Finally got a little video with the new heads and intake,and slicks. i only got to run through 2 gears because of the traffic,seems like every time i try to make a video someone either wants to watch or theres too many cars around.one day i will take it down the country where theres no traffic and really let it breathe. the after video might not look much different,but believe me i can feel the difference,even at lower speeds.

thank you for all the positive comments guys.i do the best i can with what i have.im not a racer and i dont claim to be..Pop ,i have seen some of those rice burners your talking about and everyone knows what can be done with a 5.0 mustang and a decent pocket book,but i dont see to many of them every day at the grocery store,wally world,etc.if anyone wants to see someone brag about their fe's go to the dove website,he claims to outrun the fastest big block and small block chevys in the world as well as other fords and he has the worlds fastest short track ford fe powered of coarse,or claims to.he says the fe will out power and out last nearly anything out there. good fe parts are now avalable ,so if you havent done a modern fe.they have came a long way in the last 5-10 years.not just grandpas old 390s anymore.jmo

yea theres always somebody better,faster,stronger,and yes i had a smallblock or two put me in my place over the years.im just lucky enough that i dont have to many mean streetcars in my stomping grounds right now ha ha,but you can pretty much hop up anything these days.its just a matter of how much money you want to sink in it.you could sink 15-18 grand on a 600hp fe,or get a 600hp small block for less than 10 grand. 30-40 minutes away on any given weekend i could find dozens of quick cars that would blow me away at bristol int.dragway,but they are not driving their cars to work every day
