i just bought a 5.0 ill be doing an engine swap for a 1986 mustang lx convertible...
its a speed density not mass air..
but my question is what can i do to the 5.0 engine to bump up the HP?
i dont wanna do anything crazy like turbo or something like that can i do like cold air intake or even a chip or MSD small stuff like that...:scratchchin

Your options are almost unlimited...I have been at this 5.0 game over 20 years....IMO cold air kit, MSD and a chip are all money wasted that could be better spent on gears, exhaust, pulleys etc....you don't have to do anything radical. You can pick up quite a few horses without even taking off a valve cover. Good Luck to you and congrats....

maybe if this wasn't in the 4.6 section, you would get some responses.
