    Ok so I recently got a call from a buddy of mine who purchased a 5.0 parts car and he just needed the bottom end. It has gt40 heads, intake upper and lower, fuel injectors and fuel rails, throttle body and the adapter elbow. He said $100 and I could have them all. Now my question is what all the gains if any from these parts. They were from a 5.0 explorer and are Gt40 parts. Seeing as I'm new to the mustang scene is this a good buy and what are the benefits of these parts

    Yes, take it all. The intake alone is well worth that, not to mention the heads.

    +1, go get the stuff before he changes his mind. Could probably sell it all for $3-400 easily.

    You will need to upgrade the springs in the heads, but you'll gain 40 or so rwhp if your motor is healthy.

    Buy It. That's as cheap, if not cheaper than the bone yard....and the labor is already done for you.

    Just the elbow is worth 100$ at Summit... I have the same set up on my 94. I put 40 hrs in porting the heads, upgraded Comp springs and a three angle valve job.
