95 gt with these mods- Mac shorty headers with cat less h-pipe and flowmasters, cold air intake, smog delete, erg delete, uderdrive pulleys, 4:10 gears, just wandering how much horsepower I have gained and would a bama tune do much with these mods?

If you haven't already, advance the timing. You should be able to advance to about 14*BTDC from the base of 10* and stay with 87 octane gas. Probably more hp gains here than from what you've done so far. I wouldn't get a tune with your mods. Most likely they would just advance the timing in the tune.

~245 the handheld tuners for those year 5.0's aren't that good IMO

14* on 87? You must have really good gas where you are. My car pinged like shit when my girl put 87 in instead of 93 with 14*.

slowmasters
cold air intake
smog delete
erg delete
4:10 gears


All of these combined will probably give you about 5 lol.


A 5sp with all the mods you listed should be a bit over 250 hp.
I would skip the bama tune for now. If you have dyno deals/dyno days around your area you should consider going. Getting a baseline run is always fun. I got a base test for my car for $30.

That depends on your intentions with the car as well as how much you're willing to spend.




Side note: I'm surprised your username wasn't taken.

I was surprised as well lol. It is my daily driver, and just spending a little at a time, not trying to make a race car, just a little more power

I am wanting gt-40 or cobra intake, will these be completely bolt-on? And will I need the lower as well or just upper?

Upper and lower. Bolt on if you get sn95 specific parts.

With Ferocious on this one, how was your username still available? lol.

Okay tryna break this down.
shorties, offroad h and mufflers- maybe 15-20hp
cold air intake- 3-5 hp
smog delete- 0 (less weight)
erg delete- 0 (less weight)
underdrive pulleys- maybe 5-10 hp
4:10 gears- no hp gains, no torque gains. just uses what you have and makes it feel like you gained 50 hp and a shit load of torque

So from the stock 215 rating, you might be at around 235-250ish at the crank. I have longtubes, offroad x, catback, 70mm throttlebody, 76mm maf, 4.10s.. So I have a small amount more, maybe 245-260ish. You should have around 200 rwhp on the other hand, especially since yours is stick. A GT40 & cobra intake do bolt on, it would only be beneficial if you do the lower intake aswell, than heads and cam.

210-215 rwhp at most, only way to get any higher is to do the HCI on it or port everything that's on there now and rebuild your short block for higher compression.

You need a top end. HCI, then look at tunes.

On your current HP, if your car is running well and has no issues, maybe 200 at the wheels. I know if you ad a GT40 top end plus an e-303 you should be 260-270 at the wheels. Again, assuming it's a healthy 5.0.

they are basically the same.

The real choke point on the 5.0's is the heads. IMO, don't waste your time doing just the intake till you can do the heads and cam too.

230 give or take at the wheels.

Stock cam and GT40 top end is a typical CMC1 power level, 230 at the wheels is normal.
