distributor bolt. Turn the distributor until the timing marker points to 14 degrees. Then put the plug back in.
