    I don't know much about the 5.0... but my buddy just purchased one and was contemplating going either the H/C/I route or just supercharger. So I thought I would consult you guys for some info.

    IN GENERAL and on average, how much power does a 93 5.0 put down with say gt40 heads, cobra upper and lower, and an E303 cam????

    Just need a ballpark estimate of what kind of power these mods make.

    Thanks guys.

    And yes I know, it's not the how much power you make but how low your ET's are!

    That H/C/I combo with probaly be anywhere between 260-280 rwhp. With a better set of heads like AFR, Trick Flow, Canfield, Brodix, Dart, Edelbrock, ect... it will probaly be closer to 300 rwhp.

    Yeah, I'm trying to talk him into the blower for now.

    But, I have no idea about the type of heads.... I didn't even know there were different types of GT40 heads, haha! But bascially I just wanted to get some ballpark info for him.

    Ive been trying to decide whether to go S/C or H/C/I and I decided to go with a KB super charger.

    It will sound much cooler too. :)
